    Following up on the comments in the thread earlier, there is a nice example of weather warning systems abroad which might interest people:

    there is a cold front moving slowly eastwards through Southern Germany in the Munich area. The system has thunderstorms embedded.

    As the system advances, weather warnings are given out for particular regions (here in red and pink):

    As the storm approaches, the areas coloured red and pink will move accordingly and the warnings will be called off for the areas affected now, and light up for the areas that will be affected next. I believe that updates are every quater of an hour.

    The warnings in the pink areas are being given out by the DWD for rain and hail amounting to 30l/m² in an hour, hail up to 3cm diameter and wind gusts of up to Beaufort 10. I understand that the civil authorities in the various regions are also informed, and depending upon the severity of the expected weather, fire crews will be on standby in their engines at strategic points around the region (not always in the stations) and possibly the technical assistance people will alerted as well. They have depots and lorries with pumps, tents, sandbags and other technical equipment for civil emergencies.
