In the course of global warming, the occurrence of weather extremes is expected to increase in the coming years. It is particularly important in the context of extreme weather events such as heavy rain or storms that the population is reached with forecasts and warnings at an early stage. At present, there are many assumptions, but no reliable information about the ways in which people obtain information about the weather. It is unclear, for example, whether weather reports on TV and radio still reach large parts of the population or whether people tend to orient themselves individually towards weather apps on their smartphones.
