Germany is still experiencing high temperatures and summer weather. But soon it could get unpleasantly wet. A low is coming, which will bring rain and thunderstorms.
This could lead to flooding
Some rain and thunderstorms are expected in western Germany on Tuesday. In some places it can lead to flooding.
According to the German Meteorological Service (DWD), storms and heavy rain are expected in Rhineland-Palatinate, Hesse, North Rhine-Westphalia and Saarland. During the night and on Wednesday, heavy rain may occur.
More sunshine at the weekend
Climate expert Dr. Karsten Brandt of the website Donnerwetter.de predicts temperatures of less than 20 degrees Celsius and rain on Thursday and Friday in eastern Germany.
But according to the synoptics there is a chance that the weekend will bring more sunshine again. Temperatures will range from around 20°C to a maximum of 25°C. Unfortunately the high temperatures of the past few days might not come back this year.
This is what the weather will be like in Germany over the next few days:
Tuesday: 21 °C to 29 °C, initially sunny and very warm, then becoming increasingly cloudy from the west, with occasional showers and thunderstorms
Wednesday: 19°C to 25°C, changeable weather, still with occasional showers and thunderstorms, heavy rain and flooding in places
Thursday: 19°C to 24°C, sunshine and clouds, with occasional showers
Friday: 18°C to 23°C, changeable weather but quite warm, with occasional showers
Saturday: 18°C to 24°C, mostly sunny and dry
Sunday: 17°C to 23°C, not as warm as in recent days but quite pleasant temperatures
Meteorologists predict that a high will build up over Germany over the weekend, bringing stable, sunny weather. All indications are that despite everything this September will be quite pleasant, which can make up for the weather interlude of the previous two summer months.
