T-shirt weather won't continue

Many Germans flocked to parks in T-shirts and shorts Saturday, while ice cream dealers did a brisk business and cafe-goers had to look long and hard for an empty chair outside.

You should enjoy the sun and somewhat warmer temperatures as much as you can Sunday, German weather forecasters say. It won't last.

While temperatures Saturday reached a high of 23 degrees Celsius in some parts of the country, they dropped to the mid-teens Sunday. Though the sun was out, at least during the morning, in most parts of the country.

The German Weather Service reported some scattered showers are expected for later Sunday and by Monday things will have cooled off.

There's even the possibility of snow in low mountain ranges, the forecasters said.

On Monday temperatures are expected to range from 8 to 13 degrees.

But there's hope for warmer weather later in the week. Temperatures are expected to rise to above 20 degrees by Thursday.

The background terrain of the picture looks more like a south Europe country than Germany. Germans on holiday in Spain or Portugal would be more my guess.

Wow! Here in the southern part of the United States it's 85 degrees. I feel like I'm dying from the cold when it reaches 40 degrees. I wouldn't dare wear a t-shirt in anything under 65 degrees. Crazy.

Ummm... haven't you hear of Degrees CELSIUS?

Hint... Only the US uses the nonsensical Fahrenheit temperature scale (where 100 degrees F was defined as the melting point of Butter!!!!). Pretty much everyone else in the entire world uses the Celsius temperature scale. The temperature of 23 degrees Celsius the article quotes is 73.4 degrees F.

Yes... well. I'm going to start actually paying more attention to what I read. *facepalm*

There are still crazy people who wear t-shirts in freezing weather.
