After the darkest winter in over 60 years, finally a reason to be cheerful: throw off those winter coats, the German weather service is predicting a warm, sunny week with temperatures up to 15 degrees.
- Sunny spring to make good for current gloom (23 Feb 13)
- Snow returns as spring seems far, far away (22 Feb 13)
- Winter will be 'darkest on record' in Germany (18 Feb 13)
Things will begin to warm up as early as Monday, with temperatures rising all over the country to between eight and 10 degrees.
Western Germany will see the best weather in the early part of the week, where sunshine will push temperatures up to 11 degrees in Cologne on Monday. Tuesday will see temperatures reach between seven and 12 degrees with clear skies and gentle breezes and highs of up to 15 degrees forecast in the west.
On Thursday and Friday the weather will deteriorate slightly, with clouds developing and a small chance of light rain in central areas, but it will still remain warmer everywhere than in recent weeks, with temperatures between nine and 13 degrees.
Nights will remain cooler, with temperatures dropping down to 0 degrees in some places during the week.
