From western Germany all the way up to Scandinavia, summer weather will make a comeback this week. High temperatures will be between 19 and 31 degrees Celsius, the DWD said from their Offenbach headquarters.
The long-awaited sunshine will only forsake the southern state of Bavaria on Tuesday, where residents in the southeast may have to contend with rain showers. Otherwise the sky will be clear and dry for sun-starved Germans who have suffered through a rainy summer so far.
Clouds will roll in on Tuesday night as temperatures cool to between 11 and 17 degrees Celsius, but Wednesday will dawn sunny and warm with temperatures between 23 and 31 degrees Celsius.
Thursday will remain warm with just a few clouds in the northwest, the DWD reported. The northern coast will reach highs of 23 degrees Celsius, while southern Germany will reach 30 degrees Celsius.
