A cold front is bringing a brief chance to recover from the weekend’s scorching heat, with milder temperatures predicted for early this week, the German Weather Service (DWD) reported on Monday.


After highs climbed to well above 30 degrees Celsius on Saturday, topping out at 37.1 in Minden county in the state of North Rhine-Westphalia, more amenable summer weather is in store, the DWD said from its headquarters in Offenbach.

Most of the country on Monday will see friendly skies with highs of between 20 and 30 degrees, though storms could be in store for residents south of the Danube and in eastern Brandenburg, where the warmest temperatures are expected.

Thunder storms are likely in store for the north and the east overnight, with highs dropping to between 12 and 17 degrees, the DWD said.

The storms will continue on Tuesday morning in the east, but the rest of the country will be dry and pleasant, with northern temperatures ranging between 20 and 25, and the southern half of the country reaching up to 28 degrees.

Highs are expected to begin climbing again on Wednesday, breaching the 30 degree mark in the west and south as sunshine and clear skies continue. In some parts of the country even overnight temperatures won’t drop below 20 degrees, the DWD said.
