While low pressure system “Joleen” has been pushing cool, wet weather into the country from Scandinavia, a high-pressure system called “Karlheinz” is moving up from the south with warmer temperatures, DWD meteorologist Bernd Zeuschner said in a statement.

“That means for the next few days there will be dry and especially warm weather during the day in central Europe, which naturally means us too,” Zeuschner said, adding that temperatures could reach up to 25 degrees Celsius in the Upper Rhine region.

But shorter days and crisp, foggy mornings will remain part of the unavoidably “conspicuous” trappings of Altweibersommer, as Germans call Indian summer, Zeuschner said.

Monday afternoon will remain cool and rainy in the north, but central and southern regions will already be slightly warmer and dry.

The northern coast will likely see rain overnight and in the early morning on Tuesday, but the soggy weather will clear later on, bringing highs between 17 and 23 degrees. The warmest temperatures are expected in the southwest, Zeuschner said.

Wednesday will dawn with fog in many parts of the country, but more sunshine will warm things up to between 18 and 24 degrees.

Similar conditions will prevail on Thursday morning - the astronomical start to autumn - with widespread sunshine and slightly warmer temperatures, though cloud cover could move in as the day goes on, with possible showers in the north and west, the statement concluded.
