The most powerful storm front seen so far this autumn is heading towards Germany, bringing strong winds and heavy rain, but also warmer temperatures.

According to the German Weather Service (DWD), the low-pressure system "Carmen" is on a high-speed course from Scotland and will pass over southern Scandinavia before hitting Germany. Strong winds will reach the country overnight Thursday, with gale-force gusts expected along the coast and at higher elevations.

Heavy rains are also expected, with thunderstorms a possibility in northwestern parts of Germany.

“This will be the strongest storm seen this autumn,” said DWD meteorologist Christian Herold in a statement.

Friday will see more showers and continued high winds in the north, possibly reaching gale-force levels on the coast.

The situation on the weekend looks calmer in the south, where sunny spells are expected. However, in northern Germany continued rain is in the forecast, although wind speeds should eventually die down.

Throughout Germany, temperatures will be mild with 19 degrees possible in the Upper Rhine region.

The weather is expected to remain variable in the near future, with alternating periods of mild and cooler temperatures.
