After several days of chilly April showers, the Germany's weather is set to improve with increasing temperatures and widespread sunshine, the German Weather Service (DWD) reported.

“After the early hours of Thursday, when there was still some frost in Franconia and snow fell on the Fichtelberg peak, there will be a significant weather improvement in the coming days,” DWD meteorologist Helmut Malewski said in a statement.

By Sunday temperatures up to a balmy 20 degrees Celsius are expected, though frost could still coat the ground in isolated areas before dawn.

“Otherwise the sun will show itself often and it will be free of rain. A real springtime weekend is at the door,” Malewski said.

While cool, rainy conditions will persist through Friday night, things will begin to improve over the course of the day as cloud cover disperses and temperatures reach up to 16 degrees in the southwest.

Saturday will be dry and sunny with high temperatures ranging between 11 degrees in the north and 17 degrees in the south.

Chilly spring nighttime temperatures are still expected, though, with lows dipping to between zero and five degrees, Malewski forecast.

Sunday morning fog will quickly disperse for another dry and bright day with highs between 15 and 19 degrees, though it will be a bit more brisk in coastal areas.
