It might be time to test your beachwear for the summer, as dry and sunny weather heats up the weekend, the German Weather Service (DWD) said Friday.


“The nightly plunge in temperatures is over, for now,” said DWD meteorologist Dorothea Paetzold in a statement.

“Ever warmer air is coming Germany’s direction from the south, keeping things dry," she added. "Brief storms are possible beginning Sunday in the west, but that is all.”

Germany will remain mostly warm, sunny and dry on Friday, despite clouds that could cover western regions in the afternoon. High temperatures will reach 19 degrees Celsius in the northeast and 25 degrees along the Rhine River, while mountainous and coastal regions will be cooled by winds out of the southwest.

Skies Friday night will be clear, with temperatures sinking to 13 degrees in the west and 4 degrees in the southeast, where ground frost remains a possibility.

On Saturday, expect the dry, sunny weather to continue. The mercury will rise to summer-like levels, climbing to 22 degrees in the northeast and 28 degrees in the West. Saturday night’s clear skies will make for good stargazing, with temperatures hovering around 14 degrees in the west and 6 degrees in the southeast.

Sunday will see more of the same. Other than possible rain clouds and brief thunderstorms in the west, most of the country will be sunny and dry, with temperatures at 22 degrees in the northeast and 29 degrees in the southwest.

Coastal and highland regions, meanwhile, will see temperatures between 15 and 19 degrees, with a cool breeze blowing from the southeast.

Scattered thunderstorms are possible Sunday night, but most regions will remain clear, cooling down to 13 degrees in the west and 6 degrees in the Alpine foothills.
