Weekend weather is sure to wow barbeque, beach and bike fans, with temperatures topping 31 degrees in some areas of Germany, data from the German Weather Service showed on Saturday.

In many parts of the country the outdoor swimming pool season begins on May 1 and pool operators are hoping for a better season than last year, which was dominated in part by cold and rainy weather.

The late April weather is a far cry from what it was just a few weeks ago, when weather experts noted that temperatures on Easter were colder than at Christmas.

While there might be a few scattered showers in the north and northwest of the country, a warm weather front moving in will push temperatures to between 24 and 29 degrees for much of the country, German weather forecasters said.

Sunbathers in the south should slop on the sunscreen on, as temperatures are expected to top out at 31 degrees. Those in the north and northwest will have highs of 17, the weather service said.

On Sunday it is expected to remain sunny and warm in the eastern part of the country, with temperatures in Berlin rising to about 30 degrees. The western area may see some heavy rain showers.

Monday should see some rain and storms over parts of the country, with temperatures ranging from a high of 17 on the coast to 27 in the southeast. Similar temperatures are seen for Tuesday, though it is expected to be fairly dry throughout most of the country.
