Moving into the night, the DWD said that rain and the occasional thunder clap are to be expected across northern and eastern Germany. Temperatures will stay at minimum of 14 degrees.

On Saturday, wild weather warnings for the north west should be lifted as the low pressure system settles in a band from the south west to the north east. This clammy cloud band could bring hail, electric storms and very heavy rain as the day moves into the mdid-afternoon.

Temperatures in the sunny south east should reach up to 33 degrees Celsius while along the coast they will remain at around 22 degrees.
