A system of high pressure building over the UK is set to treat continental Europe to some sunnier weather, with rainfall calming and clouds lifting – particularly in southern states of Germany.
Thursday should start with a dry morning for most of the country but with patches of cloud cover. Down in the south and southwest of the country it will be an especially nice day, according to the DWD who are predicting temperatures of between 23 and 27 degrees Celsius.
The north will be a little cooler on Thursday with highs of between 17 and 22 degrees. A gentle breeze will drift across the country, barely affecting the temperature – except along German coast where it will be a little windier, and cooler.
But in the foothills of the Alps down south, the occasional storm could plague walkers towards the afternoon, said the DWD.
Friday will be clearer still, with even fewer patches of clouds – except in the Alps which will once again be hit with the worst of the weather and may well see heavy showers.
In the northern and northeastern states, clouds will gather throughout the day and deliver the odd thunder clap, with warmer temperatures up to 28 degrees Celsius.
Weather in the west is set to be less eventful, with temperatures reaching highs of 27 degrees.
During the night it will remain mostly dry but temperatures will sink to between nine and 15 degrees.
By Saturday, people from north to south could well find themselves rejoicing – as a dry day has been predicted almost everywhere with highs of up to 28 degrees inland and 20 along the coast.
