Thick clouds are set to cover the country on Friday night, particularly in the southeastern states, before lifting in the early hours. Temperatures will rest at around eight degrees Celsius in the south and 13 along the coast.
The wind should also reach gale force in mountainous areas of the country and remain relatively fresh in the north.
Most of Germany will likely wake up to a grey day on Saturday, as a thick layer of clouds is expected to cover large areas and bring rain.
The low pressure system bringing this miserable morning should skip over the very south of the country though, “where almost no rain will fall,” said DWD meteorologist Johanna Anger.
By the afternoon, the clouds should be dispersed by the strong winds, which are set to pick up throughout the day. Temperatures should stick between 17 and 21 degrees Celsius.
By Saturday night skies will have cleared in most states, pushing the temperatures down to lows of eight degrees. The coast may be a little warmer though, with lows resting at around 12 degrees. The wind should shift from the westerly to a calmer southwesterly.
The DWD reported that Sunday should offer a little relief from the past couple of dreary days, when “widespread sunshine and dry high pressure-weather will push temperatures up slightly to between 19 and 23 degrees,” said Anger.
But Germans should make the most of the Sunday sun, since by Monday clouds are forecast to build back up during the night. The north could be very wet and grey while a few thunder storms may happen along the coastline.
The south should be clearer though, with little to no wind. Temperatures will not climb higher than 18 degrees Celsius in the north and between 19 and 23 in the south.
During the night the cloudy north, clear south divide is set to remain and temperatures should sink to between 12 and eight degrees.
Anger had some bad news for the north of Germany, as chilly, rainy days will dominate the coming days.
