Large swaths of Germany may be underwater, but the week ahead should be sunny for most regions, national weather service the DWD said on Monday. Rain could still fall in some flooded areas, however.


Monday afternoon will see lengthy spells of rain in the south and south-east, some even coupled with thunderstorms and gusty winds. Central, northern and western states will be dry with a liberal coating of cloud. Temperatures should stay between 15C and 21C everywhere and climb up to 23C in the sunshine.

By nighttime, the south will still be plagued by rain. As will the south-west despite being dry during the day. Elsewhere should be dry with patches of cloud and temperature lows between 13C and 8C.

Tuesday will be partially cloudy for the south of the country, and slowly get darker through the day as rain and storms set in. The north will be drier and sunnier for some, with balmy national highs of between 18C and 23C.

Tuesday night will be between 13C and 8C. Clouds should clear across most of the country and in some places, fog will build up.

As Wednesday arrives, so will slightly sunnier weather. Only in the south-east will it stay very cloudy with a high chance of rain. The rest of the country, except the north-west, will see clear blue skies. Temperatures will begin to climb, hitting 25C for those lucky enough to be in the right place.

During Wednesday night the weather should stay dry and in some places, clear. It will be a little warmer in comparison to the past few nights, with lots between 16C and 9C.

Thursday will see showery, stormy weather in the north-west and a clear, dry day everywhere else. Temperatures will reach 22C along the coast and a sticky 27C further inland. In the Upper Rhine area, it could even be 29C.
