A swirling high pressure system will move across the country in the coming days, pushing out the low that has been drenching the country in rain, said DWD meteorologists, predicting a much nicer weekend coming than the last.
Wednesday night will still be cloudy and rainy, though – with a particularly laden sky in the north. With lows of between 7C and 0C, the small hours could feel a bit wintery, especially in rural areas where they will likely be a light frost.
As Thursday arrives, clouds will start slowly to lift. Only the north-western states will remain dull – there won't be rain though. Highs of between 10C and 14C along the coast and up to 18C - 23C inland should make for a comfortable, if not windy, day.
Night will bring gentle rain across the north, but will be dry everywhere else. It should be a bit warmer though, with temperatures not likely to drop below 6C. Only in much higher parts of the country will it be cooler.
Friday will start to really warm up, with rain limited to the south west. Central and south-eastern states will be clear while the north will remain dry despite scattered clouds. It should be between 15C to 20C, with highs of 23C around the Alps.
Rain will dampen outdoor party plans for those in central Germany on Friday night, but other states will stay dry. Lows should be between 2C to 7C.
This rain will continue to fall through Saturday in the middle of the country. Across the north and south it will likely stay dry with highs up to 19C, making for a perfect spring day. In the southernmost areas of Bavaria temperatures will climb above 20C.
Sunset will see the rain drying up, with scattered clouds the theme of Saturday night. As will be manageable lows of between 6C and 3C.
