Low pressure has brought a few chilly, drizzly days to large stretches of the country, but a higher pressure system will move in by Saturday, according to state weather service DWD on Friday.
The latter half of Friday afternoon will be rainy for the north and eastern states, while in the west and south it will be clear and dry until sunset.
As night arrives the north will remain clouded over, but dry. The south will be patchy with a chance of fog and in the Alps there will likely be a light frost. Lows of 6C to 0C should be expected, making it chilly.
Saturday will see higher pressure pushing temperatures up to highs of 15C on the north coast and 21C inland. The whole country should see some sun with a very gentle breeze. But in the very far west it could still be a bit cloudy.
Clear skies will be the theme of Saturday night, which means that it will remain relatively cool with lows of 0C in rural areas and 7C in towns and cities. It could also be foggy, said the DWD.
Any fog from the night before will clear by Sunday morning, as really warm air will settle across Germany bringing highs of 23C in the west.
Everywhere else will be slightly cooler, but not by much. There will be a light, easterly breeze.
Sunday night will not only be an hour shorter due to the clocks going forward, but also continue to be clear and dry.
Only the very north east will see a few clouds gathering. Lows will be the same as the night before, ranging from 0C to 7C. And a frost will still be a possibility in the Alps.
Monday will remain sunny and dry, signalling the beginning of April. Highs of 22C are expected and the wind will remain at a minimum.
