The German weather service has warned that the mercury is going to be rising quite quickly starting on Thursday.


The German weather service DWD said that Thursday will see temperatures rise to as high as 30C in the northwest, up to 33C in the northeast and up to 36C in certain parts of the south, particularly in Rhineland-Palatinate and Baden-Württemberg.

But it’s not all sunshine and picnics for the whole country: parts of the west and northwest are also set to be hit by thunderstorms. And the Black Forest region in the south is also predicted to have some scattered, warm thunderstorms.

But Friday is going to see more heat as areas in the east around Berlin and Leipzig are predicted to boil in 35C weather, while southern parts of Germany get up to 34C.

The weekend is supposed to see some relief from the blistering heat, though that means rain throughout the country for Saturday, including thunderstorms with hail and high winds in the east and south.

The west and northwest will get more sun though, the DWD reported.

Milder temperatures in the 20s and more showers are expected on Sunday and into Monday.
