From Munich to Berlin, the first signs of autumn have arrived, with leaves starting to turn to gold and fall from the trees. But that hasn’t stopped the gods from shining their warm benevolence upon us.
Up and down the country over the weekend, Germans were enjoying some of the best weather of the year. And that is set to continue for much of the week.
Throughout Monday, the whole country will be enjoying the late summer sun, with temperatures ranging from 26C to 30C inland, while peaking at a slightly cooler 25 degrees on the coast, according to the German Weather Service (DWD).
Skies across the entire Bundesrepublik will be blue without a cloud in them, with the exception of the Alpine region which could experience some isolated showers.
On Tuesday and Wednesday, the story will be much the same, with temperatures rising up to 33C and not getting much cooler than 28C in most of the country. Again the Alpine region and the Black Forest could experience sudden rain storms.
But by Thursday, the first signs of a turn of the tide are set to appear. While the north and east of the country will continue to bask in warm sun under clear skies, clouds will slowly move in from the south and west, where temperatures will reach a high of 25C.
By Friday, thick clouds will have moved right up to the north of the country, but should have eased off somewhat in the south.
So make the most of the sun while it lasts… it could be your last chance in quite a long time!
