This week Germany will experience further warm temperatures. Sunshine and blue skies should be a permanent feature across most of central and northern Germany with some more stormy weather expected down south.

Over the course of the next four days expect rising temperatures and sun-filled afternoons. The German Weather Service (DWD) has predicted consistent highs of between 25 and 31 degrees Celsius across most regions in Germany. Areas along the coast and near mountainous ranges will be a little cooler but still firmly in the 20s.

The east will be a little cloudier with some light showers possible later in the week. The northwest will also experience periods of drizzle near the North Sea and some overcast days.

If you're spending the week in the south of Germany you may need an umbrella as DWD reports heavy rainfall and cumulus clouds present this week in the area from the Black Forest to the foothills of the Alps, and later in the week in the Saarland to Lower Bavaria region.

Scattered thunderstorms and hail are to be expected in these areas over the next few days. Apart from these shifting thunderstorms winds will be fairly weak across Germany this week.

Nights will mostly be clear and dry with only isolated showers and storms in the south.

The UV-Intensity is rising again in the southwest this week to UV-Index 8, so make sure to keep your sun cream handy.

Also due to some extreme dryness, many places may experience a higher risk of wildfire.
