The hot weather that moved across Germany on Thursday will reach its zenith on Friday afternoon, with temperatures in parts of the country rising above 37C.
According to the German Weather Service (DWD) a high pressure front called Frederick has moved over central Europe from North Africa, bringing with it hot dry temperatures.
In Berlin temperatures of 35C are expected in the afternoon. The region around Stuttgart will sweat under the hottest temperatures up to 37C.
But already on Friday the low pressure from Jantra will start making an impression on the north and west of the country, with temperatures unlikely to rise above 30C in these regions.
