Wet and cold eight degrees at the weekend, spring-like up to 19 degrees on Monday, partly snow on Wednesday - the temperatures in Germany will be a real roller coaster in the coming days. According to the German Weather Service (DWD), this is due to several low-lying foothills that carry subtropical air on the front and cold arctic air on the back.
"Thus, there will be quite a contrast program in the temperatures over the next few days. Very mild phases alternate with colder phases," said a DWD meteorologist on Friday in Offenbach. Accordingly, there are still individual showers with snow and sleet on the coasts on Saturday. With maximum temperatures of three to eight degrees, it is uncomfortably cool to cold.
A warm front will then appear on Sunday, causing the temperature to rise to a mild 12 to 19 degrees on Monday. According to the information, the highest values are reached in southern Baden. There are frequent showers and thunderstorms. Even at night it stays frost-free.
"The next onset of cold air, which will bring snow again, at least in the mountains, awaits us on Wednesday," said the DWD meteorologist. How things will continue after that, however, is still uncertain. "Probably a spring-like phase awaits us towards the end of the new week," predicts the weather forecaster.
