Soon the whole of Germany is in the summer break. And because many do not travel because of the Corona pandemic in southern countries, there is at the Moment nothing more exciting than the question of how the weather develops here in the next few weeks. Because up to now, the summer showed more of his whimsical side: let the sun rain, at times, sometimes cold, sometimes warm.
But that is soon to be closing, explains Jan Schenk from "The Weather Channel": "Starting in mid-July, the weather in Germany is more stable", says the meteorologist. And then we can look forward to the end of August on beautiful weeks long so grow and humid as the last few weeks.

"so Far, the summer was more of a classic summer, as it is usual in Germany," explains Schenk. Because of this changeable weather for our latitude, completely normal. The many rainfall are good for the nature. "A further heat of the summer would not have been for the water budget," said Schenk.
But because it has become in the last few years in this country is much drier and warmer, a we feel the current weather situation rather badly. "For the last 15 years, we have seen a new summer pattern with a dry and hot climate, thanks to the high-pressure conditions," said Schenk. So were in the last 13 years 11 summer in the new pattern, so that one could not speak of a deviation.
this summer is so far of this new standard differs, and in fact, to date, a normal mixed summer brings, at the Polarjet over the North Atlantic, which ensures that a low pressure area after another, our weather conditions can spread.
as of mid-July, this gradually disappears, so that high-pressure areas can be spread over Germany, bringing in warm air and Sunny weather.
For August, the forecasts are even better: This should be according to the gift of the warmest and most beautiful month of the year. Not to extreme heat, such as in the last two years, but it remains hot and predominantly dry.By warming of the Arctic, it is more common to high-pressure conditions
Why does our summer climate so dramatically is probably due to the marked decrease of sea ice in the Arctic. "Where once ice, is now water so that the surface condition and the radiation have changed the household of the earth, and thus also the weather and the climate," says Schenk. As the Arctic warms up more, and thus a more frequent occurrence of high-pressure layers in the case of us – beautiful summer weather.
