Following the chill and, in some cases, snow earlier this week, conditions will remain cool, damp and dreary late this week and into the weekend across Germany.
A broad upper-level area of low pressure will remain over Germany, leading to more showers and clouds across the country on Friday, Saturday and Sunday, according to AccuWeather Meteorologist Jordan Root. Showers will be intermittent rather than a steady rain, he said.
Temperatures will push closer to normal in Berlin, Frankfurt, Munich and Hamburg, but will still be below normal for this time of year. There could still be a chance for some rain to mix with snow in the higher elevations on Friday, but it will be too warm elsewhere for snow to fall, Root said.
Berlin's annual Oktoberfest will conclude this weekend. A normal high temperature for this time of year in Berlin is 14 C, but temperatures will settle near 11-12 C over the weekend.
For residents who are planning to head outdoors this weekend, an umbrella should be kept handy. However, showers are expected to be less widespread than on Friday.
Nighttime temperatures will approach the freezing mark in southern Germany, so motorists who happen to be on roads should be alert for possible slick spots on the roadways, Root said. That is especially true on bridges and overpasses and in the higher terrain.
