Germans bundle up for another week of snow and arctic chill

Another round of arctic air will blast Germany this week after a cold weekend.

A high will move from Belgium early in the week to central Germany on Wednesday. This will usher in a wave of arctic air that will bring another dose of wintry temperatures.

"The snowcover over southeastern Germany will contribute to the cold, making it the chilliest spot in the country this week," AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said.

"For parts of Saxony, Thuringia and Bavaria, afternoon highs of -4 to -1 C (25-30 F) are expected into Thursday."

The wintry chill extends farther northward into Berlin and Hamburg.

On Wednesday and into Friday, highs in Berlin will top out near only minus 2 C (28 F). The normal afternoon temperature for the capital city is around 1 C (35 F). Lows each night will drop down between minus 9 and minus 6 C (15 to 20 F).

The cold air will not be the only factor contributing to the wintry feel this week.

"A snow squall will push through Mecklenburg-Western Pomeranian, Berlin, Brandenburg and Saxony-Anhalt on Tuesday," Roys added. "Snow will taper off early on Wednesday but not before leaving 25-75 mm (1-3 inches) of fresh snow on the ground."

With the exception of this squall, cold air brought in by the high pressure will keep it relatively dry across the country into Friday.

"Despite the dry weather, fog could cause visibility issues on Thursday morning," Roys said.

Those traveling early on Thursday could see minor delays and should use caution on the roadways.

The next wave of wet weather looks to wait for the weekend. However, by this time, temperatures across much of the country will return to near-normal levels.
