Germany: A gusty wind, but mild to start February

It will seem like temperatures are on a roller coaster ride across Germany into Monday as mild and cooler air compete.

While Sunday was cooler across much of the country, Monday will once again bring a surge of milder air to many places as calendars turn over to February.

As a warm front pushes to the east of the country, temperature will rebound, rising back to near 10 C (50 F). Temperatures will even push to near 13 C (55 F) in southern areas such as Munich.

Afternoon highs across the country are normally about 1 or 4 C (34 to 39 F) at the start of February.

Rain that moved across the country on Sunday and Sunday night will continue to dampen parts of the east on Monday morning. Wet conditions will be found in Berlin, Rostock and Dresden during the morning, which could lead to a slower-than-normal commute.

However, as this rain continues to push to the east into Poland, much of eastern Germany will see rain end for the afternoon, making for a drier commute in the evening. Despite rain ending, clouds will be slow to break and sunshine will be limited.

In the wake of this warm front, mild air will pour across the entire country. Highs will range from 9 to 13 C (upper 40s to middle 50s F). The first day of February will feel more like the calendar has been flipped to late March or early April.

Gusty winds will also return with the mild surge. "There will be gusts over 65 km/h (40 mph) across far northern Germany on Monday and as high as 80 km/h (50 mph) along the coast," AccuWeather Meteorologist Courtney Spamer said.

Central and southern areas will have wind gusts of 50-65 kph (30-40 mph) during the afternoon.

Mild conditions will continue to be felt on Tuesday in southern parts of the country. In these areas dry conditions will dominate and there will be breaks of sunshine.

While temperatures will still be above average in central and northern Germany on Tuesday, a cold front will promote rain across the center of the country from around Cologne and Frankfurt to Leipzig. This front will cause temperatures to be a few degrees lower in the northern areas.
