Germany: Mild air to return despite showers late this week

Following the return of cooler air to Germany during the middle of the week, a surge of mild air will overspread the country from Friday into Saturday.

A warm front will cross Germany from east to west on Friday, ushering this milder air into the region.

The front will also bring showers to some locations with most lasting 15 minutes or less.

The best chance for showers will be in areas such as Hamburg, Frankfurt and Stuttgart during the morning before dampening Berlin, Dresden and Nuremberg in the afternoon.

Even with clouds and showers expected, high temperatures will climb to near 11 C (52 F) in Frankfurt. Milder air will reach Berlin by the end of the day sending the temperature to 7 C (45 F).

These higher temperatures will persist across all of Germany this weekend; however, wet weather will threaten any outdoor plans on Sunday.

While Sunday will not be a washout, an umbrella may be needed in the south and west where showers are expected to be most widespread.

A potent storm system will then bring the threat for damaging winds to Germany early next week. The exact track and intensity will determine which locations are at greatest risk.

"There is the potential for wind gusts over 80 km/h (50 mph) that could result in travel delays and power cuts," AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said.
