Showers to dampen Germany through midweek ahead of mild Easter weekend

Rain showers will dampen much of the country through the middle of the week, before drier and milder weather returns for the Easter holiday weekend.

Showers will be scattered throughout Germany on Tuesday and Tuesday night as a weak storm system moves through the region.

Another storm will drop southward from Scandinavia into Germany on Wednesday, continuing the threat for showers across the entire country.

The showers will be most widespread across eastern and southern areas that include Berlin, Dresden and Munich.

Skies will be mostly cloudy throughout Wednesday and the showers will be accompanied by chilly air as high temperatures only reach 6-8 C (43-46 F).

Showers will briefly dampen areas from Hamburg to Frankfurt and Stuttgart, though any shower in these areas will last less than 15 minutes, with some areas remaining dry throughout the day.

Thick clouds will give way to occasional brightening skies during the afternoon across western Germany, though it will be chilly throughout the day. High temperatures will range from 8-10 C (46-50 F).

Showers will linger into Thursday morning across Bavaria and Baden Wurttemberg while high pressure arriving from the west brings dry weather from Cologne to Berlin.

High temperatures throughout the country will range from 8-10 C (46-50 F), despite only limited sunshine.

Looking ahead to the holiday weekend, showers will dampen the day on Friday followed by a drier and milder day on Saturday to enjoy a trip to the Easter Markets.

Another storm will bring rain to Hamburg, Cologne and Frankfurt on Easter Sunday, while a dry and mild day is expected in Berlin and Munich.
