Warmest air of the year so far to invade Germany this weekend

After wet weather ends the workweek, sunshine and mild air will settle in just in time for the weekend.

High pressure moving behind the wet weather will help bring another surge of warmth back into Germany.

"The sunniest day of the weekend will be on Saturday," AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said.

Overall, afternoon highs will range from 15-20 C (59-68 F) across Rhineland-Pfalz, Saarland, Baden-Wurttemberg and Bavaria on Saturday.

It will be cooler off to the north, with highs for cities like Cologne, Frankfurt and Berlin from ranging from 10-15 C (50-59 F).

On Sunday, the springlike warmth will engulf the entire country.

High will climb to 15-20 C (59-68 F) from Munich to Hamburg on Sunday.

For some parts of the country, these will be the highest temperatures of the year so far.

Frankfurt has reached only 15 C (59 F) so far this year, with temperatures forecast near 17 C (63 F) this weekend.

Southern Germany will likely fall short of their highest temperature this year, but it will be within a few degrees of it in places like Munich and Stuttgart.

"Even without hitting the warmest temperatures so far this year, it will be certainly feel mild for this time year across all of Germany on Sunday," Roys said.

For parts of western Germany, the warmth will also come with wet weather. Residents in Lower Saxony, North Rhine-Westphalia and Rhineland-Pfalz will have some rain showers for Sunday, so rain gear might be a good idea for those out and about throughout the day.

However, these showers should be lighter in nature than the persistent rain from earlier in the week.

"The scattered nature of the showers on Sunday means that no flooding issues are expected," Roys said.

Elsewhere across Germany, it will be dry on Sunday.

More clouds than sunshine are expected for the southern half of the country, with a mix of sun and clouds around Berlin and Hamburg.

A new storm system will move into Western Europe for Monday, bringing with it the potential for more rain across Germany.
