2016 Germany autumn forecast: Warmth to hold through September; Wind threat to build in November

The wet and warm summer conditions felt across most of the Germany will continue into early autumn.

"Summerlike warmth will prevail throughout September across Germany as warm air from the Mediterranean Sea is carried northward," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Alan Reppert said.

While no intense heat waves are expected, prolonged periods of above-normal warmth will occur during the first half of the season.

The warm air will help to ignite thunderstorms throughout the country in September with the greatest threat from Munich and Stuttgart to Frankfurt and Düsseldorf, where localized flash flooding is possible.

While widespread severe weather is not expected, some of the strongest thunderstorms can still produce damaging winds, hail and even a tornado.

"The greatest threat for severe thunderstorms will be across southern Germany during the first half of the season," AccuWeather Meteorologist Tyler Roys said.

The weather pattern will shift during the second half of the season as Atlantic storm systems arrive more frequently and intensely.

There will be an increased risk for damaging wind events as early as November and the threat will remain high into the winter.

During the month of November, the greatest risk for damaging winds will be across the north and west including Bremen, Hamburg and Kiel.

Brief shots of cold and dry air will follow each of these storms; however, no extended periods of cold weather are expected.

"The coldest air of the season will arrive from the east during the second half of November," Roys said.

While a few snowflakes are possible by this time, no widespread accumulating snowfall is forecast.
