Offenbach – According to the German Weather Service (DWD), it reaches its peak of up to 40 degrees on Tuesday.
On Monday there are widespread highs of 30 to 35 degrees. “In the west, 37, maybe 38 degrees are possible. In the northeast, on the other hand, it stays a little cooler at 25 to 30 degrees,” said DWD meteorologist Marco Manitta. Sunny conditions are to be expected most of the time. Only from Schleswig-Holstein to Western Pomerania do dense clouds pass through at times, it was said.
Lows of between 19 and 11 degrees are to be expected on Tuesday night. In metropolitan areas in the west and south-west and at medium altitudes, temperatures could also be above 20 degrees at night.

In the east it will remain very hot with highs of 34 to 39 degrees. It is unclear whether rain is expected on Wednesday. So far, the weather forecast has indicated local showers and thunderstorms, but not widespread rainfall. “The great drought and the sometimes very high risk of forest fires continue,” said Manitta. dpa
