According to the forecast, the weather in the new week will be “quite uncomfortable at times”. It can even snow at times on the highest peaks of the low mountain range.
Offenbach – Indian summer is rare. “On the contrary: In the new week it will be quite uncomfortable at times,” says Felix Dietzsch from the German Weather Service (DWD) in Offenbach. Autumn strikes “right. A powerful low-pressure area over the Norwegian Sea is directing a large slug of polar cold air directly from the north to us in Germany.”
On Monday it will rain mainly in the west. “Lightning can sometimes occur near the coast,” explains Dietzsch. It’s supposed to be windy too.
To be continued in the following days: “The sky is grey-on-grey, and there will be almost nothing to be seen from the sun. It rains again and again, and there are repeated sleet thunderstorms towards the North Sea,” added the DWD expert.
The highest peaks could already be white
It could even snow at times on the highest peaks of the low mountain ranges in the new week. In the Alps, the snow line drops to well below 1500 meters.
According to Dietzsch, it will remain mild for the longest time in Lusatia at almost 20 degrees at the beginning. After that, the maximum temperatures will drop everywhere. In the middle of the week they level off between about 8 and 14 degrees during the day. dpa
