Anyone with outdoor plans across eastern Germany on Sunday will have to contend with rounds of rain and gusty winds.
While the steadiest of the rain will shift into eastern Germany, showers may impact travel to and from Bundesliga matches. While rain is expected to remain light, showers could deteriorate pitch conditions.
The steadiest rain will fall across northern and eastern Germany, including Hamburg, Berlin and Dresden where 5-10 mm (0.20-0.39 of an inch) is expected. In Munich, Sunday is expected to begin with rain, but drier conditions should return during the afternoon.
The best locations for outdoor activities will be across western portions of the country, including at Opel Arena and Borussia Park where Bundesliga will be held.
Although it will be drier compared to eastern portions of the country, isolated showers could dampen the matches.
Gusty winds will also continue to accompany the rain with frequent gusts of 55-75 km/h (34-46 mph) expected across northern Germany. Gusts to 80 km/h (50 mph) are even possible along the coast.

Gusty winds will affect the remainder of Germany with frequent gusts of 30-50 km/h (19-31 mph).
The turn to wet weather will hold temperatures below the recent April-like highs.
Temperatures on Sunday will rise to near 10-15 C (50-59 F) across the majority of the country. The exception will be across Mecklenburg, where highs will peak at only 6-9 C (43-48 F).
