It will feel more like late April or early May across Germany this week before cooler, wet weather arrives for the weekend.
High pressure to the east of Germany will pull warm air throughout the country this week with temperatures averaging 6-10 C (10-20 F) above normal.
Temperatures will range from 10-12 C (50-54 F) across northern Germany on Wednesday while southern areas can expect temperatures ranging from 13-16 (55-60 F).
Cooler air arriving in the northwest will limit the warmth in Bremen, Hamburg and Kiel on Friday with the cooler, more seasonable air spreading over the entire country by Saturday.
The area of high pressure will also shield the country from any widespread rainfall.
A weak frontal boundary will cause a few brief showers in eastern Germany on Wednesday; otherwise, dry weather will prevail across the country through Thursday.
A second frontal boundary will bring a more widespread chance for showers to central and northern Germany on Friday.
