Thunderstorms will return to Germany this weekend after severe storms rattled the country on Tuesday.
Hail, flooding and damaging winds were all reported across Germany on Tuesday. However, quieter weather will prevail into Friday.
The intense heat that helped to set the stage for these storms has also been swept away, and more comfortable air will settle over Germany into Thursday.
High temperatures will range from near 21 C (70 F) in the north to 27 C (80 F) in south on Thursday afternoon.
Partly to mostly sunny skies will prevail throughout the country.
Temperatures will again turn unseasonably warm on Friday and Saturday ahead of the next threat for thunderstorms.
Thunderstorms will erupt across southern and southwestern Germany on Friday afternoon before spreading across the entire country Friday night into Saturday.
