The early taste of September and wet weather across Germany will gradually be replaced by more pleasant conditions Sunday into Monday.
Residents across Germany will continue to need umbrellas for outdoor plans on Saturday as additional showers and pockets of steadier rain will follow the slow-moving storm soaking the country through Friday night.
The wettest conditions and greatest disruptions to outdoor plans can be expected in northern and western areas.
Saturday will feel more like September with highs averaging 16-20 C (60s F) on a day when highs of 20-26 C (68-78 F) are more common.
Clouds should break enough for skygazers to see some of the Perseid Meteor Shower on Saturday night across northern Germany. More clouds may obscure the view to the south.
While a shower or two will still be around on Sunday, many more communities will welcome drier and milder weather with occasional sunshine.

“Even locations that do experience a shower or two will be dry much of the day with rainfall generally lasting 30 minutes or less,” AccuWeather Meteorologist Eric Leister said.
Temperatures throughout Germany will rebound by a few degrees with highs ranging from 20-23 C (68-73 F) to end the weekend.
Sunshine and warmer weather will win out across the country on Monday with high pressure overhead. The only exception may be across the higher terrain in the afternoon if spotty showers and thunderstorms erupt.
Temperatures will climb to 24-27 C (76-81 F) from Cologne to Stuttgart and Munich and 21-24 C (70-75 F) from Hamburg to Berlin.
The warming trend will continue into Tuesday ahead of a cold front, the timing of which will determine whether thunderstorms may disrupt outdoor Assumption Day activities in Saarland.
