The pattern of unsettled weather that has caused rounds of flooding across Germany in recent weeks will continue this week.
A series of storms will unleash rounds of rainfall while also keeping any heat from building across the country.
Tuesday will feature rain and thunderstorms across western and central Germany, with heavy downpours heightening the flooding threat across parts of southern Germany in the afternoon.
The highest risk for flooding will be from Stuttgart and Munich southward into the Alps lasting into Tuesday night. There will also be a risk for mudslides in the higher terrain.
Wednesday will be one of the driest days of the week across Germany as showers are limited to the far south and west.
Temperatures will range from 20 C (68 F) in the west to near 27 F (80 F) in the east, with a mixture of clouds and sunshine across the country.
Rainfall will again spread over the country from Wednesday night into Friday.
While flooding will not be a widespread concern, areas that get repeated downpours will be at risk for flooding and travel disruptions.

Along with the threat for rainfall, high temperatures will tumble below 21 C (70 F) across most of the country on Thursday and Friday.
Drier weather is expected over the weekend, despite a cold front that will cause a few showers across northern and central parts of the country.
Even locations that do experience a shower or two will be dry much of the day, with rainfall generally lasting 30 minutes or less.
This cold front will continue to keep any warmth from returning to the country into early next week.
