First, however, the people in Central Germany have to survive a mixed Friday and Saturday.

According to the German Weather Service (DWD), it should stay cool, rainy and cloudy, especially on Friday with highs of 11 degrees. On Saturday the temperatures rise to 17 degrees, in the mountains to 14 degrees. In addition, the sun shows up more and more often.

Just in time for Mother’s Day, the summer should then unfold its power for the first time.

“Sunday morning is still quite fresh, but in the course of the day it gets really warm in all three countries. On Monday even the 30-degree mark is scratched locally,” said Peter Zedler of the DWD in Leipzig on Friday.

But summer is only here for a short time. In the middle of the week, the temperatures drop back to 15 to 20 degrees and the probability of rain increases.

Refreshment in the beer garden at the weekend is only possible in Magdeburg. Here the seven-day incidence on Friday was below 100 for the fifth working day in a row, which is why the Federal emergency brake can be omitted from Sunday. In Saxony and Thuringia, the nationwide Corona hotspots, on the other hand, there is no hope of easing in the coming days.
