Hot weather here to stay: Another week of muggy days in Germany

Prepare yourselves: This hot German weather we’re having isn’t going anytime soon. In fact, things only look set to get more extreme, as this week’s soaring temperatures and high humidity bring the threat of thunderstorms, heavy rain and hailstones. 

Heatwave continues in Germany

After a weekend that brought the hottest day of the year, the heatwave continues. In the coming days and beyond the middle of the week, sweat will continue to be the order of the day in Germany. As the German Weather Service (DWD), reports, “Emil” continues to spread over northern Europe and prevents any cooling Atlantic air from reaching Germany. 

Those in the middle and the south of the country will suffer especially from humid, muggy days and tropical nights - with thermometer readings expected to climb up to 37 degrees in some regions. Towards the end of the week, the rising humidity will bring the threat of thunderstorms, with heavy rain, the odd hail shower and gusts of up to 85 kilometres per hour. Only the very north and very south of the country will be saved from the storms. 

Muggy, stormy weather forecast in Germany this week

Both Monday and Tuesday this week will see temperatures between 30 and 37 degrees, and 28 degrees at the coast, with a few isolated showers and thunderstorms. The rest of the week will remain hot and humid, with temperatures hovering between 29 and 36 degrees, and the occasional patch of heavy rain.

Through Friday and into the weekend, the weather will become more unstable as the humidity rises, and the night into Friday will see some particularly severe thunderstorms brewing, everywhere except for the extreme northwest. Saturday and Sunday will both see very changeable, muggy weather, with friendly weather repeatedly giving over to thunderstorms and heavy showers.

Unfortunately, the rain won’t necessarily bring any relief from the heat. Instead, it looks set to remain muggy, with maximum temperatures stagnating around the 30-degree mark, and between 20 and 14 degrees at night. Now might be a good time to take a look at our tips for getting a good night’s sleep during a heatwave!
