Bouts of rain, snow and brisk winds will keep Germany unsettled into Monday before a brief turn to drier weather arrives by midweek.

Seasonably cold air will set the stage for a wintry mix of precipitation each of the next several days.

It will remain chilly throughout the country on Friday with rain and snow showers scattered across parts of the country.

Chilly air will remain entrenched across the country this weekend, setting the stage for additional rain and snow showers. Accumulating snowfall will be mainly confined to the higher elevations.

"Those heading to Christmas markets will want to bundle up as temperatures both days this weekend will average near 2 C (36 F) in Munich and Berlin and around 4 C (40 F) in Karlsruhe and Cologne," AccuWeather Senior Meteorologist Kristina Pydynowski said.

The wintry weather from this weekend will continue into Monday as a new storm drops down from the north.

"There is the potential for snow to accumulate and create slippery travel before the snow mixes with or changes to rain," Pydynowski said. "Even a small amount of snow is enough to cause disruptions for commuters."

High pressure is expected to build in behind Monday's storm, which will allow Germany to enjoy a stretch of calmer weather for Tuesday and Wednesday. However, the stormy weather pattern may resume in the days leading up to Christmas.
