Following several rounds of cold air, this weekend will feature a rebound in temperatures as dry weather dominates across Germany.
Temperatures this week have stayed about 5 C (10 F) below normal for the middle and end of March.
The high pressure that was holding this cold air in place will move off to the east this weekend, bringing with it a surge of warmer air from the south.
All across Germany, cities will reach the 10 C (50 F) mark by Sunday. Some places in western Germany, including Frankfurt and Cologne, have the best chance of temperatures rising above 10 C on Saturday as well.
Around 10 C (50 F) is near normal the second half of March across most of Germany, including Frankfurt and Munich.
The high pressure area being nearby will continue to keep it dry throughout the day on Saturday. However, as the high moves into eastern Europe during the weekend, a weak wave of moisture will be able to move into western Germany by Sunday afternoon.
With temperatures well above freezing, precipitation is expected to come as a spotty rain shower or two.
These showers can dampen Hamburg, Bremen and Cologne on Sunday.
Following the mostly dry and seasonable weekend, more storminess is expected to return to Europe for next week.
Temperatures will again fall into the single digits C (40s F) for highs but should remain above freezing, keeping most of the precipitation as rain across the country.
