First report from February 18, 2021
Munich – The weather in Germany could hardly be more different in such a short time. After the country was firmly in the grip of the Siberian cold for the past two weeks, spring is knocking on the door. Last weekend, for example, the thermometer in Munich * still showed up to minus seventeen degrees at night. Now the extreme turnaround: At the weekend and at the beginning of the new week, spring will hit Germany completely – temperatures of up to 20 degrees are then possible – not only in Munich.
Weather in Germany: Grill weather all over the country – up to 20 degrees possible
Like meteorologist Dominik Jung from the weather portal wetter.net explains, in Germany the mild weather will initially prevail with full force. As early as Thursday, February 18, temperatures of up to 15 degrees will be reached in the west and south-west of the country. Over the weekend, the weather will continue to warm up – by Sunday, temperatures of 19 degrees will be reached in the west and especially in Breisgau.
Spring also strikes in Munich, where Jung is supposed to shine in the sun for the entire weekend, but the maximum is not reached at temperatures of 16 degrees. At the beginning of the week, temperatures in Upper Bavaria climb up to 18 degrees. In the southwest, the magical limit of 20 degrees should then be reached. But spring fans should slow their expectations – the mild weather is only a short interlude before – according to long-term forecasts – winter wins the upper hand again.
Weather: Long-term forecasts speak for themselves – winter is coming back again
Like Dominik Jung from wetter.net explained further, there are no signs of a sustainable spring breakthrough in March. On the basis of long-term forecasts of the European weather model EZMWF (European Center for Medium-Term Weather Forecasts) it can be seen that winter in Germany is not yet blowing away. The model analyzes various long-term forecasts and uses them to create a forecast that also covers periods in the distant future.
For March, according to meteorologist Dominik Jung, one thing can be clearly seen: As of now, no temperature anomalies will be seen. The maps over Germany are marked with white color, which means that the month is forecast neither too warm nor too cold. Accordingly, so Jung. According to current calculations, a continuation of winter is therefore likely.
Weather: March forecast speaks for itself: “It’s going to be cold again”
Not just Dominik Jung von wetter.net sees the situation like this. Also Jan Schenk from The Weather Channel Deutschland assesses the situation similarly: “It’s getting cold again. We shouldn’t get too used to these 20 degrees, ”says Jung. “Severe frost” is particularly common at night. According to the forecasts, March will “probably be too cool.” Due to the higher position of the sun, however, the temperatures warmed up more than in the past.
Nevertheless, it could even be enough for new snowfall, so Schenk. “We’ll have to get used to the fact that winter is coming back.” This is due to the Azores high, which is reestablishing itself and blocking the jet stream, freeing up the way for cold air to reach Germany. *tz.de is part of the nationwide Ippen digital editorial network
