Offenbach (dpa) – Before the hot air of the Sahara next summer's summer, Germany can be looking forward to the summer time without the oozing sparine.

"During the weekend, the best time is in most regions," said a German weather service meteorologist (DWD) in Offenbach on Thursday. High Ulla brings much sun and just harmless cumulative clouds. At the beginning of the week, hot air from Sahara causes an extraordinary heat wave.

On Friday, the sun and the clouds alternate in the middle and north of Germany, otherwise it is mostly clear. Between the Schwarzwalde and the Alps, as well as the eastern lowlands, rains and thunderstorms with heavy rainfall are possible. In the North Sea and in the mountains the temperature rises to a maximum of 21 degrees. In other parts of the country it can be up to 27 degrees.

On Saturday, the temperature rises again to a maximum of 27 degrees. While in the north mostly remains dry, and in the middle of Germany, in the south are formed cumulus. There may be showers and thunder storms, it is possible to have local heavy weather with heavy rain for several hours. On Sunday the sun shines in many places and usually remains dry. The thermometer shows a maximum of 29 degrees, near the Rhine also 31 degrees. Single storms can only appear in the southern mountains.

From Monday, the thermometer would have to dump the 30-degree mark regularly, DWD says. By mid-week in the southwestern half of Germany, values ​​up to 38 degrees are achieved. The cause of the meteorolosis is hot Saharaluft along with the powerful June sun.

On Wednesday, heavy weather conditions caused damage to some parts of the country and caused traffic disruption. In some areas, especially in Lower Saxony and Hessen, it dropped to 40 liters of rain per square meter per hour. Storm rushes were measured at about 100 kilometers per hour.

"In the bad weather there were local plagues and storms," ​​said Robert Hausen, a meteorologist at the early morning of Thursday. In the area of ​​Kassel were burial basements, the trees were depleted and the streets were covered with mud. In southern Hesse, a number of cars and branches have been destroyed.
