Can you see the weather in Germany in summer?
Weather expert gives a "low pressure swamp" forecast for August - and that during the holiday season.
Munich - The summer goes into the last round.
The last meteorological summer month starts on August 1st.
That sounds promising.
But currently the weather in Germany doesn't look very summery.
And the prognoses hardly give hope for anything good.
Vacationers have to be brave.
Low "Ferdinand" over southern Scandinavia and low "Guido" over Austria determine the weather on Sunday (August 1, 2021).
Then the next cold front is already on its way from the low "Elior".
It doesn't look like bathing weather in early to mid-August.
“We stay in this low pressure swamp most of the time,” sums up meteorologist Corinna Borau from
the weather situation.
"We have changeable weather, sometimes heavy downpours and also thunderstorms."
Weather in Germany: "Summer is going to a diving station"
Humid warm air from the Mediterranean is tapped, explains the weather expert.
In addition, there is cool, moist air from the North Sea to Germany.
In her opinion, stable high pressure weather is not in sight.
“This could slowly tip over in the middle or end of August.
Then an offshoot of the Azores high could also spread to us. ”It could then also bring hot air to us on the Mediterranean.
However, the lows over Northern Europe would not be far.
"Cold start in August!
The first 10 to 14 days in August will be so bad! ”Headlines meteorologist Dominik Jung from wetter.net in a weather video for his first August forecast.
“The summer is going to dive station” and in his opinion nothing will change until the middle of the month.
There is no summer warmth and no constant sunshine in sight.
Quite the opposite: heavy showers and thunderstorms with further storms were on the horizon.
Much rain is in sight.
“The stormy summer apparently continues into the third meteorological summer month of August.
Terrible weather prospects for all those who spend their vacation at home in Germany. ”Especially in the south, up to 160 liters per square meter can fall in the first week of August.
When does summer 2021 begin and end?
According to the meteorological definition, the summer months are June, July and August.
This has practical reasons to better evaluate and compare data for statistics.
According to the meteorological calendar, summer therefore begins on June 1st and ends on August 31st.
Weather in Germany: Will summer start again at the end of August?
Will there be summer weather from mid-August? "We have to wait and see," says weather expert Dominik Jung. According to meteorologist Corinna Bureau, the weather models are still at odds. The European weather model shows a slight plus for August. According to the US model, on the other hand, it looks rather too cold for August in large parts of Europe and also in Germany. Maybe then the offshoot of an Azores high will make it to us.
