How will the weather be on the weekend of the federal election?

The forecasts of a meteorologist give reason to hope.

Meanwhile, a phenomenon should reach Germany on Saturday.

Berlin - According to a forecast, the weather can be really enjoyed again at the weekend.

The Indian summer should show itself from its most beautiful side.

But meteorologist Dominik Jung does not only expect sunshine, as he

said

on

wetter.net

.

According to his prediction, a huge sulfur cloud will move straight to Germany.

How dangerous is the phenomenon?

Weather in Germany on Friday: "Mix of sun and clouds"

The expert described the weather on Friday (September 24th) as a “mix of sun and clouds”.

So he expects mostly pleasant temperatures for all of Germany.

The wind in the north should also stop more and more, says Jung.

The day before, the German Weather Service (DWD) issued an urgent warning of storms in the north.

The low that was responsible for this has now been withdrawn, says Jung.

It could come to maximum temperatures of up to 25 degrees.

A cloud of sulfur directly over Germany on the day of the federal election

Meanwhile, a cloud of sulfur moves from La Palma in the direction of Germany.

The background is the eruption of the volcano on the island.

This emits "8,000 to 11,000 tons of sulfur dioxide into the atmosphere every day", says the qualified meteorologist Jung.

According to him, a south-westerly current is responsible for the fact that the cloud moves over Spain and the western Mediterranean to Germany.

On Saturday evening "the sulfur cloud will then reach us in western Germany".

"Then the sulfur dioxide pollution over our heads is particularly high," said the weather expert.

On the evening of the Bundestag election, the sulfur

cloud

hangs “in the middle of us”, according to the prognosis at

wetter.net

.

"Toxic gas" over Germany - what danger does the sulfur cloud pose?

However, one should not panic because of this.

"Yes, sulfur dioxide is poisonous - a poisonous gas," explained Dominik Jung.

However, at a distance of around five kilometers, it is "very high up in the atmosphere".

The sulfur cloud is not a health hazard, he said.

Air traffic is also not at risk.

However, the meteorologist admitted: "Nevertheless: this sulfur can be washed out of the atmosphere with a few showers and then reaches us with the rain." That is not dangerous for people either, "but it is for the trees," explained he.

“The tree population doesn't like this so-called 'acid rain' at all,” he summed up.

The sulfur cloud, on the other hand, cannot harm Indian summer.

The expert forecast summer temperatures for the entire weekend.

It should then continue so pleasantly into the new week.

According to the graduate meteorologist Jung, the temperatures remain high.

“You have the slightest feeling that September summer doesn't want to leave us anymore,” he said.

Towards the end of October, however, it should be really uncomfortable.

A prognosis shows an enormous drop in temperature.
