Extreme weather change: expert announces temperature drop and frost
It is the warmest September since weather records began in 1881, and it even beats a few summer months in terms of temperatures. So far this month, summer day after summer day has followed. But that's over for the time being. "Now we are facing a big, or at least felt big, drop in temperature," warns wetter.net expert Jung. Cold air masses push the heat away, "so there will be a few cooler days for the time being".
The DWD also warns of heavy rain and thunderstorms over northern Hesse. The forecasts of the German Weather Service point to rainfall between 15 and 25 liters per hour, in some places even up to 45 liters of rain are possible within six hours, according to a meteorologist of the DWD.

Frost alert: It's getting cold – but then there's the next summer comeback with temperatures of up to 30 degrees
With the passage of the cold front from west to east, showers, rain and isolated thunderstorms are to be expected. Temperatures will drop. It will then remain cooler until Sunday. But then the ex-hurricane "Nigel" gets involved in the "weather kitchen" again, according to Jung. It pushes warm air masses all the way to us in Germany – and the summer joys continue: "Summer seems to want to make one comeback after another this year," Jung notes. As early as next week, highs of up to 30 degrees are possible again.
