At the moment, our weather can be described in clichés. We will once again experience a perfect autumn day which could not be more typical:
A fresh morning with fog along the rivers, colourful forests shining in the sunlight during the day and an early dusk.
Until Sunday, we will only see little change. Monday will once again be sunny with just a few clouds moving in towards evening. These clouds are the first harbinger of a weather front which will pass over our region on Tuesday with thicker clouds and showers.
