Central European weather is still in summer lethargy! Under weak high pressure, moderately humid, warm air will continue to move into our region. A typical summer day is therefore awaiting us with plenty of sunshine during the day, increasing cloud in the afternoon and thunderstorms in the later afternoon and evening.
On Saturday and on Sunday, the air pressure will fall. Low pressure will rise again over Central Europe, which will result in a sultry mix of sunshine, clouds and thunderstorms. The weather on Monday will be dry and hot.
