Offenbach (dpa) - In large parts of Germany, the week starts with sunshine.
According to the German Weather Service (DWD), fog fields initially persist in some regions.
But as soon as these have dissolved, there is a lot of sunshine at the beginning of the meteorological spring.
High «Jacqueline» ensures that it will remain largely free of rain in the coming days.
However, frost must still be expected between the Alps and the North Sea at night.
According to the DWD, temperatures rise during the day and often reach double-digit values.
"The highest temperatures should then be measured on Wednesday, 16 to 17 degrees are possible locally on the Upper Rhine," write the experts from Offenbach.
However, from Thursday onwards, people should expect a cooling off.
A low over Russia ensures that a cold front flows into Germany from the north.
This clears the way for significantly colder air, and a temperature drop of 5 to 10 degrees is to be expected, according to the meteorologists.
This would mean that only single-digit maximum temperatures would be reached during the day.
However, there is permafrost only in the mountains, as the DWD also announced.
With the cold front, there is precipitation that could bring a few centimeters of snow in the mountainous region.
In the lowlands there is usually not enough for that.
There could be no question of a real onset of winter.
