The longest snowy period in the last 30 years could end next week, meteorologists from the German Weather Service (DWD) reported over the weekend.
Even as meteorologists predicted continued winter weather for the next eight days across the country, they said that weather trends point to milder weather to follow.
Germany is in the midst of the longest snowy period since the winter of 1978/79. The snowy crust has remained on the ground without melting for some five weeks.
While residents can look forward to warmer weather to come, they’ll still have to dress warmly this week, the DWD said.
