Offenbach (dpa/lhe) - The weather is not doing Hessian day trippers any favors on Pentecost Sunday: The German Weather Service (DWD) is announcing strong thunderstorms with heavy rain from the south-west, leading to a local risk of severe weather. Stormy gusts and gusts of wind must also be expected, according to the weather experts. Hailstones with a size of around two centimeters are therefore also possible. The maximum values are between 23 and 26 degrees on Whitsunday, on the mountains around 20 degrees. During the night of Monday, showers and thunderstorms will move north-east - the temperatures will drop to 15 to 11 degrees.
According to the DWD, it will be a little quieter on Whit Monday: Sun and clouds alternate, but there will be isolated showers again in the afternoon. The temperatures climb to 22 to 26 degrees, in the mountains around 19 degrees. A weak to moderate south-west wind will also blow. The new week after Pentecost started largely unchanged with lots of clouds, showers and isolated thunderstorms.
