Meteorologists say it's getting colder in NRW every day. Roads can get slippery on weekends. But tobogganing will probably only be possible in the mountains.
Winterberg (dpa / lnw) - On the third weekend in Advent it should be crispy cold in North Rhine-Westphalia. The temperatures are increasingly rarely above freezing, as a meteorologist from the German Weather Service said. "It's getting a little colder by the day and tending more and more towards permafrost." Motorists should drive carefully because of possible slippery terrain. There could also be snow in places - but not much: "One to two centimeters are the highest of feelings."
However, skiers and tobogganists will still find very good conditions in the Sauerland. According to a spokeswoman, the temperatures are ideal for artificial snow production. Five to seven lifts should be running this weekend. But it will probably not be enough for the cross-country ski runs. The snowboard world cup will be held in Winterberg on Saturday and Sunday.
