Leipzig (dpa/sn) - Even in the second week of January there is no winter in sight in Saxony. It remains far too mild for the time of year, said a spokesman for the German Weather Service (DWD) on Sunday. The influence of low pressure ensures that it will be comparatively warm, rainy and windy in the next few days.
On Monday, the DWD expects highs of nine degrees Celsius, on Tuesday it could be plus eight degrees and on Wednesday plus eleven degrees. In addition, there is a heavily clouded sky - so it will be mostly gray.
The prospects are no better for the Saxon winter sports areas, which have been suffering from a lack of snow since Christmas and the turn of the year. According to the DWD, there could be snowfall in the uppermost regions at most on Tuesday and Wednesday nights. During the day, however, the temperatures rose above zero again, so that the white splendor did not last.
