Saxony: Sunny and dry spring in Saxony

Offenbach/Dresden (dpa/sn) - The people of Saxony can look back on a sunny and dry spring. A total of 670 hours of sunshine were counted from February to May of this year, as the German Weather Service (DWD) announced on Monday. That was more than 200 hours of sunshine more than the average for the reference period from 1961 to 1990. The average temperatures were 8.4 degrees and thus 0.8 degrees above the reference value.

At the same time, it snowed and rained relatively little: At around 90 liters per square meter, the amount of precipitation was just under half of what was usual from 1961 to 1990, it said.

Nationwide, the DWD recorded the third sunniest spring since measurements began in 1951, with an average of 467 hours of sunshine. It was also clearly too dry for this time of year for the ninth time in a row.

According to the DWD, the average temperature across Germany was 9 degrees Celsius - 1.3 degrees more than in the comparable period from 1961 to 1990.
