Update from April 25th at Cold front time to the weekend leads to cooler temperatures in Germany, but the German weather service (DWD) report does not show the much needed heavy rain. "It will be damp, but the expected volume from five to ten liters per square meter is not enough to compensate for drought," said DWD meteorologist Jacqueline Kernn on Thursday in Offenbach. This is not an expected long-term improvement, according to previous forecasting models, not for the next week. This may also be the case for forest fire risks.

Time in Germany: Changing the weather causes health problems
Changing the weather does not mean a pleasant time, especially for people who are sensitive to the weather. With them, rapid changes are often caused by health problems such as headache, migraine, dizziness or sleep disorders. Rheumatism or high blood pressure may also deteriorate. Experts recommend changing showers and regular physical activity.
But is the deterioration of the health condition really associated with the weather? Human biometeorologist professor dr. Andreas Matzarakis explains wetter.com: "Basically, weather is not the cause of the symptoms." It only reinforces existing complaints. People who suffer from sleep deprivation or stress are particularly affected more often. Even people with high blood pressure often have cold front complaints.

Serious warning about weather in Germany: blood is falling in some parts
Update from April 24: After the beautiful Easter weather, the German Time Service (DWD) now warns of the heavy thunderstorms that come to Germany, and sometimes the rain. Some parts even threaten threats that are very rare: blood rain. This happens when the wind transports Red Sahara to Central Europe. Then the sky looks misty and yellowish. Fine sand grains settle with the rain, so the raindrops look reddish, like blood.
But not everywhere is a strange time view. Particularly in the middle of Germany, blood rains can be affected, and there is also the possibility of red blood drops in Rhineland.
DWD posted a satellite image because a nasty thunderstorm from France to Germany zurast – threatens to storm around 90 km / h.

Bad weather threatens us – and meteorologists warn even before this summer
Update from April 24: Today, Germany is not only threatening the weather. According to the information provided by the German time service (DWD), we are also moving towards another summer of drought. "If dry weather continues in the coming months, the 2018 drought could be repeated or even exceeded," says DWD Agricultural Meteorologist Udo Busch in Offenbach. At the beginning of the growing season, soils in many regions are much drier than the long-term average and even drier than in April last year. It also requires planers: Because of the great danger of forest fires in Germany, the German Fire Federation (DFV) has demanded greater fire helicopters.
At that time, plants and trees with long roots could still draw moisture from deep soil layers and so well over drought. However, this year the water tanks are much less filled. That is why not only agriculture was affected by drought in the summer, but this time forestry, too, calculates DWD. Eastern countries, especially Saxony-Anhalt and Thuringia, are particularly affected.
Weather from April 22: In Germany, the weather ruined us for Easter. Lots of sun and temperatures up to 25 degrees. However, mini-summer will soon be history. Because after April 22 – that is, from Tuesday – or by April 25 at the latest, the temperature is likely to decrease significantly.
Time in Germany: Is there a threat to the weather?
Weather forecast, called "singularity" by weather experts. The term sounds great. But even in the forties, these weather conditions were German meteorologists and climatologists Hermann Flohn described.
Bonn Climatologist, who died in 1997, according to faz.net stated that the weather is relatively strict as an event occurring on that day for at least two of the three years.
Time in Germany: what does April mean?
The weather in Germany seems to follow a typical pattern regularly. For example, Herrmann Fohn spotted cold waves in the spring, despite general warming, as can be read in the essay from 1949. According to this, cold recurrences accumulate on certain dates, if predetermined weather conditions prevail, such as mostly dry and sunny weather.
An important change of weather after this "peculiarity" this year should take place from April 25 (Thursday). Will appear if this forecast really arrives.
