Berlin Weather in July: a bit like April in Autumn

So far Berlin Summer has been a bit like the stock market: up and down. Yes, we had a couple of nice, sunny, warm days – but we definitely also had some cold, windy and quite rainy days. Even if it’s warm and sunny during the day, that doesn’t mean too much for the evening to come. Chances are that the next thunder storm is just around the corner.

But one nice side effect of this moody weather should be mentioned right in the second paragraph of this weather update: every now and then we have some stunning sunsets, all with dark  orange clouds and everything. And sometimes there are also some nice rainbows to spot. Nice!

So I don’t want to complain too much about this up and down, since that’s what weather is all about, isn’t it? And at least we did not have any severe floods like they sometimes can happen during the summer months. And this year there were actually already some serious flooding in the south / south west of Germany – but nothing the like in Berlin.

And – let’s face it – the rain, that keeps returning every couple of days, is actually good for the environment. So all the parks and and also the trees along the streets and alleys are all nicely green. So – I would say so far this summer has been a bit like April, concerning the rapid change of weather conditions – and Autumn, concerning the wind and the rain.

Update: the second half of July seems to be much more agreeable. Almost every day the temperatures are between 25°C (77°F) and 32°C (90°F) and the thunderstorms are only hitting Berlin maybe once a week – if any. People are enjoying themselves in Biergardens and on terraces, having dinner outside – summer has finally arrived. Yay!

Berlin Weather: Summer has finally arrived

After high temperatures on the weekend Berlin City experienced some massive thunderstorms last night. Today the city is a lot cooler. Sun ist shining, a slight wind is blowing, temperatures are between 24°C – 28°C on day time and around 16°C – 20°C during the night.

During the next couple of days it may get even colder again – temperatures are expected to drop below 20°C during day time on thursday 09. July, but towards the weekend temperatures will rise again well above 25°C. That’s at least what the Berlin weather report is promising.
