Weather in NRW: Weather at the weekend brings permafrost and snow

Everywhere in North Rhine-Westphalia, people can prepare for snowfall at the weekend – at least temporarily. A meteorologist from the German Weather Service (DWD) in Essen predicted that it would come in from the west from early Saturday evening. While the temperatures in large parts of the country were initially just above zero with heavy cloud cover, there were freezing temperatures, permafrost and snow in many places from the evening onwards.

As a result, the snowfall will shift to the east until Sunday morning. The night will still be partly dry there and snow will fall during the day, according to the DWD expert. He expected two to five centimeters of fresh snow for NRW. Five to ten centimeters are possible in the mountains.

On Sunday morning, the snow in the west should then turn into rain, which can partially freeze. In the east, the whole thing will not start until late afternoon. But the DWD does not expect extreme slipperiness: “People will not skate on the street, it will not be that bad,” said the meteorologist.

In the west it will be much milder late on Sunday afternoon – with rather rare rainfall. It should continue to be similarly changeable at the beginning of the week – at milder temperatures of a maximum of three to six degrees. (dpa / red)
