We have those same wind patterns here in Western Canada, we call them Chinooks. We had one just a few days ago- the weather went from -35° C to 4° C. Now we’re back in the deep freeze, but it was a welcome break

Hi there. I think you were referring to this post http://willkommen-in-germany.tumblr.com/search/foehn and Canadian weather is really impressive. Northern Germany is around the Canadian Souths‘ longitude, but weather patterns here are different, in part due to the Gulf Stream and the North Atlantic Drift. I think I might die at -35 Celsius — more of a warm weather person and so not into snow! I mean, it looks pretty and all and frozen lakes are fun, and icicles are pretty… but after about a week of it, I‘d rather sit under palm trees on a beach, sipping ice cold drinks. 🙂 We have a lot of rain and (depending on location) more or less ice and snow in Germany in winter but unless you‘re in the highest mountains, temps rarely go below – 10 C or – 12 C, and for most of the country probably linger more around – 5 to + 10 for the winter on average. When I was a kid there was more snow, too.

Eigentlich meinte ich bei der Wetter ask was ganz anderes. Ich wollte darauf anspielen, dass die USA ja das Wetter in Fahrenheit misst und anzeigt bei Wettervorhersagen. 😅

Oh ja, in F wäre das noch extra gruselig, lol. Die Ironie dabei ist ja, dass der Herr Fahrenheit eigentlich ein Holländer war, der in Danzig in damals-Pommern geboren wurde… aber dass ausser den Amis sonst nur noch so Länder wie Palau, Mikronesien, Bahamas, usw. überhaupt in Fahrenheit messen. So ungefähr alle anderen benutzen seit gut 200 Jahren schon Celsius. 😄Zum Wetter selbst ist Deutschland halt nicht gerade tropisch, aber relativ gesehen geht es ja noch mit den Temperaturen. Weniger Regen wäre vielleicht gut, aber dann wäre es auch nicht grün, und grün ist schön.

Germany’s climate is moderate and has generally no longer periods of extremely hot or extremely cold weather. Northwestern and coastal Germany have a maritime climate characterized by warm summers and mild cloudy winters. Most areas on the North Sea coast have midwinter temps above freezing. Farther inland, the climate is continental, marked by greater seasonal variations with warmer summers and colder winters. Temperature extremes between night/day and summer/winter are considerably less in the north than in the south. During January, the coldest month, the average temp is about 1.5°C in the north and -2°C in the south. In July, the warmest month, it’s usually cooler in the north than in the south. The northern coastal region has July temps between 16°C and 18°C, but it can be 30C. At some locations in the south, the average is 20°C or higher, and it can be 35C.

The Alpine regions in the south and some areas of the Central German Uplands have mountain climate, characterized by lower temperatures due to high altitudes and greater precipitation caused by air becoming moisture-laden as it lifts over higher terrain. An occasional condition in the Alps is called “Föhn”, in which warm subtropical air is drawn across the Alps and loses moisture on the southern slopes. These winds can be as strong as gales, especially in late autumn and winter. In fall and winter strong Atlantic low-pressure systems from the west can bring gales and wet weather with showers, thunderstorms, and heavy rain, especially in the coastal parts and mountainous regions; in summer, weaker low pressure systems can sometimes cause showers and thunderstorms. Winters are generally mild, but can be harsh with heavy snowfall and temperatures below zero in the east, south, and mountainous regions.

Recommended clothing:
Lightweights with some rainwear for spring and summer, just in case. Waterproof medium to heavy for winter. It’s good to keep a sweater around any time of year, especially in the evenings.

Koeppen-Geiger classification:
The climate of Germany is classified as Cfb Climate; a warm temperate to humid climate with the warmest month lower than 22°C on average and 4 or more months above 10°C on average.
