Official heat warning : Up to 34 degrees expected in Bonn and the region

According to the calendar, summer is slowly but surely coming to a close, but residents of Bonn will continue to experience sweltering temperatures for the time being. The German Weather Service has issued a heat warning.

With a high over the Atlantic keeping all low pressure areas and troughs away, it will remain humid and warm to hot until midweek, with rain, sometimes heavy. The German Weather Service (DWD) has issued an official heat warning for Bonn and the region, which currently lasts until 7pm on Tuesday.

The temperatures will reach a maximum of 28 to 34 degrees Celsius. From Tuesday lunchtime there will be isolated thunderstorms in NRW with heavy rain, gusty winds and hail expected, but otherwise it will remain sunny or partly cloudy according to the DWD forecast.

“A North Sea low pressure trough will ‘bring a bit of variety to the weather menu’ at the end of Wednesday night,” says DWD expert Sebastian Schappert. “This trough will not only bring heavier cloud from the west but there could be more frequent showers and thunderstorms.”

In the northern half and in central and eastern low mountain areas, isolated showers and thunder are possible. The DWD is expecting maximum temperatures of 27 to 33 degrees. On Wednesday it should be similarly warm with highs of 26 to 33 degrees. Rain is also forecast again: on the coast to the Ore mountains there could be heavy showers and thunderstorms.
