Summer is now finally coming to Germany at full speed and we have to be prepared for a Heatwave prepare ourselves. Are you already one of the children who have vacations now? Then you can be happy and start thinking about where and how you want to cool down.
Temperatures Up To 40 Degrees Are Possible
Summer is finally coming to Germany. Very quickly the temperatures climb to over 30 degrees and in the coming days even higher. From France, the heatwave spreads slowly also to us to Germany and the High “Annelie” provides a lot of suns and cloudless skies. With each day this week, the temperatures then continue to rise and today, Wednesday, it will be up to 35 degrees hot. On Friday, it will then go even higher, and especially in the western and southwestern states such as Baden-Württemberg or even North Rhine-Westphalia the Thermometer rise up to 40 degrees. It is expected that there will be some new heat records.
Tropical Nights In Western Germany
Especially in the western parts of Germany, there will most likely also be tropical nights. One speaks of a tropical night when it does not get colder than 20 degrees at night. Some people are looking forward to it because then you can sit outside for quite a long time, for others, it is not so nice because you can’t sleep so well on these warm nights. However, as much as you look forward to the sun and the hot temperatures and you then prefer to be at a lake or in the outdoor pool, this weather can also be dangerous. You also have to pay attention to some things. In the midday heat you should not be in the sun for so long and at this time you should exert as little as possible. This means that you should not necessarily play soccer outside with your friends at this time. It is also important to drink a lot in this heat. For those who are already on summer vacation, it is best to cool off in the lake or swimming pool and find a nice place in the shade.
Explanation Of The Difficult Words:
Heatwave is the term used to describe an unusually long period of hot days in direct succession.
One High is always spoken of when the weather is concerned. There is a “low”, which usually brings bad weather, and the “high”. With the “high” the air masses sink downward. This increases the air pressure and ensures that the sky is mostly clear and the sun shines.
A Thermometer thermometer is a measuring device for determining the temperature. From the thermometer, you can read how many degrees it is.
