Newly arrived expats in Germany will find the climate to be somewhat inconsistent.

Weather in Germany changes frequently from day to day and even seasonal patterns vary from year to year. The northwest region of the country is generally the coldest, with temperatures increasing eastwards and southwards. On the whole, summers tend to be warm across Germany and winters bitterly cold. Extremes aren't common, but severe winters can sweep through the country every now and then.

Spring can be slow to take shape and Indian summers reaching into October can make an appearance every so often. Rainfall mostly occurs during the summer months. Expats who enjoy the drama of a thunderstorm will likely experience quite a few.

Newcomers to Germany will find that the best way to prepare for the weather is to make a habit of checking local stations daily, and even hourly, before leaving the house.
