According to the DWD, values ​​of around 35 degrees were measured in a wide strip from the southwest to eastern Saxony. It remained below the 30-degree mark, especially in the North and Baltic Seas, in higher altitudes and in south-eastern Bavaria.

At noon, for example, Pforzheim in Baden-Württemberg recorded a higher temperature than Palma de Mallorca. The dreaded record values ​​of more than 38 degrees have not been fulfilled. According to DWD expert Tobias Reinartz, it was considered that it was not so extreme on Saturday that the hot air also brought Saharan dust to Germany, which somewhat shaded the sun’s rays.

The weather attracted many on the coast of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania. The railroad reported full trains to the Baltic Sea. The nine-euro ticket is popular and regional trains in tourist regions are especially busy, the spokesman said. The land on the Baltic Sea is ideal for people sensitive to heat: In Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania, it is very tolerable 22 to 25 degrees, according to meteorologist Stefan Kreibohm from the Hiddensee meteorological studio.

Also in Brandenburg, the DWD expected maximum values ​​between 33 and 36 degrees in Berlin and in the south of the country in Berlin. On Sunday nights, severe thunderstorms may occur in some places. The risk of forest fires due to persistent drought is great.

With regard to the expected temperatures, the meteorological service issued an official heat warning for Berlin and parts of Brandenburg. In addition, experts have pointed out in many places the unusually high level of UV radiation and the need for appropriate protective measures.

Additional burdens are to be expected due to reduced night cooling, especially in densely populated urban areas, according to heat warnings for Berlin and Potsdam, for example. Before the Midsummer weekend, experts also warned of the dangers of swimming in unguarded waters and warned of a particularly high risk of forest fires. In Frohnsdorf near Treuenbrietzen in the district of Potsdam-Mittelmark, firefighters, police, the armed forces and technical assistance organizations intervened on a large fire on Friday.
