Offenbach, 30 November 2020 – In the autumn of 2020, many high-pressure areas often brought mild or moderately warm air to Germany. Only in October, the weather was changeable. Due to low-pressure areas, the weather was dominated by little sunshine, abundant precipitation and alternating mild and cool temperatures. It was not till the end of November that temperatures around zero and widespread night frosts signalled the beginning of winter. Overall, the autumn of 2020 was the fourth-warmest in Germany since 1881 with an average temperature of 10.3 degrees Celsius (°C), after 2006 (12.0 °C), 2012 (11.1 °C) and 1982 (10.4 °C). At the same time, the season was too dry and fairly sunny. This has been announced by the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) after an initial analysis of the observations from its approximately 2000 measuring stations.
