June 2011 was too warm and, above all, very changeable - as well as being the sixth month in succession which was too warm for the time of year. The really enjoyable summer weather was confined to the first and last ten days of the month. A brief but scorching heat wave beginning on 27 June brought the highest temperatures yet recorded in Germany this year. For much of the rest of the month the weather was unsettled, and somewhat cooler at times, with occasional bouts of extreme local weather, including thunderstorms, heavy rain, hail and violent gusts as the initial analysis by the Deutscher Wetterdienst (DWD) of data from its around 2,000 weather stations shows.>> More
