The German Weather Service (DWD) predicted 39 degrees for Sunday and spoke of a strong heat load. With plenty of sunshine, temperatures should reach 33 degrees on Saturday. At night, temperatures will drop to 17 to 13 degrees.

Forest fire hazard reaches highest level

According to the DWD, the danger of forest fires will increase again this weekend. On Sunday, the highest danger level will be reached almost everywhere in Brandenburg. In the past weeks there have been two major fires in the Lieberoser Heide and near the river Oder. Both areas are contaminated with ammunition, which made extinguishing the fires more difficult.

All bathing lakes are clean

Anyone looking to cool off from the heat in Berlin can go swimming in the waters of the city without hesitation. According to Lageso, all bathing areas are suitable for bathing. In June some of them were contaminated after thunderstorms.
