Weather in NRW: Will Easter fall through?  Expert with a clear prognosis

The weather in North Rhine-Westphalia has kept us quite busy this winter. It didn’t want to get really cold, hopes of a few snowy days were raised and then dashed by various weather forecasts. The German Weather Service (DWD) declared this year’s winter to be “exceptionally mild”. There was even record rainfall in northern Germany.

Will this trend continue? An expert gives an outlook on the Easter weather in North Rhine-Westphalia.

In recent decades, Easter has had everything weather-wise. While some older people in particular can still remember an Easter egg hunt in the snow, there were also holidays when people sat in the sun in shorts. And what about this year?

In addition to all the rain, Easter is also earlier than usual this year. For comparison: Last year, Easter fell a whole week later on April 9th, and in 2022 it was only April 17th. So do Germans have to give up their favorite dish?
