Weather in NRW: But no spring? Experts fear “March winter”
Apparently the winter doesn’t want to give up yet. At night it remains cold to freezing with single-digit temperatures, but during the day it gets really warm with sometimes over 15 degrees. But that could change again now. There is now a winter forecast for NRW.
“March winter” is what the experts at “WetterOnline” call it. We have just experienced the hot phase at the end of February and beginning of March, but now winter is supposed to be back. That’s the norm for the month. And snowfall is not uncommon.

“The March winter is a common weather situation in Central Europe,” says press spokesman and meteorologist Björn Goldhausen. “This year he shows himself more from his tame side. Despite the cold nights, it is easy to bear the sunshine during the day. But it shouldn’t be that bad. “Sustainable March winter weather with snow down to the valleys is not in sight,” said the expert.
Temperatures for the next few days:
- Saturday: 13 to 15 degrees during the day (seven at high altitudes), eight to three degrees at night (minus two)
- Sunday: 14 to 17 degrees (eight) during the day, seven to four degrees (two) at night
