Munich (dpa / lby) – A golden October, sunny and cool, but with large temperature differences – this is the weather report of the German Weather Service (DWD) for the Free State. In Bavaria, both the highest and the lowest temperatures nationwide were measured this month, the meteorologists announced on Friday. On October 3rd, Munich reported a maximum of 27.5 degrees, while the temperature in Oberstdorf in the Allgäu Alps fell to minus 4.9 degrees at night three weeks later.
Overall, October in Bavaria was therefore unusually dry and sunny. On average 35 liters of precipitation per square meter, only slightly more than half of the average from 1961 to 1990 (61 liters per square meter). With a good 145 hours of sunshine – 27 hours more than the long-term average – the Free State was one of the sunniest regions in Germany. With an average temperature of 8.2 degrees, Bavaria was also the coolest federal state.
