in 2019, the new 2018: A strong high pressure area gives Berlin Sunny weather, as far as the Forecasters can see. Something similar had started exactly twelve months of the drought year 2018. The crucial difference: While a year ago, with a brisk northeast wind had the waters under the bright blue sky freezing, blowing at present, only a weak, unusually gentle breeze. "On the weekend it goes in the direction of 15 degrees," says Friedrich Föst from the Weather factory. "This feels like spring, especially as the sun has power."
none of that will change until the end of the month little. Maybe it is a tiny bit cooler and occasionally cloudy, if the humid air is approaching. But, in principle, "that is a very stable weather situation," says Föst. Omega-position of the constellation in which the amount of flow to one of the two lows enclosed large flies called – for example in the Form of the Greek letters.
With this weather, who sang the joy of the birds to fall all the more: even before the first rays of the sun it is trolling in the morning in the branches. Derk Ehlert, nature expert at the environmental management, is familiar with the singer in detail: prior to the beginning of the twilight, the Robins leave their bell-clear vocals hear.
Enormous volume of the wrens
In the first light of day to be heard, the kings, the enormous volume of the fence. "What used to be called snow kings," says Ehlert, and makes it clear: "You will be happy the after saying like a snow king, but their singing is not a sign of joy, but of area defense." The first copies were already building so-called game of esters for advertising and pairing.
a Serious take on the blackbirds of the family planning: Since a week, the black singers are heard in the morning twilight to and part of the construction of "real" nests busy. Although the activity of the birds will be determined far more by day length than of temperature. But the heat increases the supply of food and increases the chances of Survival of the first Blackbird hatching, in the case of thawed soils easier with worms and insects supply as in the case of a late Frost.
"If all the others are awake, then also the sparrows," says Ehlert, the more score. While the chickadees leave since January, her Tütüt-tütüt through forests and Parks can be heard, singing thrushes, and chaffinches are only now on the way back from Western Europe. From the same direction the wild geese here, and Ehlert know of more than 20,000 cranes that had crossed on the last weekend of the Pyrenees.
in the Middle of the meteorological winter, the spring is unmistakable – and the weekend weather is quite likely to open the barbecue season – because of the night cold, more at noon than in the evening – or to secure a Sunny spot in the beer garden.
The short Winter not compensated for the lack of rain
for those Who prefer the private garden and in front of the beer still wants to work, gets Sven wakes up a man a To-do list: trees and shrubs plants, trees cut, hedges, pruning, compost, earth, win, turf, and lime – all of which offer with such mild winter weather, says the technical adviser to the national Association of small gardeners. Only frost sensitive plants such as roses, hydrangeas, buddleia and lavender to leave in peace. And also no vegetables to sow so that the plants are not killed by a late Frost. Early bloomers, in contrast, could be safely in the great outdoors or the balcony box.
If the early spring is the start of a new drought year, according to the meteorologists Föst is still completely uncertain. Sure is only that the short Winter not compensated for the enormous lack of rain by 2018 approach: Instead of 600 litres of 350 fell. Who plants, so pour also. Or in the beer garden.More about
