Too warm, too wet, too little snow: spring in numbers

Hanover – sometimes blue, sometimes gray, sometimes sun, then rain, fog, storm, frost …

WELCOME TO SPRING: It hasn’t been boring so far. But not normal either – but colorful!

In Hanover, the city has been providing 60 pots of pink flowering ornamental plants since Monday, at least in terms of color, for resistance to changing weather conditions, and 80,000 flowers also adorn parks and roadsides. Hundreds of people enjoyed the sun, flowers and scents at Maschsee or Herrenhausen meadows. Tomorrow clouds and rain again!

Spring has always been better! Less gross, isn’t it? BILD and graduate meteorologist Dominik Jung ( have compiled and compared the weather data for the past 10 years.

How has spring changed in Hanover and Lower Saxony?

One thing is certain: temperature fluctuations are not so extreme at any other time of the year: On the hottest spring day (April 29, 2018) the thermometer on the leash climbed to 32 degrees, on March 13, 2013 the temperatures dropped to – 12 degrees – a difference of 44 degrees!

Usually values ​​leveled off between 9 and 10 degrees. There was only one outlier, 2013. “An extremely cold spring,” says Jung (see graphic).

His forecast for this year: “Mixed and warmer than usual, changeable and stormy – especially in March. From April it will be drier, but neither an extreme warm nor a cold spring. “
