Berlin, August 13, 2013: Cold Front From North West

August 2013 proved again to be a month for more interesting weather. Showers and short thunderstorms passed Berlin in the late afternoon on August 13. From the high-rise at Potsdamer Platz the cold front could be seen arriving from the North-West. Wind picked up and thunder could be heard. It was raining for some minutes and visitors and tourists could see a huge rainbow over Berlin as the front moved forward to the East. Temperatures dropped below 20 C and later the sky was crisp and clear.
