Weather Experience: Good StarStarStarStar

I was there for a long weekend around mid-April where the weather was forecast to be light with some sunshine in between, and with a decent temperature of around 15°C, but ended up with bright sunshine most of the trip and good temperatures with an average of around 25°C during the day. There were relatively few clouds, only for about half an hour on one of the days when there were some clouds, but which disappeared quickly again, and did not make much difference to the weather. There was some rain at the end of the trip, with a small rain shower the evening before departure day and a relatively gray departure day, but still with quite decent temperature.— This text has been automatically translated into English
