I am writing a book about my father, who was a Holocaust survivor. Does anyone know how I can find out what the weather was like in Bavaria, Germany (specifically, Weiden), on November 9-10, 1938 — kristallnacht?

@Philsheim points out the very useful weather data discussed in 1945 (spring) daily weather Germany

Sadly, it looks like data for Weiden in that set only goes back to 1947, as do most nearby weather records. The closest seems to be Gößweinstein (site 1689); it's at 49.8N, 11.3E compared to Weiden's 49.7N, 12.18E. So same latitude, but almost a full degree west - at a guess, it's about fifty miles away? A little further east is Nürnberg-Buchenbuehl (site 3666). It's quite possible the weather will be different from that at Weiden, but it's worth having a look.
