The weekend starts with more snowfall. But in three provinces, there is a yellow weather warning because of strong southern foehn.
On Saturday, an Italian low will again shovel milder air masses to Austria and end the early winter phase, forecasts by the UBIMET severe weather center. The country will remain in a foehn southerly flow over the weekend; warning level yellow has been issued for Salzburg, Tyrol, and Vorarlberg. The unsettled but relatively mild weather will remain with us until the beginning of the new week. In the recent week, an altitude low from France will move over Austria and bring further unsettled weather, with the temperatures gradually decreasing.
Saturday will be often cloudy, and in the extreme south, it will start to snow again in the afternoon and evening or rain at very low altitudes. A few drops will fall or drizzle in the southeast and the eastern lowlands; on the northern side of the Alps, it will remain predominantly dry. The sun will sometimes shine from the Rätikon to the Enns Valley and the Upper Mühlviertel. The wind will be moderate in the northeast, partly brisk from the southeast, north of the Alps, somewhat firm southerly foehn.
On Sunday, it will remain cold and wet in the south with primarily unproductive snow or sleet in the lowest valleys and basins; only in the Carnic Alps will it snow moderately at times down to the valleys. The day will be mostly dry with a few sunny intervals on the foehn northern side of the Alps. It will remain foggy and cloudy in the northeast, with occasional drizzle. In the north of the Alps, a partly strong southerly foehn will continue to blow, and a brisk southeasterly wind in the northeast.
From Vorarlberg to Upper Carinthia, showery precipitation will quickly set in on Monday, spreading northeastward over the entire country during the day. The snow line will be between 700 and 1200 m from north to south. The sun is most likely to appear in the eastern and southern mountainous areas in between. The initially still brisk and foehny southeasterly wind will die down during the day and be replaced by westerly winds.
