There was no snow chaos over the weekend – and there should be none for the coming days. However, the temperatures in Austria are and remain wintry. The weekly weather forecast of the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics in detail:
ZAMG forecast: It remains cold in Austria
Along the northern side of the Alps and in the north and east, sun and clouds will alternate on Monday. Isolated snow showers are possible here, mainly in the mountains, but mostly it is already dry. In the south, there will initially be a few fog patches in the basin areas, but the sun will often shine undisturbed there during the day. The wind will still blow moderately to briskly from the west, especially in the east. The early temperatures will be minus ten to minus two degrees in snow-covered valleys, even to minus 15 degrees; the daytime highs will be minus five to plus two degrees, warmest in the southeast.
Minus degrees on a sunny Tuesday
On Tuesday, dense cloud fields will soon move into the west. Everywhere else, however, most of the day will be very sunny, and local fog patches in the foothills of the Alps and the southern basins will gradually clear. Only in the afternoon, generally from the west and southwest, initially high, later dense cloud fields will move in. The wind will be mostly light from east to south. The thermometer will show minus 15 to minus five degrees in the morning, in some alpine valleys even below, during the day a maximum of minus six to plus one degree.
Warning of freezing rain on Wednesday
North of the main Alpine ridge and in the north and east, the sky will remain cloudy until evening on Wednesday, with a few exceptions. With a snow line between low altitudes in the far east and around 1,000 meters above sea level in the west, it will also rain and snow here at times. There may also be temporary local icy conditions due to freezing rain in the lowlands, especially in Upper and Lower Austria. The wind will blow moderately to briskly to the southeast to southwest at the northern edge of the Alps and in the Vienna Basin. In the course of the afternoon, the wind will eventually shift generally to the west. Early temperatures range between minus eight and minus one degrees. Daytime highs range from minus three to plus seven degrees, with the mildest temperatures in the Föhn valleys on the northern side of the Alps.
Foehn provides mild weather in the west on Thursday
In a westerly to southwesterly flow, numerous clouds will persist on Thursday, especially on and north of the main ridge, and locally it will snow or rain a little. The snow line will generally lie between low elevations in the far north and over 1000 meters towards the west. In the afternoon, it dries up more often, especially in the eastern half, a few sunny windows are likely to appear. South of the main ridge of the Alps, as well as in the southeast and partly in the west of Austria, the sun will still be visible at times before clouds, snow, and rain showers move in from the southwest in the afternoon and evening. The wind will blow weakly throughout. The thermometer shows minus six to plus two degrees in the morning and minus two to plus five degrees in the afternoon. It will be even milder with foehn effects in the west.
Snow and rain forecast for Friday
On Friday, a disturbance zone will cross the country from the northwest, and at the same time, an Italian low will form. On the northern edge of the Alps and north of it, there will be numerous clouds, regional snow, and rainfall from early morning. In the north, it will snow mainly all the way down; in the west and south, the snow line will still be around 700 to 1,000 meters in some places but will also drop steadily here. As the day progresses, precipitation will also advance further east and south. Especially in the southeast, there will be brief sunny spells.
