The weekend will bring temperatures up to 28 degrees, especially in the west. In the east and south, heavy rain must continue to be expected.
In the west, high-pressure influence with sunny weather will prevail from today, Friday. The low center in high layers will shift further eastward. Thus, it will remain very unsettled in the rest of Austria with an alternation of sun and clouds and an increasing shower and thunderstorm activity during the day.
Friday, further local heavy rain
The focus of showers before the start of the weekend will be in the east and southeast, where local heavy rain is likely. Winds will be mostly light from the northwest to northeast, with early temperatures between eight and 16 degrees; there will be 22 to 28 degrees during the day, with the highest values in the west.
Showers and thunderstorms in the east on Saturday
Saturday will start with some remaining clouds, especially in the north and east. However, it will be generally quite sunny in the west and south at first. During the day, spring clouds will form throughout the country. While they will remain mostly flat and harmless in the west, some showers and thunderstorms will develop, especially in the east and south. Locally, heavy rain is to be expected again. The wind will be mainly light to moderate from northwest to east, blowing too early values of ten to 17 degrees; the daily highs will reach 23 to 28 degrees, with the highest temperatures again in the west.
Sunday rain showers are mostly rare.
On Sunday, the Eastern Alpine region will again enter a northeasterly flow on the edge of a high-pressure system centred over the Baltic States. Thus, spring clouds with subsequent rain showers will form again, especially in the mountains. During the first half of the day, isolated showers are also expected in the north and northeast. Rain showers will remain rare everywhere with, at most variable cluster clouds. A brisk wind will blow from north to east on the northern side of the Alps and the eastern edge of the Alps. Eleven to 17 degrees are expected in the morning hours, then rising again to 23 to 28 degrees, with the highest values in Vorarlberg.
Widespread sunshine on Monday in Austria
On Monday, the prominent northeasterly flow will persist near the ground; in high layers, a low center will approach from the northeast to Slovakia. This will have little effect on the weather in Austria for now. Thus, the sun will shine widely during the day. Also, spring clouds over the mountains in the afternoon will bring hardly any rain showers. In the east and on the northern edge of the Alps, again brisk wind from east to north too early temperatures of eleven to 17 degrees and highs of 22 to 29 degrees, with the highest temperatures in the west.
Tuesday, a low center provides rain showers.
On Tuesday, a low center will lie in high layers over Austria. This is already from the first half of the day in the east of Austria with dense cloud cover and partly heavy rain showers weather effective. There will also be a noticeable cooling here compared to the previous days. The west, however, expects more sun and summer temperatures again. Weak windy, only in the west blowing brisk northeast wind. After eight to 15 degrees, 27 to 17 degrees are expected from west to east.
