While thunderstorms and rain are still possible at the beginning of the weekend, the summer heat will arrive in Austria from Sunday.
The core of the low-pressure system, which continues to determine the weather, lies over the west of Poland on Friday. According to UWZ expert Christoph Matella, unstable air masses will once again reach the Alpine region in a northwesterly high-altitude current, and showers and a few thunderstorms are to be expected. However, the risk of thunderstorms remains low. On Saturday, too, there will be little change, with a slightly increased tendency towards showers and thunderstorms. From the west, however, the influence of high pressure will gradually increase, and hot and humid air masses will reach the Alpine region. Thus, the first hot day of the year is in sight from Sunday.
On Friday, clouds will predominate from the Arlberg to the Dachstein, with some showers already at the beginning. Away from the northern Alps, the day will be friendly and often sunny with only harmless clouds. In the afternoon, clouds will increase in the mountains and on the north side of the Alps, and thundery showers will fall in places. Often sunny and dry in the eastern lowlands and the northern föhn valleys. The wind will be moderate, in the east brisk from the northwest, and temperatures will reach 19 to 26 degrees.
Saturday will start along the Northern Alps from the Außerfern to Upper Styria with some clouds and scattered showers, otherwise sunny spells. During the day, a mix of sun and clouds will develop, especially in the east and south, with some showers and thunderstorms. It will remain predominantly dry from Vorarlberg to the Innviertel and southeast. The wind will blow moderately to briskly from the northwest, with highs between 20 and 28 degrees.
Sunday is mostly sunny in the inner Alps, with some remaining clouds or local fog. In the day, especially over the mountains, spring clouds will form, and in the afternoon, showers or regional thunderstorms cannot be completely ruled out in the Waldviertel. At the eastern edge of the Alps, the friendly weather character will mostly dominate. With moderate northwesterly winds, temperatures will reach 23 to 31 degrees, with the highest values in the west.
Monday will start with passing clouds on the northern side of the Alps; in the south and southeast, the sun will shine frequently. During the day, the weather will be mostly sunny, but local heat storms will start in the afternoon in the western mountains. The wind will be mostly light, and temperatures will continue to rise, with highs between 25 and 32 degrees.
