Summer is proving to be more extreme than ever, with heat and drought everywhere you look. Soon, however, it will be very wet and uncomfortable.
The weather has gone wild in the last few weeks: Persistent precipitation, including a fair amount of snow at higher elevations, has been followed by unusually high temperatures. We have been under the spell of summer for a while now.
Like Monday’s weather, Tuesday will be similar: humid with highs around 35 degrees. But then it could get humid for the first time and not so friendly: Meteorologists do not rule out thundery showers.
On Wednesday, temperatures will reach 32 degrees. But it will also be wet from the sky. Starting at noon, heavy showers and thunderstorms are more likely.
Thursday will be mainly dry, with a high of 33 degrees. Rain may fall, but only in the Alps.
Friday will see similar high temperatures and sunshine for a few hours. Then a front will move in. Heavy rain showers and thunderstorms are expected.
This is truly a summer of extremes. Not long ago, winter sent its greetings: The Dachstein Glacier on the border of Upper Austria and Styria showed an unexpectedly snowy side.
The snow shovel alone was not enough, according to the tongue-in-cheek post on the official Facebook page. “The snow blower has to come out too. Over 20cm of new snow fell tonight.”
