The hot weather for this time of year will continue until Tuesday. On Wednesday, a cold front will pass over Austria.
In the past week, an extensive high named Patricia has continuously influenced the Alpine region. With a maximum of 26 to 31 degrees, the maximum values are currently 6 to 10 degrees above the seasonal average. However, the high-pressure influence slowly wears off in the new week, and a cold front moves through in the middle of the week.
“Temperatures will approach the seasonal average by midweek,” forecasts Manfred Spatzierer, chief meteorologist at the Unwetterzentrale (www.uwz.at). Further heat days away from the Föhn valleys are becoming increasingly unlikely: “Temperatures above 30 degrees are infrequent in the lowlands from mid-September onwards.” The latest heat day in Austria was recorded in Deutschlandsberg on October 5, 1983, with a reasonably westerly wind.
Monday will start with early morning fog in some valleys and basins. Otherwise, the sun will shine from the beginning. A few thunderclouds will appear during the day, especially in the western mountainous regions, but the tendency for thunderstorms will remain low. With 26 to 31 degrees, the highs nationwide will be well above the seasonal average.
Also, on Tuesday, the sun shines frequently along the Northern Alps from Vorarlberg to Upper Styria. Still, in the afternoon, individual heat thunderstorms are to be expected. From the evening, the thunderstorm tendency also increases in the Rhine Valley and later in Flachgau and Innviertel. However, it will primarily remain friendly and warm with 25 to 31 degrees summery.
Wednesday will start from Carinthia to the Weinviertel. It is mostly dry and sunny in some areas, but on the northern side of the Alps, it will rain again and again from the beginning. During the day, showers and thunderstorms will spread to large parts of the country. With a maximum of 19 to 28 degrees, it will already cool down on the northern side of the Alps; in the southeast, it will still be summery.
On Thursday, clouds will predominate, and rain will fall frequently, especially in the Alps. In the south, the sun will shine from time to time between showers and thunderstorms; also, from Lake Constance to the Innviertel, it can still be seen in the afternoon and the evening; it will generally dry off gradually. A brisk northwesterly wind will blow in the east, and the highs will only be between 17 and 24 degrees.
On Friday, an intermediate high will make itself felt, and after the dissipation of residual clouds, the sun will show up again frequently; only in the western mountainous region, the tendency for thunderstorms will increase somewhat in the afternoon. Temperatures will rise again slightly, with peaks around 25 degrees. The weekend will be somewhat unsettled in the Alps with local showers and thunderstorms, but in the lowlands, the weather will be friendly, up to 28 degrees, and late summer warm.
