It won’t stay rainy for long, though; the sun will return as early as Wednesday, Geosphere Austria (formerly ZAMG) reported Sunday in its weather forecast for the coming week. It remains decidedly mild.
The details: On Monday, there will initially be some fog or haze in basins and valleys at the start of the new working week, which, however, will gradually clear. Apart from that, the sun will once again shine widely. On the other hand, the first clouds of a cold front will arrive in Vorarlberg in the morning and slowly move east until the evening with showers of rain and thunderstorms. It will remain predominantly dry in Lower Austria, Burgenland, and southeastern Styria. Forecasters predict moderate to brisk southerly winds, especially on the eastern edge of the Alps and in the east of lowlands, as well as föhn zones on the northern side of the Alps. The wind will gradually shift to the west with the passage of disturbances. Early temperatures will range from nine to 18 degrees, with daytime highs reaching 21 to 30 degrees, with the lowest values in East Tyrol and Upper Carinthia.
Tuesday will bring rain and showers to many areas of Austria thanks to clouds from a cold front passing over the country. However, the precipitation focus will slowly shift to the south and southeast during the day. Here, individual thunderstorms may also mix with the precipitation. From the north, the rain will finally decrease in the afternoon, and the sunny spells will also become more frequent and longer. The wind will blow moderately to briskly from the west, especially in the north and east—twelve to 20 degrees in the morning and 18 to 26 degrees during the day.
The sun is out significantly more again as of Wednesday thanks to rising air pressure. However, a few denser and higher cloud fields can still pass through. Most of the time, the wind will be light and only moderately strong in exposed areas from the southeast. From a fresh seven to 15 degrees in the morning, temperatures will rise to 22 and 27 degrees.
Thursday will be sunny after the clearing of local fog. Although it is mostly dry there, the majority of source clouds can be seen south of the main Alpine ridge. Especially at the eastern edge of the Alps, the southeast wind will pick up strongly during the day. Early temperatures will range between nine and 16 degrees Celsius, with daily highs between 22 and 29 degrees Celsius, with the warmest temperatures in Lower Austria.
On Friday, another cold front will cross Austria from west to east. This will bring high clouds and rain showers, locally accompanied by thunder and lightning. The moderate to brisk southeast wind turns to the west with the front passage. By evening, the precipitation activity in the north of the country decreases again for the most part. Early temperatures range between nine and 17 degrees, with daily highs between 19 and 27 degrees.
