According to a meteorologist, a “turbulent weather pattern” is coming to Europe. And it has snow, massive storm surges and lots of heavy rain in tow.
Worryingly, meteorologist Clemens Teutsch-Zumtobel has issued a weather forecast for the coming days. On Platform X, he writes: “Turbulent weather is ahead in Europe. Storms and rain on the Iberian Peninsula and southern France Heavy rain from Liguria to Ticino and South Tyrol. Föhn storm in the Alps Snowfall is possible in Germany and Poland. High tide/storm surge at the Baltic Sea”. And, “There hasn’t been a pressure gradient like this in a long time.”
“The stronger the foehn, the greater the pressure differential between BLZ and INN. From Thursday to Saturday, gale-force winds exceeding 130 km/h are forecast for the mountains. In the valleys, it’s stormy,” says the expert.
And this is how it looks specifically in Austria: Wednesday begins in the valleys and lowlands in places with fog patches, which are evident in the morning. Subsequently, a primarily friendly sun-cloud mix will set in; dense clouds will only persist in the far west. During the day, it will remain predominantly dry; towards evening, the tendency for showers will increase from Vorarlberg to the Mühlviertel and Waldviertel. With temperatures between 10 and 18 degrees, the southeast wind will be moderate to brisk and strong in the east.
On Thursday, the main ridge of the Alps and the area south of it will remain covered in thick clouds, from which a few drops will occasionally fall. On the northern side of the Alps and in the eastern lowlands, the high fog-like residual clouds will clear hesitantly in the morning, followed by sunny spells with a brisk southeasterly wind in the lowlands or a southerly wind in the mountains. Depending on the sun and the Föhn, the highs will range between 11 and 21 degrees.
Friday has a few sunny clearings on the foehn northern side of the Alps and in the southeast, but in the lowlands, fog persists in places in the first half of the day. However, it will remain cloudy and occasionally wet from the Silvretta along the main Alpine ridge to the Upper Murtal and south of it. With strong, the mountain’s stormy south-to-southeast winds, temperatures will rise to 13 to 23 degrees.
On Saturday, the sun will shine from Upper and Lower Austria to Burgenland and southern and eastern Styria. In the west and southwest, however, the day will often be cloudy and occasionally wet; especially in the southern mountain ranges, it will rain heavily. The initially southerly solid foehn will weaken from the west during the day, and then rain will also spread to the northern side of the Alps. Before that, it will be warmer, with 14 to 24 degrees, especially in the east.
