All about the weather in Vienna
The weather will remain wintry, with a brief interruption. Geosphere forecasted this in a preview of the new week.
Regional snowfall is possible on Monday
According to the forecast, clouds will predominate on the northern side of the Alps as far as western Lower Austria on Monday, with occasional light or light snowfall in some regions, but otherwise, it will remain mostly dry, and the sun will shine from time to time. Local patches of fog or high fog in the south will usually clear soon.
In the late afternoon and evening, it may also snow locally on the northern border in Upper and Lower Austria. The wind north of the main Alpine ridge will blow moderately to briskly from the west; in the south, it will remain light. Early temperatures will range from minus eight to zero degrees, with daytime highs of minus one to five degrees.
Tuesday will be mostly sunny
On Tuesday, especially in Upper and Lower Austria and the Mariazell region, heavy clouds and localized light or snowfall will still exist. As the day progresses, it will be dry everywhere and, at times, even mostly sunny. The wind will blow weakly to moderately in the north and east and briskly from the west. It will be minus nine to zero degrees in the morning, with daytime highs reaching minus one to minus five degrees.
Warning of icy conditions on Wednesday
The eastern Alps will continue to be affected by a westerly current on Wednesday. A warm front embedded in this will cause a temporary exchange of air masses in large parts of the country. During the day, with generally heavy cloud cover in the west, in the far north, and towards the evening and south, some rain will set in. Locally, persistent pools of cold air will persist in valleys and hollows, with a risk of slippery conditions in the event of precipitation. The snow line will temporarily rise to over 1,000 meters during the day. The wind will blow weakly to moderately, becoming increasingly brisk from east to south on the eastern edge of the Alps. Early temperatures are expected to be minus twelve to minus four degrees, with daytime highs of zero to plus six degrees.
Cold front reaches Austria on Thursday
A rapidly eastward-moving low-pressure center will be in Poland at midday on Thursday. It will bring another noticeable change in air masses to the eastern Alps with a striking cold front in the second half of the day. Dense cloud cover will bring rain and sleet to the west and north in the morning, with the snow line also dropping rapidly into the valleys as a result. The southern side of the Alps will remain free of precipitation during the day. With the passage of a disturbance, the westerly wind will freshen up strongly to gale force and cause a temporary, significant rise in temperatures in the remaining cold-air lakes. Early temperatures of between minus six and plus two degrees will be followed by daytime highs of two to nine degrees.
A wintry start to the weekend
The significant change in air masses will occur on Friday, with the eastern Alps moving into a cold, north-westerly current under the increasing influence of high pressure. Initially, there will still be the remnants of the cold front, with a few snowflakes in the south-east. Overall, the clouds will tend to clear, but in the north and the northern congestion areas east of the Tennengau, it will remain cloudy with brief snow showers. In addition, strong to stormy westerly winds will blow in the north and on the peaks, with early temperatures of minus eight to minus one degree and daytime highs of minus three to plus three degrees, depending on the wind.
