Basically, a warm front with dense clouds lies over Austria in the middle of the week. The chances of sunshine will therefore, remain low until the evening. In Tyrol and Vorarlberg, it is already raining frequently in the morning with a rapidly rising snow line. Slippery roads due to freezing precipitation are to be expected in basins and valleys. By the evening, precipitation will also begin to fall in the parts of the country north of the Danube and occasionally in East Tyrol, Carinthia, and Salzburg. Here, too, there is a risk of black ice.
Brisk south-to-south-westerly winds will freshen up in foehn lines on the north side of the Alps and on the eastern edge of the Alps. Maximum daily temperatures will be minus 1 to plus 10 degrees, with the warmest temperatures at medium altitudes.
Thursday will remain icy
The roads will remain icy on Thursday, too. A weather front will move through from west to southeast in the morning hours, bringing rain and freezing rain with it. The sun is likely to make an appearance in the course of the morning. Foehn winds from the southwest to south will ensure relatively mild temperatures of 2 to 12 degrees.
Winter will then return abruptly in the afternoon and into the evening; a second front from Switzerland, Bavaria, and the Czech Republic will bring more rain, with the snow line dropping below 1000 meters in most cases. A lot of snowfall and north-westerly solid winds are then expected in many places during the night into Friday.
