On Thursday, there is snow on many mountains and in higher valleys in Austria above about 1,500 to 1,800 meters above sea level – as of course in the province of Salzburg such as Obertauern.
“It snowed most on the mountains of Salzburg and Upper Styria and in places in East Tyrol above and Upper Carinthia. Here, around 20 to 50 centimeters of snow has fallen from around 2,200 above sea level since yesterday,” said Alexander Orlik from the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG .)).
On Friday, according to the forecast, snowfall and rain should subside everywhere, and the clouds should loosen up a bit. The weekend will be reasonably sunny, with temperatures between ten and 16 degrees in the afternoons. In the morning it can be frosty in places on the weekend, especially on Sundays in many Alpine valleys as well as in the Mühlviertel and Waldviertel.
In the coming week, the next cold front should move to Austria on Tuesday. The snow line then drops to a height of 1,000 meters.
According to measurements by the ZAMG, there was most of the fresh snow on Thursday, 7 a.m., on the Sonnblick (Salzburg, 3,109 meters above sea level) with 40 centimeters (66 centimeters total snow depth), running from the Rudolfshütte (2,317 meters) with 22 centimeters (30 centimeters total snow depth). 17 centimeters of fresh snow was measured on the Villacher Alpe (Carinthia) and on the Pitztal Glacier (Tyrol).
