FORECAST FRIDAY: Snowy conditions in Austria, next week more often sun
This weekend, snow is expected in Southern Germany and Austria in particular. In the rest of the Alps, it will be less exciting with only a little snow. However, especially the nights are cold with regularly severe frost. Next week the sun shines more often in the Alpine region and the circumstances will be great. It is striking that cold air is also present in Turkey. Moreover, snow is expected there for the coming days.
In the coming days, Southern Germany and especially Austria will receive a fresh layer of snow. Elsewhere in the Alpine region, the snow will be limited to a few centimeters. Up to Sunday evening, locally more than half a meter of fresh snow may fall in the Austrian Alps. Even more, snow will fall locally in places at higher elevations. Elsewhere in the Alps hardly any snow will fall.
Sunny days ahead
After the weekend, the sun will be shining in a large part of the Alps. Although we are still in the month of January, the sun can already be quite bright. Especially at higher altitudes, a little sunblock can do no harm. However, the nights will be cold with regular severe frosts, and also the days will start cold. Therefore, it is also wise to wear a thick coat. In the next week, the temperatures rise gradually, and, in the valleys, it may thaw a little bit. It will be often dry, but Austria has a chance of a little snow again, nevertheless, no large quantities are expected.
Snow also near the Netherlands?
Snow can be enjoyed in winter sports areas closer to the Netherlands as well, but there is not a lot of snow. However, in the coming days, there will fall a little amount of snow in the Winterberg ski region. Because it is freezing mainly during the night, the ski area can be helped with artificial snow from snow cannons as well. Also, in the Black Forest snow is present and the sun will be seen more often in the coming days.
Coldness and snow for Turkey
Although people often think of beautiful and sunny weather when they think of Turkey, the weather forecast for the coming days will be very different. Snow is expected in a large part of the country, especially in the higher elevated parts of the country a thick layer of snow may fall. In addition, it is quite cold here, with severe to very severe frost at night in the interior.
