SNOWFALL IN AND AFTER THE WEEKEND

Good news for the winter lover: coming days will bring different weather than last week with snowfall, but also with strong winds. A few centimeters of snow will already fall on Friday and Saturday, but from Sunday more serious snowfall is expected on the northern and northwestern side of the Alps. The snow chances decrease in the second half of the week, but with the northerly winds, it remains relatively cold.

Snow on Friday

There is a chance you woke up with a fresh snow layer this morning if you live in southern Switzerland or in Vorarlberg. In the afternoon it is mostly dry and in the valleys, it is mild with 8-10 degrees and regionally even 15 degrees. In the evening, a new zone with precipitation follows in Switzerland and Austria. Above 800-1000 meter, it turns white again with locally more than 10 centimeters of snow. This is accompanied by severe winds from the west, with the highest wind speeds at the top.

More snowfall during the weekend

Especially in the French Alps, Switzerland, and Western-Austria, a lot of snow will fall this coming weekend. The largest amounts are for Sunday and up to 50 centimeters of snow could fall. The snow line decreases to 600-800 meters on Sunday and also some lower valleys receive snow. With 4-7 degrees in the valleys, it is sensitively colder than previous days. Also, it will stay very windy in the mountains and therefore it will not feel pleasant there.

Dry periods later next week

Till Wednesday, the strong northerly winds supply snowfall again at the northern side of the Alps. From Thursday on, drier weather will take over. The sun will come through more often and the wind speeds will decrease. With that, the temperatures will remain in the same range with freezing levels between 800 and 100 meters in height.

Snowfall in Sauerland

In Germany, the rain will turn into snow on Sunday in Sauerland and the Harz mountain range. A snow layer of more than 10 centimeters will be formed and this is also very welcome thereafter the first visit of spring weather. The snow chances remain pleasant the whole week.
