The Alps are located at the southern edge of a Scandinavian low under weak high-pressure influence. Early wintry cold and rather dry air will still push towards our area from the north. Sunny conditions will prevail into Thursday, nice late autumn weather is expected. From Thursday through Friday, the current will veer to southwest, a heavy southerly foehn wind will revive in the mountains. Thus, temporarily milder but also cloudier air masses will reach us from the western Mediterranean region. On Friday, more cloudy conditions will prevail, however, significant amounts of precipitation are hardly expected. Longer dry intervals are also expected on Saturday. Heavy clouds will result in first precipitation but not before the late afternoon. The precipitation will probably stay with us until Sunday morning. At the same time, polar cold air will reach us consequently the temperatures will massively decrease at all altitudes on Sunday.
