Latest snow forecast

Updated: 3.30pm Friday 10 March 2017

After a very unsettled week, the weather in the Alps is now starting to settle down.

 

Over the next few days there will be some areas of cloud, and even the odd shower, but most places will stay dry and there will be plenty of sunshine on offer. It will also be relatively mild – even feeling quite warm in any sunshine, especially on south-facing slopes.

 

The next significant snow is unlikely to be until the back end of next week, at the earliest…

Detailed forecast:

Austria

Saturday will be dry and mostly sunny though some clouds are likely in the north and east later. Freezing levels will reach 2000m or more in the west (e.g. St Anton), but will be closer to 1400m in the east (e.g. Obertauern).

 

Sunday and Monday will remain mostly dry with variable cloud, sunny spells with little change in temperature.
