Latest snow forecast
Updated: 1.10pm Friday 25 February 2022
After the passage of a weak cold front that will bring a little snow to some northern parts of the Alps tonight and early tomorrow, especially in Switzerland (e.g. Engelberg) and Austria (e.g. Lech, Saalbach, Kaprun), high pressure will then take charge of the weather in the Alps, meaning that it will be relatively quiet over the next few days at least.
From tomorrow there will be plenty of fine, sunny weather which will last until the middle of next week and perhaps beyond.
The area of high pressure is positioned in a way that means that the air will be coming mostly from the east. This is good news for the Alps as this is a cool wind direction at this time of year, which will limit the pace of any snow melt, despite the rapidly strengthening sun...
Detailed weather & snow forecast:
Saturday will start mostly cloudy in the Austrian Alps, with some flurries to low levels across the north (e.g. Seefeld, Kaprun, Schladming). These will tend to die out later though, with some sunny spells developing. The far west (e.g. Lech) and south (e.g. Nassfeld) will be mostly dry and sunny throughout.
Sunday and Monday will be dry and mostly sunny but quite cool with freezing levels generally below 1500m.
Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be sunny across the French Alps. Saturday will be relatively cool with freezing levels below 1500m, but it will then become warmer with freezing levels creeping up to around 2200m on Sunday, and then 2400m on Monday.
Saturday, Sunday and Monday will be mostly sunny in the Italian Alps, with just a few clouds drifting into the far east (Dolomites) on Monday.
Temperatures will be on the cool side throughout, with freezing levels generally below 1800m.
Saturday will be mostly sunny in the Swiss Alps, although there may be few clouds early in the day in the north-east. It will remain sunny on Sunday and Monday.
Temperatures will be on the cool side throughout, with freezing levels below 1500m on Saturday then rising a little on Sunday and Monday.
With high pressure in charge of the weather in the Alps, it will remain mostly fine on Tuesday and Wednesday and will also turn a little milder.
