Latest snow forecast

Updated: 2.30pm Friday 17 November 2017

After a fine few days in the Alps, the weather is on the change again with fronts coming down from the north. The first front will bring nothing more than some cloud and the odd light shower to the eastern Austrian Alps later today. The second slightly more active cold front will bring a moderate fall of snow to the north-eastern quarter of the Alps on Sunday and Monday.


On Sunday and Monday we can expect between 10cm and 30cm of new snow above 1500m across a good part of the Austrian Alps (except for the far south) with 40cm+ possible in some favoured spots such as the Vorarlberg (e.g. Lech-Zürs) and the Salzburgland (e.g. Dachstein glacier).


Some north-eastern parts of the Swiss Alps (e.g. Flumserberg, Braunwald) could also see 20-30cm above 1500m, but the further west you go the less snow there will be, with only a dusting likely for the north-western Alps (e.g Portes du Soleil). The southern Alps will also largely miss out, though it will turn colder for a time in all areas.
