It's been snowing again in the Alps. The northern current is on fire and the temperature will drop rapidly today. The snow will come down in the high alpine at first, but the temperature will drop in the night from Monday to Tuesday and lots of mountains in Austria, the Czech Republic and Slovakia. The snow line will drop to around 1500 meters and locally this might be even lower. This is all caused by a northern current that will be pretty strong the next couple of days. The intensity of the precipitation will decrease over time, because the air pressure is rising.
We can expect more freshies at mid-mountain level in Austria the next couple of days. If you have a look at the webcams today, you'll mostly see freshies in the high alpine, but that's about to change.
This already looks nice, but since the snow line is still pretty high we can expect the first snow on the lower mountain webcams tomorrow. Especially the eastern parts of Austria (like this resort), can expect lots of freshies.
The air will remain cold until the end of the week and the weather will be pretty unstable in the Alps from time to time. Higher temperatures will try to make a comeback in the week after this one. This shift in temperature is something we'll see quite a lot the next couple of months. This storm will bring some snow to the Austrian glaciers, but it's definitely not enough to create the first base layer for the winter to come. More details tomorrow!
Stay stoked, Morris
