Lifts in Operation
The Alpine region is in front of a low-pressure area with the centre over the Western Mediterranean region. The high which has determined the weather recently, has moved to East Europe. Between these two air-pressure formations a strong southerly current has settled in, a foehny weather situation has established itself in the Alps. This weather situation will continue throughout the upcoming days. Compact clouds and occasional precipitation will accumulate at the main Alpine ridge. North thereof the southerly foehn wind will repeatedly become stormy-gusty. The temperatures will be early summer-like warm. The foehn current will abate throughout Friday. With a cold front partly heavy precipitation is expected, the snow line will reach below 1500m. At the weekend further showers will approach from northwest, then the snow line will even reach towards 1000m.
