Weak high-pressure influence makes itself noticeable in our area for a short period of time. However, the weather conditions will remain dynamic and varied throughout the upcoming days. On Wednesday, the airflow will shift from northwest to west, resulting in a significant rise in temperature accompanied by some cloud cover. Nonetheless, the sun should still be able to make a notable appearance. On Thursday, the airflow will shift to southwest at the front of a powerful Atlantic low-pressure system. Strong, at times stormy, southerly foehn winds will develop throughout the day, keeping a very active frontal system north of the Alps at bay. Despite considerable cloud cover, the sun will shine particularly over the valleys located within the Alps. Simultaneously, weak southerly barrier effects will build up along the main Alpine ridge. During Thursday night, a notable frontal system is embedded in the southward flow. The foehn winds will temporarily subside, allowing heavy precipitation to spread from the south onto the northern side of the Alps for a while. However, by the weekend, foehn tendencies will prevail once again. Despite a mix of sun and clouds, temperatures will drop sustainably compared to recent conditions. Occasional snow showers can still be expected especially towards the main Alpine ridge.
