This week saw light cloud and snow cover over much of Austria, predominantly on the 20th and 21st, and falling most heavily in the north and east of the country. Temperatures have remained relatively consistent through the week, generally sitting between -5C and -10C moving into Thursday the 22nd February. Thick, low cloud reducing visibility persisted across many resorts, as did more newly recorded snowfall across resorts such as Bad Kleinkirchheim
(50/130cm) and Obertauern
(200/250cm) seeing 10cm, though the majority of resorts seeing snowfall were only reporting lighter dustings. This cloud is significantly impacting visibility across much of the region at all altitudes. The only resorts other than the most easterly resorts seeing sunshine are those glaciers with skiing options above the clouds.
The current weather pattern looks likely to continue over the coming few days with clouds remaining in place over the coming days until at least the early part of the next week. Temperatures look to fluctuate slightly, with Sunday delivering the heaviest snow followed by a bitterly cold Monday next week.
