Especially in Upper Carinthia and in the East Tyrol area, Frau Holle caused snowfall on Tuesday, which even turned valleys into winter landscapes. Be careful on the roads.
A strong Italian low will bring plenty of precipitation to the Alpine region on Tuesday. It’s not just in the mountains and the ski areas that people are cheering about fresh snow, it’s also already wintry in some valleys meters to be expected,” says Manfred Spatzierer, chief meteorologist at the Severe Weather Center (www.uwz.at). Depending on the intensity of precipitation, the snow line drops down to the valleys – such as in the Gailtal and in large parts of East Tyrol. During the night on Wednesday, the focus of precipitation will shift to the east. “According to the current status, there will only be wet flakes in the lowlands, the snowfall line should remain around 400 to 500 meters,” says Spatzierer. Fire brigades had to move out, especially in Upper Carinthia, because of fallen trees and stuck vehicles.
