The bright October weather with sunshine and pleasant warm temperatures will soon belong to the past. Low air pressure will spread across the Alpine regions, cold polar air masses will reach us by Wednesday. A stormy north-westerly wind will bring air masses filled with large amounts of clouds bringing precipitation to the mountains. The snow line will sink below a level of 1000 meters, consequently the winter will reach the lower regions. In the course of Thursday, the last precipitation will slowly abate, though the temperatures will remain rather cold. Friday and Saturday promise improved conditions and rising temperatures.
