The former tropical storm named LEE will steer a cold front towards the Alps on Friday. As a result, the southerly foehn wind will come to an end here, and the late summer warmth is finally displaced. Showery and at times heavy rain will gradually spread across our entire area. Up in the mountains, the snow line will rapidly decrease to around 2500 meters above sea level. It will continue to cool down by Saturday, at the astronomical beginning of autumn, and changeable showery weather will set in. Gaps in the clouds will still be the exception for now. On Sunday, a new high-pressure system will form, and consequently, the sun will gradually gain strength during the day. Frequently sunny and increasingly warmer weather will prevail at the beginning of the new week. Indian summer will gain momentum once again.
