Forecast update: week ending 16 April

With a easterly airflow covering the Alps, the weather is unusally cool for mid-April. Many places will see the sun this week but there are showers around with snow to low levels at times.

Monday will see plenty of sun to start across the western Alps but a few showers are expected later, heaviest close to the Italian border regions with snow above 1200m. Eastern Alpine areas will see some showers too, espcially northern Austria with some southern regions (notably the Dolomites) staying mostly dry. The weather will be similar on Tuesday with the brighest conditions in the south-east and a risk of showers elsewhere (snow 1200-1500m). For the rest of the week, showers should slowly die out in the west but remain until Thursday in the north-east. Friday looks fine for most parts and it will start to warm up again.
