Innsbruck – The snowflakes were long in the Tyrolean valleys this winter. At the weekend it will finally get a little white there too. “At least we can look forward to a short winter interlude,” says Werner Troger from den meteo experts to Tyrolean daily newspaper online,
Up to and including Friday it stays sunny and very mild with up to 7 degrees. “In the night to Saturday, dense clouds gather from the west and spread all over Tyrol,” predicts the East Tyrolean meteorologist. They have snow, sleet and rain in their luggage. “In the lower regions like in the Inn Valley there will be more sleet at first. Dangerous black ice is not out of the question. “The snow line continues to fall.” At the latest at night on Sunday it will at least be sugar-coated in the valleys, “predicts Troger.
