    Hi,

    Haven't posted here for a while since last winter I think - but will I will try and post more when the snow arrives.

    First proper snow today. :) ( not the first snow since we had falling snow in

    September but did not settle). The mountains must have about 20cm or more

    now.

    We had a covering yesterday morning but even though it snowed all day the

    laying snow melted. The temp was about 3oC. But last night the temp dropped

    below freezing ( it is now -1oC) and this morning we have about 6 cm and it

    is still snowing!!! :D

    More is forecast tonight and tomorrow. This is very early for snow haven't

    even got the snow tyres on yet!!!

    I will upload some photos later.

    Do people think there is going to be the season when we get a Scandinavian

    High- if we do I think it could get very cold around here!!

    Nigel

    Hi,

    It has now been snowing here non-stop for over 36 hours!! This usually happens when we get a north or north-eastern wind we just get loads of snow. On the radar there is no snow anywhere else but over us!!

    The depth of snow is now about 30 cm, and looking at the radar quite a lot more to come!! Temp is -1oC.

    Amazing for October!!

    I will post some more photos later.

    Hi,

    Snowed on and of all day yesterday but it had started to melt on the ground. But today temp is 0oC and it is snowing again!! Even the road is covered again. But it has forecast 12 oC by the weekend so it will melt by then . Although on the mountains it will not. We must have had about 30cm so far in the village and the mountains must have easily over 60 cm!! Lets hope its a good sign for the winter!!

    Here is our local ski slope- unfortunately the lift were not opened but some people had climbed up. This is at the bottom of the lift at village level.

    Sking at slope

    Hi,

    There are weather warnings out for Austria because of the risk of heavy snow this weekend.

    I have just been out for a quick walk and there must be about 20 cm already!! DD

    http://www.wetteronline.de/dldlradf.htm

    The mountains must have loads now .This morning the official depth was 50 cm and it has snowed all day and all night so far.

    I will post some pictures tomorrow.

    Hi,

    We know have about 50cm of snow and it is still snowing!!! Still quite a lot on the radar although it has forecast to turn to sleet for a while tomorrow but it might not because the snow depth may keep the temp colder. We will have to see- it has forecast sleet or rain before and then it has remained snow. At the moment the long range forecast is for snow for the next week!![ :D ] and day time temp down to -2oC I will have to wait to see if this willl happen!!

    Here are a few pictures taken this morning:-

    Hi All

    The austrian snow is amazing, I am trying to will it down towards the frnch/italian alps where I head for hopeful snow in 11 weeks time, arghhh that will take ages to arrive.

    Hopefully it wont be as disastorous in terms of andorra last year!

    Hi,

    Thanks for your comments.

    Just a quick report. Had rain yesterday but turned back to snow last night and it has been snowing since then.

    We now have 80cm in the village and 150cm on he mountain.

    I have now set up a webcam of my garden:-

    http://austriasnow.camstreams.com/

    It will only allow about 8 people on at the same time so you have to keep refreshing if it busy!! I am only just setting it up at the moment so I hope to improve on this with time.

    Can anyone recommend a good webcam or a wireless one??

    Hope you like it.

    Nigel

    Hi,

    Its snowing again!! :) As id did yesterday. The official depth now is 80cm in the village. It has been that for the last 3 days even though it has been snowing since then. I think it because the snow has compacted due to the weight. The temp last night was -5 oC and is at the mo0ment -1.5 oC.

    The lifts are open this weekend and so I should get my first ski of the season!! :)

    The next village is still cut off due to Avalanche risk on the road which has been in place since Saturday.

    I will try and post some new photos later.

    Nigel
