Weather in Germany: the snow line is falling - 20 centimeters of fresh snow in the Alps

With the storm, the temperatures go down again.

On Thursday afternoon, according to the DWD weather experts, light snowfall is to be expected at times in the central, but especially in the eastern mountains above 600 to 800 meters and in the southeast, sometimes down to low altitudes.

Up to 5 centimeters of fresh snow are possible, a little more in the congested areas of the low mountain range.

In the night to Friday, the snow line drops even further - to 200 to 400 meters.

Below that, only slush is to be expected.

But beware, this is where it gets slippery.

In the northeast, the DWD does not rule out short sleet thunderstorms with gusts of wind.

A lot of snow will fall from the sky in the Alps until Friday evening: up to 10 centimeters of fresh snow and 20 centimeters in traffic jams.

Even more in the Chiemgau and Berchtesgaden Alps.

The storm calmed down a bit on Friday.

It will only remain stormy on the coasts and in the mountains.
