The DWD predicts rain in many places, which comes from the sky "above 800 to 1000 meters" in the form of snow.
Temperatures drop to 3 to 6 degrees.

DWD warns of black ice and "light snowfall" in Bavaria
The DWD issued some official warnings for Sunday evening and Monday.
On the edge of the Alps, there is a warning of "light snowfall" from Monday, 3 a.m. to 10 a.m.
It will be spread smoothly, the message says.
In the south of Bavaria, there is also a warning about "low Gätte" (Monday night, 0 a.m. to 3 a.m.).
In Lower Bavaria, this warning is valid until Monday morning (6 a.m.).
A level two warning against gusts of wind is also in effect throughout Monday (warning from 12:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.).
Only the districts on the edge of the Alps are affected.
"Storm gusts occur above 1500 meters with speeds between 70 km/h (20 m/s, 38 kn, Bft 8) and 80 km/h".
In “exposed locations” severe gusts of wind around 90 km/h must be expected.
The ski areas that have turned green should be particularly happy about the upcoming winter weather.
