On holiday in Austria.
The Republic of Austria is a country located in Central Europe. Austria is situated in the Alps, which means that a large part of the country is mountainous. Approximately two thirds of Austria lies at more than five hundred metres above sea level. Because of its location, the large bodies of water have little influence on the weather in Austria. Therefore, Austria has a temperate continental climate with a high mountain climate at the higher altitudes. Typical for the weather in Austria is the capriciousness you can have to deal with. This can cause big differences in temperature and weather within a relatively short period of time. In addition, the weather, especially locally, is sometimes difficult to predict. The mountains can play an unexpected role, causing the final weather to be quite different from what the meteorologists predicted. Especially in the Alps, the risk of sudden changes of weather is to be expected throughout the year.
The climate in Austria
Austria has three different climates. The highest areas (in, for example, Tyrol and Vorarlberg) have a high mountain climate (type EH) and the lower parts have a temperate continental climate (type Dfb). The transition areas between these two climate zones have a cold continental climate, with cold winters and fairly cool summers. In the far west of Austria, there are some areas with a microclimate, with the temperate maritime climate (Cfb climate) being the most common.The fact that Austria largely has a continental climate and is virtually unaffected by the sea is reflected in the stark nature of the weather. The weather can change completely within one or a few days and also within the country there can be quite large differences in weather type and temperature at the same time. The Alpine regions are particularly susceptible to this and there can even be great differences per mountain or side of a mountain. A well-known weather phenomenon that can cause a sudden change in the weather is the föhn. This warm wind can cause a rapid rise in temperature and is often accompanied by dry, clear air.
