The airflow which is determining our weather at the moment will swing to the south on Thursday. With the foehn setting in, the risk of precipitation will decrease and it should stay mostly dry. The clouds will clear to leave brighter and even sunny spells.


The weather will remain dry for the rest of the week. Sunday will bring still colder but also nicer weather.
