Around mornings 2.-3. September, frosts are possible in Alpine and Carpathian valleys below 1000 MASL and outlook isn´t so hot such appeared before a few days, therefore it´s very possible, that snow cover in 2021 won´t be melted.

Lastly, it became in 2016, but in 2021, a much higher snow cover is reported.

The year 2021 in Austria will have a temperature anomaly from the long-term average such the year 1992.
