After a surprisingly mild start to November Austria is in for some icy temperatures this week, with snow and heavy rain forecast.

Tuesday night will see heavy rain and wind across the country and the snow line will drop to 800 metres.

In the south of the country, on the border with Italy, forecasters are warning of heavy rain on Tuesday followed by possible flooding and mudslides.

By Wednesday low lying areas will also be hit by colder temperatures. Innsbruck will see temperatures fall from plus three to minus three.

Only Vienna will have warmer temperatures, around plus nine. But as the weekend approaches it will get colder in the capital and across the country, with the snowline forecast to fall to 500 metres by Sunday.

Heavy snow is forecast along the main Alpine ridge.
