A combination of extremely damp weather blowing in from Italy and very cold air from Russia means snow is expected across Austria on Monday - with even a sprinkling of snowflakes forecast for Vienna.

The snow line will drop to 500 metres and Carinthia, Styria and some parts of the Vienna Woods are expected to get five inches of snow.

This follows an extremely mild autumn in Austria - the warmest recorded for 247 years.

On average temperatures were 2.2 degrees warmer than normal, Alexander Orlik of the Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) said in a press release. The warmest autumn day was recorded in Salzburg-Freisaal on September 19th, with 28.5 degrees.

Ski resorts are eagerly waiting for snow so that the season can begin. Snow cannons cannot be used until temperatures drop to minus three.
