Spring really seems to have arrived early, according to the weather experts - but it won't be staying for long.
Saturday is expected to be the warmest day this week, with morning temperatures of six to nine degrees, and a projected high of 14 degrees. After that, the weather will continue to be mild, but not quite as warm as Saturday.
On Thursday rain storms are expected to cover much of the country in the evening. Strong winds are also expected, with up to 90 km/h in some regions. The snow line will also drop to 1,500 metres. A light frost can be expected in the south.
Meanwhile, Austria's southern neighbour is seeing similar spring-like conditions, with Italy expecting temperatures in the 20s this weekend.
