Many people will have noticed the bitterly cold conditions on their way to work this morning. According to the Central Institute of Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG), the lowest temperature, -17C, was measured in Styria - making it colder even than Canada!
The next few days will do little to warm the spirits, with ZAMG predicting early morning temperatures of -19C and daytime temperatures of just 0C. The coldest temperatures this month were recorded in East Tyrol, Lungau and Upper Carinthia. The average temperature so far this month was just -5.8C.
The outlook for the weekend remains frosty, with morning temperatures of around -15C in the countryside - a perfect excuse for a long lie-in. And if you do venture outside for any amount of time don't forget to wrap up warm with a hat, gloves, scarf, and warm boots.
