The Monday is initially quite sunny at higher altitudes. While the fog fields in the lowlands on the northern side of the Alps are increasingly clearing, the Waldviertel can stay gray for longer, and it is often murky in the south, where multi-layered clouds rise later. Thin cloud fields also make it over the Alps and can affect the sunshine a bit.
