Snow on the “Zugspitze”

40cm at -5°C:

The highest mountain Germanys, that is located on the border between Germany and Austria, is already in deepest winter. In the past night there was strong snowfall there. This morning the snow on the mountain was already 40cm deep, the thermometer read -5°C. With those measurements the Winter came to the 2,962 m high mountain. Already yesterday the mountain was powdered white already, but with 5cm the snow layer was still relatively thin. Today it still snowed, so that the 50cm might be topped. The melting glacier on the Zugspitze is profiting from this sudden winter: the glaciers melting period is now most likely stopped for this year. It snowed today until 15:30 local time.

At the “forschungststation Schneefernhaus”, a second weather station on the mountain, you can see a small pathway for the Meteorologists on the observation plattform through the snow. Since this is not the weather station that is at the peek, in the morning it was a little warmer than -5°C.
