Due to current rainfall and flow forecasts, Verbund has started reducing the large Drau reservoirs at the Rosegg, Feistritz and Edling power plants (Völkermarkter reservoir).

During Friday, the Völkermarkt reservoir will gradually be reduced to a total of 1.5 meters below normal levels, and the reservoirs at the Feistritz and Rosegg power plants (urban area of ​​Villach) will be reduced to almost one meter below normal levels.

Heavy rain

From the current perspective, Carinthia should not experience heavy snowfall. However, Ubimet says that instead of snow, heavy rain will be expected on Saturday night. “It is raining very heavily. The focus is on the Lower Gailtal and Villach Alps region. “A minor flood is expected there,” says Ubimet meteorologist Nikolas Zimmermann. According to Ubimet, the snowfall limit in Carinthia is expected to fall only on Saturday, and the valleys will also see white or “some snow”. For example, in Lienz in East Tyrol it will snow lightly from 7 am, while in Klagenfurt it will snow only in the morning.
