Low pressure area PHILIPP provided abundant precipitation in the Southern Alps and unusual amounts
of fresh snow for this time of year. Locally, up to 138 mm of precipitation fell within 24 hours.
At the beginning of April, a trough formed in a bulge of the polar front. Because the jetstreak was located
west of the trough axis, its could be increased in a short time. The trough quickly reached Great Britain,
France, the Iberian Peninsula and even the northern border of Africa.
