Beware of Föhn!

The Föhn wind is a peculiar Bavarian weather phenomenon. It’s caused when warm air on the Italian side of the Alps rises, cools down and loses humidity. As this very dry air blows across to the Alps, it warms up and creates a static-charged atmosphere that allows very clear views. Many Munich people complain of headaches or dizziness during Föhn.
