In 1996 a strange phenomenon happened in Saalbach Hinterglemm. The public weather forecast showed a field of low pressure on Poland and Austria was situated within its sphere of influence. Fresh, dry air was arriving in from Scandinavia. In Saalbach (cloudless sky during the whole day) the minimum temperature in the morning was minus 10,6°C, and in the late morning about minus -6°C. At the same time humidity reached about 85%, later about 65-70%. Generally, when there are high pressures of this kind the region next to the Alps and the deepest Alpine valleys are covered by fog. However, at the same time there is clear sunshine on the peaks. That’s the methereological reason for this halogen phenomenon. A halogenous phenomenon is so-called when at least five different types of halogenous phenomena are visibile at the same time. It seems as thought the sky is full of rainbows. In ancient times these phenomena were considered divine.
