According to the late season in the Styrian part of the Enns valley low stratus developped during night time. Because of almost undamped solar insolation the stratus dissolved until late morning. A time lapse video is shown from south of Admont close to the Kaiserau pass heading north towards the Haller Mauern mountains in about 900 m msl. The location can be seen here at Google Maps .
