Tyrol area--Has this summers weather been typical

I spent a week in Kitzbuhel in late July. It was cold cloudy and damp (13-16 deg) with a couple of sunny days (24-26 deg).

Looking at the weather since it has looked very similar.

I don't want to be put off by this years experience...but does anybody know if this is normal.

Has this just been a bad summer?

Thanks

Not a weatherman but I would not consider this a normal summer.

Many huge variatiojns of temperature , some extreme weather storms /rain- it seems you experienced some of this .

and talking with friends in Tirol today -

They have some freezing temperatures and a good amount of snow in higher regions. This still August and usually the cows do not leave higher pqastures for some weeks.

If interested look on some of the web cams in the region.

After 2 successive years of spoiled wet holidays in June in Tirol we vowed never to return.But we relented this year.Had a week in Zell am See in June,went on the train one day to Kitz.The whole week was unbearably hot and humid,so much so that we wished our 4* hotel had aircon.Just goes to prove that weather in mountainous areas is very changeable.The day we were in Kitz the temperature was 31C on the read out of the taxi dashboard.It felt like it too.Waitress in our hotel told us her brother in law worked on the boat hire on Lake Zell.One midday the temperature in the sun (no shade for him) was 40C.
