weather in alps in september

I will be traveling throughout the bavarian forest and into the alps,both german and austria sides, by car as well as some hiking. What kind of weather could I expect, to help in me in my packing? Packing suggestions would be helpful as well. I am female in my early 30's. Thank you

The weather should be similar to Portland at that time of year. The biggest difference is that unlike the slow, all-day drizzles you experience in Portland, Alpine storms usually come out of nowhere, fall heavily for about an hour, then end.

EDIT: And perhaps a bit colder at night, although by no means freezing, unless you camp above the alpine level.
