Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 02.01.16

As the evening draws in it is getting slowly getting colder and the roads are now white. We have probably had about 10cm of wet snow in Tignes – Val d’Isere, which will be great when it has been bashed on the pistes and higher up of course it will be much nicer. Looks like it is going to continue snowing on and off until midnight.

The weather forecast remains much as yesterday – the actual timings of the fronts and troughs will change though. But I am holding out on the forecast for at least a metre of snow this week. Tomorrow will be better in the morning with the odd glimpse of the sun, but the clouds will fill in and snow will start again late in the evening. There will be a breeze and the freezing level has dropped down to 1200m so it will be much colder than last week. Monday will be a whiteout with gales – head for the trees! Tuesday now looks windy and snowy, but there will be snow showers with sunny spells on Wednesday. Thursday and Friday will also provide a mixed bag. The Avalanche Risk for tomorrow is 2 out of 5, this will then rise as the snow falls.

For those flying tomorrow it will be showery across the whole of the UK and there will be gusty winds close to the showers which will make for a bumpy ride. Nothing to curtail flying though except at Leeds where there is a chance of hill fog early on. Over here will be a much nicer day for flying with the odd chance of patchy fog at Grenoble. The later flights will be bumpier as the wind picks up ahead of Monday’s gales.
