Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 16.01.16

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

I have not been out today; but I did meet a frozen gang over cofee who said that the snow was great but it was bone chillingly cold. That said, the weather gnomes surprised all with sunny periods this morning as the feature weakened a bit quicker than expected. This was good news for those flying but I saw there were a few accidents on the roads this morning. The Red Bull Linecatcher was cancelled for safety reasons.

A few flocons have started flying past the window this afternoon and this will pretty much carry on through the night and through tomorrow. The wind will pick up tomorrow but there will be no increase in temperature so wrap up – exposed flesh could soon be at risk of frost nip if you go high. Monday will be much more benign; the freezing level will rise to 800m the wind will drop and the sun will be out. It will gradually cloud over in the afternoon ahead of light snow showers and cloud throughout Tuesday. Sunny periods and showers beyond that – but confidence in that forecast is low so anything could happen and probably will.

For those travelling tomorrow it will be cold and damp, so pray for a jetway to take you to the aircraft. Virtually the whole of the UK will have snow or sleet showers overnight but they should have stopped in time so that runway surfaces and planes can be cleared before the early take-offs. It will then be misty and horrible for the rest of the morning but only a 40% chance of freezing fog at Luton to delay any flights. At the alpine end of the journey there may be light snow showers at any of the 4 airports but unless one really kicks off nothing to curtail flying. But standby for a hangover clearing icy blast as you step off the plane!
