The cloud that has just started to arrive will thicken quickly this evening and we will have showers from around 10pm tonight. The thickest of the showers will pass well to the north and the snow level will be around 1900m. So a few cm in the morning to refresh the slopes above the main villages. There is a warning out for freezing rain just down the valley through the night so the roads could be treacherous.
As for the traveller, the authorities are forecasting 25,000 vehicles coming up into the Tarentaise tomorrow and 19,000 leaving so for those arriving mid-afternoon there will be some nose to tail as you come up the hill (expect the lights at Aigueblanche to be in operation to regulate the flow). Hopefully the freezing rain will have stopped for those leaving but there might be the odd hold up and the advice is to leave before 8 or after 12. If you are flying, overall conditions are good (especially over here). There is a moderate risk of fog at the London airports and Birmingham so if that appears (and the chances are it will for at least one – just don’t ask me which) there may be the odd delay.
