We awoke to a brooding sky this morning, so having read my own forecast I decided to do a load of travel bookings for the summer and then go and grab some ‘fresh tracks’ in the pool at the Lagon. Imagine my surprise when the sun came out and it was a nice morning for a couple of hours. The front had really slowed up as it hit the mountains; it was chucking it down with rain at the airports early this morning! Anyway, order was restored after lunch with bad light; it is now snowing moderately. Still, a good first morning for the new arrivals.
The snow will stop sometime after dark and you may see the odd star. The cloud will return before breakfast and we will have a mix of sleet and snow in the morning with the odd sunny period in the afternoon. A stiff breeze will build up at altitude and the snowline will hover around Tignes Les Brevieres. The official forecasts are disagreeing about snow amounts – let’s say about 5-8cm for today and 5-10cm for tomorrow.
Tuesday looks like a day of cloud with precipitation on and off through the day. It will be a degree or two warmer so the snow line will be around the level of the village in Val d’Isere, still with a cheeky breeze at height. After this it’s all a bit unpredictable with a number of troughs of low pressure floating about. But Wednesday looks like the best day with sunny periods and much warmer temperatures. Thursday and Friday look like being showery with gusty winds, but the freezing level rises rapidly to the height of the Grande Motte so the less showers we have by day, the better.
