Well the snowy weather was a little late on parade – but it arrived with a vengeance at around 3 o’clock when it started snowing heavily with big flakes. We awoke to hill fog in the villages but the sun was shining above 2800m so there was some good skiing ‘en haut’. The clouds rose through the morning and by 1 o’clock the Grande Motte was smothered in grey. But before then we could see big fluffy cumulous clouds to the east – these are now above us, hence the heavy snow. The snow should remain heavy until dark and then there will be lighter showers until the morning.
Tomorrow morning looks a bit like today with layers of cloud, so it will be a game of hunting the gaps though it will improve through the day. But no problems really for those on a transfer day – the local authorities have stopped forecasting numbers, so it can’t be that busy!
Sunday should be a sunny day and a 4 or 5 degree increase in temperature. Monday will be a mixed day; sunny periods in the morning, showers in the afternoon and a gusty wind building in strength through the day. Tuesday seems to be a day of sunny periods before showers start late evening and these will continue for a couple of days.
For the fliers tomorrow, most of the UK will be damp and miserable but nothing to hamper flying. Over here it will be a pleasant day for aviation – you can sit back and relax thinking of us enjoying this new snow (hopefully between 10 and 20cm depending on how moist the flakes are).
