Having read my own forecast I decided to do some more end-of-season chores but for those on the slopes the forecast was a bit out as the trough headed north and dumped heavy showers over Lyon. The snow didn’t really arrive until about 2 o’clock and it was quite light. So I suspect some people had a good 3/4 day’s skiing. However, it is now hailing and looks thoroughly miserable down on the snow front for the last of the Franco Folies concerts in Tignes Le Lac. I can hardly hear it because the hail is rattling off my velux windows.
The snow will continue into the early hours of tomorrow morning, so I am still hopeful for that 10cm or so. The sky will then progressively clear to leave a nice day with a few clouds around the peaks and maybe one or two down the valley. Friday looks like another day of sunny periods and maybe a breeze at altitude. Saturday will be similar but it will be windy at altitude and a good few degrees warmer. The following 3 days are currently forecast to be a mixture of sunshine and thundery showers. If these happen by day the snow level could be higher than 3000m, so lets hope they are few and far between. As ever with a thunderstorm there will be gusty winds around if you catch one, but if you arrive at height just after one there may be a few cm of powder – but not for very long!
Late breaking news (1645 hrs) – it is now snowing heavily!
