What a scorcher! I went for a skin this morning to build up fitness pre the touring season. I was down to a base layer 100m above the village. The sky was a perfect blue with no breeze at all. I am typing this at 1400hrs, the temperature in the shade on my balcony is +8 degs. I could see lots of people travelling up from Les Boisses and Brevieres in Tignes, the Melezes run down to Boisses is open but the official verdict is a lack of snow on the bottom part. There are a lot of people in Val D’Isere, thanks to the racing – a great day for spectating. We have now had 14 days of virtually unbroken sunshine!

There will be a drop in temperature tomorrow and a light breeze so it will feel quite a bit cooler, perhaps enough for another layer. There might also be a few clouds at very high levels. Monday and Tuesday will be mainly sunny with a bit more breeze. From Wednesday there will be more clouds on the peaks, a breeze and a slight cooling again. It may feel a bit more like winter but there is no snow on the horizon this week.

If you are travelling by air then there should be no problems with the weather, it will be a bit murky early doors in the London area and there may be the odd gusty shower in Scotland. Over here looks fine at Chambery, Grenoble and Lyon (with maybe a bit of light mist at Lyon). The freezing fog will reappear at Geneva, so just like today where the average delay was 30-45 minutes, there may be some hanging around for an arrivals slot.
