Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 02.01.17

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

Alert the Media! – a cloud was seen today over the Espace Killy! It started somewhat cooler this morning with a gentle breeze, but the sun was out. I was glad I had dug out the thicker jacket for the first time this season. A veil of cloud appeared in the afternoon, and it is now officially overcast. I took some friends over to Le Fornet where the snow is in excellent condition, but we did download into Val to avoid the dreaded evils of La Face. The resorts were still quite busy today but I expect it to be a lot quieter tomorrow as France returns to work. The number of Russian accents has increased as we approach the Orthodox New Year.

We may see the odd flocon overnight, but certainly nothing to get excited about, but the sky will clear from midnight onwards to leave another chilly but bright morning tomorrow. The weather midweek is a bit unpredictable at the moment, a complex series of fronts is heading our way, but it is not well defined. But the best guess for Wednesday, is another couple of degrees colder and it currently looks like the cloud will build through the day along with the winds and some snow should appear after dark, how much is anyone’s guess somewhere between 0 and 20cm. Thursday will put the B into Baltic. The snow will finish by breakfast time, the maximum air temperature will be -5 degs and it may well be blowing a gale. Friday should be bright and cold. However, all this could change easily, it will all depend on the passage of the fronts. I don’t normally forecast beyond 5 or 6 days but the Jetstream appears to be heading south next week which is normally a sign of much more unsettled weather. This is reflected in the long range forecasts and it is good news but expect the forecasts for next week to fluctuate wildly.
