A grizzly day in the Alps. It has been snowing lightly and blowing a gale all day. It was a day for the hardy, so I stopped in. I think we have had about 4 or 5 cm since last night but it is difficult to tell as it is all moving so quickly! I guess it was a good day for the indoor athletics competition which is taking place in Tignespace, it is even big enough for the pole vault in there.The light snow will continue till after dark, when the skies will clear gradually to leave a sunny day tomorrow. The wind will remain so wrap up warm again. Expect the top lifts to be closed and the mountain terraces to be empty. Saturday will still be cold and a day of sunny periods, the breeze will be much lighter. There may be another dusting of snow overnight, but the skies will be mainly clear by Sunday morning, but the breeze will pick up a little. After that the synoptic chart is a witch’s brew of inconsistency; clouds, sunny periods and snow showers but in what order I don’t really know – stay tuned.
