I went out for a bit of fresh air, as it was quite windy on high I thought I would pop down to Les Brevieres, not the greatest of plans as it was waves of frozen slush, so unless we get more snow then that is probably it for down there. The Lac du Chevril is very low now, the bridge at the La Daille end is starting to loom from beneath the murky depths. Lots of power been generated over the winter.
There have been very light snow showers on and off, barely making an impact on the ground though. The traffic down the valley seems to be running OK. They have been trying a convoy system from Bourg to Moutiers today, where a municipal vehicle travels at 25kph so everything keeps moving and doesn’t cause a traffic jam at the tunnel. Can’t see the locals being particularly happy to obey that!
The light snow will continue until late and then the intensity will pick up through the early hours. There is a mini retour d’est going on so Le Fornet will get more than Val and so on. So the eastern end of the resort will do best. Nevertheless there should be enough to turn the place white again. The snowline will be around 2000m, it might get a bit breezy during the night too, a spot of work for the pisteurs in the morning. The wind will drop after breakfast and the snowline will rise a bit so it will be miserable in the villages tomorrow, the precipitation will carry on until lift closing time. Spring returns on Monday, a few fluffy clouds will build up in the afternoon. Tuesday morning looks good with a chance of a shower in the afternoon and evening, again the snowline will be about 2200m by day if you catch one. It is the reverse on Wednesday, showers in the morning, clearing later. However, the atmosphere is all a bit wishy-washy at the moment, so don’t hang your hat on this forecast! No problems weather-wise for flying.
