Tignes Val d’Isere Snow Report & Weather Forecast – 04.04.17

Meteo Mike Snow Reports Tignes Val d'IsereBy Meteo Mike

The snow had transformed dramatically since yesterday, it was distinctly heavy up in the Col du Ves. In other places it has yet to transform into spring snow, though there were bits around. This was mainly because the cloud appeared a bit earlier than we thought. It is now almost overcast. We did have a cruise down to La Daille for coffee, slushy but manageable and still deep and white. Being short on sympathy today we did not feel sorry for the group coming down the closed Triffolet run, as they had to walk down 200m over the grass into the village! I had to come in early after I had promised to help a friend move furniture after some insurance work on his apartment.We might get a few showers this evening, there are a few light ones kicking around the area according to the radar picture. Tomorrow will be similar to today, the cloud may thicken a bit earlier and the showers might start around midday. The weather fronts are just drifting around and they are weak, meaning its hard to pin down, but there will be nothing dramatic. Thursday will start with sunny periods. The clouds will then disperse to leave a sunny afternoon, but the penalty is quite a strong breeze at altitude so it will feel a bit cooler. The wind will remain for Friday but the air will be 4 or 5 degrees warmer and it will be sunny all day, a good day to reapply the sun tan lotion! The weekend will be sunny and another couple of degrees warmer with little wind – its going to be a scorcher.
