Good Morning from Manchester Airport, an early forecast today as I will be off grid until this evening!
The actual detail of the forecast has changed a little and I expect it will again as there is a series of weak weather features over the next few days which can’t seem to decide what they are going to do. The rest of today will be glorious, if a little chilly so get out and enjoy it! After a cold night, tomorrow will start with a milky sky, it may be thin enough not to cause any bother at all but it will thicken a bit in the afternoon to steal the light. Friday will be cloudy and cold, there may be a few flocons in the afternoon. The wind will strengthen in the late afternoon and it will start snowing lightly sometime between Happy Hour and midnight. Saturday will be windy (high lifts closed) cloudy and snowy. The rain/snow line will be towards Bourg so getting out of the resort will require snow tyres or chains. The snow will intensify in the morning so expect queues down the hill, if you are on a tight schedule leave before 6am. Overall, on current projections, I think we will get 10-12cm on Saturday and the snow will stop late afternoon, so again, it will be slow coming up the hill unless you leave it till after 9pm (at a guess). Sunday will start with sunny periods followed by snow showers in the afternoon. If you are arriving over the weekend then bring your winter thermals, its going to be cold, very cold.
