As I emerged from the duvet it was just snowing in Tignes, but you didn’t have to drop far to find rain. Luckily for us we missed most of the precipitation as it passed a bit further north. There were a few sunny periods in the early afternoon demonstrated in the picture of The Grande Sassiere. I did pop out to the Aeroclub Barbie but they had cancelled too early (should get a decent forecast!!). The thaw continues and a warm wind has transformed the snow off piste, I expect it will have a hard crust in the morning. The pistes were soft.
Tomorrow will be windy, snowy down to 1800m and very cloudy. We may see the sun for a few minutes towards lift closing. The temperature will also drop 3 or 4 degrees so with the wind another layer would be in order. As the wind will pick up tonight expect a progressive opening as the pisteurs work their magic. I expect the high lifts to be closed. Monday will be windy and sunny periods and snow showers down to 1400m will come and go all day, again another couple of degrees cooler. Tuesday looks similar to Monday, another couple of degrees cooler and snow showers down to Bourg. Currently, Wednesday looks like the best day of the week, warmer, sunny and less wind; fluffy clouds will build up in the afternoon. Beyond that it appears to be quite unsettled.
For the fliers tomorrow, there is a chance of fog at nearly all the UK airports. Somewhere will cop for it, but, as ever, its a lottery as to where as fog is so fickle. So there may be some delays. Over here it looks OK for flying but there is a strong chance of getting wet as you head for the buses.
