This morning’s weather in Tignes and Val D’Isere was very tempting, blue skies and sunshine but by 9am a thin layer of cloud covered the blue and it thickened quite quickly killing the light. By lunchtime it was damp in the villages and quite dark. At 4pm it started snowing lightly and we are now sat in cloud in Tignes. So I decided on a day of cleaning and cooking and drinking lemsip!
The snow will stop sometime in the early hours and as far tomorrow its anyone’s guess really. As Toyah sang:
It’s a mystery
The weather is a bit wishy washy and the various models are disagreeing, some have light snow in the morning, some have sun. So the best advice is to LOOTW (look out of the window)! It will be quite a few degrees cooler, so less dripping around the villages. There is more agreement about Tuesday, sunny periods, quite cool and a strong breeze building up in the afternoon and night. Wednesday currently looks sunny with a strong wind at altitude early on, some more work for the pisteurs. Thursday looks similar without the wind, but still cool for the time of year.
