04/11/2019: Today's Updates... 7.00pm...


The chance of snow tonight below 1800m has diminished with the latest model runs suggesting the 0C isotherm staying above 2100m during the period of precipitation.


A look at today's models still shows a cooling trend this week, though there are some noticeable differences regarding the height of the 0C isotherm tomorrow - however, this is fairly irrelevant as there does not look like being much in the way of precipitation.

There should be a bit of snow on parts of the ski area overnight, settling down to 1600m or perhaps a touch lower, with some wet blobs possible in the village.

Thereafter, the rest of the week looks chilly, with the potential for snow showers and perhaps a longer spell of snow at some stage, however, there has been a bit of a step away from some of the snowier scenarios that were looking possible. Still plenty of time for that to change with low pressure likely to dominate again during the second half of the week and into next weekend, so there remains a chance that we could get lucky.

Here is the Arome models' view on total snow accumulations from 8am this morning up to tomorrow eve from the excellent meteociel.fr website.

Next update early tomorrow.


A trip up to Mouet and Croix this morning found a thin and patchy layer of wet snow above 1700m. At this point it was mostly dry, but since then the precipitation has returned and the the snow/rain limit looks somewhere around 2000m.

Next update this evening with a look at the forecast...


The snow line has come down a little overnight to about 1650m, though it is expected to rise today... a further update will be posted during the day... photo 7.10am...
