11/12/2020: Today's Updates...

Update 3.30pm:

There has been 1.5cm to 2cm in the village area, however, the snow rain limit has risen now with the snow petering out as the expected, slightly milder interlude has arrived. The main event in terms of snowfall is still set to arrive overnight with snow expected tomorrow.

Update 12.15pm:

The first snow flakes have arrived in the last half hour or so, as the weather closes in...

Update 8.15am:

Snow is expected to arrive towards lunchtime today, with showery outbreaks for the afternoon and evening, with drier spells too, before some heavier precipitation potentially arrives overnight, with further snowfalls tomorrow. Snow/rain limits look like rising to somewhere close to the village elevation today (perhaps above the village for a time) and are expected to be sat at about 1000m tomorrow (+/- 200m).

Below are 5 charts from the Arome model, via the excellent www.meteociel.fr website, which shows its prediction for how accumulations will develop up to 1am on Sunday...

Updates to follow during the day.

Update 7.15am:

Bonjour from Chatel... it is another cold start to the morning with temperatures dipping to below -7c in the valley and the snow making operation continues across the ski area, however, some natural snowfall is expected to arrive today and tonight.

Update to follow with a look at potential quantities from this next snow event...
