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

Update 12.50pm:

Snow has been falling all morning, with drier weather arriving recently. The snow/rain limit has not been too far below the village, so the falling snow has been very wet, with a slushy 5cm of fresh snow on some surfaces - but the existing snow cover is all a bit wet at the moment. We should see some chillier air - and a lower snow/rain limit tonight. Slightly higher up on the ski area, the snow should have accumulating nicely all morning...


Update 8.35am:

Snow is falling here in Chatel - it is fairly heavy at times, but quite wet snow at the moment...


Updates to follow during the day...




Update 7.30am:

Bonjour from Chatel... the village has been close to, or on the wrong side of the snow/rain limit overnight, however, there is wet snow and sleet currently falling with a very wet additional couple of cm's on some surfaces. However, although we currently appear to be behind the curve in terms of the expected accumulations by 7am this morning, the forecast is still very promising.


In other news, it appears possible that the ski area will be allowed to open from the 7th January 2021, as long as though there is no deterioration in the covid situation.


Below are the latest 3 charts from the Arome model, via the excellent www.meteociel.fr website, showing the possible evolution of today's snowfall...
