• The Chatel Snow Report

19/02/2020: Today's Updates... Day 70...


There have been some useful cm's falling today, with the village seeing a max depth of 6cm of fresh snow for a time, before some slightly milder air has started a bit of a thaw of lying snow at 1200m. Higher up, about double that has fallen, bringing some fun conditions, despite the generally poor visibility. There have been further, mostly light snow showers this afternoon and these may continue into the evening, with perhaps another dusting in the village, as temperatures ease back down again.

Although it is great to see, this was another non-significant snowfall, in what is turning into a really very mild winter and the covering for the village is expected to be a transient one.

Over the coming days, there should be some lovely sunshine to enjoy, however, temperatures could become very mild again during the daytime periods from Saturday to Tuesday.
