21/02/2021: Today's Updates...
Bonjour from Chatel.
Spring sunshine is expected again here in Chatel today and it should feel a bit like summer in the village this afternoon. Current temperatures are close to, or just above 0c in the village, with a touch of grass frost and the valley dipped below -2.5c overnight, due to the temperature inversion.
High pressure is set to dominate the weather pattern for the next week, with no snowfall in prospect during the rest of this month. The settled spell could easily last well into the first week of March...
