Bonjour from Chatel.
Air temperatures have remained just above 0c in the village and valley overnight, though there has been some refreezing of the snowpack under the clear skies.
No snowfall is expected in the next 7 days and this may extend to 10 days.
Today is looking like being another beautiful spring-like day...
