Updated: Jan 16

Update 8.30am:

The models are suggesting some snowfall returning from Tuesday. At the moment, there are some differences between the GFS and ECMWF scenarios, so there are also some noticeable differences between the automated websites and apps in terms of the potential for some milder air to arrive. We'll take a closer look at this tomorrow, however, significant snowfall is a possibility.



Update 7.15am:

Bonjour from Chatel. Temperatures have dipped below -13c in the valley this morning and it's -8.5c in the village at the moment.


Updates will again be mostly on the WhatApp group today...
