More snow for the AlpsPosted Sat, 09 Jan 2016 15:15:43
Snow conditions in the Alps have been much improved in recent days with heavy falls of snow finally arriving. The snow drought is over but in the last couple of days the freezing level has lifted and rain has been falling at lower altitudes.
During the next couple of days further heavy snow is expected but the air over the Alps will still be relatively mild so there is a risk of rain at low levels. The precipitation type forecast chart below is for Monday 11th January, 09:00GMT.
Through the middle of next week freezing levels are set to fall. The colder weather and prospect of more snow means conditions on lower slopes should improve.
The precipitation type forecast chart below is for Thursday 14th January, 12:00GMT. A lot of snow is being shown but at this range forecast details can change very significantly.
Unfortunately some of the computer models are forecasting high pressure to build again over central Europe. This would bring back drier and probably milder conditions.
In the next week more snow is on the way along with colder air. Beyond this there are suggestions of high pressure building over central Europe leading to drier and milder conditions in the Alps.
