5:00am Wednesday 17 September 2014

Conditions Summary:
Another 2 to 12mm of rain across the Alps last night, and no freeze. It will be soft and slushy. Thankfully some colder air is washing in now.

Synoptic Outlook:
A pair of lows east and south-east of the Alps merge today and together they pull a few snow showers across the Alps from the west. A few insignificant flurries might hold on through Thursday and Friday as the winds tend south-west, but a high will move in by the weekend to bring fine weather.

This could quite possibly be the last notable touch up of fresh snow and cold weather we see before closing day. Several cooler days are going to give the groomers the opportunity to have things looking good for the weekend. If you’re thinking of one last trip I would book today.

Wednesday 17 September:
A westerly change with a few snow showers.

Thursday 18 September:
South-westerlies and occasional flurries.

Friday 19 September:
South-westerlies with occasional flurries.

Saturday 20 September:
Mostly fine.

Extended Outlook:
Next week is going to be a lot warmer and we’ll start to lose snow more quickly. Seriously, if you are thinking of another trip don’t mess around. Go this weekend.
