General low pressure covering Greenland and all the way across to Scandinavia, with deep low pressure off the east co[/font][/size][size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]ast of Iceland. Low Pressure for the north of the UK and westwards. However a big block of High pressure covering Russia, Eastern Scandinavia, all of mainland Europe, southern UK and right down to the Azores. Largely mild over most of Europe bar Russia, Northern Scandinavia, Iceland and briefly Northern parts of the UK.[/font][/size]

[size=3]Last week you may recall, that I mentioned the possibility of cold weather around now unfortunately the colder weather did not make it far enough south. It is also worth remembering that towards the end of a 7 day forecast, the accuracy levels do tend to fall as time goes on. [/size]

From early hours, some moderate showers developing for SW Switzerland, Snow Level around 1200m. This precipitation developing more widely during the morning and into the afternoon for the Southern Alps, much of Western Italy and for Southern Switzerland, SL around 1400-1700m, some showers also possible for NW Switzerland, SL around 2200m. Precipitation continuing during the evening and spreading into more central areas of Italy, SL remaining mostly similar.

[b]Fri 2nd Dec[/b]
Precipitation continuing overnight into Friday morning however becoming restricted to Southern Switzerland, Western Italy and the Southern alps, Trois Valleys area of France, SL 1600m+.

This continuing through the day and into the evening for the areas mentioned above, snow levels around 1800-2000m, this is 7 days away and as such detail is very uncertain, but 20cm of snow cannot be ruled out for higher slopes, probably highest on the French Italian border.

There is considerable disagreement between the GFS on which most of the above is based, and the ECM, from around T+120 onwards and into the longer term. ECM goes for the possibility of a decent polar Maritime outbreak from the NW from around next Friday onwards, clearly time will tell which is correct and I will update on this during the week.[/font][/size]
