[b]Summary[/b]

A very topsy turvy week in the Alps, as forecast there was heavy snow in parts of the Alps around the last weekend and the start of last week to quite low levels, however much milder conditions has meant that most of this snow has thawed, with conditions now very similar to that of last week.

Mild conditions seem quite likely for next week, so a further thaw seems likely, so good weather for skiing, even if the snow is likely to turn slushy in the afternoon and again suntan lotion is a must.

[b]Synoptic Summary[/b]

Saturday sees High Pressure centred over the UK, and this covers the Alps so mostly settled conditions, although a few showers over the weekend.

By Monday not much changes with high Pressure till very much in control but it has edged further east, still setted conditions over the Alps and mostly mild.

By midweek the High pressure edges slightly further west again, but still mostly settled over the Alps.

By the end of the week, High pressure edges slightly further west again, with the possibility of colder air for eastern parts of the Alps.
