  1. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-edinburgh-east-fife-49277556?intlink_from_url=https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/science_and_environment&link_location=live-reporting-story something needs to be done fast. At least the infrastructure would already be in place but I can’t see it happening anytime soon
  2. Torrential rain in York this morning, a lot of surface flooding on the roads. Eased off now though
  3. Hopefully York catches one. Been ages since we’ve had a good one!
  4. https://eu.usatoday.com/story/news/world/2018/03/13/swiss-found-way-save-their-glacier-melting-wrap-blanket/421142002/ obviously a very expensive method. But would this be beneficial to those areas where permafrost is in danger of melting and releasing the trapped methane?
  5. The northern alps continue to get battered with snow and are forecast to continue to. Meanwhile my destination in the south west alps haven’t had new snow since the 20th December and haven’t got any in the forecast for at least the next week. Frustrating. Maybe I should have chosen a different destination this year.
  6. The mid mountain temperatures of +8 on Wednesday must be a record for this time of year? Even in early April this would be above normal!
  7. What is the long range forecast looking like? I’m worried by the high temperatures forecast in San Sicario where I go during the second week in January. Is there any let up in sight? Thanks
  8. Anyone have an early season forecast for the alps? Pondering whether to book an early ski trip, although it’s probably best to wait and see!
  9. Well yet again York seems to be in the gap between the lines of showers to the north and south and has been most of the day. It’s strange that this always seems to happen, but at least the sun/wind will be helping to dry the ground after a very wet couple of weeks
  10. Are we expecting these showers to continue overnight? BBC didn’t showed it in the far north only, but with the new graphics you can’t be sure!
  11. Well the forecast doesn't make good reading, with temperatures getting up to +8 in obergurgl on Friday just before our arrival. Hopefully this changes as I imagine it will be a slush-fest, with the freezing level all the way up at 2800m. Always a risk going so late in the season, but I had hoped for better after choosing one of the highest resorts possible.
  12. Hello, I have just booked a late season holiday in obergurgl (Austria) going on the 2nd April. Does anyone have an extended forecast. Hopefully the cool air can linger on for a few more weeks to keep the snow in good condition.
  13. Higher pistes and snow park Kaprun_Glacier5.jpg Absolutely agree! And if your feeling particularly adventurous ski down from the top restaurant, (beneath Blessed Wheather's first picture). Very steep but rewarding!
  14. Thanks for the information guys... I do hope the wintery blast materialises the week before I'm due to arrive! Would set up the week nicely
  15. 11C tomorrow in St Anton where I am heading on the 29th is slightly worrying! Obviously at this time of year it's going to be warming up, but any sign of a slight cool down over next week?
