Afternoon all,

It has been a poor start to the year here in SW France, normally by March the sun puts in more than a fleeting visit, but nothing this year, luckily over the next day or so some warmer sunny weather is due to put in an appearance, but still the threat of cool April showers almost every day, and a fair amount of hail in them too..

Roll on the summer :-)

Cheers

FC

Some great weather over the last week here.

It’s been a late spring and the winter was the dullest since I moved to France.

Is there much snow left on the Pyrenees? I was there early May last year and there was still quite a bit.

Yes there’s still quite a bit as although it’s been warm it’s been mainly dry .

It’s been a much better skiing season than for many years although the resorts are now closed for the season .

Its always a bit sad when the snow starts disappearing, roll on November. :)

Yes, it's been good indeed! The first snow was in September which I was surprised to see (I went back to the East Pyrenees in September).

Yes the best for many years . I’ve been to the eastern side a few times , most recent on the way to Barcelona as it’s quicker to go that route.

Really warming up here now , I’ve brought my shorts out at last! :)

The strange spring weather continues .

After a lovely warm spell that’s changed and  there’s been some fresh snow in the Pyrenees and I had to put the heating back on!

Wow, there has been some interesting weather in southern France with quite substantial snow falls over the Massif - some nice pictures - then further down on lower ground heavy rain.
