Recommended Posts

Summary

Conditions have not been that bad over the Alps over the past week, with some milder weather over the weekend, however it has turned colder over the past couple of days with some further heavy snow in places.

Synoptics

Currently there is High Pressure centered just to the north of the Alps. with a mild Tropical Maritime airmass on SW winds edging in for NW Europe and this turning things milder for the western alps, but still a very cold easterly flow over the Eastern Alps.

Over the weekend the high Pressure moves steadily North and Eastwards, allowing the milder air to edge across all part of the Alps by the end of Sunday.

For the start of Next week, general High pressure remains over the Alps, so staying dry and mostly mild.

By midweek and towards the end of the week, High Pressure builds in from the north with very cold air edging in from the west, this is especially true for Eastern parts of the Alps, but it may move further west by Friday, some uncertainty on this.

Precipitation

A very dry week across the Alps generally, the only notable precipitation is forecast Tuesday into Wednesday as a cold front edges down from the north east into S Germany and Austria. So some patchy precipitation for Germany Tuesday night pushing into Austria where it will continue for much of Wednesday with snow above about 1000m or so.

Precipitation to Tuesday 6pm largely nil

but a bit over Eastern areas over the following days.

Summary

A mild to very mild week for western areas, a but more mixed further east, with some colder spells at times. Mostly dry with a good deal of sunshine , so take your sunscreen. A good week to be on the slopes, but expect spring snow conditions and again the warm weather means that the avalanche risk is set to remain high especially off piste.
