Jane Bunn - Snow Forecast

Sun 10:00am 24 Sep

JANE'S SNOW FORECAST DISCUSSION 

A strong cold front has made it marginally cooler for Sunday. The snow level should be around 1800 metres, then an injection of cold air lets it drop to 1500 metres for Monday. We have showers tending to persistent precipitation, and can expect up to 15 cm above 1800 metres (Sunday and Monday), and up to 5 cm for the lower slopes (Monday)

Its turns dry early on Tuesday as the next high moves through. 

We're warm again on Wednesday ahead of a front sliding through leaving it marginally cool on Thursday. But there is limited precipitation: the chance of showers (mainly later Wednesday) - most will stay dry - and the rain system that was once on the models is no more :)  

The next front arrives early next Saturday, followed by a second surge later in the day - but the majority of the precipitation will fall to the south. There is the chance of showers on Friday and Saturday, most likely on Friday night. They fall as snow above about 1700 metres. 

The next high moves in next Sunday. 

Sunday - Showers tending to persistent precipitation, falling as snow above 1800 metres. Breezy to strong winds. 

Monday - Showers tending to persistent precipitation, falling as snow above 1500 metres. Moderate winds. 

Tuesday - Snow clearing before dawn. Dry with lots of sunshine and light winds. 

Wednesday - Warm. The chance of showers, most stay dry. Breezy winds. 

Thursday - The chance of showers, most stay dry. Moderate winds.

Every weather system that pushes across the alps and brings us snow has three main variables: moisture, energy and temperature. Let's see how these look this year.
