Aug 2016

Dry to finish the week and across the weekend. Warming up next week but snow arrives on Wednesday.

A high pressure system brings three days of light winds to the alps. Bright sunshine will be replaced by thick, high cloud (from a sliding front), before sunny breaks return on Sunday.

The high is to our east from Monday, letting it warm up. Another cold front slides by so any rain would total less than 5mm. Winds strengthen on Tuesday, ahead of a stronger front passing through on Wednesday morning, then a trough on Wednesday night. Rain falls late Tuesday into Wednesday (~10mm), then we have snow from Wednesday morning through to Thursday afternoon (10 to 20 cm).

Another front should arrive later on Friday, with no warm up beforehand, and snow falls from Friday afternoon through Saturday.
