CHAMONIX VALLEY AND MONT-BLANC AREA WEATHER FORECAST

From http://chamonix-meteo.com

ISSUED AT 08:45 SUNDAY JANUARY 24

GENERAL SYNOPSIS

Still a low pressure area well supplied with polar air, whirling around a 997 hpa minimum lying between Scotland and Norway, driving several satellite minima across Europe, embedded in a powerful westerly stream, the whole being drifting slowly east. • Some break in the bad however this Sunday, until the next satellite which is expected to crossing over the Alps from northwest overnight and to shaping a new snowy spell above 500 m, then to triggering some more scattered snow showers by Monday. • High pressure push from southwest might allow for improvement, Monday evening until Wednesday evening, in a still unseasonably cold and windy atmosphere. • Very unsettled Westerlies expected to resuming as soon as Thursday, yet milder.
