Weather

What a change from yesterday; the rain has ravaged the snow on the ground and if you don't get wet feet walking around town this morning, it'll be an absolute miracle. Temperatues are still very much in the positive, with maximums of 6°C at 2000m and 2°C at 3000m today, so this sludge isn't going anywhere fast. The snow line this morning is between 2300m and 2500m, above which, a fair amount of snow should fall. By the evening, temperautures will have cooled a little at altitude and it should be snowing down to 2100m, which of course still won't include Val village, which is down at 1850m. Wind from the North West has picked up since yesterday and will be pretty gustty with maximum speeds of 60km/h at the Italian boarder.

Also drivers, you might not need to worry about snow tyres, but please take it easy, as a vast amount of spray is produced as you drive by.
