Weather

A good 27cm of snow fell overnight, with a little less at the top of the hill. It's going to be a slightly changeable day, but by the afternoon, all precipitation should have cleared up, leaving just a thin layer of high altitude clouds. There has been a rapid change of temperature, which doesn't bode well for the stability of the snowpack. Maximim temperatures today will be +3°C at 2000m and -4°C at 3000m. The wind from the NW was pretty strong overnight and will remain mostly moderate but with some strong gusts of up to 60km/h. Tonight we're looking at a cold starry beginning of the night, before snowclouds return, but this time with only a little snow to drop on us.
