Weather

It's been a beautiful but very cool start to the day, although conditions are going to warm up a fair bit, as we are due sunshine for nearly all of the day. The only clouds to mar a perfect blue sky will be thin high altitude ones. The wind had turned to a Southerly direction, and remains moderate, with 50km/h gusts of foehn/lombarde near the Italian boarder, arriving late in the afternoon. This will get even stronger overnight. Maximum temperatures are due to get up to 1 to +4°C at 2000m and -1°C at 3000m. Make the most of the sunny weather, as tomorrow, the snow returns.
