Alps Ski And Weather Forecast 10th February




The deep freeze has been controlling the weather over the continent and the Alps for some time, however there are signs of it turning a little bit less cold and perhaps milder by the end of next week.

Generally conditions are good, both in terms of the snow and sunshine, however it will be very cold to at least start the week.[/font][/size]


[size=3][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif][b]Synoptic Summary[/b]

Currently the Siberian High continues to dominate the weather in Europe, with very cold conditions generally, with only really the Iberian peninsula, parts of the UK and to an extent Northern Scandinavia missing out on the very cold conditions.

Over the weekend there are signs of the high pressure finally retreating back east, however staying very cold over most of Europe and turning colder even over parts of Spain, and Northern Scandinavia, the UK remains milder as a mini HP cell bring tropical maritime air from the south west.

For the mid of next week, a NW flow tries to push in over the UK, with a trough also pushing in through Scandinavia, cold over most of Europe, only the far west inc parts of the Uk missing out. Possibly turning a little milder over the UK from the north, As tropical maritime air feeds in around the HP.

Towards the end of the week, this milder air over the UK, may start to feed in over the continent, including the Alps, lessening the bitterly cold spell.
