Alps Ski And Weather Forecast 18th February




[size=4][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Further fresh snowfall means that there are great conditions across the Alps at the moment, and the persistent cold weather over the past few months has meant some impressive snow depths on most slopes.

There are signs of some milder weather over the next few week or so, which will be discussed in more detail below.[/font][/size]

[b]Synoptic Summary[/b]

[size=4][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]Currently quite mild over most of Western Continental Europe with Westerly winds, the Siberian High still keeping it cold for the far east of Europe and NE Scandinavia, turning briefly colder over the UK with North Westerly winds bringing a Polar Maritime airflow.

Staying cold over the UK Sunday, and the NW winds pushing deeper into Europe, bringing colder conditions over most of Western and Central Europe.

A South Westerly flow becoming established over the UK and Western Europe for the start of next week[/font][/size], [size=4][font=arial,helvetica,sans-serif]bringing much milder conditions to much of Western Europe[/font][/size]
