Latest snow forecast

Updated: 7pm Friday 26 January 2018

The south-western Alps saw some snow today, but it will clear tomorrow to leave all areas with several days of mostly fine and quite mild weather.

 

 This settled spell will last until the middle of next week, at which point a new storm will arrive from the north-west. It is, however, too early to say how potent the new storm will be, or which side of the Alps it will favour most.
