Latest snow forecast

Updated: 7.40pm Tuesday 16 January 2018

The weather in the Alps is going through another very unsettled spell, with the northern and western Alps in particular set to see a lot of snow at altitude over the next few days. By the end of the week there is likely to have been between 80cm and 180cm of new snow in the northern and especially north-western Alps (e.g. Chamonix, Flaine, Mürren, Engelberg and Lech).

 

However, as there will also be some milder air in the mix, some rain is also possible low down, especially early tonight and on Thursday.

 

Another important factor that skiers need to consider this week is the wind, which will be a major feature throughout the week just about everywhere. Expect plenty of disruption with lift closures, especially at high altitude.
