High pressure is still dominating the weather in the Alps and will continue to do so until early next week, meaning that it will mostly dry, quite sunny and relatively warm right across the Alps both this weekend and on Monday.

 

On Tuesday, the first signs of a change in the weather will become apparent later in the day with more in the way of cloud, especially in the northern Alps where there may also be a few showers (snow 1700m).

 

From mid-week onwards the weather then looks very interesting as an arctic storm is set to move in from the north-west. The difficulty for forecasters though is assessing what exact track this storm will take.

 

If the storms takes a more westerly track than expected, the southern and western Alps will be most favoured. However, if the storm moves more towards the east than expected, the eastern Swiss and Austrian Alps will be more favoured. Watch this space…
