European Short and Extended Range Outlook
January o8, 2018

(Please email chris@snowforecast.com and let me know what you would like to see in this discussion)

This forecast primarily covers the Alps (France, Italy, Switzerland, Austria)

Today (Tuesday 8th) through Friday (12th)- A closed low-pressure system moving slowly through today and more meandering low pressure systems are expected to drop frequent snowfalls through this week in a busy weather pattern.

On through mid to late January 2018 - An unsettled and "stormy" pattern becomes more set and large scale (larger aerial coverage and stronger storms), with more frequent and significant snowfalls expected. This outlook is on track from previous outlook updates. This new pattern looks like it will deliver more moist storms from off the Atlantic. We expect great conditions! CM
