European Short and Extended Range Outlook
November 15, 2017

(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)

Through Thursday (16th) -HIGH PRESSURE ridging and milder... An upper-level ridge of high pressure moves in across the region with more sunshine and a mostly dry but brisk east wind flow across the mountains, due to a nearly stationary closed low pressure system that locates across Italy, mostly southern.

Friday (17th) - A weak low pressure system moves in from out of the north with limited moisture and a cold front expected. Some light snow showers are expected to all resort locations, but these could be termed mostly "flurries", with a mix of sunshine as well.

Saturday and Sunday (18th - 19th) - A couple of colder storms move in out of the north this weekend, but the area will only be slightly affected by snow flurries, otherwise any snow will be lighter and drier as these systems move through. The exception will be the eastern Alps, including Austria, where we may see some heavier snow totals and definitely colder air. France and the western Alps region will see more sunshine and less cold.

Monday through Wednesday (20th - 22nd) - Stronger high pressure ridging builds in across the entire Alps region, with warmer temperatures under mostly fair skies, and less wind.

LONGER RANGE OUTLOOK
Next Thursday and on through most of the rest of November (23rd-onward) Storm systems start moving in from out of the west primarily, a warmer source region, with more moisture laden snows likely on a regular basis, some heavy, but also with some snow level issues (wet snow or rain in some base areas). Afterward, last 2-3 days of November into early December we expect a ridge of high pressure to build in across the Alps with fair and warmer weather, plus some fresh snow on the ground to play in! CM
