(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)

Friday (1st) -LOW PRESSURE + snow + cold... Low pressure is dominant over the Alps region, with snow and cold expected for all areas. By Friday night the system is dropping south into Italy, with snow favoring Austria and Italy plus southern Switzerland, and increasingly fair weather expected across France and Switzerland (north), Germany as well.

Saturday and Sunday (2nd-3rd), through next Wednesday (6th) - High pressure ridging aloft builds in, with fair weather and mostly sunny skies. This pattern holds through next Wednesday.

LONGER RANGE OUTLOOK

Thursday through Saturday (7th-9th), through next Wednesday - Strong low pressure moves through with more cold air and expected snowfall, some significant.

Sunday through mid-December (10th-xx) - Low pressure systems and snow continue, with some stronger storms and bigger snowfalls expected as this pattern becomes more dominant. CM
