Re: Weather!

Spring has sprung in the NE/VD Jura- warm, sunny, big blue skies - and at our level, nearly all the snow gone? Is winter really over, or will it come back big time all of a sudden? Just put the washing out to dry in the garden.

Re: Weather!

Sunday I got up bright and early planning to head up to La Dole for some skiing. Got all dressed up and popped outside for a coffee.. Where I noticed the thermometer reading 15.8 degrees..

Went back inside and didn't bother.. I heard from others that it was very slushy!

Well, I don't know about big time but the forecast for me tomorrow is getting more windy (gales), temps dropping, rain, sleet, snow overnight. Temps around zero for the rest of the week, getting up to maybe 5C at the weekend.

Yes, but what you described here is an autumn

Yeah, but we didn't have one of those this year either.

Re: Weather!

After a gorgeous Spring like day yesterday- the drive to GVA airport over the JUra was awful last night- driving rain all the way. 8C in GVA at 8pm- return was easier, a bit of drizzle in the plain and dry over the Jura- but even at 1000m the temp was 5C at 9.30pm.

Greyish, dampish, snow mostly gone today. Snowdrops all coming out. Is this it? At least we all had a good ski week last week in 4 Vallées.

Re: Weather!

GRRRRRR it's been raining all day up here and all the snow base has melted and now it is snowing heavily again and it will take ages for the base to build up again, if ever this season

Re: Weather!

Snow settling fast- even the bullfinches and bramblings turned up for food today- so prospects are for lots of snow- they know best. 2 inches in a couple of hours and still snowing fast- the great spotted woodpecker has turned up at the bird table too.

Re: Weather!

Been snowing here for the last hour or so. Not quite laying yet, though the tree branches are getting white. Not forecast for us at all again so hopefully the "powers that be" are keeping a weather eye out - unlike the last time!

Re: Weather!

Sleet started at around 1300 and is now turning into snow (although not settling).

Re: Weather!

Snowing here too! Not sticking though.
Only yesterday we had a walk, admiring the primroses and snowdrops!

Re: Weather!

It even snowed a bit here, but melted upon landing. We'll see what the morning brings...

In Geneva, it's just the Bise, the bitterly cold wind... send us some snow from Jura, Odile!
