Red sky at night, shepherd's delight. I don't know about the shepherds, but I'm delighted to at last be able to see the sky at night.

Re: Weather!

Depends on which forecast you use. Meteocentrale says maybe a bit of rain, but no snow.

No snow forecast for anywhere in Switzerland on MeteoSuisse either.

Not motivated to go outside? Keep calm and eat X-mas turkey.

Re: Weather!

Hello Odile,

Do you happen to know how the condition of Lac des Taillères is at present?It's been so warm that I worry skating might not be possible anymore when we go up tomorrow!

Quote:
So glad you enjoyed it Carlasmom- I hope to ski this winter, but my new knee wouldn't enjoy skating sadly.

When we were kids, my dad would drive over Lac des T, attach our sledges on long ropes- drive like the clappers and do hand-break turns- massive fun. For some strange reason it is not allowed any more

Weather definitely changing, the 'bise' (east wind) is up and although bright there is some cloud and I saw a few tiny slow flakes wizz by my bedroom window this morning. Friends coming over from London with kids are desperate to play in the snow- so fingers crossed.

Re: Weather!

Today was not half as warm as it has been of late, with some thin cloud.

So it seems ok- here is the webcam from today

Re: Weather!

Woke up to thick fog for the first time in months- a bit clearer now, but not sure if it will go or not- so do check webcam for Lac des Taillères, just in case.

Ooops, just looked and it looks lovely and sunny up there- hurrah - enjoy.

Update, sun is through up here too - gorgeous

Re: Weather!

Just checked the webcams for Adelboden and Jungfrau, pretty atrocious start to the ski season.
6'C at 2000m and only a smattering of runs open.

Somewhere in the world it will certainly snow tomorrow, it's not very likely that it will be here, though.

Re: Weather!

Did you go Carlasmom?

We left the sun to go and shop in Pontarlier where it was foggy, and by the time we got back it was all grey here too
