Re: Weather!

after a winterwonderland - today was wet and soggy, far too English for my liking- temps hovering just above 0C. Then snow, then sun, and more soggy...

Driving down to Neuchâtel for a Conference last night- the view of the Alps was just amazing, with the West sides bathed in orange sun.

Re: Weather!

Beautiful sun and snow day - and all local ski resorts are opened- La Robella, St Croix Les Rasses and Métabief Mtd'Or on French side. The drive to Yverdon this morning was glorious, with fab view of the Alps and the fogless NE/VD/FR plain - the Bas Valais and Leman Lake region under the sea of fog (mer de brouillard) - minus 10C at 1000m, and 4C in Yverdon at the spa.

Using he last of my massage/spa vouchers from our girls- feeling great.

Re: Weather!

Winterwonderland - perfect conditions for cross country skiing and all local resorts opened.

No idea how cold it was here last night - but it was minus 27C at La Brévine.

Later edit -it was minus 15 behind the house when I left at 11am, and minus 9C in the sunshine.

Re: Weather!

Sunny winterwonderland - with lots of new snow. Best news is that the days are getting longer in a very noticeable way. I look at the time the sun creeps over the mountain and it gets earlier every day

Re: Weather!

It was lightly snowing earlier in Zurich this morning but there were no clouds overhead? How does that work?

No, it was in the city and was too widespread, i.e. away from trees and out in the open.

Dandruff epidemic, maybe..?

Re: Weather!

I spotted that too when I was having a coffee on the balcony. My neighbour's shed roof was covered. Weird.

Re: Weather!

No snow during our 3 day stay in Valais/Wallis - arrived home to find 30cm of fresh snow on drive! Great conditions in all Jura ski resorts currently.

In the meantime, the UK is falling apart with a few cms predicted (and never mind the 'B' word!)

Re: Weather!

Just wondering if anyone else has noticed how wildly inaccurate the usual weather forecast sites have been lately?

It's been snowing here since 7am, yet meteoblue say snow will begin at @14.00, and last night, accuweather's next forcast for snow was Friday 8th Feb.

Re: Weather!

A winterwonderland- sunny and everything twinkly.

All xcountry pistes open, and all the Jura ski resorts have great conditions. Makes me sad for those who had to endure a grey, snowy week-end ...

Re: Weather!

Horrible - grey, very windy- and just stopped heavy rain- ruining all the wonderful snow. They had to cancel the TransJuranne xcountry ski marathon due to risks to participants in forested areas.

Re: Weather!

Wind so strong up on the Jura that we have been experiencing power cuts. Looking out now and it is snowing heavily. Really grim.
Snuggling up with a hot chocolate after lovely friends came around for lunch..
