Is there snow on the way??

Where has snow?

The Three Valleys is one of the most snow sure ski resorts in the world and currently has the largest number of linked pistes open in Europe. Conditions are set to improve in the New Year with the coming snow.

Here is the science bit..

Wetter 26122015

This graph is the latest ensemble weather forecast for our area. For those unfamiliar with ensemble forecasts, all the colourful zig-zags on the chart represent different forecasts from various local sources. These forecast are normally used for airmen and are for an altitude expressed by 850hPa (roughly approximate to the height of La Tania).

The lines you need to focus on are:
-The thick red and white in the middle of the chart - red being the average temperature over the last 30 years and white being the average temperature of all the forecasts sampled over the coming days.
-The thick white line near the bottom of the chart which is the average precipitation forecast from the samples.

So reading this graph, there is a high likelihood of snow on the 29th December followed by a sustained period of snow fall from the 1st onward.
