After a number of very mild days in the Alps with rain in some skiing villages and thawing conditions, the temperature will drop over the next few days. In addition, snow is on the way. For the time being, the weather is quite changeable, but there are also moments with sunshine. The ski resorts closer to the Netherlands can also count on some fresh snow next week, after a heavy thaw. It is also still winter in Scandinavia.

Today the weather is quite calm in the Alps with very mild temperatures for this time of year. The weather pattern shows a mix of sun and cloudy skies and until the evening it will remain dry with the best chance for sun is in the French Alps. This evening, from the northwest, clouds will gradually increase, and precipitation will fall. The snowline will be between 900 and 1500 meters, with the greatest amounts of snow on the northern side of the Alps. On Monday the snow jackpot falls in the Alps, and up to Tuesday half a meter of fresh snow could locally fall in total higher up in the mountains.

The coming days will be rather unstable in the Alps with, especially at the beginning of the new week with the most snowfall on Monday. The chance of avalanches will then increase as well. Currently, on the way to the Alps it is necessary to take delay into account because of the severe winds in the Netherlands and Germany.

Snow in Sauerland after thawing conditions

In Winterberg, the ski lifts are open, but due to the heavy thaw of the past days, the slopes are currently maintained with artificial snow. The wintersportconditions are occasionally difficult, but for the snow lovers there is better news on the way. Next week, the snowline goes down and there will be a little bit of fresh snow, especially higher up in the Sauerland. On the highest points, around 15 centimeters of snow can fall until Tuesday. However, it can be very windy during snowfall.  In the village Winterberg, the snow amounts are limited to a few centimeters. Fortunately, it freezes during the nights, so the snow quality remains good. From Wednesday on, conditions seem to improve.
