It's dumping


By meteomorris on 27 November 2012 · 0

It's dumping. The Southern French Alps and Isere are getting hammered and snowlevels are dropping fast. Also the Aosta and Piemonte are getting white and it will continue to snow here all day.

Enough reasons for Meteosuisse to launch a weatheralarm. 100-140 cm of fresh powder is expected the next days above 1500 meters.

So when I recieved the calculations made by Lamma I couldn't believe my eyes. Up to tot 100 cm in 24 hrs.

This is what the webcams tell us.

Signs of wind, fohn and a thin cover. Cause when it dumps in the southwest, it's dry in the east.
