Calling Experts in Wiggly Line Weather Forecast Graphs

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Has anyone had sight of any of the bewildering (for me at least wink...) wiggly line weather graphs and charts for the Alps for the next few weeks?

We're off to Tignes glacier first weekend in November (2-3 days on the slopes, maybe some walking...) and are wondering if the onset of winter is perhaps imminent Puzzled - or whether a decent snowfall at altitude could be in the offing.

Regardless, we'll still enjoy ourselves and will just ski whatever conditions at the time. It would be good if they got Double M back to the village open by then though Very Happy (which isn't unheard of first week in November...).

The wigglies say “above average temperatures for the next week or so and dry too”. Generally good agreement between the runs so a reasonable probability it’ll happen. After that it gets a bit more unsettled. Some precipitation possible after say the 18th, temps dropping but still above average. If you take the average run out at the very end of the run it shows roughly 5min Deg night time temp at 1500m and 10max during the day. Would relate to freezing levels varying from 3000 to 2250 or so, bottom of doubleM is 2100(?).

its obviously too far off to be in any way accurate, but that’s what the wig lies currently say.

I believe the correct technical term is 'ensembles'.

As in 'an ensemble of wigglies'

Personally, I find the national weather services the best source of forecasts. For France this would be MetéoFrance:

http://www.meteofrance.com/previsions-meteo-montagne/tignes/73320

You'll see that they also do snow info and bulletins etc but these don't start 'till November. Obviously, the resort website will also be a useful source of information as well. Generally, most of the other forecast sites are simply an intermediary and just re-present the same base data. MetéoFrance also has a reasonably good phone app.

Whilst we're at it, could someone post a link to gfs ensembles, please? The one I used to use doesn't work any more. Thanks. (And yes, I know this is a dim question... Embarassed )
