Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

The All New 20/21 Weather Outlook Thread

Looking back at the season to March....given background of moderate La Nina which peaked Nov-Dec.

Zonal winds crashed in January, with the AO also weak up to mid Feb.

High pressure over Greenland / Arctic (-AO), with low presure over NW europe. No sign of an Atlantic ridge anomaly so similar to 2010 for europe but not as strong. This year the deepest anomlalies were over the Alaskan side of the arctic ridge.

Temperatures were mostly above the 1981-2010 average, with France the only neutral spot across mid-latitudes

Sep to Mar, closer look at the pressure anomalies for Europe

Dec to Mar similar pattern with stronger low anomaly pushing further east

January much whooping

February dreadful, just sunny and dry.

March doesn't show the good NW'ly blast around the 10th as the rest was dry, colder in the east

So an above average season for most parts, especially Swiss, and northern French alps.....imagine northern Italy and most of Austria also did well?

And it continues to look snowy and well below average to mid April

Locked in now on two systems, making a south-north sandwich

Sunday from the south

Monday from the north

This link for the Rhone Alps area shows Genoa should see the heaviest precipitation, 200mm possible.
7 models to flick thru out to next Wednesday.
