Good morning from Naeba.

It's an overcast start today, with some light snow falling. There is a moderate wind gusting through, but due to the warm air temperature it doesn't feel particularly chilly. We are definitely beginning to press on into Spring! The pistes are grainy at the moment, due to the warm weather that we have had recently. The wind will continue to build throughout the day, with gusts of up to 40kmph at the base this evening. The air temperature is expected to continue to rise to highs of 9°C overnight tonight, and precipitation will increase in intensity throughout today, culminating in heavy rain overnight tonight.

Looking forwards, the wind will drop first thing tomorrow, alongside the air temperature, allowing the rain to change to snow. Accumulations are predicted to be modest, with around 7cm at the base. Temperatures will remain below 0°C throughout Saturday, and there will continue to be light snowfall. On Sunday, we can expect the sun to be back, and air temperatures will rise to be comfortably above 0°C through until at least Tuesday. We can expect a mix of sun and cloud throughout this period, and there will be little wind.
