Mt Blanc Valley Weather - 3 Day Forecast

Weak and tiny high ridge (1015hpa) still extending along the Alpine Range this Wednesday morning. Spread low area, Norwegian Sea to Portugal, shapes a moderate southwesterly stream high up over France, somewhat unstable. There is a cold front waving in that stream, that causes a thundery disturbance over Western France. It is on a trend towards deactivating while approaching the Alps, although keeping some risk of thundery shower over the Massif towards the middle of the afternoon, then again towards the latter part of the night. Thundery deterioration likely to becoming more pronounced, Thursday to Saturday, depending on the entrance of an altitude cold cut‑off over France from the Bay of Biscaye. Beginning of a scorching heat spell expected on Sunday.
