Mt Blanc Valley Weather - 3 Day Forecast

High 1033 Scandinavia, and 1020 northeast Alpine Range, reinforced by mild air altitude high ridge, Portugal to northeast of Scotland. Altitude cold cut‑off with center northwest close to Black Sea, fairly extended towards Northern Italy this Saturday, will be then drifting south while filling. Moderate north to northeast driven between both altitude systems is about to decreasing. It will allow for some more convection than yesterday, thus increasing afternoon isolated shower risk, then will get more stable on Sunday and Monday. Further outlook remains uncertain. Scandinavian High might be refocusing far south of Greenland by the middle of the week,leaving free space for altitude polar air income over British Isles; resulting successive cut‑offs might thereafter cross over France southward bound and shape very unstable weather over Western Alps until the end of the week.
