TUESDAY APRIL 9 TO SUNDAY APRIL 14, 2024

GENERAL SITUATION AND EVOLUTION

High 1032 hpa off Vigo associated with a ridge of high pressure of Saharan origin, expected from the Bay of Biscay to Germany on Wednesday. – Simultaneously, low-pressure system 998 over the Norwegian Sea, moving away towards the Arctic as it fills in, and satellite minimum 995 to the N of London within a trough extending to the S of the Pyrenees, this other (opposite) set also moving away NE. – The associated cold front affects the Alpine arc, where pressures [ Chamonix, 1017 – Sion, 1014 – Innsbruck, 1012 ] start to rise from the W. As a result, there will be almost continuous precipitation until next night, when the rain-snow limit could temporarily drop to around 1100-1200 m. – The weather will begin to improve on Wednesday, before four days of fine weather are very likely from Thursday to Sunday.

FRIDAY: moderate breezes, ensuring fairly sunny weather, just cool in the morning and barely warm in the afternoon.

SATURDAY: fine weather – cool in the early morning – warm in the afternoon

SUNDAY: uncertain – fine weather likely to continue, convection more marked than on the previous two days, forcing the development of cumulus clouds over the mountain ranges.
