WEDNESDAY APRIL 17 TO MONDAY APRIL 22, 2024

GENERAL SITUATION AND EVOLUTION

Following the passage of a cold front, a disturbed NW to N flow, fairly strong aloft, between the Atlantic anticyclone [ 1036 hpa ] off the WSW coast of Ireland, extended by a ridge of high pressure 1020 to the N of the Pyrenees, and a deep trough of polar air from the N of Scandinavia to the S of Italy [ 999 ] and the Peloponnese [ minimum “Gori” 999 ]. – Tightened wind gradient between Savoy and Piedmont, the moist polar air thus propelled was partly blocked against the N slopes of the Alpine arc, where the pressure field changed little [ Chamonix, 1013 – Sion, 1011 – Innsbruck, 1007 ]. – As this gradient eases, sleet will become less frequent by Thursday evening. – A nice, cold break on Friday morning…
