The snow line is quickly retreating up the mountain, yet there were snow flurries in the valley Wednesday and flurries on the mountain Thursday.

At 2280 meters the temperature was -6, winds were 5-15 KPH from the SSE as of 06:00 Hrs.
At 1550 meters the temperature was -4, 75 % relative humidity and the barometer is on a slight decline.
In the valley it is -2. The long term forecast looks sunny for possibly a week!

Anyone for a snow shower: Japanese Snow Shower

Avalanches from the past:

Iran (1990)
A 7.7 scale earthquake causes avalanches that bury villages and take 50,000 lives.

Still cold in the alpine, things should change this week end.
