It is about a “non exceptional episode, but sufficiently notable to cause disturbances, in particular for the circulation in medium / low mountain, even in valleys as regards the Alpine Massif”, comments Météo-France

“New snowfalls are expected in the evening of Saturday and in the night of Saturday to Sunday on all the massifs. The falls intensify first on the north of the Massif Central, from the Creuse to the Puy de Dôme, above 500 m, then on the Pyrenees, above 600 to 700 m and finally over the Alps and the Jura at the end of the night, from 300 to 400 m. “

Precipitation is forecast to last until Monday, with decreasing intensity.
