Stau effect will dump large amounts of snow in northern Alps later this week

The upcoming Arctic blast will bring persistent stau-effect snowfall across the northern Alps in the coming days. Large amounts of snow, locally over 50-100 cm of snow at higher elevations, bu expect snow also at low elevations.

As the upcoming Arctic outbreak spreads southward and meridional flow establishes, northerly winds will produce persistent stau-effect snowfall across the northern flanks and slopes of the Alps. Snowfall will push from initially about 400-600 m elevation all the way to the lowest elevation. Expect the snowfall to persist until the end of the week.
