Yellow vigilance in the event of snow, ice or risk of avalanches is maintained in four departments in the east of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region on Wednesday November 29.

Winter is here in Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes and this is felt with the arrival of negative temperatures this week and snowfall on the peaks of the northern Alps, at altitudes sometimes quite low, the rain/snow limit being descended to 600 m on Tuesday. This Wednesday it will be a little higher, while further snowfall is expected late in the afternoon from 800 to 1000 m to the east of the region.

Due to the drop in temperatures and snowfall, four departments of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes are still placed on yellow alert for snow, ice or the risk of avalanche. Until midday, then in the evening, you will need to exercise caution this Wednesday if you have to travel on the roads of Ain, Savoie and Haute-Savoie.

Avalanche risk remains high

Also take precautions if you plan to go to the mountains and find out about snow conditions and the associated risks. In the middle of the week the risk of avalanches is very high in the northern Alps, which pushes Météo France to place Haute-Savoie, Savoie and Isère on yellow avalanche alert.

As on Tuesday, ten massive areas are at level 3 avalanche risk.

  • Level 3: Aravis, Beaufortain, Chablais, Mont-Blanc, Haute-Tarentaise, Vanoise, Maurienne, Haute-Maurienne, Belledonne, Grandes-Rousses, Oisans
  • Level 2 : Vercors, Chartreuse, Bauges
