down to -4 ° C in the department

Temperatures have dropped sharply this week in the department and particularly during the night from Friday to Saturday. If the Ambérieu-en-Bugey weather station read -2.7 ° C on Thursday, the thermometer dropped to -4 ° C on Saturday, January 9. Which makes this the coldest morning of the week. The Météonews specialists, however, relativize: “There is no excess cold, it is a classic winter period”.

It always snows in height

The weather should change early this weekend with a maritime air mass “clearing” the sky. “Clouds are expected this Saturday afternoon in Ain, around the Saone valley. On Sunday, the mist and icy fog will still be there very early in the morning. Temperatures could drop further: down to -8 ° C in Échallon en Haut-Bugey, for example.

“In the middle of next week, the weather will change from Tuesday there will always be snow,” announces Météonews. Not in the plains and rather in height. Thursday and Friday, it could make its appearance at low altitude. In general cold and calm climate.
