Weather. January 2021 marks the return of a really cold and snowy winter

New snow Tuesday and Wednesday

Therefore, the Jura will experience a warm episode at the beginning and in the middle of the week. Snow is expected everywhere on Tuesday and Wednesday. In fact, temperatures will rise before falling again.

“We expect a layer of 5 to 10 centimeters in the first plateaus,” says François Jobard, forecaster for Météo France. There should be a few inches in the plain as well, but the snow should not hold and rain should appear. The weather should clear again “

No snow on the plains since 2018

The cold and snow were brought by storm Bella that hit France a few days ago. “He took in a cold, humid air mass in the back,” explains the forecaster. This is what causes regular snowfall. “

If permanently installed in the upper Jura, the white coat fails to settle on the plain or quickly disappears. It has been many years since it lasted for several days in a row. “At Lons-le-Saunier, for example, we have not exceeded the one-centimeter threshold since 2018, recalls François Jobard. In 2019 and 2020 there was no snow. In Besançon, it has been more than ten years since there was a layer of more than ten centimeters. “
