Here is the latest forecast:
Saturday morning, the disturbance will progress slowly towards Haute-Normandie, Pas-de-Calais and the west of the Paris basin. As it progresses, weakly negative temperatures will become weakly positive. The snow will remain sticky and could stick on the sectors most exposed to the south-westerly wind but also the highest. In the west of Ile-de-France, the snow will arrive between 10 a.m. and 11 a.m. before heading to the capital.
Saturday afternoon, the disturbance will continue its progression in the direction of the Ardennes, Champagne, the east of Ile-de-France then southwards, touching Burgundy and the Center region. It is mainly in these regions that the snowfall could be the most significant and make the traffic conditions sometimes difficult.
