Alps weather website (&kit) recommendations

Off to Saint Jean de Maurienne on Sunday for 5 days cycling up the Galibier and the like.  Looking at the long range forecast (I know, almost certainly useless anywhere 5 days in advance, especially a mountain) just to get a picture of what to pack.  However using a couple of different websites I am getting totally different answers depending on the website, even just looking at tomorrow's forecast. Anyone got a go-to site?


Also recommendations of kit gladly received. Was kind of planning to go up in a short sleeve jersey with a packable rain jacket and maybe some long finger gloves for the descent but starting to think this may be underkill. Maybe have room for a ls baselayer to shove on to battle windchill on the way down but limited to jersey pockets and those will need to have a couple of thousand callories of food in.
