Alpine forecast

Weak fronts will brush the ranges until Wednesday, likely bringing 5-10cm to the main resorts, most at Mt Buller.

The air is then likely to warm up a bit ahead of the next series of fronts. The first front will brush the ranges on the night of Thursday 27th into early Friday, bringing showers, possibly falling as snow as low as 1500 metres. It will then be quite warm on Saturday before another overnight front drops temperatures and lowers the snow level across Sunday.

Weak fronts may brush the ranges in the middle of the following week, before early indications of a reasonable front at the end of the fortnight.
