Alpine forecast

Beautiful weather will take over the Alps on Friday, Saturday and early Sunday, leading to some of the best conditions on the slopes this season.

Weak fronts are likely to brush the ranges between late Sunday and Wednesday, now likely to bring 5-15cm to the ranges, with the better falls in VIC.

The air is then likely to warm up ahead of the next series of fronts. The first to affect the ranges should come on Saturday 29th, but it will mostly bring rain. Thankfully it's not the only front on the way, with fronts likely to keep moving through with increasingly cooler air until the middle of the following week. These could bring a sizeable amount of snow, but we'll have to wait for the picture to get a little clearer.
