Alpine forecast

Winter is well and truly back on track with 5-10cm in the last 24 hours and plenty more to come.

The strong cold front that crossed the Alps yesterday has moved offshore, however there are a few more lined up to add to the recovering snowpack. The strongest cold front in two weeks will bring the heaviest falls later on Monday, and by mid week after the fronts take a break, about 50-80cm is likely to have accumulated. Blizzards at higher elevations and strong winds throughout the mountains are very likely within this period, so layer up well as the windchill will make it feel extremely cold.

High pressure throughout the middle of the forecast will bring slightly warmer temperatures than present, however the second week is looking good for more frozen flakes of joy.
