Alpine forecast

There will be some snow flurries for today and tomorrow, but conditions look to dry out into the upcoming weekend.

The airmass is cold enough for snow to most resorts over the next few days, but there does not look to be much moisture available to produce any significant dumps.

There will be a general warming trend moving into next week and any precipitation will be wet in nature.

Some snowfalls are expected during the week, during brief colder interludes, but these will be mostly light and be restricted to the higher elevated resorts.
