Alpine forecast

Snow will ease today as the level gradually rises, with then only the odd flurry falling above 1600m until Sunday. However, in this period, a high pressure ridge will bring light winds and generally clear skies, great for firing up the snow-guns to top off any natural powder.

A large, blustery system is expected to approach on Monday. Although it will bring rain at first, by Tuesday heaps this rain will tend to snow, dumping much as 30-40cm in 24 hours, with the level potentially reaching 900m at times. Depending on how this system moves, lighter snow showers could continue to fall well into next week.
