Alpine forecast

Following a weekend of invigoratingly cold mornings and clear days, weak fronts will brush the ranges until Wednesday, likely bringing 10-20cm 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 about Friday 28th, bringing light snow. A more significant front should arrive a few days later, dropping temperatures and bringing a good run of snowy days into the start of August.
