Alpine forecast

After decent snowfalls today the end of the working week looks to bring slightly less snow with just a few showers expected on Thursday on Friday.

Fear not however as it looks to be bumper weekend with two large snow-bearing systems moving their way across Alpine resorts, bringing around 10-20cm of the white stuff each day.

Visibility won't be great however, with fresh winds accompanying the falls. If you're lucky enough to be off work at the start of next week, visibility should improve significantly on Monday making it a great day to hit the slopes.

Further snow is due into the middle of the week before a couple of clearer days and further improved visibility going into next weekend.
