Alpine forecast

After a good weekend for playing in the snow, more is looking to arrive early this week.

A cold front will bring another light dusting of snow in the late afternoon on Monday. Snow should continue into Tuesday and ease off on Wednesday, with a total accumulation over these three days of around 5-10 cm. Tuesday looks to have the best snowfall, with the levels lowering to around 1400.

A developing longwave trough will increase the frequency of cold fronts, bringing more snow later this week. Friday could have a few light snow showers before Saturday is forecast to be a blizzardy day, with levels possibly dropping as low as 900m.
