Alpine forecast

A strong cold front and plenty of moisture are combining to deliver great snowfalls to very low levels across our alpine region.

The front is dragging a polar airmass over the mountains alongside dumping plenty of snow, resulting in big, dry flakes and plenty of powder snow. Strong winds associated with the front is keeping visibility low, and blizzards are likely at times, however the powder snow will more than make up for the tough conditions on the slopes.

Sunday will see snowfalls continue, and there's even the chance of thundersnow so be careful if a storm approaches. The well-below freezing temperatures will keep the snow nice and dry, and some more snow mid-week will contribute further to the well-above average conditions.
