Alpine forecast

Partly cloudy yet dry skies are wrapping up a great weekend on the slopes, and these conditions are likely to stay until Tuesday when rain really kicks in.

Cold nights have allowed the snow makers to keep the good base going, and sunny periods between the clouds have kept visibility good. Make the most out of Monday, because come Tuesday rain will increase throughout the day, and heavy rain is likely on Wednesday. By Thursday it will ease off, but only briefly.

A stronger system due Friday will again bring heavy rain. Temperatures will be a little colder, so a mix of rain and snow is expected well into Saturday, however the flakes should only fall at higher elevations. The next best chance of snow is at the end of the forecast with indications of a strong cold front.
