Alpine forecast

Winter's over, and this is usually the time of year when snowfall start to gradually subside - but fear not! There are a few chances of snow on the horizon.

Today, we got an awesome blue bird day. Winds will be light as well, so it's an excellent opportunity to top off any natural snowfalls with the guns.

The next chance of snow will be from late on Wednesday. Wednesday overall will be pretty windy, increasingly so throughout the day. On Thursday we could see some places get as much as 10 centimeters. However, it doesn't look like the airmass is quite cold enough to warrant snow down to the bases, and any snow around there could turn a bit slushy. From Friday, we will see the snow level low a bit, but we won't see much snow - only a flurry or two.
