Alpine forecast

Snow flurries today and over the weekend will cap off a memorable week across the Alps.

A large high pressure system is currently blocking any significant cold front activity, leading to only light snowfalls at higher elevations. Prior to the next front arriving, a trough will deliver rain throughout Monday morning before the front turns it to snow. Blizzards are expected with the cold front, along with around 20-40cm by mid week.

Conditions will clear during the second week as another large high pressure system lingers. Light showers are likely at lower elevations however generally it will be drier than the coming week with good visibility.
