Alpine forecast

Clearing skies will make for good conditions on the slopes this weekend, as well as the next.

The main resorts have all seen around half a metre in the past week, with lingering snowfalls at Mt Buller this morning, and skies clearing and winds easing throughout Saturday to reveal excellent conditions for this point in the season.

During the week, conditions will be relatively calm and cold, allowing for consistent overnight snowfalls. On Thursday into Friday, the next major frontal system will cross the southeast, with fresh totals likely to be near 20cm for the event across the region, potentially heavier.

As with the current weekend, a high pressure system will move in behind the cold front next weekend, bringing favourable weather conditions to enjoy the fresh powder.

Fronts are looking fairly consistent in the following week, beginning from about Tuesday 5th July.
