Alpine forecast

We got some more snow arriving later this week, but mostly for the Victorian Alps. It will get increasingly windy on Thursday, with some snow flurries later at night and into Friday.

We then got a series of fronts that will deliver variable amounts of snow, but it it pretty windy over the weekend and into next week. Expect snow showers dropping a dusting in Victorian Alps again Saturday with another front. Unfortunately we could get a rather showery night on Sunday.

Monday and Tuesday are a better chance for decent snowfall across the resorts, but it's a better call to wait until after Tuesday for a trip up to the fields - it will be pretty windy!
