Alpine forecast

Conditions are looking pleasant for the remainder of the weekend with some cloud building on Sunday ahead of the next front due early next week.

Snow showers with a cold front will deliver a dusting of snow from Monday to Wednesday accumulating to around 5-10cm. Tuesday is looking to receive the best snowfall with levels lowering to 1600 metres.

A strong node of the longwave trough will move over Australia late in the week and into the weekend, bringing a series of strong cold fronts. Saturday has the potential to see snow falling to 900 metres, with the Victorian Alps faring the best under a southwesterly flow. As a whole, the period from Friday to Monday is looking very promising.
