Alpine forecast

With a few more snow-bearing cold fronts lined up to cross over the Alps, there is more snow on its way.

A gusty cold front set to reach the resorts late Monday, and another one will arrive a day later. Between these two systems, a good amount of snow is expected. However, gusty winds and blizzard-like conditions are expected until about Wednesday afternoon. This will create dangerous conditions on the slopes and the roads, so please check before you head out.

A nice big high pressure system will move in around midweek, bringing more settled conditions across the resorts. Although the wind will ease, there looks to be some cloud sticking around and maybe the odd snow shower thrown in for good measure.
