Alpine forecast

Cold fronts brought fresh snow on the weekend, about 5cm over the main resorts.

A high pressure system is now clearing and calming skies while maintaining the chill, priming it for snow-making.

This week will stay cold with help from a few passing fronts in quick succession. Thursday's front has potential to be strong enough to bring more than 5cm of fresh snow to the main resorts (most likely Mt Buller and Baw Baw) and also strong winds.

Another good chance for fresh snow is during the first week of July when a decent cold front-or-two is again likely.
