Alpine forecast

Apart from a few snow flurries today, drier conditions will take over as we move into the weekend.

A ridge of high pressure will bring fine and sunny weather over the weekend, presenting a great opportunity to hit the slopes as we depart the winter season. The air mass will become warm as the high pressure draws down air from the north.

There are no signs of any significant falls over the next fortnight, but this should come as no surprise since we are stepping into Spring.
