Alpine forecast

Following a series of weak cold fronts that brought about 5-10cm to the main resorts, the air is likely to warm up a bit from Thursday ahead of the next series of fronts.

The first front will brush the ranges on the night of Thursday 27th into early Friday, bringing showers, possibly falling as snow as low as 1500 metres. It should heat up somewhat on Saturday before another overnight front drops temperatures and lowers the snow level across Sunday.

Weak fronts may brush the ranges in the middle of the following week, before early indications of a reasonable front at the end of the fortnight.
