Alpine forecast

A large high pressure system is blocking any significant cold front activity, leading to only light snowfalls at higher elevations. Prior to the next front arriving, a trough will deliver rain throughout Monday morning before the front turns it to snow. Blizzards are expected with the cold front, along with around 20-40cm by mid week.

Depending on the development of a low pressure system, persistent snow may occur in the VIC section of the Alps, lighter in NSW. A high pressure system may then develop, bringing calmer weather and better visibility.
