Alpine forecast

Ski-fans, turn that frown upside-down, because we are about to receive days and days of snow, re-establishing our snowbase once more.

A series of strong cold fronts are whipping through southeastern Australia, delivering cold air and good snowfalls as we speak. Blizzard conditions have eased, and by the end of Monday around 30-50cm will have been dumped. The wind will pick up again from Monday, making seeing difficult for a spell, but by mid-week, winds will ease and skies will clear up a bit, bringing much more ideal conditions for the intrepid winter adventurer.

After a brief warming trend during the second week, there are good indications of cooler temperatures and light snowfalls to finish off the forecast.
