Alpine forecast

The next system will pack a punch.

A deep cold front is barrelling towards the resorts. Today, wind and cloud will increase ahead of the rain which looks to arrive early on Thursday.

The rain will quickly tend to snow during Thursday, and while the moisture and cold air lingers, snow showers will continue into Friday and Saturday. All up there is potential for 50cm of fresh snow.

The next system looks to arrive during Monday, which could bring some more healthy snowfalls.
