Alpine forecast

Snow is falling and is getting heavier but visibility is deteriorating as wind increases, leading to blizzard-like conditions. In terms of fresh snow during Thursday/Friday, Victorian resorts should do best, gaining 15-25cm, while NSW resorts pick up 10-15cm.

Winds will have eased and conditions cleared enough by Friday afternoon to enjoy the fresh dry powder on top of a decent base. Light snowfalls will intermittently grace the slopes this weekend, maintaining a winter-like feel.

Another decent snow-bearing system should move through from Tuesday 5th to Thursday 7th, bringing 15-30cm all up. Beyond that, intermittent light snowfalls are likely from about Monday 11th to Wednesday 13th. And nights will be cold enough for worthwhile snow making.
