Alpine forecast

A cold front is currently moving over southeastern parts of the nation causing showers to develop over the Alps this afternoon.

The airmass will be fairly warm initially with only the highest peaks receiving snow this evening, however tomorrow should see snow showers delivering up to 5cm as low as 1300 metres.

Isolated snow showers will continue until around Thursday, although becoming lighter and more sporadic.

Skies should clear in the wake of this front before the next system approaches around Tuesday 9th.
