Alpine forecast

It will stay cold all week with help from a few passing fronts in quick succession. Thursday's front is likely to be fairly weak, although we could see close to 5cm at some resorts (most likely Mt Buller and Baw Baw) and also brisk winds.

A better chance for fresh snow is during the first week of July when a decent series of cold fronts is likely. There are signs of this being one of our snowiest weeks of the season so far with more than 20cm a good chance.
