Alpine forecast

Until Monday only a few flurries will fall, mostly on the peaks, tending to showers below about 1600m.

A large low pressure system then looks to draw a powerful series of fronts across the Alpine region. Heavy rain on Monday will tend to snow by Tuesday morning, bringing 3-4 days of consecutive snowfall.

Although there is significant model uncertainty due to the system's complexity, this looks to be the most significant snow event so far this season, with in excess of 20cm a high chance for more than one day. The snow level looks to drop as low as 900m at times.

However, given how windy and cold it will be during this period, this will make for blizzardy conditions.
