Alpine forecast

The cover of recently-laid natural 10-20cm of snow has been holding up fairly well due to a high pressure system bringing cold, calm nights. Ideal for snow-making machines to fluff up the runs.

A low pressure trough then cold front will bring rain this Friday and snow from Saturday to Monday. Snow is likely to become heavy at times and fall lightly as low as about 1300 metres. By late Monday fresh snow should amount to as much as 10-20cm, potentially more at the higher resorts, improving the quality of the natural cover again. Light snow showers should even continue for a few more days in the east with help from a low off the coast. However, this low would most likely cause wind to strengthen.

Fresh snowfalls have their next best chance on about Sunday 19th and the few days to follow.
