(updated @ 12:30pm Thursday 27th May)

Light snowfalls should continue up high over the next few days.

Winds are likely to be strong for around the next 12 days so be careful if travelling backcountry.

Long Range Outlook:

The 1st-4th of June should see alot of moisture coming over the mountains and at this stage it looks as though snow will fall above 1700m from the 2nd to the 4th. Could be possible to get some significant snowfalls from this if the temps drop a degree or two lower that the charts are currently showing – should know more in a day or so.

We could see more light snowfalls up high mixed in with some showers from the 5th-7th.

Looking further ahead I really like the look of the 19th-22nd for possibly the first real dump of the season. After that keep an eye out for the 28th-1st July for possibly more snowfalls.

…..stay tuned to Snowatch for developments.
