Avalanche warning over the alps

Across the Alps there has been a heavy amount of snow over the past few days - enough to see the avalanche warning rise to five out of five.

In the last week we've had a month's worth of snow - in fact, more snow has fallen so far than all of last years ski season.

Closer to home, we'll have largely dry weather with some patches of rain towards the end of the weekend. Mild, but windy conditions.
