The Grasshopper‘s jumping up and down and screaming for snow.

In today’s forecast he said:

“A substantial front is going to move through on Monday June 23. The GRREEEAAATTT news is that the freezing level should fall soon after the rain arrives, so I only envisage losing about 10mm to rain, before we pick up 10 to 30cm (revised) of snow down to low levels. Don’t get caught up or hypnotised by that upper figure. If you quote me, quote 15 to 30cm. We’re still a long way out and estimates could rise or fall over the next few days. But I likes the looks of this one.”

Keep you eye on The Grasshopper’s daily forecast over the next few days to see how this one tracks. We should have a more definitive answer by the time this weeks’ Weekend Forecast is sent out on Thursday, so if you haven’t already, sign up below.
