Just in time for August, a healthy update of fresh snow is on the way… 

The Grasshopper pegged this next system as a problem child earlier in the week and this is precisely what it’s turned out to be. The high pressure system has strengthened slightly overnight, meaning that the forecasted totals have dropped a little. In today’s detailed forecast he said: “The forecast totals have fallen to around 20cm today, basically because the high pressure is looking a little stronger. You may recall that yesterday I said this wouldn’t surprise me. On the other hand, I wouldn’t be surprised to see the model stick with a forecast of 20cm and for us to get 30cm anyway.”
