Monday 17 September
NW winds will get going today as the high over SE Australia sets sail into the Tasman Sea. A cold front brushes over the Aussie Alps on Wednesday, with cold westerly winds and a nice wee dusting of snow gracing our slopes. W-SW winds continue to blow on Thursday as a high inches closer from the west.

Snow showers and strong westerly winds gradually easing. Accumulations for the day should be around the 5cm mark.

High pressure builds on Friday, then gets shoved to the north as a cold front glances the Aussie Alps on Saturday with a light peppering of powder. Snow flurries will continue on Sunday as winds swing around to a cold southerly. A ridge will glide over us on Monday, allowing N-NW winds to develop on Tuesday.
