The Mountainwatch Detailed Forecast is provided by our resident meteorology sensei "The Grasshopper".

Today will be partly cloudy with very mild northerly winds between a high out east and a low spinning in The Bight. It will be very spring-like with soft snow. Those northerlies will strengthen tomorrow as a front moves in from the west. Light rain will start to fall tomorrow evening and intensify overnight and into Wednesday morning. I am going to go for 25-50mm which is more than our model is showing - I don’t think it is capturing the tropical moisture associated with this front that well. The rain should start to clear off midday Wednesday as the front heads into the Tasman. Thursday will be partly cloudy under a ridge of high pressure, way up in the Northern Territory a low will start to form…
