5:40am Tuesday 2 September 2014

Conditions Summary:
Well the front happened. There was about 6mm of rain at Falls Creek first. Then the freezing level dropped around 8:30 last night, the rain gauge froze, and I really have no idea how much has fallen. But I’m going to guess 10cm.

Over the border, Perisher was probably picking up snow about the tops by around 10pm, and they might be talking about 15cm up high, but from what I can from the weather station it will only be 5 to 10cm at 1750m.

In the south, Baw Baw has been smashed with 30mm of precip while the temperature has hovered around 0 degrees. So I’m guessing there’s a sleety mess about 1500m, but below 1400m I suspect some damage has been done.

Synoptic Outlook:
Snow showers are flowing across the Australian Alps this morning, a very welcome sight. A couple of centimetres is on the cards for VIC resorts, and about 5cm for NSW. It’s also cold, and will remain so for a few days.

Any remaining flurries should be snuffed out tomorrow morning as a high pressure system moves in over the south. The will mean mostly fine weather returns for several days, but a south-easterly on Friday might just push a flurry up into NSW.

Tuesday 2 September:
Southerlies another couple of cm of snow, mostly in NSW.

Wednesday 3 September:
Southerlies. Flurries in NSW clearing. Nice and cold.

Thursday 4 September:
Fine and cool.

Friday 5 September:
Mostly fine. South-easterlies. Chance of a flurry in NSW.

Extended Outlook:
Another cold change is on the cards for next week, but it’s not clear what it will look like yet.
