Conditions Summary:
It’s mostly fine, but there are a few showers on the radar already.

Synoptic Outlook:
I expect more showers today, especially this afternoon, with the snow level around 1500m.

Enjoy those winter feelz while they are around hoppers because it’s back to spring tomorrow and Wednesday with mild temps, and some rain getting in on Wednesday too ahead of the next front. This front crosses on Thursday and we should see a few snow showers down to around 1700m behind it.

Monday 25 September.
Snow down to 1500m, another 5cm possible.

Tuesday 26 September:
Partly cloudy. Warming up again.

Wednesday 27 September:
Rain arrives. Mild northwesterlies pick up.

Thursday 28 September:
Snow down to 1700m, 5cm possible. Westerlies.

Extended Outlook:
Snow showers get down to around 1400m for Friday and Saturday, but the amounts won’t be much. Then it’s back to high pressure and spring again for Sunday and Monday before we are looking at another front crossing. For now this one looks like it will bring us only rain. Ugh.
