6:20am Wednesday 3 September 2014

Conditions Summary:
I’m not trusting the weather station data I see this morning, so I’d recommend checking our http://www.mountainwatch.com/snow-reports for conditions at your resort.

Synoptic Outlook:
A couple of flurries to be snuffed out this morning, then in comes another high pressure system. That low you can see in the Bight in the image below is going to peter out before it makes it to the resorts, then another high from the west will merge with the first one, and that will see things fine right through to Monday.

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

Thursday 4 September:
Fine and cool.

Friday 5 September:
Mostly fine. South-easterlies.

Saturday 6 September:
Fine with light winds.

Extended Outlook:
Another cold change is on the cards for the second half of next week, possibly in two parts and possibly quite significant. It could be very wet to start, and end with a fair whack of snow. A typical spring system.
