Wednesday will be mild and sunny with strengthening northerly winds between the high, which will slide into the Tasman, and a powerful low spinning in The Bight.
I am hopping up and down with joy that the storm forecast for the second half of the week is still on track. Thursday will be a transition day from mild nastiness to cold goodness. We can expect 15-30mm of rain and strong north-westerly winds during the morning before temperatures plummet around midday as a cold front passes through...rain will turn to snow and we should see 4-10cm through the afternoon/eve down to 1200m.

Closing day should be sunny and very mild with strong north-westerly winds between a deep low waaay out west and a high to the north-east. After the fresh snow forecast at the end of the week we could be making our last few runs in double digit temperatures. We certainly have a lot to get excited about!!!
