5:20am Thursday 18 September 2014

Conditions Summary:
We scored a couple of cm of fresh in VIC yesterday, and about 6cm in NSW. There’s been a good freeze that should have set us up for a fun day.

Synoptic Outlook:
A low pressure system heading across to New Zealand should have just enough influence to pull a couple of flurries across the Australian Alps today, before a high comes in and dries things up from tomorrow until Sunday . Southerlies keep pulling in cooler air through the weekend, and long sunny days are going to see some warm afternoons followed by rapid freezes overnight. This is spring.

Thursday 18 September:
Brisk south-westerlies and occasional flurries.

Friday 19 September:
Mostly fine. Brisk south-westerlies

Saturday 20 September:
Mostly fine with a southerly breeze.

Sunday 21 September:
Mostly fine with a southerly breeze.

Extended Outlook:
Next week is going to be a lot warmer and we’ll start to lose snow more quickly. The sooner you head back up the better.
