6:10am Saturday 30 August 2014

Conditions Summary:
Fine again.

Synoptic Outlook:
A ridge of high pressure arching across the south-east is king for another two days, then a cold front is going to push through on Monday afternoon and evening with a little rain followed by a little snow. The most important thing about this system is that it’s going to bring about five days of nice cool air, which is going to help to maintain the snowpack as we move into spring.

Saturday 30 August:
Mostly fine.

Sunday 31 August:
Mostly fine. North-westerlies breezes rising in the afternoon.

Monday 1 September:
A cold front brings 5mm of rain then about 5cm of snow.

Tuesday 2 September:
A snow shower or two. Nice and cold.

Extended Outlook:
Another cold change is on the cards for the week after next. If you want more detail, check out my final seasonal outlook for 2014.
