After a few cm’s of fresh snow yesterday the next few days are looking great for all you fine weather friends as high-pressure nudges in from the west. There’ll just be a bit of cloud to contend with and southerly winds are freezing out there today. Snow guns will have a good run, as overnight temps will be positively freezing.

A fine start, then high cloud will gradually thicken as NW winds pick up.

Extended Forecast

Well unfortunately the rug has been pulled from under us; Thursdays’ snowfall is now looking like a dusting at best. All the action appears to have shifted east, leaving us with the weak tail end of a cold front. However, cold, calm conditions through Friday and Saturday should keep the snow guns running to make up for some of the shortfall.

From Sunday onwards a subtropical depression forms along the east coast of Australia, eventually developing into a Tasman low early next week. The movement of this low could either see the Aussie Alps remain high and dry, or cop a wet, heavy mix of snow and rain. We’ll have to wait closer to the time before making any big calls on this one.

That’s all from me today folks, get out there and make the most of these great conditions. I’m sending out these forecasts every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
