Friday, July 5
The NE flow over the Aussie Alps will clock around to the NW over the next few days as the high sitting off Tasmania shuffles up the Tasman Sea. A grotty looking front will bring drizzle and rain Sunday night and Monday, with snow falling only about the tops.
Image of the Day
Friday 5 July
Mainly fine apart from some morning cloud about NSW resorts. Light N-NE breezes.
Saturday 6 July
Northerly winds will be pushing in a bit of cloud, especially during the afternoon.
Sunday 7 July
A mostly fine day with N-NW breezes, but cloud will build from late afternoon and there’ll be drizzle after dark.
Monday 8 July
A drizzly, rain day, with snow falling about the tops. NW winds will gradually swing around to the W-SW
In the wake of the rain, cold temps will swash over the Aussie Alps during Tuesday and we might even see a few snowflakes. Those solitary flakes should build into something more consistent during Wednesday as a cold front approaches from the west, but it’ll get slushy on lowers slopes as NW winds go absolutely bonkers. At this stage, the front should hit during Thursday with moderate snow accumulations on the cards. There’s a good chance cold temps will continue through Friday and next weekend with more snow falling. Awesome!
