Monday 16 September – Rain today, but 5-10cm for NSW later, then warm and sunny
It’s warm and wet in the Aussie Alps this morning. But a front marking the edge of a frigid airmass is on its way over Victoria, and will reach NSW this afternoon, where it will turn rain to snow. Only a few snow showers will fall in Victoria, but heavier falls over NSW should see 5-10cm accumulate there.
After that, high pressure will sail through the Bass Strait on Tuesday, leaving a ridge of high pressure, sunshine and warm temps over the Aussie Alps through Wednesday and Thursday.

Monday 15 September
Rain with heavy falls and gale NW winds ahead of a front, which will cross Victoria this morning and NSW this afternoon.
A lighter but freezing southerly change behind the front will drop a few snow flurries/showers over Victoria, but heavier falls in NSW should drop about 5-10cm there from afternoon.
Tuesday 16 September
Brisk, cold SE winds push cloud against the south of the Aussie Alps and up and over NSW resorts where there might be a morning snow flurry. Most Vic resorts will be cloud free however, and winds will gradually ease.
Wednesday 17 September
Blissfully sunny and calm.
Thursday 18 September
A nice day, but northerly winds pick up and push in a little bit of afternoon cloud.
We’ll have warm northerlies during Friday, before a cold front brings a whole swag of rain during Saturday, although it’ll briefly turn to snow as the cold air hits with just a dusting likely.
After that, high pressure is likely to dominate over the next several days while a weak front slips under the Aussie Alps Monday and Tuesday next week.
