Australian Forecast – Light Snow Showers Monday & Thursday, Sunshine Tuesday & Wednesday

Published early Monday 17th June 2024

It was a great weekend that saw a little bit of everything; sunshine, cloud, fog, and a few snow showers. Temperatures were also cold enough for the snow guns add a little more to our fledgling snowpack.

Early season conditions will persist over the next wee while with just a couple of snow showers in store today, Monday, before these persistent, cold southerlies finally start to ease, allowing the sun to shine on Tuesday and Wednesday.

A weak low-pressure system will sneak around the top of the Aussie Alps on Thursday, potentially bringing light snow showers and a dusting of snow.

Monday 17th June

Brisk and chilly southerly winds will continue to push low-level cloud into the Aussie Alps, bringing low visibility in fog-like conditions at times along with one or two snow showers. Winds gradually ease a little.

Tuesday 18th June

Morning cloud clears to a nice sunny day. A light, chilly southerly breeze should have the snow guns blazing early and late.

Wednesday 19th June

Nice and sunny with a light W-NW breeze developing. Chilly temps early and late will allow more snowmaking.

Thursday 20th June

Cloud will build before snow showers get started in the afternoon, although it’s possible they’ll arrive in the morning, falling to around 1400-1500m. Light NW breezes.

Extended Forecast

We should see a few more snow showers falling on Friday 21st June with a change back to cold southerlies. Snowfall accumulations will be miniscule, but this will lead into another prolonged period of snowmaking as high pressure moves in for a mostly fine, settled weekend.

The next snowfall looks possible through the back half of next week, from about Wednesday 26th June onwards, although models have already chopped and changed the details on this one, so we’ll have to wait and see.

That’s all from me today folks. The next forecast is Wednesday, see you then.
