    Are we looking for a new predictions thread as there seems still to be some sting in the season?

    For which system? I am not seeing any notable snow-bearing systems on the horizon TBH.
    Might be some cold air pool influence on Monday but looks kinda dry to me.
    A discussion for the BBQ thread for now.

    We are however seeing the upper level cold pool for this system 16/17th over the CT’s this arvo. Might be a chance of snow this arvo above 1100m IMO.

    The trough drawn in through inland of the continent looks like it’ll bring 10-15mm of rain to the alps, Friday night, Saturday. All to warm IMO.
    However the cold air arrives Saturday with a dusting and further cold air arriving Monday. Looks cold.
    Probably a dusting to a few CM each day IMO.
    Looking quite dry.

    Stay on Topic.
    It’s still up for discussion. The memorable systems are always the ones we never saw coming.;)

    Do you think Perisher Valley will get a sprinkle snow on Monday? BOM and Ms Bunn seems to think so.

    Yep. Won't be much but I think dusting - 3cm is likely IMO.
    All models agree.

    The 10 km XC ski loop at Perisher was cooked when I was there on 22/9/19. I was on the rock hoppers and was skiing on grass, mud, rocks, water courses and red dusted sludgy snow. I could hear the fat lady singing in my ear!.The blizzard like conditions at Perisher on 23/9/19 might have been of some use to the terrain on the lifted runs but it was not enough to fix the XC terrain.
