    I think you have something there!.. One of the experts (ie everyone quotes them) says that the max level of snow will be attained this week, for the season. Well I don't think it will. 2.5 is possible. 3m would be very nice.

    Yeah, looks ok.
    GFS has it ridged out. Needs to come a long way to align but I think it’s good for maybe ~30cm .

    Ummm .... The ubiquitous frog (sorry, Steve) has forecast some rain for Perisher on Tuesday 21st August. Long way out, I know, but it concerns me as I will be at Smiggins/Perisher for that week and friends were considering joining us on ... Tuesday. Any thoughts this early in the piece?

    That guy only reads GFS. GFS forecasts rain maybe snow later. EC snow throughout. We unfortunately have to be patient with this one.

    He only updates Monday to Friday. Check it now, no rain. Weatherzone (GFS?) gives an almost identical forecast and has backed off on the numbers.

    BOM still showing some tears on Tuesday for PV. But only enough to put some slick down. And maybe gone in today's arvo update?

    A bit of prefrontal for the first hour or so based on GFS.

    EC's a ridger though.

    Urgh. Southerly. That Axs chart can take a hike.
    Not much snow, and what there is will be blasted to shizen by the wind. Coral reef for days.

    EC shows a fair amount of moisture and cold. Looks like 10-30cm IMO.

    There's a pulse.
    Hopefully some rain as well from a onshore flow

    I've been following this date range for the last week or though due to Splitfest the following weekend. Posted similar in BC thread but it has been looking zonal and marginal the whole time. Good outcome would be a 10cm top up and cold temps above 1500. Most models are showing a nice little follow up swipe to this weekends front.

    Yeah the immediate follow up progression disappeared (you were right) but a bit of a dusting for Friday by the looks. Should be an interesting snowpack by the 24th ;)

    Hoping this comes off, but I'm predicting about a 5cm dusting... The weekend that follows is currently looking pretty ugly IMO.

    A bit of a warm spell next weekend, but August 28 could be epic and repair any damage.
