    Looks like we might have one last hurrah, GFS and Access both showing promise.

    IMO If current charts were to hold we would get 30-50cm of powder with 528 thickness over the alps (NSW) :):woohoo:

    If the four day rule could bring it forward by four days I'd be very happy indeed. Guess who's going back to reality on the 28th:(:(

    I thought so too .
    Starting to get a rather familiar look about it.
    BUT.
    Have learned not to swing and bet on every run / update.
    Still a long way out .
    Edit : That pressure be getting low there jeffx !

    Weather in spring (& autumn) can be very volatile. I trust models even less than in Winter & Summer.

    One would hope not. It would be another world of pain.

    Purple area's are the wheat belt, EPS run.


    [​IMG]
    Furthest isobar is @1000mb on the deterministic, @Vermilion nobody is asking you to buy into the EC runs, constructive reasons why you think the runs are a load of sh--t instead of one liners would be more appropriate.

    If you have better model data then plssssss post it,give these guys a heads up.I don't care if it snows, flooding and possible property damage is the feature here. So post away V no more from me.

    Jeff mate, you gotta take a bit of a chill pill and just calm it down a bit. Do you have personal vested interests in the models? It's OK to say you dont think something will come off, especially a 987hpa low, they are pretty bloody rare over mainland SE Australia. Dont take it personally man.

    Made me recall this bad boy of 2-3 February 2005.
    Dropped 120mm in Melbourne, greatest 24 hour rainfall since records began being kept

    Not sure about quantity, but I do recall there was snow that fell as a result of that system.
    With catchments pretty soaked, anything close to system like that dropping plenty of rain would cause a lot of carnage atm.
    This one was somewhat similar (early September 2010) that dropped a lot of rain too. Hotham was shut down, the road at Falls was cut by a landslide, and car parks at Buller were affected by a landslide as well:

    Wave trying to break over SE Australia. looks Good. Not sure how you can offer much analysis on a localized 987 Hpa Low that far out over SE Aus. If it was in the Tasman and or Coral Sea, you would have greater confidence than over Victoria.

    But localized lows are trending on the models and real time at the moment so who knows. However, I would take the typical winter front that is colder and clears with a fat high.

    :nerd:

    I like that GFS chart.... but I don't really think it's gonna happen sadly. For no other reason than lack of season vibe.

    Time to migrate north to the main range. There is plenty of vibe up there, just need some clear highs.

    Not much agreement about the shape, but the models both think something will happen.

    AXS looking pretty good. In fact, every model is showing something that's kinda similar. At least we dont have 1 model showing a blocking high, or GFS going full ECL on us.
    A couple of decent blobs between 9-11 oclock too. I'm listening:

    Jane cautiously optimistic




    "Then the next big low arrives with a long stretch of precipitation for the rest of the week. Latest guidance shows this system will keep its cold air, and there could be a lot of snow to finish the season. "

    IMO still has the potential to be ridged out.
