    What are the chances of Alpine Way beyond Jindabyne closing Monday or Tuesday? Would you rather be snowed in or snowed out?

    Clearly late to the party.
    Has anyone mentioned that EC is forecasting 2m! And I reckon some leeward spots could get even more.

    This will go down in legend. IMO.

    189cm (Most recent Spencer's Creek) + 213cm = 402cm.
    Now that would actually be legendary.
    Has that ever happened before?

    About a dozen seasons over 3m. Never a dump in the order of +1.5m

    Lol..
    I'm driving. It's got a brutal hook on Sat.
    If this stays. You'd expect 20/30cm around 800m ..in odd spots.

    IMO I'm finding it hard to believe we'll get anywhere near that total.
    But if we even get half that ...

    That's the thing. Looks good on paper but the paper is at arm's length from being writable.
    I do like the low level on it. Canberra subs kinda stuff.

    I'm really wishing it was next weekend not the16th when I'm going down to Perisher. Sigh. I will have to live vicariously through all those there next weekend and hope you leave me a bit for the weekend after.
    At least there's a chance of snow at home in Bowral next Saturday.

    Never. It's unprecedented.
    355cm in 1964 is as big as it gets (11AUG) Spencers Creek, as far as records go.

    * it hasn't fallen yet

    Disregarding you can get 250cm in a week in Japan. And the base goes up by 60.

    Very similar, the deeply fetched ridge and mid level low being slungshot from WA later in week really stood out to me in this present day scenario.

    With the couple of cells sitting out between Africa & us, will be interesting what plays out in the week following as well.

    As expected EC readjusts the low for Friday. Calling it to deepen and flick off into the Tasman.

    GFS still calling a peak over SE Aus
