    BOM 4-dayer falling into line. I still like it for 15-25cm. Perisher/NSW resorts to get the upper scale of that. EC backed off a touch more.
    Maybe a touch of pre-frontal rain arriving Thursday night with the trough ahead of the front. Game on from 10-11pm Thursday IMO. Over by Friday midday.

    Ordinarily you'd be skeptical at a 1030hpa high getting pushed out of the way like that, but there just isnt any heat in the continent at the moment (where's PG now with his we're melting press releases?) and it just gets swept aside.

    11 height shades in the lapse is suggesting this will be another cold howler.[​IMG]

    Don't think the BOM 4 dayer looks as good as yesterdays. Quite a drop off.

    GFS forecasting two events in the period. ACCESS R still to upload. Both events have a 534 cross. Solid clippers.

    Friday.

    It's looked highly likely since it popped up. The models have never been fully certain about this one.

    Will it make buller unskiable or just inconvenient?

    Hard to say. A bit unpleasant on Thursday IMO. But don't quote me on that! It usually takes a fair bit to close Buller.

    ...Like it was never there on GFS!
    That broad E-W fetch across the bight will keep the surfers on the Surf coast happy. Good peak periods anyway.

    Some of the current forecasts are undercooking the totals I reckon.

    For me I reckon we could be looking at a good 20-30cm by the end of Friday (there's still another 12 hours of precip after this chart).

    I think it will be def cold enough. It's a touch colder than last Tuesday/Wednesday's event. Snow down to 1600m initially, getting lower through event.

    From a quick whip round the charts and a look on yeah nah I reckon Thursday To Friday midday ok for 15-25 cm above 1600m.
    Should set up the weekend nicely after a few more nights of snowmaking IMO

    Looks plenty cold enough on Access R.

    if the prefrontal keeps it together it could be lots of snow in a short amount of time.

    GFS likes too and suggest the prefrontal will fall as snow.

    While 500m Geopotential isn't great

    [​IMG]

    But it does seem cold enough

    [​IMG]

    Could still do ok. I'm not seeing 30cm, but 20cm is possible IMO

    Got to keep in mind that the atmosphere remains cold from the last system with no real chance to heat up in between, so what would have otherwise been too warm (looking at 850 and 500hpa), or borderline, will probably be cold enough at resort level Imo.

    Time to weigh in. Looks like moisture from Thurday Lunchtime to late Friday. Coldpool lagging only slightly, so maybe a touch of pre-frontal. But not much.

    I'm calling up to 30cm for Vic, and up to 25cm for NSW.

    Partly cloudy and slight possiiblity of small amount of moisture on weekend.

    OH BTW. Forecast provided with a little extra Mint. :D
