    EC / yr.no suggesting that Baw Baw will get a very solid dump out of this.

    Tuesday for Baw Baw.
    I'd expect it to be snowing a fair bit there right through to Tuesday morning.

    IMO not much of a change.
    Looking like a 15cm system (+/-5 cm), with possibly Baw Baw to do better.

    Even though the front is very SW

    Just don't seem to be getting that draw down from the tropics to make it really work.

    looks like it drys up a bit after Monday morning on Axs no? Best to get it when it's cold and falling/just fallen I reckon.

    I think it will hang around in the south and south east a bit longer.

    noted. I might be getting a niggling little cough coming on... Even a little bit of snow at Baw Baw is better than none at all.

    I take it that means we might squeeze a bit more out of this in the Snowy Mts?

    IMO I'm not seeing any real change on EC.
    Still a 15cm system.

    That BOM forecast looks remarkably similar to the GFS mrf of a few days ago.

    But that will no longer be correct when the snow is on the ground Monday morning ... and melting Wednesday - Thursday.

    1st of June is the cutoff for an official "late start": http://gergs.net/2015/04/snow-season-start/

    Trailing high look like it may be a big blocker, what would be good is low cloud Tues-Friday to minimise loss from solar radiation. Nights should be cold which will help to preserve. Either way, the guns will top up the easy groomers to get the ball rolling IMO, but I agree, we'd want to see that high break down by end of next weekend. Some models suggesting another NW feed. Warm Indian Ocean SST's influencing things IMO Good for W.A. farmers, they need it...

    I think this system may still surprise IMO. There is quite a large NW cloud band covering inland NSW which will get sucked into the mix, along with several embedded troughs.
    Also, IMO, don't be surprised to see some places get a lot more of snow than others, and with the predominant S/SW direction when the cold air hits I'm betting Baw Baw and Buller will do best.

    About a week ago most models had the NW feed moving with a westerly frontal system, this has changed dramatically in the last 4-5 days.

    In order for an inland trough to influence Alp snowfall you need a peaking band well west of this system's aspect. The main front of this scenario will be bearing WSW followed by a SSW flow. The mid-level troughs over central NSW on Sunday will have no impact whatsoever on alpine snow for this system.

    So much cold speckle. Travelling North East. What I'd give for it to be 300km further north. Tassie should get smashed. imo.

    Inland cloud should keep temps lower as the system approaches. Atmosphere already cold. Should help minimise any wet stuff early. AXS R still has 20-30mm precip .

    Pre-season snow forecast
    Guy Dixon, Saturday May 30, 2015 - 11:44 EST

    With just one week until the start of the 2015 snow season, conditions are looking ripe for some healthy pre-season falls.

    A cold front is looking to sweep over southeastern parts of the nation late on the weekend bringing an airmass cold enough for low level snow.

    The greatest amount of precipitation is looking to fall late on Sunday night where 5-15cm could accumulate down to around 1100 metres with a cooling airmass. The airmass looks to be at it's coldest by around daybreak on Monday morning, however a lot of the precipitation looks to have dried up. Throughout Monday, another 5cm is likely to fall as low as 1000 metres.

    Due to the southwesterly wind direction following this front, Victorian resorts are expected to collect the best snow falls, while resorts north of the border are more protected and favour a northwesterly airflow.

    This cool airmass is expected to linger throughout much of the week with only gradual warming. As a result, temperatures on the peaks should remain close to freezing making snow melt negligible. As the 2015 season kicks off on Friday, there should still be plenty of snow on the ground, despite some crusty conditions due to repeated re-freezing of the top snow layer each night.

    And Jindy too with the southerly air flow which is classic direction for Jindy & Cooma snowfalls.

    Kinda ironic (and awesome) that the first calendar day of winter will have snow falling..... :)

    Looking at the satellite image best chance of decent snow is in the pre frontal. Very dry looking air behind that with the bulk of the white smegma cloud missing the mainland.

    I'm feeling a slight temperature rise in NSW with the pre frontal but it should come down as snow above 1600m. The pre frontal almost always comes as rain, so it'll be nice to see what we get, (given it has already started even at Perisher, I reckon it'll be a bit more than we have been predicting as of yet)
