    GFS actually looks stronger for Thursday than tomorrow. No other model going with it though.

    Yeah, it also looks like a big opportunity for snow-making on Thursday (day) IMO, so potentially a win-win.

    I reckon we could open some decent terrain for QBW with the snowmaking later in the week and the 5-10cm on Tuesday.

    Short and sharper on EC this morning, inline with GFS. ~5cm IMO

    5cm for all the odd spots further north in elevated NSW too, away from main range.

    Thursday night doesn't look like it'll even touch the sides on GFS now. Clipper proper IMO.
    Tassie picks up a taste though.

    Snowmaking heaven from Thursday to Tuesday IMO.

    To be fair this did start as a massive system for a while there and then turned into what it is... understandable that there was a bit of excitement

    I've turned into a sad arse resort skier wanting fronts to move along to allow for sunshine and snowmaking.

    Can start to dump properly in a couple of weeks when i've got some of my work under control.

    I'm thinking 2-8 is conservative and 10+ is where i'm @ m-tues.

    Hope you guys appreciate the effort the regulars ie cc pow jelly
    kletterer put into this 5-9 thread. I think they did a excellent job
    updating with this evolving forecast.

    You too should be commended for your effort, as well as everyone else who makes up these threads.
    JB tends to be in the conservative side I reckon.

    I certainly love the work you guys and girls put into these threads.

    Just one comment, it would be nice, for all the new people, if, once in a while, you could expand on the acronyms and terms you use. To understand the basis of the language you use is so important to overall understanding.

    Could be, and even referencing it every now and then would help newbys like me find the language.

    I'm not talking every thread have a glossary. But every now and then expand on an acronym to make it easier to find the true meaning, search for SDS on Google, where do you start.

    This @Nightskywatcher, but it needs updating.
    And btw SDS = Snow Deprivation Syndrome, not a weather term really.

    SDS means Snow Deprivation Syndrome. Catch all explaination for shitpot or overly enthusiastic ski forum behaviour. Particularly prevalent From March-June.

    Not much analysis needed now. 5-10cm is the predicted total for this system. Potential for isolated totals of 10cm+, but I wouldn't be counting on that for the resorts.

    Now we move onto the next system, which is yet to be defined very well.

    It will be somewhere in the weather history. I'll see if I can find it tonight.

    IMO if it hasn't already been predicted, it will be a Baw Baw / Buller system with predominant S direction

    Yikes looks like we are in for some 'batten down the hatches' type weather over the next few days along the southern half of the east coast! Bit of Short Range Stormy S swell on the cards.....

    Thursday eve isn't looking much more than a flurry or dusting up-high at best on GFS now.
    EC says dry as a....
    BOM says no dice.
    AXS says not a chance.

    @1030hPa, that's a 0cm from me.
