    What happens after 9:30 pm to make it more likely to snow?

    Marginal until upper level temps ramp up.
    They're on their way (9:30pm below). The lower atmosphere will remain similar so given it's -2C/-3C at ~1400m, and FL ~1000m it might snow but it'll be wet/wintry mix until the upper level cold pool moves in ~6pm (below). You'll want sub -25C @ 500mb to see genuine snow fall to around 600m (when Freeze Level is ~1000m) IMO.

    I’m predicting that it will be interesting to watch the Canberra footy tonight as with the temp dropping and a few shower trains running through it could be another first for a AFL game in snow?

    Should be getting close to seeing snow above 550m, at the moment, for the Strzeleckis, I'd say.
    Right through until 4am tomorrow, then another chance Sunday.

    Would come through final QTR if it was to happen IMO.
    10pm is the sweet spot for flurries/wintery mix to 600m in the area.

    Problem is... not much moisture in the lee of the Brindies.

    Hey POW, question does ‘feels like’ temp have a bearing? So with wind chill does that lower the formation of snow?

    Lots of snow on the ranges in Canberra and in a lot of places not normally seen, well to the north of Coree looks like a good cover. Snow also looks like it extends to the nearer ranges as well.

    I think there’s a good chance of some reported snowfalls in Melbourne suburbs tomorrow morning IMO.
    -5C @850mb says to me just add some instability and you could see (wintery mix) falls as low as 200-300m ASL.

    Yeah it looks very cold! Hopefully there’s enough shower activity pushing through to put a bit of a cover on the ground.

    Snowy games have occurred before in Canberra. Pity we are not playing the Cowboys or Broncos.

    Interesting blob of moisture heading from Canberra towards Goulburn and the Highlands, with temps looking good.

    For us history buffs, what does this system compare to in the past? Is it a 2,5 10 year thing?

    1 in 10-15 year event IMO.
    Whilst late May’s falls were a 1 in 20 year event.

    Not bhed, considering they form two of the 3 ‘major falls’ this season.

    EDIT: meant it ain't 'easy' aspect to guess.
