2mm ice on bird bath this morning at Exeter.
Hullo, I'm Miles Peachfield (Unstable on Weatherzone), author of the website South Australian Snow http://sasnows.com
The weather system currently traversing southern South Australia does have some potential for getting snowflakes to tiny areas of land in southern South Australia. The first image below is the gfs snow level chart I saved on Saturday evening (yesterday 17th) for 930pm central standard time Sunday 18th today. It does suggest possible snow showers (or mixed salad showers including snowflakes) on the highest ground including (and perhaps confined to) the peaks and vicinity of Mt Lofty in the south and Mt Bryan in the Mid-North. I couldn't find any reference to snow in the Weather Bureau's forecasts issued yesterday evening when I checked them last night, nor could I find any snow pixel in SA on MetEye when I checked early this morning. And as usual, an unknown is whether we get suitable passing snowflake-making shower clouds. The second image below is the gfs mean sea level pressure chart for 930pm Sunday (as it was on Saturday night when I saved the image).
It's like we don't exist
They gave us a sheep graziers warning as a consolation
I also observed last weekend they only forecast the potential for snow on lofty at very last minute when the gurus on here knew a week in advance.
Post your charts on the 'predictions' thread, the guys on there will give it some interest. They will also be keen to hear from a weatherzone guy and a South Australian snow expert
+1 reports having a lovely time in the garden at Exeter then being slammed with a quick but intense hail storm. You can see the hail in the pic.
Was only 1.3 at 4pm on mount lofty with good precipitation.
Was anyone up there then?
On a Sunday a bunch of folks but not me.
There used to be a webcam there, is it still a thing?
10 1/2 mls of rain to this am at Exeter.
Garden needed it.
Thanks for commenting Adelaidometer and I'll take up your suggestion to post charts on the predictions thread next time. I haven't even explored the ski forums so far - simply plonked my first post here
There were some people there, and there were a few fairly brief snow showers towards the end of hail showers. The snowflakes apparently melted quickly but hail falling mostly earlier in the afternoon formed a continuous carpet on the ground.
No such luck - wish there was!
