    Strong push from the South. Match that deep layer Shear with a moist atmosphere - and - 10 at 700hPa and you have potential. Im not currently convinced with the progression atm though. Wait and see what the Major Models throw at us.

    EC looks better ATM, but they both have the ridge.

    The improving trend is there on EC:


    Well supported by GFS this morning:


    All about timing with this one as some prefrontal is looking likely, 5-20cm with the potential of a good follow up fall on the 21st IMO.

    EC has quite the conveyor belt type set-up.
    First system on the 18th/19th:

    Second system on the 21st:

    Third system on the 22nd/23rd:


    We shall have to wait and see how that pans out for it.
    EPS is backing systems on the 19th and 21st.

    Yep the 21st and 22nd pack a punch on 12z.
    I’d expect a downgrade.

    I’d say 5-15mm and 5-15cm for the 18th and 19th event.

    If the charts come off like the ensembles are suggesting. Buller will be wet... sorry.
    IMO looks like a zonal westerly setup with a potential of marginal temps

    00Z GFS upgraded for Sunday-Tuesday. Perhaps a little pre-frontal on Sunday, but not much IMO.

    But the catch is that the 21st and 22nd are ridged out nearly, with only some snow showers getting through.

    EC looks much better today on 00Z, that West Oz peaker is ridging Eastwards, our way.
    Breaking wave nearer the Bight. Low to the West of Tas. Just needs a touch more West Oz ridge.

    EC & TWC shake hands @ 00z.





    Realistically, for the big 5, IMO I think Sunday/Monday holds ~10mm prefrontal Sunday night, lowering from 1900m to 1600m by midnight.
    5-20cm of new snow by Monday morning above 1400m.

    EDIT:10-20mm of prefrontal rain.
