    This is one that delivered well to Perisher, Blue Cow, Guthega, Smiggens & Charlottes. Although the snow is really wet & heavy it has been a great net gain. Precipitation is easing & all is well ATM.

    Moving northward is a good sign.

    Whole week looking good for overnight freeze/thaw.
    Southern aspects likely to be solid, anything in the sun spring-like as the day progresses.
    Worse scenarios than this.

    The freeze tonight is just what we need. Some great accumulations across Perisher and this weeks dump. will keep the mountain humming for quite some time. Looking forward to more bluebird days on great snow. :)

    Interesting mix of warm and cold pools and not all that much moisture, which is probably a good thing IMO

    EC hardly any better

    That blocking high isn't going anywhere, IMO
    GFS suggest a system around 1st September,

    I've seen the stuff on the ground before but not coming out of the sky. If that date is right I will experience something new. A bit off topic but I couldn't help myself.
