Weekend was great. Still some snow to come from this event. Season is hanging in there so far.
In reality we've had 1 rain event (given today is panning out better than expected). Everything else has been snow and on a few occasions to very low levels. And we're only just into August.
Looks like some pretty good weather for snow-making as the week progresses.
As for the 500 HPa ridge in the midst of a strong -ve AAO: I tend to think of it as the atmosphere trying to equalize things as cold air moves North, it has to return South to balance things out. And unfortunately it looks like we're in the wrong location...
Interesting Wednesday forecast for NSW snowy mountains on BOM website. 30% at 1800, 20% at 1400, 50% at 1000m.
Make sure you hang low guys!
Now that's an inversion!
Not a skerrick for Vicco after tomorrow AM.
One rain event? You could get a job working for resort management!
Tell me another significant rain event outside of Friday week ago?
BOM certainly running with it. This afternoon's 4 dayer has it (the high) charging even further south. The final chart (Friday 10pm) is the most unusual Australian chart I've seen for some time...
Technically correct. If I knew how I'd post the video of the creek that runs between the skitube and the base of perisher front valley raging in flood and 30 meters wide. I think they had to close the bridge for safety reasons. Never seen anything like it.
Amazingly it seems to have very little impact on the snow quality (edit : or quantity, which is even more surprising)
There's been a few. 9th - 11th July...solid rain event to name one. Pre the big cold snap. I delayed my trip by a couple of days because of it. All good...this is Aus . Anyways this is off topic...sorry
Yep. That was a significant rain event. That's the only one this season. Barely even been any prefrontal for most systems and they've been plenty cold enough until now.
A little bit of prefrontal is not a rain event.

LM and BB waving
Thursday 7 July, 27 mm rain by 9am. Thredbo Top Station. No more snow until 5 cm the following Sunday so could not be decribed as prefrontal.
Clutching at straws if you're using lake mountain or Baw Baw as examples of extreme weather events.
You say significant but mean extreme?
BTW no straws here bro
Okay that's one... Hardly significant though.
No in mean significant. Rain at lake mountain or Baw Baw is no significant. It happens multiple times every season.
About half our systems ever in history agree.
Anyways let's get back to mountain obs.
Anyone got any?
Edit; or predictions....got lost in the OT
Not much happening at DP .. Rain has stopped edit.. Slowed down a lot is more accurate
Edit 2 sorry obs
Tuesday before rain event at perisher, Perisher picked up 2-3 inches as well, It left scouring on the main range. That's was an event. Today was a now show.
Just to be clear here mick and plow ......I didn't and most very likely will never use LM or BB as examples of extreme weather events.
They are your words mick.[/QUOTE].
Rained in school holidays starting around 6th through to 11th July. Up to 40mm for all majors. 80mm for Baw Baw. Rain is rain. Your first statement there has only been "one" rain event. There has been a few this season, some heavier than others. It is what it is...
Forecast wind has REDUCED as the high pressure system strengthens and pushes the low outwards. Looking at 15 - 25km/hrs over the next two days for Falls Creek (was 35 - 50). Nothing much left in terms of snow left in this one but good weather later this week ensues.
Good, southerly no good, blow snow off mountain.. I predict bluebird days and groomer is where it's at (would've preferred earlier predictions for this thread coming true though)
Stay on topic. Predictions only. Sheesh...
Anyone predict snow tonight in NE? I predict a few snow showers based on obs
Bom forecast for Perisher says chance of snow tonight and tomorrow morning. Had some light snow this morning and a few heavier snow showers late this arvo.
