This is a FANTASTIC book! Many images are both astonishing and unbelievable.
Makes you believe in God. He's (or she's) high as a kite on acid dreaming up all these weird and wonderful shapes.
Far kurnell Craig!
This could be the biggest storm in a very long time and looks like fairly low freezing levels to come with it.
Hope you're staying on the mountain because all roads will be a SH#$fight come Monday morning!
@Claude Cat how are you seeing things panning out for the weekend based off this morning's 12UTC runs?
IMO Snow showers today, becoming heavy snow over night thinning out during Saturday before becoming heavy right through Sunday into early Monday.
Hard to see anything less than 60cm (worst case) to come, probably a fair bit more.
By Monday morning we should have close to 1m of snow out of the whole system in places.
Jane is all in
I'm also surprised some clown hasn't come out with a storm name for this beast
NOTE: Please do not start thinking of names now or you will be banned from this forum forever
It'll be interesting to see how this coming weekend pans out compared to other big events in the early 2000s. Namely late-May 2000, Mid-August 2001, and late-July 2003.
Has the fact that there is a separate thread dedicated to naming this storm escaped you?
Just weekend dash for me, hoping Sunday drive out isn't too bad!
Also Late August 2010 rings a bell @Hermon I think that was in the vicinity of between 50-100cm
stay on topic.
The meteograms are enough to make any skier's knees weaken. This is fully locked in - expect not much else other than this, any model changes will be insignificant to what's about to fall.
IMO Saturday AM looks amazing if you're skiing in the majors - up there with one of the days of the season (on top of everyday next week), if you ask me.
The one system to unite them all.
Seems about right to me.

Pretty hard to go wrong with 60-110cm. Wide margin there (understandably so).
I find it odd that the bom alpine forecast has 15-40mm for Sunday. I would have thought 15mm, or even 25mm could not be sustained on the available charts we've all seen. Let's wait for the arvo update I suppose.....
Doesn't correlate with their published precip map figures either. As you say, I think they'll juice it up going into the weekend.
The afternoon updates seem more realistic. The morning ones just seem to be automated.
I think that's quite reasonable.
For example I would expect Buller to be in the low end of that scale, with the other majors at the other end of that scale (especially Perisher).
You know youve got an event when ' two foot storm' tm is at the minimum end of the range.
Yep, Perisher always does very well being at the northern end of the range when we get these W/NW systems and also Selwyn when the freeze levels are low enough
I think it was jane who recently told us the arvo update is the main one.
I predict I am very excited by this!! But a little anxious about driving into Thredbo Sunday arvo...
I predict I will be taking it very easy!
I'm looking forward to the driving as much as the skiing.
I predict low range 2nd gear be club of choice.
Very tidy. Interesting progression with that little low in Bass strait . Pretty much a cutoff
A Ben Lommond special Sunday, Baw Baw special Monday.
Chuck in the Satellite for backup.
Is that sliding with more falling Sunday night now instead of Sunday morning?
Kicks off around ~4am Sunday, continuous until Monday lunchtime.
GFS 00Z Looking colder again for Sunday (over a broader area too). Snow possible to 700m IMO - which puts Cooma to Jindy access past Berridale under some stress. I'd be carrying chains from Cooma foshorrr for Sunday PM!
GFS also going for snow as far North as Northern Tablelands (Barrington Tops and Willi Willi) on Monday.
Is 100cm+ in a 24 hour period around Sunday pretty much locked and loaded for Perisher?
haha. very ambitious to use 100cm with the phrase 'locked and loaded' under any circumstances
Try again ALDIbro.
Image not working.
Image no show HI!!
IMO that would be best - best case.
More likely to see figures from 60-80cm based upon current projections IMO.
odd, hotlinking wz has been working
its not working on wz either
Low centered over Tassie = absolutely perfect position and hence one of the reasons why we are looking at such a mega dump
Concur. Hook not perfectly positioned Sunday.
65cm for mine.
Boy oh boy, wowee.
That's a tidy looking chart if ever I saw one.
I love the way it's picking up Macedon and the associated r**n shadow behind as well. Neat.
Could even be worth a little drive up there on Sunday for a look.
Minty as it gets here. I predict an interesting drive to Thredbo tonight. Chainsaw in the back of the Hilux just in case.
