    Well, compared to watching big jellyfish highs for the past month, it's wonderful to be arguing whether we have 1 big snow system or 3-4 little ones :)

    Well said.

    I've got skin in the game on this one. The crew is booking to slide Thursday. Unfortunately I wont be with them. Business is too slow.

    Hi POW, normally I agree... but the first shift of the system is hard to pick so my main OB is to give credit to The, who had picked it.

    Once the rotation establishes itself, picking front for front is fairly easy. Its the shift that matters..

    We know that Early winter rotation runs at 5.5 weeks in a good early season and then hits 5 weeks for early July BUT the big stuff hits when the lows start lapping AA at 4.5 to 4 weeks.

    Weather forced gravitational waves?

    Its the rotation speed that matters IMO

    Starting to see a maybe possible good thing for early July , somewhere 3rd to 6th. Along way off I know and I will leave it to the better credentialed people but........................it always pays to be positive. Maybe it will become a thing , maybe not.


    So hoping next week comes off. I have always been positive about it , old man farmers eye LOLLOLLOLLOL

    EC 00Z throwing it all on black for the 9th with a ball-tearer snow-mageddon. Big upgrade and the Southerly door is wide open if it verifies.

    Yep! Forsure, it's nothing new but it's starting to fall into place - even since this AM's run.

    Yep, starting to look like something like a decent snowfall is brewing for all of next week .Perfect timing for Vic school holidays.I will stick to my earlier prediction of 25-40cm.
    BOM still hedging their bets with a wimpy 9 cm to 49 cm forecast for Hotham

    Good precip. But if I am to be critical the pressure could be better.

    Hypothetically, if this front (not the node, not the week, not the 4-dayer) was inbound today, we'd looking at solid totals.

    I'm running 85cents by Friday.

    3 separate settling periods of 30cm followed by 10cent of dry dry. IMO.... Its a 7 day base builder so go to resorts that can consolidate a good base, including link trails.

    Both GFS & The Canuck currently have much more ridge influence for the moment, for the 9th/10th.

    Setup leading up to 9th looks lacklustre IMO.

    I think we've extended the range of the thread

    (As I'm inclined to think is appropriate - but I get the opposing argument)

    GFS isn't exactly on board yet. It has the sub-trop jet pushing it through as clipper. I reckon it'll come around to meet EC tomorrow.

    WSo I have spotted four different nodes over the Monday to Saturday period. Here are the two that apply to this period.


    The Monday system, relatively weak.
    Tuesday, the node moves away...

    Tues night into Wednesday, second node moves in, much stronger than the last...
    [​IMG]
    EC still consistent with 30cm for this period.
    Will continue with other two nodes in other thread.

    I don't have a reputation to look after so I can afford to call it early. Still got my money in for 20 - 30 , maybe more , wont be less. Best thing is it looks like its opening the door for others to follow on its heels so maybe when its all said and done .....60 -80 for the week. Result in anyone's language.

    For records sake, here's Tuesday's vibe... Admittingly the temps look a little better by Tuesday AM.
    Monday is still dicey below 1700m IMO.

    :) Wasn't having a crack at anyone , I think you all do some great work and most of you know your biscuits with this stuff which is good for the rest of us. Some of you have different aspects you feel are primo , put it all together and voila....... we all get educated. I can sniff moisture at 10000k but temps etc , na I got no clue about that stuff. Speaking of temps ............-1.2 in my machinery shed right now. Gunna get cold tonight

    Predicting for this period, not concerned about pre frontal as moisture seems very low and temps get cold enough before a small amount of moisture hits the mountains. 10-20 cm at best by July 5
