    Am concerned about wind on saturday. Not for lifts, not really required, but for a clear road to Hotham. Omeo side. Tambo valley trees. Have packed 2 chainsaws. Going to be a cold one in the tent this weekend.
    I predict the harrietteville side a 90percent chance of being closed sat night throught to late Sunday.
    Reckon about 40cm myself.

    And the animated version. Still pulling in plenty of Southern Feed.

    Although it looks like the Northern Feed is wrapping around, but lagging. Any of the gurus care to comment.

    Camp at jb plain near the road/dp. Not looking forward to setting up the tent tomorrow evening in this wind! Always the dirty hut for shelter though.

    Take lots of firewood, none there earlier this week. Also, when I headed up on Tuesday night this week, they hadn't plowed the car park yet, took them till Wednesday afternoon.

    Looks like that low off WA is feeding some nice moisture, into the back of this front. Should help the moisture linger.

    Hi res model doesn't show 850 hPa temps < 0 in Victoria until tomorrow lunchtime. The low will draw warmer air from the south in typical clockwise fashion.

    Temps will be much older near ACT/ NSW Alps for most of the weekend.

    Does Monday NSW look like having less blizzard conditions than Sunday - which appears to be quite challenging at least in the morning.

    Its now only 1 at Orange with precipitation so i'd say freeze around 1100m. Snow to 900m ish. Looks to be on and off as moistures comes and goes till early monday. Keep an eye on the clouds on the sat pic for best estimate of timing. The stuff around Adelaide now is what will track up that way over the next 30 hrs.

    IMO 30cm is likely for Lake Mountain / Baw Baw by Monday afternoon. Buller a bit less and Falls / Hotham would be lucky to see more than 15cm today.

    This thread finishes tomorrow, but the snow doesn't. So is someone starting a new thread or extending this one?

    @Claude Cat. I cannot create a thread with a Predictions Prefix. Wouldn't mind talking about the Triple Header headed in between 4th and 9th July.

    Any updated predictions for tomorrow and Tuesday? Much more snow tonight? Is it likely to warm too much Tuesday and cause the snow to go off?

    Can't see much more than 5cm in it.
    Doubt temps will be an issue.
