    This is looking like another promising period.

    Too early to make any serious calls on this, but I think this lines up with donza's spag charts posted earlier this week.

    Thats a big blob of moisture on the 2/8 chart and a serious fetch heading towards Radelaide.
    Like the position of the high below WA also.

    Does have some promise and I like the position of the trailing high, but having 2 strong highs either side worries me and it could easily ridge hard and push the L south. Still, definitely one to keep an eye on....

    This system looks very fine indeed this morning on GFS. Two weekends in a row?

    Looks good this morning on Access-G, another classic cold front. Steady as she goes. GFS looks a bit flat but still cold enough IMO.

    Still early days and a week out, but good to see some consensus so far out.

    Looks like it the first front will arrive Friday morning according to Weatherzone. Most likely some prefrontal to start. Dates on the thread might need to change if the other model come inline.

    My 4 yo daughter goes into ski school for the first time on Monday Aug 3. A bit conflicted, want awesome snow but don't want her ending up uncomfortable and unhappy due to a full on wind driven snowstorm. A series of cold dry 10cm clippers in each night in a southwesterly airstream followed bluebird days with a bit of wind higher up to keep filling in tracks would be nice :p

    ECM has 500hpa geopotential heights of across much of Tas +240. A little over the top maybe!

    Thredbo so should suit well, about the most protected place to start out and if this period does come up with the goods then she will see nothing but snow in the valley. Much better than rain!

    Gees we have a junior moguls event on at Perisher on 1st and 2nd. Some other years it has been cancelled due to weather. So in one way we want this and in another way we don't. Very conflicted.

    Could be in the 40cm region if it sets up like EC is showing today. 192 hours out, so big grain of salt there.
    GFS is a bit weaker - 20 to 30cm
    IMO

    Is this event really kicking off on the Thursday, or is this a separate system?
