    Looking best for Selwyn at the moment IMO. Then Perisher / Threbdo, then Vic majors.

    I predict I'm going to the snow for a day this week, but given the choice between tomorrow [Wednesday] or Friday, at Mt Buller, what would be the preference for those who can read the charts far better than I can? Priority is good snow, wind and fog I can deal with.

    I expect the fog to prevail till it turns NW.
    Penciled Wed Thurs in hoping there is enough to stay in the tree line.

    • Temps Excellent
    • Wind not too windy
    • Low Pressure low
    • A wee bit cut off but connected to the main cold pool.
    • This looks pretty good just wondering when it will clear
    • I think could for 20 to 40 cm main range.

    Not really cut-off for mine, but the low is fraction further north than optimal. Looks good for NSW

    I used the word wee bit.

    This system is good for aspects that don't face east. Opens up a lot of possibilities.

    Pushing way harder into SA than optimal.

    Weatherzone going for 5cm for Buller tomorrow

    What are people's thoughts, on the money or can Buller expect more?

    You can also see how the moisture spins around central Victoria and why NSW will do well, while southern Vic will not IMO.

    I figure so, more yass/gunning than southern highlands though.

    Wish their trends had been upgrades over the past few days. Looking like a nice top up but no big accumulation.

    The charts we have been looking at are predictions have a look at the actual front passing over SA on the radar is it travelling to far north maybe not.

    I reckon maybe a 40% chance that some of the lower portion will get pushed down into Victoria.

    No really big rain events anywhere to ruin what has fallen yet.

    I'm sorry.. But I'm seeing nothing but an upgrade on the charts.

    I'm prepared to call 25+cm for NSW. A little less for VIC.

    Just looking at the radar, it could mostly fly north for only 5-10.
    I think the high should push it down and much higher falls i would think. IMO

    5-15 i reckon.
    it's a hard one though not a dud.
    It's looked like not being a direct hit for a good 3 days.

    The last two days suggested lower moisture levels than originally suggested, but given the erratic nature of so many of our systems & this one in particular Im putting on optimistic glasses that may yet get a pleasant fall. Snowing nicely @ Petisher after a light start at 9 am

    So far the only place that seems to be reporting anything of note is Selwyn " dumping down" is the term used. This fits with the northerly aspect to this front that was predicted earlier ion the week.

    Sticking to the #4dayrule it's gone about as I expected. Maybe 5cm unders over the 3 day event duration.
