    Looking much better for my Buller trip next weekend on tonights runs. At least any rain will be colder so not too much melt I hope.

    Yep I agree

    When there is a NW breeze at perisher its terrifying at 7000 ft. Its like crazy. Then you go back down to resort level and its tranquil again.

    Rams Head can be a bit full on in SE wind.

    Don't get too carried away - if you read the detailed forecast for Perisher this becomes "2-7 cm by Wednesday". Then rain/snow for Thursday. So treat Mountainwatch with some caution...

    Sorry guys, just don't see it. Both 850 and Upper temps are marginal at best. Snow up high only. imo

    [​IMG]

    And this is moisture for Mon-Tues. Looks like a significant amount of liquid snow falling, especially in NSW. imo

    Just calling it as I see it from the charts. :(

    Temps look good enough for snow. But moisture only in Vic. imo.

    But it's a long way out.

    Perisher might be ok. Mon-Tues. Temps are marginal. But flow looks from WNW. Which could be a problem. It really is a coin toss. imo.

    Ok ..... So when do I see the end to the warm and r##n. Here's the Upper Layer temps from Weds to Thurs.

    The Greenish area is the cold pool. And it looks to be moving in late Weds.

    Till then. Snow levels will remain quite high, and wet snow and r##n will persist. IMO.

    This is the moisture from now till Thurs morning. So still a bit of wet to come.

    But we should get some snow top up for the weekend. IMO.

    CC - this thread needs a date extension & should be renamed either 'Sweet Pineapple Sorbet', or 'The Day After Tomorrow'. This is one of those systems which is full of surprises.

    Potential for a wet 'inbetween' is still really high imo.
    Now and End looks ok, possible bit of Too Warm in between imo.
    Either way a good result all things considered.

    break even or small net gain (for this week) is a fantastic result considering how this was looking going into the weekend. Something brewing for Tuesday that looks better on EC. For another thread though.

    Perhaps bluebird was over the top. Sunny breaks. Especially in NSW.
