Wednesday is 600m for Southern Tablelands
700m for Thursday.
So Canberra snow very possible based on that. It’ll be cold enough, just not sure whether there will be moisture.

Just curious, where are you seeing 70-80cm?

looking at layers on WZ I'm seeing 15-20cm at MOST Thursday evening. This is accumulated rainfall between now and 7pm Fri. Of which only about 10-15mm falls from 12pm Thurs

The BOM forecast for tomorrow for the Central Tablelands includes “Snow falling above 500 metres. The chance of a thunderstorm”. That would imply snow in places like Bathurst, although the forecast there for tomorrow is for showers. Snow is forecast for Katoomba and Lithgow.

On Thursday, the snow level on the Central Tablelands rises to 800 metres.

Yes, with a min of 3 in Jamestown it definitely smells like snow is on the cards for the Flinders Ranges tonight. Snow in strange places as they say...

Was in the Gammon Ranges 2 weeks ago, and IMO Mt Mckinlay and the Blue Range will have a dusting of the white stuff now!

May I ask for those of us not not in NSW or Vic and not knowledgeable on the jargon or lingo for geographical areas what do you mean by “the OP”?
I’ve guessed ST, CT, and NT are probably souther, centra, and northern tablelands but OP still confounds me.

EC’s Ensemble prediction 00z probability of snow depth over 2cm.
same caveats that @Ken Kato would probably state about assumptions of liquid solid ratio.
I do prefer ensemble systems forecasts over deterministic for locations guidance but one needs to appreciate that ensemble stats can underestimate higher amounts.
Also sorry but no equivalent plots available as far as I know for GEFS or Access ensembles

Windy is showing snow still on the ground in the NT's over the weekend. Thoughts? I am wondering whether I should attempt to go Friday after work.
Be able to find something in the NTs possibly beyond the weekend, me thinks. At high elevation it could see out the weekend, easily with accumulations/driftsof over a foot etc

The Oberon Plateau is a large upland area in the Central Tablelands West of the Blue Mountains and South of the Great Western Highway. It’s elevation is mostly mostly in the range 1,000 - 1,200 metres with a number of high points above 1,300 metres. It is a snow magnet.

Here’s a map: https://anero.id/weather-antiquities/image.html?other/gdr/oberon_plateau.jpg
Thanks for that. I took a back road thru Blue Mountains around 7 years ago when I was south of Sydney and wanted to avoid greater Sydney and stayed in Oberon. Beautiful area.

I cannot find any specific snow depth outputs for access C on WZ or weatherwatch sites. But FWIW here is latest access C 06z accumulated precipitation to 4am Thursday. (axs c Sydney domaiin)

What about 850hPa/925hPa temp forecasts? Or snow levels?
Specifically for Tomorrow and Thurs morning.

This trough streaming up through Western Vic is the moisture injection that really gets the NT snow going.
Watch it hook in there this AM.

I must say I have held a bit of skepticism watching forecasts in the lead up as to to whether the moisture could really wrap that far around the low to feed into the NT. But the forecasts have held solid now for several days.
EC's relative IVT map (Extreme forecast index) and GFS actual IVT maps.
