These are positive signs for snowfall are they not? Perhaps a return to some snowy sustained snowy weather?It's interesting to note that the AAO is tending into the positives again. And the Eastern Inidan Ocean is decidedly warm and in the -ve IOD zone. Could be an interesting September IMO.
Can anyone offer any indication of any positive in the forecast for later in the week for Buller? I'll be there next week....... with much self chastisement and smacking self on the forehead for having pre-booked. I had naively thought mid-August should be relatively ok
I've prepared the raincoat and rubber gloves for the early part of the week, but how is the remainder of the week shaping up?
Could this kill the first few months of September? :/
Yep that is the last hurrah..has pushed out a bit but it is the return of the strongest of the LWT. @Gerg identified as his only threat to his SC calculated call.Spag plot is starting to indicate that some snow might arrive around Sept 1. The polar jet looks like it will amplify in the coming week off the WA coast into sub-tropical latitudes and when that gets unleashed and pushes the blocking high out of the way, we could be in for a good burst of Antarctic weather. Just have to sit out a possible late-August mini-heatwave in the meantime....
