    Best snow forecaster, caveats.
    Always bullish. Too definitive.

    Decaying fronts.
    Up to 25cm for the period with some falling as rain in for mine.

    Sorry CC: this is forecast related.

    I note the 4:20 updates haven't been updated in Vic. 'We' are usually later than NSW but this looks it might be related to the planned strike action I heard about during the week - at the BOM?

    This period looks pretty good IMO.

    Steady accumulations all week, wandering cold pools. Than bang bang.

    Jane was spot on for Sunday (5-10cm) - and still liking the rest of this week (and acknowledging a bit of early r**n on some days).

    Here's hoping this eventuates too :)

    That low south of the Bight on Friday is a brute. 944 hPa at the centre! Perth is expecting a shellacking as it comes through, and I think next weekend will be very interesting up on the big hills.

    IMO 15cm for Tues/Weds and the same again for Friday, so it hasn't changed that much since I looked a couple of days ago.
    Sunday is looking dangerous, though.

    Thought that must be the worry, thanks mick. A tad too warm, again, perhaps? Hope not.

    5-10cm for Thurs/Fri system
    A lot of rain and 5cm for Sat/Sun system.

    out of this date range, but substantially wet below 1800m early, but snow level drops late morning. IMO

    I was also thinking of heading down Sunday, with the hope of some fresh on Monday (chuck a snowie)
    Jane has 15 to 25cm in her forecast
    Others seem to indicate rain followed by circa 5cm.
    Is this system worth another thread or am I clutching at straws?

    (ps very long time reader of these forums... Love the Knowledge floating around)
