    yep wind and bogong dont mix.
    I was up there in summer years ago and a front came in and turned to snow and blizzard overnight..
    One of the guys i was leading off the summit in that had his cheapo waterproof overpants literaly blown off him. Someone else that day got lost and a rescue party including some guy on a horse was up there , apparently the horse got blown over at one point ..
    yikes.

    Off topic, but this. Super dangerous.

    Ski touring is a spring thing.

    It's a wacky one.
    Another weakening front...to cut off this time.
    Another 5-10cm I reckon. Teeny bit of rain before maybe.

    Certainly not as clear cut as last night. Wouldn't be confident to call it until after the event.

    I would say "watch this space"... ECL for the south east on Monday. ECL's always mess with the models mojo.

    Over the years, we have seen a good ECL leads into a solid conveyor event within 5 to 10 days later. It doesn't happen with every ECL but this season has been unpredictable over the mid to longer range and the ECL's have been few and far between.

    So personally, I'm liking the idea of a good ECL to shake up the mix.

    And quite often you get a little wedge of high pressure deflecting fronts qway if the ecl stalls in the tasman.
    Heads or tails!

    EC likes Monday for 10-15cm for NSW Resorts. VIC a dusting at best.


    And the EC setup... very juicy low developing, looks to intensify a fair bit in the Tasman. I am guessing the very warm anomalies in the Tasman might have something to do with it. But should give NSW a lot of rainfall and the resorts a nice topup.

    Wind will quiet down early Sunday morning. Probably a bit of rain. I personally wouldn't want to go skiing on either day of this weekend.

    I'm agnostic on this one. These systems are notoriously touch and go
