The 2009 snow season is approaching, with what looks like the first snows of 2009 this weekend.

The Moderators in the Weather Forum always start to tighten things up at this time of year, other wise things would be chaos.

Here are the rules, in case you have forgotten them:

- The Weather Forum is to be used for weather and snowfall related topics.

- No abuse (engage the topic not the person)

- No bad language

- No misleading posts or misinformation.

- Posting statements of opinion like they are actual facts will generally be deleted. In some cases, these may be edited by moderators to include "IMO" (In My Opinion) so other people will not confuse opinion with fact

- Don't just post "wishes" or "hopes" for big dumps of snow. Unsubstantiated "predictions" are likely to attract ridicule, so it's best to explain your reasoning for a prediction.

- Don't post the same old thing in every thread. You can post predictions of big dumps or droughts if you like, but don't do it over and over. These will be deleted.

- Humour is OK, but keep on topic.

- If you have a question, do a quick check to see if there is another current thread on the same topic. If you don't, you risk splitting the discussion or getting your thread locked.

- Frivilous threads will be locked or deleted.

- No SHOUTING for the whole post. (caps lock on)

- If a newbie asks a technical question that has been asked before, do not ridicule him/her.(I'm not talking about a question like "How much snow will fall at Thredbo on the weekend") If you couldn't be bothered answering the question, don't post anything unhelpful. We were all newbies in the Weather Forum once upon a time....

- If you are posting date related threads, please adopt a standard format, including whether it's predictions or observations:

e.g.

Predictions: 5-9 August

Observations: 14-17 August


That way, it will make it easier for everyone to find what they're looking for. It also stops predictions(opinion) and observations(facts) getting mixed in the same thread.

Let's hope it's a good season!!!

I am going skiing on June 28th, will it snow?

Also will the predicted snowfall on Sunday help cool the grounds.

Also I have seen a black cockatoo and a pigmy possum, does that mean it will be a good season. John Moore said it would be good so I guess it must be.

Oh, and OMGWTF!!!!111ONEONE DID YOU SEE THE LOW COMING THIS WEEKEND IT IS GOING TO DUMP FOR SURE!!!!!

That means you all have to be nice to me. I'm always learning stuff about the weather and am currently pretty good at the obs side of things but not much good at forecasting, I am getting better though!

I will make sure I don't start any prediction threads. Every time I do that it goes pear shaped...

kidding

Let's all enjoy what will hopefully be a bumper season!!!

This is unbelievably funny weather thread!
laugh.gif
( Is THAT allowed?)

How about this:

Days 4-6 Thredbo Weather Summary: A light covering of new snow mostly falling on Mon night. Freeze-thaw conditions (max 2°C on Tue morning, min -4°C on Sun night). Winds decreasing (near gales from the W on Sun afternoon, light winds from the W by Tue morning).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Wednesday morning will be fine and sunny with a top of 36 degrees. A total fire-ban has be declared in the Kosciuszko National Park.
Thursday will be cooler with a top of -5 degrees.

Ha! How about this ( from Perisher website):

" Snow is on the way!

Get ready for a big season ahead!
The first snow of 2009 is predicted to fall this Sunday and Monday. This is a great sign so early for snow lovers. The 2009 season forecast is looking good with above average falls predicted."

NO, DON'T GO!

Go to Thredbo instead, this is what will be happening there ( apparently!) :



"Wednesday morning will be fine and sunny with a top of 36 degrees. A total fire-ban has be declared in the Kosciuszko National Park.
Thursday will be cooler with a top of -5 degrees. [/quote]

"above average falls predicted" on the Supertrail, but injuries will be light...... "

Noooooo, please

I am a very good girl! And I am always in trouble, regardless my efforts

Now, this is a valid question (is it? please, say yes
cool.gif
) :

Why, in Unysis Weather : GFS*Plots for Australia, it shows models only from "day 4" and you cannot click on daily "times" while it works for all the others regions?

Rule 12
"- If a newbie asks a technical question that has been asked before, do not ridicule him/her.(I'm not talking about a question like "How much snow will fall at Thredbo on the weekend") If you couldn't be bothered answering the question, don't post anything unhelpful.

(can be a newbie posting in Weather Forum.)

Yeah, what he means is one can be here for ages and never post once in the Weather forum. I'll be happy to give you a hand if you need it, Sara777. As are many others here I hope.
