    Here's a bunch of the relevant links I've bookmarked from these pages over the years.

    Of course you'll need to customise them to suit your specific purpose.

    This is Yr.No , a Norwegian forecast based on the ECMWF modelling .
    It is a simple go-to and pretty accurate if you're after a quick click.

    http://www.yr.no/place/Australia/New_South_Wales/Perisher_Village/

    Here another easy read from BOM . AXS-R & AXS-G models .
    User friendly , just hit play and you get a fair idea of what is likely.
    http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/cha...EDT&area=Au&model=CG&chartSubmit=Refresh+View

    @Claude Cat fave go to here.
    I has GFS , CMA , ECMWF, Gem and JMA so all the best of in one. (Pick and choose to compare).
    http://www.tropicaltidbits.com/anal..._frzn&runtime=2015042118&fh=6&xpos=0&ypos=581

    Similiar one from the UK.
    http://www.weatheronline.co.uk/cgi-...&VAR=t85p&HH=168&ARCHIV=0&ZOOM=0&PERIOD=&WMO=

    Again another from the US
    http://www.pivotalweather.com/model.php?m=gfs&p=sfcwind_mslp&rh=2016091400&fh=0&r=au&dpdt=

    Stormcast is really handy as it has few other features , for you guessed it ...., which are easier to access than may be on the other models above.
    http://forecasts.bsch.com.au/stormcast.html

    The "famous Spaghetti plot".
    An animated prediction of the state of the Southern Polar circulation

    http://www.esrl.noaa.gov/psd/map/images/ens/spag_f000_sh.html

    A great explantion from @Gerg of the Spag plot.
    http://gergs.net/2014/06/reading-spaghetti-plot/

    This one is part of @Vermillion quiver he shared a while back , a good companion to Spag.
    Bit easier to read at times.
    http://www.atmos.washington.edu/~hakim/tropo_sh/trop_theta_sh.html

    Here's the latest good thing that @jeffx shared last week.
    A really great user friendly one stop shop for myself and I'm sure a few of us here.
    Plenty of bells and whistles when you spend some time to play.
    https://www.ventusky.com/?p=-30.2;127.7;3&l=gust&t=20161011/18&w=0QEQYp_5B

    This another of mine fave quick go-to for , arguably , accurate live info from the hill.
    Add this and Thredbo together , divide by 2 and you'll be a bit closer onto it than the daily reports from the Resorts.IMO.
    http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDN60903/IDN60903.94915.shtml

    I have a bunch of others that I look up at times to learn what is being talked about here.
    Bom Glossary is a starting point.
    http://www.bom.gov.au/lam/glossary/?ref=ftr
    or the US National Weather Service
    http://w1.weather.gov/glossary/

    If you really want to confuse your-self this will get you scratching your head but has a lot of actual / "live " - ish info.
    Aerological diagrams
    http://www.bom.gov.au/aviation/observations/aerological-diagrams/

    I've tried quote those that have shown me / us the links they have shared over the last 10 years or so.
    Many thanks to all who contribute here.
    Hope this helps others as it has helped me.

    Meteocentre.com, a Canadian and Anglo based suit, but it has Southern Hemisphere charts with 850mb temps to put things into perspective freezing wise, and a bunch more charts, a lot of them are for aviation

    Couple more I look at every day , not just for snow but general weather watching.

    Based upon the UK Met Office Unified Model system.

    Has been pretty reliable this year Access-R , as it is only 3-days out.
    http://www.weatherzone.com.au/models/?mt=accessr&mc=mslp&mh=36&mso=0&lt=wzcountry&lc=aus

    Longer term / less reliable Access-G models to 240hrs
    http://www.weatherzone.com.au/models/?lt=wzcountry&lc=aus&mt=accessg.

    Look up wind , precip 850 , 500 levels in drop down box.
    Same for time.
    Can also zoom in on State view.

    Explanation and links to Verifcation of NWP models...

    Here is a verification of all the models. 1 is the best and 0.3 is the worst for the top chart. Bottom chart is differences with GFS which just makes things more confusing. Should Update...
    [​IMG]
    GFS is black, US model up to 16 days
    ECMWF is Red, European model up to 10 days
    UKMO is Green, UK model (also ACCESS) up to 6 days I think
    GEM is Blue, Canadian model up to 10 days
    NAVGEM is Yellow, US Navy model up to 10 days

    CDAS is essentially a model from the US that uses tech and knowledge from pre1996, often called Legacy GFS.

    To group them
    EC and UKMO are probably the best
    GEM and GFS are in the second accuracy bracket
    JMA and NAVGEM are the worst of the models

    Simples.

    Source: http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/gmb/STATS/html/new_aczhist.html
    Add in this for 31 day verifications.
    http://www.emc.ncep.noaa.gov/gmb/STATS/html/acz6.html
    And this for acronyms

    EC always is the best @500mb verification, is all that plot shows.

    Another very handy resource I found just now ( couldn't stand watching Parra flog Penny Panthers any more)
    Explains a lot of what get's kicked around in the weather threads by jwx , pow , jelly , cc, verm and co.
    Most everything in here I found really informative.
    Essential reading if you want to add to understanding.

    Also Pete the Frog's Snowatch at WWW.snowwatch.com.au

    A number of years ago I used to look at a site that had a 3D model of each Austrlian ski resort showing snow levels on the model for each day. Can't find it anywhere now. Can anyone direct me to the web site or has it been discontinued?

    Welcome back Keith!
    Sorry I wouldn't know what that website is. Never seen it in my life. But I am sure somebody here would know?

    But if you wanted snow levels, you can join our weather community here and read about all the different opinions on snow forecasts. I don't think many people here read the Snowatch forecast, due to a bit of a backstory...

    Falls ck. Balcony Cam seems to provide the information.....everything would appear to be of less importance!!!

    I think that's Cedarwood Cam with its table and bicycle ensemble!

    Not sure if jellybeans has post this link already in another thread.
    http://wx.graphics/models/ecmwf/ecmwf.php

    Atm they are free to the public both EC/GFS on the link.Basically they are ryan maue plots. Weatherbell was once a free to public-- models weather site before ryan's models. With these plots now @ weather us models not expecting it to stay tree for long.

    No I haven't.... was waiting for you actually.

    This is a very big deal, free access EC data available to the public. Yes Windy and the weather.us main site have had it for a while. But these are the best charts available on the net. I don't agree with Ryan on many issues, but I thank him for making this public. He has GFS, UKMET, EC and HRRR atm. I believe ICON and ACCESS are on order.

    FYI jwx, people who are close to Ryan and his new co have said that these charts will be free and available to the public forever. But some of the more complex things like soundings, ensembles, monthlies and experimental models will be paid. I don't know all the details, but we will all know soon enough. I believe EC snow plots are next.

    Ian doesn't, the other guy seems to know what he's talking about.
    I watched one Joe B vid and that was it. He is a little annoying TBH. It's also annoying because American weather forums I am on seem to treat the guy as more than he is..... Ryan was the only real talent wxbell had.
