    GFS continuing to support the 8/9th July signal.
    EC Ensembles doesn't want a bar of it.

    GFS going for a double dipping.
    Watch that 9-11th period grow over the next few runs.

    I'm inbound for Charlotte Pass this weekend for a coupla weeks. Reckon a decent 30 cm will open up quite a bit of their territory if the base persists. This week's system might not get there moisture wise (though if enough wind the CP bowl might catch a bit of Main Range drift I'm hoping). The 8-9 July system, mid way through the school holidays would be most appreciated.

    You can imagine it being a cut-off at this point. Plenty projection North if that trailing, sub-polar High is anything to go by.

    with a nearly cooked early season - I'm glad there's hope of a double dip to save it yet.

    machine snow in the Pvf terrain park today was nearly as good as Friday's.

    GFS showing a big signal for a cold outbreak 14/15th of July.

    There’s a good chance AAO/SAM still could be in that negative phase but we wouldn’t won’t much of a change to its trend if it’s to remain strong.

    Yes, saw that over the weekend too. Sent them feedback via the app and Google Play. Also didn't list Thredbo.

    It’s a case of squeaky wheel gets the oil. We encourage everyone her to log feedback with the BOM on this.

    I do find these forums of the most upmost enjoyment whilst building a sense of positive apprehension. If I just relied on the 4 Day BOM charts, it would be like playing a One Armed Bandit (remember those) and gambling on whether we would have snow at short range. Instead, when I see these rolling updates from people as learned as POW, it settles my wait for the obvious "will it / will it not snow" when we spend all of our cash for the 2nd week of school holidays. So - I am watching this 14/15th Node -- Intently !

    Thoughts on MJO firing up in the next few weeks after a decent hiatus?
    It seems we're reliant on PW/RW at the moment.

    little cold now at the valley. Had our first wind blown day early on. But doesnt want to blow around anymore despite wind chill being solid. Flat light now as clouds start building. Can’t see it clearing at this point this arvo. Incoming!

    Don't think we will see any strong mjo signals until mid to latter next month. They tend to ramp up around the lead in to the wpac's prime typhoons months. You and jellybeans would have just as much idea as me atm.

    I've not got a good feeling about this from a Charlotte Pass perspective at the moment. They've lost a bit with the rain and this current system doesn't look like it will be enough to fill in the terrain to get the lifts happening :(

    What, to see people with their 2wd without chains who don't know how to drive on snow and ice spinning their wheels trying to go up hill. I've seen this, and thinking "don't do that anywhere near my car"

    Hopefully they are not from the lockdown suburbs.

    Donna Buang is boganville after a dump with snow wannabies - it's sad but true.

    Having said that, if there is sizable snow to 800m, Donna Buang might have a decent amount of snow on it for a day or two.

    Mt. Margaret is more low key than Mt. DB .It would be my pick of snow play places if I was not a skier.
    Fri.week ( July 10 th ) according some forecasting models could bring snow to Mt DB and other places such as Lake Mt. and Mt. Stirling. We shall wait and see :).

    I love weatherzone lol

    “There is a high level of model disagreement during the second week of the fortnight, but it’s looking like some snow is possible most days”

    Now to wait for Pow to deliver the good/bad news...

    EC suggests every flake that falls this week/weekend is gonna be washed away.... if you choose to believe that scenario at 10 days out...
