    Crookwell Saturday AM is a decent chance IMO.

    There are closer spots around Southern Highlands (Berrima, Oxley Hill etc.) with half a chance but they're semi tucked in the rain shadow of ST's. So drier.
    Better chance in the STs I'd reckon.

    This.
    Though they will shut the roads (even Hume) if it gets a bit heavy.
    The road working North from Crookwell normally sees some snow.

    Is this the July 'Beast' arriving a week and more late? This image from the Melbourne and Vic weather thread with the bullish looking beast highlighted using Photoshop. I see an eye there...

    So, important (for me) question: Am I going to need chains to get out of Thredbo on Sunday afternoon?

    Ensembles indicating a second dip is a real possibility, next week.
    Likely to be a sustained period of -'ve SAM, yet.

    I just did and loved the snow.
    Only thing making me feel slightly better as I sit at my desk in Melbourne is knowing that line for Tyrol T must suck.

    I reckon it will be Buller’s busiest weekend this season so far.
    So much hype.

    For a Friday yeah, but likely due to much wind hold up top so may ease as wind drops.
    And seeing snow on cams so maybe more lifts to open.

    There's a thread up for it @Jwintermix
    It's looking a little like an early peaker + ridging clipper. Still likely to have 5-15cm at the moment.
     
  23. ok can you move the post.

    No, snow floats - it's small & light so travels with wind, not static like us who 'feel' the wind chill and act in resistance to it's force.
    Wind chill is a scientific value for humans exclusively.

I truely miss the simple days of just bugging out of town on a PREDICTION. Hard to do from Brisbane (did I escape a ‘stay on topic’ sanction?)

    In terms of our next potential snow-bearing system, I am thinking 25th to the 29th/30th of August.
    Could be the possible apex system. Something to watch.

    Next LWT node due 26th-28th of August.

    I am seeing another warming pulse in the Southern Polar Vort, another disruption to the AAO circulation. Hence the secondary dip in the next week to 10 days.
    I am inclined to see it slow things up a bit and push through our region 29th August - 1st Sep. Mightn't be as strong as what we've just seen, but it's definitely already presenting itself.

    EC Ensembles this morning pointing to a big follow up pulse ~22/23rd, to the marginal stuff next week.

    GFS 06Z really manhandles that ridge from 19-24th... Signal showing for the 23rd.
    Same trailing High as the one backing the system on the 19th, just on the rollback:
