Jane Bunn's Snow Forecast Discussion
Updated: Monday morning.
Monday is the last above average day, before wintry conditions return. A high is moving through.
Our next proper snowfall arrives on Tuesday as a cold front moves through. This has substantial cold air behind it, and leaves a “cold pool” over southeast Australia in its wake, lasting through to the weekend.
TUESDAY: Persistent snow from the morning in the west, the afternoon in the east.
Snow down to 1200m rapidly lowering to 900m. 5 to 10 cm of snow.
WEDNESDAY: Pre-dawn snow in the east. A generally dry day. The slight chance of light snow showers, a mix of sun and cloud.
Snow down to 900m. 0 to 2 cm of snow.
The cold pool remains overhead, while a high sits just to the west.
THURSDAY and FRIDAY: Generally dry. The slight chance of light snow showers, a mix of sun and cloud.
Snow down to 900m. 0 to 1 cm of snow.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY: Generally dry. More cloud, the slight chance of light snow showers.
Snow down to 900m, rising to 1500m on Sunday. 0 to 1 cm of snow.
High pressure moves to our east early next week, and it thaws out. A stretch of dry weather.
