JANE'S SNOW FORECAST DISCUSSION

Jane Bunn's snow forecast #janesweather (1).png

Updated: Monday 25th June 2018, 8:00am. 

The slight chance of snow on Wednesday and Thursday, then a moderate fall of snow on Friday.  

A high moves in over the alps again today, but the upper level energy from a cold front (now over New Zealand) has become cut-off and moved over Australia. This will work with a feed of tropical moisture to bring rain to eastern Australia. 

Most of the rain is north of the Alps, but there is the chance of precipitation on Wednesday and Thursday, mainly for NSW resorts. The upper level energy is a weak pool of cold air, so it may be snow above 1600 metres, lowering to 1500m on Thursday.

The next cold front breaks through on Friday. This should produce a moderate fall of snow, 5 to 10 cm. Snow is likely for much of the day and night, clearing early Saturday as the next high comes in. Then we have a dry weekend.
