JANE'S SNOW FORecast discussion
FOR THE MAINLAND AUSTRALIAN ALPS
Updated: Tuesday morning.
Our next proper snowfall arrives on Tuesday as a cold front moves through. This has substantial cold air behind it.
TUESDAY: Persistent snow from the morning in the west, the afternoon in the east.
Snow down to 1500m, lowering to 900m. 5 to 10 cm of snow.
A “cold pool” of air lingers over southeast Australia through to the weekend. But there is limited instability, with a high just to the west.
WEDNESDAY to FRIDAY: The slight chance of light snow showers (most frequent in the south), a mix of sun and cloud.
Snow down to 900m. 0 to 2 cm of snow each day (mainly in the south).
The high slowly moves over us on the weekend, the cold pool slowly dissipates.
SATURDAY and SUNDAY: All dry. A mix of sun and cloud.
High pressure moves to our east next week, and it thaws out. A stretch of dry weather. Generally sunny, high cloud at times from weather systems well back to our west.
