At least I can start thinking about snow sking now, a sport I dont totally suck at.

If you look at that snow cam image, you can click to see that same image at different times, and thus see how much snow has fallen during the day!

10:45:54 AM
Not quite dumping yet, just another light dusting.

11:03:29 AM
Yeh! Hopefully more soon!

Here is the BOM forecast for the Alps for next couple of days

ALPS FORECAST: HEADLINE: Few showers/snow showers.
Cold and windy with a few showers, likely to fall as snow above 1700m, lowering
to 1200m this evening. Fresh to strong west to westerly winds.
UV INDEX: 4 [Moderate]

PROBABILITY OF SNOW: at 1500 m at 1900 m
Today (6am/6pm) 50% 80%
Tonight (6pm/6am) 70% 90%
Friday (24hr from 6am) 50% 80%

A frontal system in the Tasman Sea is linking with an extensive cloud band over
southeastern Australia, bringing overnight rain to Alpine regions and light
snowfalls about the Alpine peaks. A few showers will persist today in the wake
of the frontal system, with snowfalls likely above 1700m, and down to 1200m this
evening and Friday morning. Westerly winds will be cold and fresh to strong.
Showers and snow are expected to clear sometime Friday, and Saturday and Sunday
are expected to be fine with lighter winds.

Bring it on!

Gold!! The hotlink nazi - no more hotlinking for you!!

I've tried to link to the snowcam inages before but it doesn't work. You will have to go to the individual resort websites and you can pilfer their webcam images.

BOM have forecast for a dusting later this week but unfortunately not enough for much action on the opening weekend.

4:42:37 PM
Well thats changed, check this forecast out:

Wednesday Scattered showers tending to rain during the afternoon, then snow
overnight. Isolated thunderstorms developing. Strong northerly wind.
Thursday Snow with some heavy falls. Isolated hail and thunder. Windy.
Friday Snow showers easing.

Maybe time to go and play at Bogong this long weekend..

Jeez the arvo forecast is looking much better than the one they had out this morning

See below BOM Vic Allpine forecast (issued 3:31 pm 7th June 2004)

Weather Pattern:
A high pressure system will drift slowly eastwards across the Tasman sea over
the next few days. A series of weakening cold fronts will move from the Bight
towards Tasmania today and Tuesday but a stronger cold front and low pressure
system will move through Victoria and Bass Strait on Wednesday and Thursday
followed by a high pressure ridge on Friday.

Forecast: Tonight and Tuesday
Partly cloudy with isolated showers. Fresh northerly wind.

Wednesday Scattered showers tending to rain during the afternoon, then snow
overnight. Isolated thunderstorms developing. Strong northerly wind.
Thursday Snow with some heavy falls. Isolated hail and thunder. Windy.
Friday Snow showers easing.

Well, looks like its really going to come down friday and saturday:

Friday 18th: strong WNW winds (gale force at times), showers early with snow falling above 1600m and lowering to around 1400m later in the day and 1200m overnight, possible heavy snowfalls overnight (15-20cm)

Saturday 19th: strong WNW winds turning WSW (gale force at times), blizzard conditions with widespread heavy snowfalls to around 800m (20-40cm)

Could go skiing in the Grampians for the novelty factor. ;)

5:16:49 PM
even heard rumours that Oberon/High Blue Mts in NSW will also get a bit of the white dust on saturday. Interesting!

8:16:14 PM

8:14:32 AM
Oberon gets snow quite often, I was up there a few years back in November (going caving at Tuglow Caves) and on the drive in there was some snow on the ground. It got so cold over night that the water in our washup bucket, about 1 inch deep completely froze overnight.
