Snow is clearing eastwards this morning and we will take a dry, sometimes sunny break.

But the next system is not far away and comes from the energy with a front that's crossing Tasmania this morning. This will usher in much colder air and will let a trough and low form over eastern Bass Strait, lingering through the weekend.

Snow showers are likely from this afternoon through to Sunday morning, throughout all alpine elevations. Expect 5 to 10 cm of snow.

We take a break on Monday and Tuesday, before the next weather system arrives in the middle of next week.

This is a low that should pass over New South Wales. Alpine areas look to be on the edge of it's precipitation, which is good as it may not be cold enough.

REST OF TODAY:

Snow showers, mainly this afternoon and tonight, 2 to 3 cm of snow. Moderate SW winds.
