The latest on the snow and weather in southeast Australia
Tuesday July 7th, 2015
Presented by: aussieskier
A ridge of high pressure will bring us three dry days in the alps. Winds are fairly light, and there are long sunny breaks. Nights are good for snowmaking.
But then it will all change, with a HUGE snowfall coming this weekend. The snow begins with a trough on Friday, and turns heavy with a strong front on Saturday, driven by a low that will move from just south of Tasmania to the Tasman Sea. The snow may lower to 500 metres.
The low will linger over the Tasman Sea on Sunday and early next week, as weaker fronts clip the southeast of the country. They are weaker thanks to the trailing high settling over the Bight – but if it holds back, these will be strong fronts with more heavy snow.
But this will all bring 40 to 60 cm of snow from Friday to Wednesday – and more if the high stays out of the way.
REST OF TODAY:
Dry, with a mix of sunshine and cloud. Light winds.
|Dry and partly cloudy.|
