    Fear not lads. The prevailing winds will, um, prevail bringing us the snow we love. My bet is to see a smashing event by the end of next week and a snow depth approaching 75cm officially. Of course in stashes one would expect to find more.

    I remember having to remove skis to walk down to interceptor in mid August.

    I had a knee reco in December 05 and missed the whole 2006 season. Perfect timing!

    Except, of course, that those prevailing winds are not the prevailing winds of yore.

    Driest June on record in Victoria, and by some margin.

    Rest of Southern Australia isn't that flash either

    Compared to forecast products issued on May 25th

    BoM model didn't verify well in the top end but did OK through most of SE Australia.

    Tassie isn't too happy either, that's a model resolution issue.

    True , same for southeast NSW west of the hills. At least there was some existing moisture in the ground so not as bad as the graphic might lead you to believe , a couple more months of low/nil rainfall...............well that's a different matter altogether.

    Yep. Thankfully we had some low probability weather events in late April/May where moisture from late season TCs made its way to the South East.
