Snowy Mountains Forecast

Issued: Sat Jul 30
A high extends from South Australia across New South Wales. This high will be the dominant synoptic feature in the region during the next few days, moving slowly across southeast Australia and blocking the progress of any approaching fronts. The stability of this system should promote fine weather and increasing daytime temperatures in most districts, although mornings will remain cold. Late on the weekend the high is forecast to weaken, allowing the next significant cold front to move through New South Wales early in the new week.

Partly cloudy. Fog and areas of frost this morning. Medium (50%) chance of snow showers about the alpine peaks, most likely later tonight. Near zero chance of rain elsewhere. Snow possible above 1500 metres. Light winds becoming northwesterly 20 to 30 km/h in the evening.
Chance of snow 1800m : 40%
1400m : 10%
1000m : 0%
