Bureau of Meteorology Forecast

Snowy Mountains & VIC Alpine Areas

Issued: Fri Apr 17
A slow-moving high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is maintaining a ridge towards the northern New South Wales coast, while a broad trough is bringing rain to much of the state's south and west. This rain-band will become more mobile during Saturday as an upper-level trough approaches, and should shift towards the northeast later in the day. A cold front associated with this system is expected to reach the southwest late Saturday, continuing to the northeast during Sunday and taking the rain with it. Significantly cooler conditions are forecast to follow as a strong high develops to the south of Adelaide at the start of the new week. In combination with a deepening trough off the northern New South Wales coast, this may bring increased shower activity to some eastern parts.
