JANE'S SNOW FORECAST DISCUSSION 

A high has moved in to produce sunshine and light winds for Friday. The high moves to the east on Saturday, letting the wind strengthen again later in the day. There is also the chance of snow showers on Saturday night as the next system approaches. 

A cold front cuts through the high later on Sunday, then the high quickly comes back in on Monday, but we should see 5 to 10 cm snow on Sunday into Monday. 

The next bigger system is not far away. A low crosses Tasmania later Tuesday, then a strong front crosses the alps on Wednesday. We'll see 20 to 30 cm of snow from Tuesday to Wednesday, most of it falling on Wednesday. 

The next high brings light winds and sunshine on Thursday, then a weak front clips the alps next Friday, with a few centimetres of snow

Friday - Dry and sunny with light winds. 

Saturday - A dry day with moderate winds. Becoming windy at night with the chance of snow showers. 

Sunday - Snow developing. Strong winds, moderating later. 

Monday - Snow showers, increasing in the afternoon. Moderate winds. 

Tuesday - Snow showers, tending to persistent snow later in the day. Moderate winds becoming strong.
