by Pete ‘The Frog’ Taylor - Snow Forecasting since 1997
Updated: May 26th, 5:24amThe outlook seems to be looking better every day. There is now reason to get excited.
The remainder of the week should be mostly fine with cloud increasing on Saturday.
Saturday should see the wind pick up in the mountains. Sunday should see light snow falling up high early and lowering later as a cool change arrives. We should see around 3-6cm but there is a chance of a little more.
There should then be a slight break in the weather Monday before another cool change on Tuesday sees more light snow falling into Wednesday. We should see around another 10cm which for this time of year and will help with ground cooling and lay a base for the snowmakers to work with.
We should then see a few cool clear nights where the snow makers can get firing adding to the thin natural base.
Looking long range it looks like more snow across the 6th-8th with another 5-10cm possible.
With this natural snow and quite a few snowmaking nights over the next two weeks it looks very likely that the resorts will be able to open some runs on the snowmaking areas for the opening weekend.
