After a dusting of snow in the northern resorts and a few cms at Mt Buller and Baw Baw the snow is in great condition. The clouds will move away early and leave us with sunshine through to Monday. Great weather for all the 'official' closing weekend festivities (although Perisher, Mt Buller, Falls Creek and Hotham will remain open til the 7th).
From Wednesday we will see showers developing with light scattered showers. Unfortunately it looks like the shower activity will continue for the next 11-12 days or so, with rain also at times. The only good news is that some of this rain will extend out west to the farmers.
The wet finish to the season will see the snow wash away quite quickly below 1600m.
It's definitely been one of the better seasons, although a little slow to start. Once we got our first dump in the third week of June things kept building from there. Hitting the magic 2m depth mark was the highlight, especially for the Victorian resorts of Falls Creek and Hotham who rarely reach that level.
What has stood out this season is that we have seen average amounts of snow falling (yes, that may be hard to believe), but hardly a drop of rain. Usually we see some showers and rain wash away snow in between dumps. This year it didn't happen and the snow depth kept building.
Cheers to Season 20Greateen!
