    Default Is 2018 going to turn into 20greateen?

    I've been following a system due around the 16th/17th for a while now (http://www.snowatch.com.au/could-thi...next-big-dump/). It's been up and down for the last week with forecast models having trouble reading it. Some say it will slip south whilst others are just starting to show it may drop some snow. My feeling is that it's going to build into something big with heavy snowfalls to low levels over a few days. It's still a long way away, but it's looking better every day.



    If this comes off we could see all resorts well over the 1m base mark with some a fair bit above that. Keeping everything crossed!

    Still think this could build into something big over the next couple of days on the forecast charts.

    Saw this graphic pop up in my fb feed the other day (I think?).. Interesting.
    On one hand it's quite amazing that such analyses are being made so far out - of systems moving more than half-way around the southern climes of the globe toward us.
    On the other it's great that such in-depth analysis of weather including so many accessible details these days is being done, thanks to modern technology, information sharing etc.
    For mine, it doesn't look like bringing significant snowfall across the VIC & NSW alps over the next fortnight or so, but you never know - it could build & do so (hope so!)

    Looking better today and a few more weather models are coming into line which is a good sign.

    It certainly has become a good year for retail, by far our best ever year, especially regards boot fitting and ski sales.

    A lot more snow to come in August. Consistent falls which will keep topping up the cover. You won't be getting a rest any time soon.

    This is my first year in over a decade of going to FC for the June/July school holidays - so severely ticked that I didn't go down with the conditions experienced.

    I will need to get there for the September holidays - what's the long term forecast for a cool September?
    I drink, therefore I am. Ummmm?

    Should be enough snow falling in August to leave a decent cover for September.

    It would be safe to say it is 20Greateen.
