All models are in agreement for a major cold pool to be flung up from deep in the Antarctic across us later next week.

Moisture is 50/50 but I suspect that may improve if the preceding winds have a more se’erly component.

Expecting showers and storms with small hail and snow across the ranges right to the QLD border, possibly down to 800m or even lower south of Sydney.

Here's ACCESS for 9:00 Friday. The other models are in fairly close agreement.



The blue line later moves further East and North, but the moisture keeps West of the Divide. It looks like useful rain for the Southern and Central Tablelands and slopes. There will be snow in the Snowys. Snow also looks likely in places like Orange and Oberon, but probably not the Blue Mountains or Southern Highlands.

This one will be a sure hammering for me, by the looks of it; I'd reckon it'll fall down to about 600 m AMSL i.e. Tumbarumba-level, at my latitude and windward angle of course. Probably not falling in Cooma, however, and certainly not any farther eastwards than that.

Hhhmmm, I’m unsure Winnie the Pooh will be as extensive as this chart suggests as there appears to be quite a difference between the BOM forecast for Friday between Orange and Katoomba. Going of the MSLP chart for Wednesday, I have a suspicion this one might slip south a bit too early for a real widespread cold outbreak. Perhaps a good one to get some snow on the ground for the Snowies to at least get the ground temp down, but I’d say at this stage whatever falls there will melt before season proper.

Waiting on that Friday MSLP chart from the BOM before I get excited..

This morning's model runs point towards a much more southerly moisture flow, indicating places further east (if it is cold enough of course) such as Delegate and Bombala and the higher surrounds may actually get more snow than places further west. Jindy, Thredbo and all southern facing high areas usually do very well out of these sort of systems in terms of snow.

It's certainly looking good for that far south area around Bombala. Nimmitabel could get 10+ cm at this stage I reckon.

Moisture wise for the ranges in general, it might be on track to be as good or even better than any cool change we had last winter.

Models are not backing away from this event - they seem to be getting better - overnight EC is insane - tipping snow all the way to the QLD border, and then the colder drier air being captured by the trades and shunted almost to Indo! True cold outbreak. Still too SW'erly for the coastal areas to see much other than the bitter winds.

GFS still looks fully on board, with the blue line embracing much of Central and Eastern NSW and sub-zero 850 temps over the Central Tablelands on Friday morning. The BOM are coming on board: Strong Front Approaches .

The BOM forecast for the Central Tablelands, however, only shows snow for Oberon, with snow 'possible' above 1,000 metres for Jenolan Caves. On MetEye, peak snow for the Central Tablelands looks to be around 10:00 Friday, with falls maybe above 1100 metres.

We'll see what happens.

Not rare at all. The forecast for 'Jenolan Caves' extends to the areas around the actual village which include places like Mt Trickett and Mt Bindo, both around the 1360m mark. That's why the forecast notes for Jenolan Caves read "snow possible above 1000m", despite the village itself being around 840m. The surrounding areas of 1000m + are certainly no stranger to snowfalls in May.

Snowcast for Wednesday states snow falling above 1,400 m; however, my forecast states otherwise—snow for me down at 1,300 m, on both Wednesday and Friday:

https://m.imgur.com/a/yhor8I4

I can certainly wager on it—remember the unforecast March flurries for Porters Retreat this year? Snow might very well fall as low as the Lake Eucumbene foreshore (1,168 m) on Wednesday, best case scenario.

A cold snap is still a goer at this stage and particularly temps at 500mb are decent at below -30 over the CT so should be plenty of snow showers around. Sunny periods between showers will probably enhance snowfall because there's some instability involved with this change thanks to that cold pool.

My bet is that settled snow will fall down to around 900m on both on the southern and central tablelands on Friday including the snowies. Places like Jindabyne could surprise with this system as the wind direction is perfect for them to get lucky. Crookwell should also get something as will most areas above 1000m around Jenolan Caves etc. Between 6am and 9am I tink will be the heaviest snow for the CTs as most of the moisture comes with the leading edge of the cold air. As Waverider said, the really good instability associated with those really cold uppers could surprise with snow to lower levels than expected! Very much doubt we will get anything here at home because the winds are not favourable, but will definitely do a drive to Crookwell if things are looking good early Friday

Ashes I had a quick look at the lake effect snow page on wikipedia as I was also interested in this and it says that apparently you need a fetch (distance that the cold air travels over water) of at least 100km so I think lake Eucumbene would be too small for this to happen. Unless there is some weird microclimate thing going on down there in the mountains. Looking forward to seeing some reports and pics from you AA this week!

Not so much a proper lake effect, but rather the windward angle of which I'm situated upon; I'm at the North-Western side of the lake (near Bugtown Rd, Denison Mount and Mars Hill), thereby allowing greater moisture to be collected before depositing.

The Eastern side of the lake—straddling Middlingbank, Frying Pan, and surrounds, do not get nearly as much snowfall as up here. Rhine Falls (on Eucumbene's East) is about my elevation, but tends to lack the snowfall I get due to its more sheltered location—notice how warm they always get forecast in comparison to Cabramurra, whilst I'm often a mere 1.5° C warmer than Cabra in maximums, which would put my average July maximum around 5° C.

Well, there definitely appears to be a good parcel of cold air behind Friday’s front on this morning’s satellite. How far this ends up pushing north I’m not so sure.
This system appears to lack a sustained SW’ly airflow which would be needed for a more widespread cold event.

My guess for areas outside of the Snowies (the main place of action for this event) is for SW - S’ly winds to drop a bit of sleet and wet snow on the high areas around Jenolan and Yetholme. Those areas tend to do a bit better with these systems with a bit more S’ly component.

All I see for the Illawarra is 4-5 days of boredom weather. Hoping that the series of highs can default a little and move south a little to get coastal showers below Newcastle mid next week.

Very boring on the Central Coast as well. The past few Mays have all been the same. The last interesting May here was probably 2015.

There was a big variation in minima across Sydney this morning, from 2.7 at Campbelltown to 14.5 at Sydney OH. In spite of the clear skies last night, it stayed relatively warm at places that aren't strongly affected by inversions, for example OH, Mount Boyce and Norah Head, where warm-ish breezes kept temperatures several degrees warmer than the previous night.

A weak cold front passed through Sydney mid-morning, making it briefly cloudy with the wind picking up. Webcams show a light dusting of snow at the resorts.

As for Friday's event, it now looks like marginal snow for the higher parts of the Central Tablelands and a small, brief dip in temperatures on the coast. After that, high pressure settles over the South of the continent for the foreseeable future.

Rain band and cold pool extending right up to the NW NSW /QLD border.
would you believe the 536 thickness line extends up to the far NW border of the state, Friday morning 4am.

minimum of 10 deg c for Bourke and top of 16 deg friday forecast
http://www.bom.gov.au/nsw/forecasts/bourke.shtml

http://www.bom.gov.au/australia/charts/v...it=Refresh+View

An embedded small low in the trough should improve chances for snow on the alps on friday afternoon, evening, with 540 thickness and an accompanied precip' signal. Snow above 1200m l believe the BOM forecast said.
Jindabyne is 915 m

Snow Report; Wednesday, 8th of May, 2019:

Outcome: +Positive+

Extreme Lowest Altitudinal: ~1,260 m (Providence Portal, on the "Yellow Road")

Was nothing to be particularly excited over, with chiefly wet and sleety snow falling (and accumulating a tad) yesterday. However, it was very marginal: Mt. Cobrabald (1,471 m AMSL), alongside the rest of Braemar Bay and Buckenderra (of whom usually get hammered) had missed out on the precipitation, thereby not falling up there—but falling here, on the NW angle instead.

I also recall that Thredbo Village (1,380 m AMSL) did not get any sort of snowfall, either, which farther accentuates how westerly and marginal this event really was...and how lucky of a position I was in yesterday.

Maximum yesterday was 3.8° C here; 2.5° C at Cabramurra.

Major downgrade for tomorrow's front, it appears. Snow restricted to >1,100 m even down at this latitude, with a fair chance that the Central Tablelands misses out altogether—save for perhaps the upper crests of the Abercrombie Range, with sleety falls at best. We can forget any snowfall for Guyra or Walcha, at this point.

Yes, although the synoptic chart shows an impressive-looking cold front crossing the Tablelands and Coast tomorrow morning, the cold air mass enters the Western half of the State and quickly breaks up and dissipates as it moves East.

For the coast, a complete non-event, no rain, not even a dip in temperature.

Still, until a yesterday, it looked like a significant cold outbreak.

EDIT: An ECL does develop off the South Coast. There will be good rain down there and likely some snow on the Snowys.

Here's the ABC's take on tomorrow's front: https://www.abc.net.au/news/2019-05-09/sydney-temperatures-to-plummet-in-cold-snap/11097536

A bit hyped up but it will be cold in the West, e.g maxima of 14 at Broken Hill and 16 at Bourke.

Here's an extract from the State forecast for tomorrow: "A shower or two developing on the central and southern ranges, falling as snow above 110 metres in the south and possible dusting in higher central parts."

They probably mean 1100.

Eh, I know no one pays much mind to me on here but when it comes to cold fronts it's all in those 4 day forecast MSLP charts the BoM puts out in combination with the satellite pic for the final clincher. This event looked to loose steam a few days ago for mind. I never pay much mind to models with thickness lines extending here or there and what not as they never seem to be particularly accurate predictors a week out etc.

This is where I can agree with you; the Weather.com forecasts I always use, had at no point this past week predicted even the slightest hint of snowfall for the likes of Guyra, and still merely predict rain and sleet for the likes of Shooters Hill.

Models don't tell you everything, indeed, and are likewise subject to inaccuracy(s).

Some sprinkles in the Ryde area today, and perhaps elsewherre. Apart from a temp spike to around 19c at 9:30 (sunny break perhaps?) it's been cold in Sydney, hovering around 14-17c across the basin. Certainly less bite than what I would have thought 4 or 5 days ago....

Correct me if I'm wrong, but is the low in a really odd position compared to what was expected? All the models suggested it was meant to be centred off Mallacoota, Eden etc by this time. It is currently positioned near Griffith

Circulation seems to be apparent on Yarrawonga radar at 1.30pm (EST)

It's very close to where it's meant to be for 1pm on GFS, EC & ACCESS-R (just northwards of the border around Yarrawonga). They all have it just offshore of the Bega/Narooma coast at around 10pm.

Still some reasonably low temps about, Orange AP and Nullo Mountain both around 5C with rain accumulating in the gauge. Hay AP about 9C, not bad for 92m ASL. Perhaps if the moisture hangs about long enough for the wind to shift SW'ly, the higher parts of the CT's might see a flake or two..

Hi, i’m just reporting from Cowra - currently a light shower (looks heavier a bit further south), along with some low, dark clouds moving over. Also very cold (at least by my standards lol), not sure of exact temp though. Maybe as it pushes over the higher ground a bit further east there could be some sleet/snow 😊

It's currently 9° in Cowra (300 metres) after a max of 13.4, so, fairly Wintry.

The change passed through here and the City around 9:30, bringing cloud but no rain, dropping temps from about 18-19 to 15-16, where it hovered until around 2:00 PM. Most Sydney sites spiked to 19-20 during sunny breaks in the mid-afternoon.

I notice that it's 3° at Mt Boyce with recent precipitation. Might be a few flakes mixed in with that lot.

Got a heavy soft hail shower here around 4pm and bottomed out at 6.1C. Would have been some sleety showers on top of Mount Gibraltar (865m) just up behind Bowral.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the lack of wind from this cold front here.

Feels like a typical wintry change here. Should be flakes on highest ground already. Wind still NW, cooling to come, bit over 4 here, about 2 to 3 Orange. Canobolas surely would have flakes.

At Sunny Corner at the moment. 10.51. No snow at all. The wind has picked up a bit & the occasional bit of light drizzle.

Thats surprising. That area is over 1250m. Might have to wait for a shower band to pass through.

Sleet and drizzle here. At times a burst of snow, but nothing settling. Just not quite cold enough.

Hail, sleet, and a few flakes at Edith with a band that came through around 5pm. Nothing since. Moisture is all but gone in this system
