The models show a bit of a cold outbreak next Sunday 12th, with 850 temps over the central parts of NSW below zero and some moisture about. Meteye shows snow in the Orange area and about the Oberon Plateau, although none East of the Divide. The 7 day forecast mentions the 'possibility' of snow in Orange on Sunday.

Done 4 ski trips to Perisher so far this season (3 more to come), plus Oberon for 3 snowfalls and planning this Sunday. Can't get enough of the stuff.

Had some really good skiing, but been frustrated by the strong winds and the subsequent closure of lifts and the scouring of the snow creating ice skating rink conditions at times.

Snow depths in Alpine areas are tracking pretty much on a par with last year's bumper season, with 179 cm at Spencer's Creek: Snowy Hydro Snow Depths. Looking at the forecast, there's more to come over the next week or so.

The forecast also indicates snow falls for the Central Tablelands overnight tomorrow into Sunday morning, possibly as low as 700 metres. The change is short-lived, with snow again pretty much restricted to West of the Divide.

This Westerly pattern seems good for precipitation and snow at high elevations on the Western side of the Great Dividing range in Southern NSW, although not so good for the rest of the State.

Looks like another good week of snow for the Snowies with that strong front at the end of the week.
I must say Iíve been quite surprised by the season this year given the warm, dry conditions (some cold minima however) that have been going on for much of NSW north of the Snowies. Glad to see that snowdepth keep building.
