TREND: IMPROVING / ONGOING / DETERIORATING
The series of cold fronts have finally arrived and done their magic overnight on the NSW Main Range. Snowfalls done to 1000m over night have transformed the mountains. 20cm of new snow has occurred overnight and more is on the way moving froward. The danger rating has been elevated and will stay this way for the week due to snowfalls and winds in the area.
With the temperatures staying cold and the winds around the mountains there will be Wind slab issues on Lee to the SW slopes above and below snowline. We are expecting 60-80cm of snow in the next 5 days and this will be more like 1.5m on the lee slops so beware of wind slab on all lee aspects. We will continue to monitor the bond strength of this new on the existing wet surface it fell on.
