A high pressure system is moving to our east, continuing the dry weather for now.
A cold and snowy outbreak is coming this weekend. A front moves through on Friday, introducing a cold and unstable airmass. This is driven by a low pressure system that will move across Tasmania on Saturday. It eases with a high coming closer on Monday.
Expect persistent snow through the weekend. Freeze levels lower well below 1200 metres after a wet rain/snow mix on Thursday night and Friday day.
Friday night to early next week: 20 to 35 cm.
