Perisher weather forecast: June 30 - July 6

Forecast Summary

Two pressure systems, a eastlery low and a northerly high are combining to draw moisture and warm air from the tropics down the east cost of Australia.

Unfortunately, the moisture arrived with a lack of a cold front, preventing the precipitaion falling as snow.

The alpine areas can expect about 50mm of rain over the seven days from Wednesday 29. A resident cold front could have seen this falling as nearly 50cm of snow.


Wet conditions, with possible flooding, and reducded visability of roadways around the alpine areas. Take care!
