Perisher weather forecast: July 7 - 11

Forecast Summary

A high is developing in the bight, which may force the lows to travel too far south - but all is not lost, as there is a good chance of a developing <acronym title="East-Coast-Low">ECL</acronym>.

Should we see a mild high in the bight, and a strong <acronym title="East-Coast-Low">ECL</acronym>, artic temperatures could mix with tropical precipiation, producing good snowfalls mid next week.

There is a slight chance (10%) that there will be heavy snow falls on Friday and Saturday.
