Swellnet’s forecaster, Craig Brokensha, is predicting a good strong cold outbreak next week = Good Snow Dumps!

“So while winter officially finishes today, we’ve got the strongest cold outbreak of the year for the south-east of the country forecast for next week. A very strong and pronounced node of the Long Wave Trough is expected to develop in the Bight and move slowly across the south-east corner of the country early next week, bringing with it cold weather, large swells and considerable snow dumps. The node is expected to stall in the region for three or so days before pushing further east across New Zealand. Currently the models have the node strongest when over Tasmania which will see a flurry of vigorous cold fronts projected up just to its west, initially into Southern Australian, and then Victoria.
