SNOWY MOUNTAINS REGION FORECAST
Covering Southern Tablelands and Southwest Slopes above 1200 metres
Issued at 4:30pm on Monday the 25th of May 2009

Warning Summary at issue time:
Nil. 

Warning Summary at issue time:
A cold front and combined trough is moving through Victoria and southern NSW
where it is producing widespread rainfall. This system will weaken as it
approaches the region, bringing light rainfall tonight and through Tuesday,
before clearing on Wednesday.  A strong high will build in the Bight in the wake
of the change, southerly winds associated with the high are forecast to steer
some cold air from the Southern Ocean over the region late in the week.  This
may be sufficient to trigger some isolated snow showers about the peaks on
Friday or Saturday.
