Good morning from Naeba! After a wet and windy night, the skies have cleared nicely already this morning! We had heavy rain throughout the early morning, which has added a significant volume of water to the snowpack. This has unfortunately ensured that any remaining fresh snow that had avoided the power of the sun over the past few days is now certainly slushing. There is a moderate wind whipping clouds from west to east over the ridge line, however due to the higher mountains west of Mt Naeba, the wind isn't being sucked down into the valley, leaving the lower slopes with just a calm breeze. The sun is intermittently making its way through the clouds. The remainder of the day will be much like the morning so far. There is also a possibility of a modest accumulation of snow at the base overnight tonight.

Looking forwards, we have a very mixed forecast ahead! Tomorrow, air temperatures will be much lower than today's balmy highs of 7°C. Snow is predicted throughout the day, with modest accumulations of a few centimeters. Winds will be moderate throughout the night tonight and all day tomorrow. On Saturday, daytime air temperatures are expected to be up around 7°C, with sunshine and very little wind. Following this, on Sunday air temperatures push up even higher into the tens, with highs predicted of 13°C. On Sunday night, a block of moist air is expected to arrive from the north west, initially bringing rain Sunday night and into Monday morning. This will turn to snow as the temperature drops on Monday night to just below freezing. The wind will pick up around Monday as well. All this said, the forecast is currently changing on a daily basis, so we will have to wait and see what happens closer to the time!
