Weather in the Snowy Mountains can be very unpredictable at times, so it is a good idea to become aware of what weather conditions are daily.
In winter the weather can be extreme and snow and blizzards can occur at short notice. It is advisable to keep an eye on winter weather so you know how many layers to wear and also to be aware on the roads when there is snow or possibly ice.
You can see snow reports, snow cams, weather situations and road conditions here on our weather pages for Thredbo and Perisher.
If you are out hiking in summer you want to know what the wind is doing up high, will there be visibility and what temperature to expect. After all, you don’t want to be the furthermost point from home when you realise you should have packed an extra layer or a rain jacket.
Use our weather station here and Snowy Mountains synopsis update to find out the details of the town you are visiting, and always be prepared. Be aware that in the high alpine the wind speed can drastically affect the weather and temperatures, so factor this in before you leave.
Current Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) Weather Synopsis
A strong high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will remain near stationary for much of this week, bringing showers to the east. A coastal trough along the southern Queensland and northern New South Wales coast, that has been enhancing shower activity along the northern coast, will move further offshore today, as a second trough approaches the far west of the state and slowly moves eastward from today to Friday. This second trough is forecast to bring showers and thunderstorms across most districts.
