Perisher weather and snow report

Bureau of Meteorology Synopsis

Weather Situation

A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea will remain slow moving for the next few days, allowing for heat to build over New South Wales. This heat will lead to severe heatwave conditions across much of the state on the weekend and cause elevated fire dangers in some areas. Windy conditions are also forecast to develop on the weekend, as a trough enters the west on Saturday and then deepens as it moves east on Sunday. A cold front associated with this trough looks set to bring a strong and gusty cool change along the coast on Sunday, resulting in the heat contracting towards the north. A new high is expected to move over the Tasman Sea Monday, bringing more settled conditions to the region.
