DISCUSSION: As a very strong low-pressure system slows pushes eastward just off the southern Australia during the next few days, a major winter storm will continue impacting many parts of South-Central to Southeastern Australia. This threat for high-impact winter weather is the result of efficient moisture transport travelling northward from the Great Australian Bight and into southern sections of Western Australia, South Australia, Victoria, New South Wales, and eventually Tasmania as well where there is much deeper cold air in place (i.e., supportive of heavy, accumulating snowfall). Having said that, there are already very formidable blizzard conditions in place across southern parts of Western Australia as captured in the footage below (courtesy of Tom Lievense and Amber Bennett). Therefore, people who live in or are vacationing in the aforementioned parts of Australia which are currently positioned to the east of this strengthening winter storm should prepare now.
