Absolutely stunning at Buller. Stirling in the background, not a cloud in the sky.
Going out for an afternoon ski.

I've reduced the date range to the 12th - we'll start a new obs thread for the next system from the 13th to encapsulate that system in it's entirety.

How was the serenity?

Pretty mild and breezy in Melbourne this morning. Cloud rolling in now. There was a light shower a bit earlier, based on the raindrops sitting on the cars parked along the street.
Barely enough to register. About 5 drops on the walk to the station this morning but that's it.

Warm summer like in the gong.

Ski season has ended for Sydney people
yeah pretty uneventful here in Sydney.

Mild, sunny, minimal wind and that familiar back burning smell in the air.

Watch everyone put their winter clothes away tomorrow and Wednesday before being punched in the face by the fist of winter on Thursday.

Quiet at work.

Got some funny looks from people who told me they were finishing skiing this weekend and I replied that my season was just starting, and with this amount of snow in the BC we will be skiing until Xmas!

Was warm & moist (humidity wise) in Falls today. Snow was soft & slow going to say the least, but wind stayed light. Wasn't uncomfortable skinning in just a t-shirt.

A few, almost imperceptible spots of rain this afternoon before sky cleared for quite a nice sunset. Bit more wind in the village area this evening though.

At Moonbah... gale force winds that are far stronger than anything we have had recently. Pretty uncomfortable out in the open paddocks. Not that much better indoors such is the direct force hitting the home and gardens. 18 degrees to go with it!

Looks like some nasty weather up the hill......

FB is telling me its crazy winds in Jindy as well.

Our van and annexe is actually tied down into the ground. We hammered 4 foot long star posts down into the ground. Then solid chain and tensioners around the A frame and floor joists .

Extremely windy in Jindy. One of those days where it is actually windier in town than on the hill. Our power was off for an hour, but back on now.

Wasn't very nice on the hill (perisher). Soft, slow and wet snow, rain showers on and off, lots of lifts on wind hold or running slow. @DidSurfNowSki I think you were dreaming when you saw flakes on a thredbo cam. Either that or thredbo has old cam pics on replay. Certainly no flakes at perisher:(

Surfs up on lake Jindabyne;)

There was a sandstorm happening down in the claypits before
Yeah when the lake was down really low a few years back, any blow would coat our place in dust. I'm talking everywhere .
Now its a bit better ...but man the tents cop it when it blows.
*I have no sympathy for those camped at claypits
** even less for those camping on the frisbee golf course

Woke to light rain tapping on the window early this morning in Falls. BOM gauge reporting less than a mm before nine, but it seemed more. Another heavier shower this afternoon, but still under a mm.

Snow seems to be holding up ok, hill is pretty empty, people telling me "not bad spring conditions", including one gentleman in shorts, but not convinced about this riding in the rain stuff. Little more than gentle zephyr since arrival on Sunday, but have observed quite a bit of snow & wind loading damage (from last weeks system) in the snow gums around village & alpine ash down lower.

Cold air can't come soon enough.

Kids school went into lockdown yesterday afternoon. Too dangerous to be outside. Mine ended up with asthma last night from all the dust around. Was an awful day for weather!
