    On Melb radar u can now see the next trough in a distinct line moving up from south west and barreling toward Melb!
    Next layer of colder air I’d suspect.
    Satellite looks very nice!

    Looks to be snowing on the thredbo live cams. Although does look a little more "sagoy" than snowy.

    Edit: all the way to the village

    Rugged ride this morning. Rather less rain than expected. Probably rained for no more than 20m here in Melbourne.
    Wind much more of a factor.

    Just coldies are left for you. Maybe a few mm more today, max.
    Pretty cold. -34c @ 500mb near the coast (to your SW), that'll drop snow ~400m below FL (~900m at the moment along the Surf Coast).

    The lads are on the West Coast of Tas and have snow @1km ASL. If you don't watch 4WDAction YouTube channel, you bloody well should. It's addictive.

    Compared to last night, definitely. Was mild with a gentle northerly. Tonight just leaving home it’s icy, gusty SW wind, with hail and rain.
