    Took a drive up Donna Buang yesterday for spring water. Wasnt the smartest idea as the winds were horrendous. Only just made it up and back down squeezing around fallen trees. Surprised to see some snow up there as it was very warm. Reports of snow up there this morning. (From fb)

    They’d be 2cm/hr falling at Thredbo, I’d say. Complete coverage in the last half an hour in the village.

    Heavy snow and wind at Guthega but temps are still too high below 1500m or thereabout, so clear stuff falling. 5.2 degrees at Island Bend, so full impact of front yet to materialise.

    Last time I took the bus from Harrietville to Hotham it took 6 hours to get up the hill. Hopefully you will do it 30 mins or such.

    Looking at the radar I think that Yr’s forecast of 3mm tonight for Buller is a little undercooked.

    The lonely stashes I skied at Buller today were fairly deep. Looking at the road outside of the house, I'd say around 10-15cm so far. Probably 5-10cm more on the radar.

    Was raining heavily and 4C when I got back to Bullocks Flat.

    Raining in Jindy, temp is around 3C. Maybe see some white stuff down here later?

    In non weather news, I'm completely stuffed after my first day on snow this year.

    Irymple South, far NW Vic. Just had a serious band of heavy rain and wind pass through, substantial temp drop over just 5-10min, now enough condensation on every window of the house to not see out. Damn cold now!
