    Himawari8 showing our first low in the Bight. This decaying system is due tomorrow AM. this system has already been in the mid lats for a few days so cold air is being exhausted.

    The follow up front due on Wednesday can be seen SSW under WA. Good cold air can already be seen in the embedded trough trailing the dense blue (front).

    Here’s hoping the sunset below (looking towards Perisher) is the last one like this for the upcoming week. (Popped this in obs as opposed to sunsets as I hope to contrast the current view with obs snow pics.......

    Headed up Donna Buang mid afternoon for some spring water. Quite windy up there and 4 degrees, felt chilly in the shade. Clouds were racing low overhead. Snows on the way.

    I wouldn't say a dusting of snow and more for some areas is bleak. But each to their own.
