    What!

    You mean a strong front has put the squeeze on an area of high pressure directing a strong nw stream over sydney and surrounds?

    Plenty of snow where it counts.

    I've never seen Fast One/Slalom Gully groomed like it was on Sunday, straight over the rock band. I pulled up out of habit but it was smooth and just a bit of a rollover.

    I'm yet to see a car thermometer pic.
    So it isn't happening
    Mine is reading 34 for the record.
    That wind is north by Nw at the beach. Looks like Rosebud in summer.

    If the Alps get tonight what we're feeling now, all that's needed is the moisture

    Surprisingly fun morning in Thredbo. The wind wasn't too bad and the snow was faster than I thought it would be. The super trail was soft but groomed well and didn't really get too slow till 11am.

    No moisture when I left at midday...

    Looks wet on Cruiser Cam. Should lower with time.

    Steadfastly refusing to snow in Falls, thermometer moving in right direction since last night (now down to 0.1C) but the best we've seen is a reasonably heavy sleet (well cold rain with three flakes of something not rain) shower this afternoon.

    Snow not looking too flash off piste, staying softish, but all sorts of lumps, bumps & variable consistencies. Over the lake side, could be used to stick tiles to walls, Maze area a little better.
