    Running a imaginary lines down both insides of the c/front . Gives a good indication of its actual width in kilometers.

    Interesting..... it’s warm... Perisher temps a bit higher. Not getting anything like that wind wise with BOM showing nothing over 40km/h. Calm at Moonbah and nearly 9 degrees. Interested in the next 36 hours or so....

    At a guess you'd be feeling it if it were Southerly. This ones all out of the North.

    Yep. I could have been a little clearer though. Those BOM readings wind wise are for Perisher where it’s about 6 degrees. Not looking good for the snowpack if that BOM forecast moisture hits while it’s so mild....

    29.8 mm here (@ Maragle) and currently straddling 6° C.

    Also, for you skier fellas, I note that Perisher Valley and Thredbo Top Station are now standing on 2.6° C and 1.1° C respectively.

    Looks on spec for now.
    ~40mm apiece for Thredbo and Perisher since 11:30pm.
    Thredbo almost to meg temps.

    Not much moisture left on the radar unfortunately.

    I note that Coronavirus has not stopped the weather in Enzed either, nor has social distancing prevented snow play en-masse. Great to see!

    I observe creeks around PV flowing this morning. It was minus 1 when pic was taken and a little bit of sleet - on and off.




    Mt P - lower resort levels pretty damp.



    Pretty much a net loss. A bit of slush on the road up around Spencer’s.

    Higher peaks likely gained a few cms of wet snow. The alpine a bit more but that’s just a guess based on what was visible this morning.

    Mt.Stirling on the upper mountain got a few cms. of snow overnight but we are still not looking at a XC skiable hill from the Car park to the summit .
    The website for Mt. Stirling still has 2019 information for ski lessons. I wonder if their Estonian ski instructors have been caught up by the plague and its disruptions to world travel?

    The weather here in NE Melb. is mild and sunny. The cycling path along the Main Yarra trail was unpleasantly congested. I cannot see much more snow coming from this weather system.
