Lightly raining for the past 15 mins or so in Sydney, temps sitting around 12 degrees.
Drove up to perisher car park for a gander this morning, car reported 4degrees and rain. Decided against getting soaked through, now in Jindabyne. CBD coffee is very busy.
Still seems to have some snow in it on the thredbo cams. Unless the resorts have paid to replay blizard of oz live footage.
Looping the footage just like Keanu Reeves on the bus.
Rained last night up here at Charlotte Pass but not to bad, at the moment the rain has stopped. Lets hope it stays that way but I'am not holding to much hope. Bring on Wed
Still 17 degrees and raining in Adelaide.... no hope yet...
Massive gust of wind in Jindy. Umbrellas over in the town center....
Windy here in Emerald, Vic, 13 degrees, 2mm rail so far. Not looking at any cams till at least tomorrow.
Looks like the next phase of the weather has hit. More than a single gust I'm afraid here at Moonbah. Winds are screaming down off the peaks. We are getting hammered. And it's 14 degrees!
Dumped my brave kids at ski school and skied from 9-11. Rain was on and off at Hotham, not too bad. Winds were fairly light as well at the top of Heavenly.
Back inside now and I can hear the driving rain against the windows. I think it's getting heavier
Yep, that's my plan for today !!
Suddenly very windy in Jindy
Ummm..seeing snow/sleet on Thredbo High Noon and Merritts live cams...
Would have thought it would be rain?
Oddly cold in a Sydney, 7'C below forecasted max.
I observe that I will cease observing until Thursday. Then I will get in the car.
That's clear snow. TS is +2C no snow today.
light rain outside here in north melbs.
feels cooler than i expected.
It was .
Sun coming out in the gong under a smokey #81D8D0 sky.
Getting warmer in a hurry.
Mild and sunny in Canberra, positively Spring-like!
Clear snow at Cleve Cole Bogong...
I observe a lovely radar representation of the westerly rain shadow effect in the Cooma/Monaro/Canberra area. Has looked like this for hours.
17mm of rain at Falls Ck since 9am.
(BTW How do they measure precip when it's snowing?).
I observe that Sydney Airport has climbed to 24C. It's not often that you get the max for the day after 4pm in winter, an hour from sunset.
Yeah we had a strong inversion this morning. With this cloud cover it might stay above 20 tonight
This morning's 9am temp will mean the BOM only ever remembers 14C regardless. It'll be nice to ditch the doona at least
Buller copping it bad as was expected. Can't see snow there until Thursday arvo.
Do they pee on it to melt?
stopped raining in Adelaide at least. clearing from the south, colder air arriving slowly.
Strong winds and 32mm of warm pre-frontal at LM so far today. Not much left down low from the last system
Pretty crappy day in Melb today..Bears not leaving house today...windy,wet and cool....low clouds whizzing past now....
Appears that Thompson Dam in getting some good inflows out of this event....
May spell beginning of the end for Baw Baw...
Flood watch issued for NE Vic rivers.
I observe a new definition of torture. Staying in a lodge full of kids who have been stuck inside all day while adults enforce 'permissive parenting' standards.
Pfft, give them a tablet and your wifi password
Solid inversion today. @9am this morning it was 5-7C warmer a few hundred metres above the surface, and bugger all wind until you hit the ceiling (~2000m).
Off topic : that's a perfect example of 'permissive parenting' that creates the exact situation I'm talking about.
On topic : Still raining hard at Hotham
Buller up to 48mm out of this system already
Oh well if we get rain then its still ok we need the rivers up for a good trout season later!
Still 21C in Sydney. A nice evening with no jumper required. Trying not to look at the Yarrawonga radar however.
Here you go, in case you missed a frame:
It's all just virga, right?
Thredbo's just started to crack a tonne (km/h wind gusts). Buller not far behind.
Combined with the one behind it currently over SA. I'd say apx 100mm before snow is highly possible.
Is all the snow gone yet?
Tin roof on the lodge at Hotham is still getting a workout.
I observe the forecast for Brisbogan is 30 degrees tomorrow.
Might go to the beach.
Someone left the hose on all night and day at DP :'(
Over 38mm at Perisher since 9.00am. Sigh ....
