Looking at reports Falls/Hoth, reporting natural depths of ~115-120cm. So loss of ~35cm since the big storm 10 days ago. Didn't see yesterday's report but guessing ~15cm loss in the last 24hrs.
Still looks like a net gain from here IMO if Axs R numbers prove correct.
Not sure about Buller.

Back to rain in thredbo village
Ditto Island Bend. Temps dropped 5 degrees earlier on and then a bit of snow but now back to the "r" stuff. Looks very promising up higher when I can see it though. Island Bend is 1300m.

Plenty of whitecaps on Sydney Harbour.

Message from Charlotte Pass says snow now but they are not opening the mountain yet due to last night's mess. Today is a write off up the hill by the sounds of it.
