We'll all be rooned said hanrahan.
Been snowing lightly on and off all morning at Falls. Little bit of r@1n in the mix. Everything on wind hold except Gully
Looks at AXS R this morning. Bit of red for two days from here on. 1m setup.
A good chunk of that last year was snow. This was all rain.
Yeah up high will still get heaps.
Snow from first light is pretty much as EC had it this morning.
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.
Yeah Axs R has snow level rising, 4-10pm looks marginal/dicey again. But not silly warm so hopefully no more damage at least.
What a song @Kletterer, actually listened to that CD a few weeks back!!
Better provide an obs, not cold in Canberra this AM walking the dogs (7am) and walking to work (9am).
Obs --f..ken poured down as we (me and P) waited outside for the buses for P's school camp.
Now sunny and mild
The wind has swung to the SW in Sydney and is attempting to blow flags off poles.
Discussed to no end on previous pages. I think it's behind many of us now. Just saying... Not a pretty thing to look back on.
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.
I just saw a bird get blown out of a tree by a gust. It was as funny as it sounds.

It 'feels' colder in Canberra having just stepped outside.
Snowing at DP, strong blow in. Moderate precip rate and intermittent with good sized flakeage. Keep it up huey!
Pretty sure the anemometer broke last night, it's been zero since midnight. Before that was mega winds.
Looks like the wind gauge got blown away at midnight if you look at the 24 h history.
Actually it was an Indian Myna, which made it even funnier.
Na na definitely calm up there im telling myself as I look round the house for my motivation
Thats a change. I was in Cbr last thurs/fri. In a tee shirt
Thats a LOT of cold air South of Aus.
Cruiser cam is puking snow. Sunny warm and blow a black dog off it's chain in Sydney.
Mount Gambier @ 10am this AM (arvo airmass for the Mountains), has 850 temps lowered, with marginal warming in the uppers.
Says to me these levels are here to stay for the remainder of the day. A positive outcome after the last 18 hours. An easy 10cm today above 1600m IMO.
Drove down Hotham this morning. Car thermometer said -1 down to about 1600m.
Are car thermometers the temperature equivalent of Perisher's powerade bottles?
Looks to be snowing on front valley cam perisher.
NSW cars are calibrated in 5 deg. increments each year at rego time.

It annoys me when the snow symbol comes on in my car, and it clearly isn't.
Jumps on, and chimes at me +3.5C in my VW...Annoys the heck outta me.
Just the right temp to invade Poland.
My subie thermometer is broken. Currently reading 33 degrees.
