Mate they are sensational comparison photos...perfect for us at home that can often have a hard time judgin jsut how much has fallen.....my pics of the week. Thank you !Yesterday....
There's heaps up high based on what I saw till 4 pm on Eyre plus the overnight falls!!
...........the Poma cable looked so low that you might hook your neck (would still be 3 mtrs but) so in that area I can only guess how much landed there, but a bl**dy lot.........Bob
so a good 40-50cm in the Eagles Nest measuring area, for the last few hours @DonzahKosi Express is still open, but it is blowing a gale and white out conditions are prevalent. Would say there has been at least another 15-20cm since lifts open.
I'm off to measure Perisher at the top of the sun valley T..its what 1937m asl? Victorians can only dream of such loft.
I might be wrong but "showers" can start and end suddenly..and can get very heavy quickly.... while "rain" or "snow" has more consistant fall rates and duration.I observe BOM are persisting with the term "snow showers" in predicting 40-70mm of precipitation at Perisher today. I'd like to see their definition of "snow".
As per obs (and a flaky AWS site), there have been breaks in the bands hitting both Perisher & Thredbo.I observe BOM are persisting with the term "snow showers" in predicting 40-70mm of precipitation at Perisher today. I'd like to see their definition of "snow".
Kinda what I am getting at above... If it's inbound from the West you'll get some shadowing and breaks on the lee side of the MR (where Thredbo & Perisher sit). SE flow would not have nearly the shadowing as it'll be straight come straight up the guts of the main range - meaning a more sustained precip period.I've found "snow" is usually associated with onshore SE systems...oddly
