    Perisher this morning it is sunny with a mix of blue sky and ominous cloud. Very windy, no precipitation at the moment. The ground is wet.

    Almost tropical in Hill Top 2628. Grey clouds overhead with solid white clouds building over the mountains.

    Hopefully it will get very wet later.

    Falls Creek in the positive when I last looked but dropping and it has been raining most of the night. Lots of snow around Cope area of BHP gone as far as I can see (when the cloud breaks). Over 30mm of rain I suspect at Falls and the Mitta River is on the rise which indicates mostly rain and snow melt. Most of the system has passed it seems or heading north.

    Moonbah 1100 ASL....

    5mm in the gauge. Needed badly as paddocks and lawn very dry.

    Big fat wet snowflakes have just started to fall.....very little wind at the moment.



    More pics to follow if it settles but the ground was quite warm so anything landing is melting straight up......

    EDIT: ... biggest flakes I’ve seen all season including over 95 days up the hill. 20 cent piece size plus..!! Pics probably won’t show up so well.

    I reckon the snow started falling here before the ski fields. At a much lower level. Have a close neighbour staying at PV. Based on his obs and mine, I reckon it hit here prior. A friend about 10 mins away at 1250 ASL has snow laden trees already.

    Here’s a pic just now at home.....lost a lot to melt early on but garden is ok with that.

    Snowing in Jindy, but only 0C at 1950m at Thredbo TS. Almost no change in temperature with 1000m difference in elevation. Shows the low level snow potential for later this evening!

    Not only is it snowing it Jindy, there is virtually no wind. So the big fat flakes are just floating down. BOM AWS for perisher also shows very light winds.

    Not surprising as the models did have the cold pool coming out of the S/SE this arvo. Very unique inbound this one.

    Hotham: r**ining and windy most of the night and until mid morning, then the precip and wind stopped. Got a bit foggy/cloudy at higher elevations. The random number generator thermometer thingy outside the day lodge was reporting -9 when we came back in around 3pm. While that was not credible, it did feel colder and light snow started around that time and has been coming down reasonably steadily since.
