    4.8C in Sydney this morning.

    Ice on the car for only the second time in 14 years at our current house, we're only about 2km from the coast so will have been very frosty inland.

    Crazy low dewpoints due to the current drought is certainly helping.

    Meanwhile in Central Vic it's 7 degC with light rain falling.

    Not the worst day ever but a mostly bleak cold day at Thredbo with moderate winds. The scene at around 1pm on Cruiser chair above The Bowl

    Was about an hour of fresh snowfall around late morning onwards which accumulated to about half a cm of dust if u went looking for it. Mountain is skiing well. No slush even on bottom of runs due to cold temps. Kicking myself for not picking balaclavas this week

    Wind gusts are really picking up here at Island Bend near Guthega/Blue Cow; more westerly than we normally get. Stuff being blown around now. A dark front coming this way - confirmed on the Guthega live cam.

    Strong wind swinging thro Melb this morning...sunny,cloudless......

    Far from extreme winds so far..strong blustery ....making it feel pretty cold outside.

    Cannot remember that the Westgate Bridge was reduced to 60km.hr
    I think it was still 80km/hr.

    Those wind socks get the crap blown out of them....they must replace them every fortnight!
    Wind direction appeared to be from approx NW?

    Windward mammatus. Warm moist air being pushed in front of the cold Front.
    The sun makes the contrast more pronounced.
