    11cm reported by Falls and 6cm for Hotham. 3cm at Buller. Sounding very wind blown influenced given the obs posted here.

    I note that the BOM have changed their obs to exactly half at -10.5 which seems more in line with other readings about the place.

    Was depressing driving through Hotham this morning - socked in; windy and cold. I promptly turned the car around.

    I observe the depression is now at DP. 1 degree and blowy. Still blue skies to the south.

    At least I waxed the skis and am ready for tomorrow

    Excellent conditions at perisher. At least 10-15cm above 1800m, and dry. Lots of windblown coming in from the main range all afternoon

    Literally got fresh lines every run until lunchtime. Here is a pic of our fresh tracks with @SMSkier at 11:30.

    Rather warm in Melbourne tonight after the rain has cleared. Still 12C, which is the warmest evening for a while.

    Yes I remember and I hope the same thing applies tonight. Temps rise, moisture with an "R" then temps plummet and glorious white precipitation. Radar looked like a PacMan about to devour this area. Hope I get snowed in again . . . . and I hope these winds stop rockin my boat for a while?

    Wind abating after an interesting night in the mtns.
    Temps hovered on wrong side of the 0 at Perisher so it's all been clear.
    Is still running down the windows.
    As Ted says in the other thread.
    Interschool weather.
