    Sunny in Jindy, moderate winds, cloudy over mountains, looks like snows on the way this afternoon.

    Unfortunately Mawson got hit by rain yesterday, so has lost a bit of cover.

    Lightly raining at Buller (even at -2.3 degrees!). Wind not that strong yet. Pistes absolutely bullet proof. And they forgot to groom burnt hut which is awesome for kids and beginners uploading northside. Good times. Hopefully we get a bit of snow tonight!

    Drizzly, mizzly wetness all morning at Buller. At least the snow has softened a bit now. Sure hope it turns to snow ce soir though. Absolutely hosing it down at the moment.

    I observe it’s blowing from the West at Buller.

    You will be able to draw your own conclusions from that single data point.

    Temps iffy at Blue Cow. Blowin a gale at Island Bend where there are some very nervous folk in camper trailers. I've been clearing debris from the last storm to windward so it doesn't fly into me tonight.
    Its not as gusty yet, but it is early days for this front.

    Horrible at Hotham today. Low viz, blowing gale force and has had a full freeze/thaw through it. Then the rain started...

    Moderate rain when we left despite the car saying -1C. Hopefully will turn to snow soon

    Currently 2.6 and dropping at Island Bend. It is normally about 3 degrees diff to Blue Cow. It appears to be snow falling higher up in the valley as distinct from the cloud cover coning and going earlier today. We rode the Freedom Chair at Guthega just before lunch and assumed it would be one of the last - chairs were swinging quite a lot.

    Very good. In fact we were very surprised. A bit thin in the usual wind blown places but very nice off piste.

    Just went for a grocery run at Thredbo. Walked through drizzle that didn’t really wet me to any significant degree. Got back and it’s turned to heavier light snow/drizzle. Come on baby, snow!!

    10-20km/h winds.
    No A cooling there.
    You can blame marginal upper levels (until soon).

    Yeah the uppers are certainly improving as we speak IMO.
    So the snow should start falling from here on in.

    My daytime obs and the evening cams combine to tell me about 24mm of rain and 1mm of sleet so far. Looks to be trending the right way now though.

    I observe via bom obs that temps are on the rise for P & Thredbo. Was this always going to be the case?

    Gotta be white precipitation surely. Its now 1.7 degrees with translucent precipitation here at Island Bend, so deduct 3 degrees = snow a couple of hundred metres higher up.
    Winds are easing, so perhaps we will see the nice fluffy white stuff settle in the coming hours???

    Just went for a walk in Thredbo village. Light snow settles at top of vill, nothing at my lodge about halfway up the hill. So current snowline would be just over 1400m

    Only due for a dusting at best in the Village tongiht, I reckon.
    Dropping only to around 1300m IMO.

    Straw galore on Sou-Peri Cam.
