Little embedded low in the first front bringing some storms for @Adelaide
Feels to warm and has been all night , lowest temp at the high perch was 3.8c. My guess would be rain only so far ,4.2mm for me. Temps should drop tonight and next couple od nights but I guess most of the moisture will already be gone by then.

Some more weather for SA on radar.
2 degs sleety/snow mix late this arvo on Ben Lomond , it would be snowing now for sure

Light snow falling and settling at hotham. Not unexpected or surprising. The complete stilness/lack of wind is the what is strange.
Vic's Alpine region is at the centre of the low's formation.
Best depicted by models (950mb shear plot equates to winds ~800m elevation).
Looking out the window at Buller direction there's snow just on the top bit of the pinnacle. So snow down to 1400m.
Similar up here. Cold with not a breeze at all.
Can see it in the distance just sitting atop the mountains with the front edge overhead.
Certainly cold enough at the high perch ,just nudging 2c ,no wind and no precipitation atm.

The low is weak as atm. May benefit when and if it goes over the eddy current off the coast.
