    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.

    Got reports of 30+ houses with damage down near Geelong (Grovedale).
    I'm sure the BoM will spend some time checking out the data/obs etc.

    21.3 mm rain here (near Emerald).

    Screenshot from just after 2am when there was no way you could be sleeping.

    Got smashed with a fairly nice rainband around 8–9 AM, delivering a total of 13.3 mm. Mostly cloudy now, and currently 6.8° C (daily max was 7.5° C) with a fierce NW'er.

    Very, very windy at higher elevations. Low Visibility due to fog and a couple of degrees. One gust recorded at PV bang on 100 kph... some snow loss due to rain.

    Unless this ECL forms up and sends it from the south to smash Thredbo I doubt there will be much new resort whiteness.

    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.

    Just
    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.

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

    And dog nuts for Thredbo.

    How's that NW Cloud band. Yowzers.

    Should look a curtailing beauty around 8-10pm once the low kicks off into the Tasman.

    No its heading NW away, as the centre of the low is over SE NSW.
