    Cams show snow settling at bb but thin, vanishing at Buller. A disappointing result from this system. Remind self; it's May.

    It is raining and cold here in NE Melb. This could fall as snow in the Vic. Alps. Usually 14 C. and rain in Melb. would mean Mt. Buffalo would get a few flakes of snow but so far zero snow has fallen up there.

    Doesn't appear to be pushing far inland, heavy showers in Melbourne northern suburbs, but petering out towards coldstream and kilmore gap. Steady at 9°C with a 9°C dew point for last few hours in South Morang.

    Seems to be a lot of volatility in the weather atm. Lot's happening around the Pacific.

    Light but steady rain at Jindy North Shore, loose three degrees and it would be snow.

    Good night

    Currently 1.2° C and lightly snowing here…and well I'll be carnted, look at that yellow storm cell on the Canberra radar! That's a snow dump with my name on it come morning, if it manages to hit me this far west. I suddenly love ECLs!

    Forecasts really did flop dead on this one for my region…brutal. Not even close to observations. I'm not mad at all, though!

    Sydney seems to be in the eye of whatever is about to bomb offshore. Rain is rotating around us for now. The wind has backed off a bit but I guess it’ll ramp up again soon

    Mount Boyce (1,000m ASL) down to -0.1°C at 1am so 900mb temps have already over-verified against AXS-C and EC.
