    Eyes locked onto that Snow Stake and it's on a tear, right now.
    3-4cm/hr which is inline with EC.


    I reckon it's only got another hr or so to go though.

    It was really bucketing down here for a few hours. Dry fluffy stuff too, so it will settle down a bit I imagine.

    Looks all for LM/BB and maybe Buller, Tassie producing a rain shadow for further east.

    We've been told yes. In bad news for normal punters squads are on all day instead of half day now though so queues likely to be same as today or worse despite the additional uplift...

    Temp is currently -1.3c at the High Perch ,18.6mm in the jar ,wind is a gentle 6kmh from the west. Conditions are good for what we want. Looks like about 15cm on the Perisher stick so far ,maybe another 10 overnight is a good result.

    Well at this point any snow is good snow and very welcome! 15-20cm in NSW and 25-30cm in VIC so far will certainly help get things going

    No not tonight but we do get some when the bigger storms come through. We are only at 954 masl albeit tucked up in the shadows of the Westfall around the Tooma/Maragle Mountain area. There was some more "solid" rain a while ago that stuck to the windows briefly but to call it snow would be a stretch.

    Seems to have stopped snowing in Vic now, and CBR Radar is showing the back edge of the moisture band approaching NSW Alps. Hoping the extra height of the Snowys will squeeze a bit more juice out though.

    Still snowing lightly at Moonbah 1100 ASL. Not a lot, we missed the rain a Jindy picked up and it’s melting pretty quick. Lawn is holding a bit more and is white though. Pic out the back. Dogs inside.
