    Looks like heavy and persistent precipitation on the Thredbo live cams at the moment. Could well be snow up at the High Noon and Basin cams but its sleet at best lower down.

    That's interesting as it hasn't looked very supportive for snow below ~2200m this afternoon/this evening.

    6deg C at Selwyn. A few drops of liquid sunshine up until 2pm when it looked to have settled in. Which is when I bailed. Anyway will post North Kozi obs from Fri onwards once the real action starts.

    That’s why it’s interesting to hear Thredbo Karels was seeing snow. Very marginal nonetheless.

    Not that surprised. It's still showing between 13 and 14 degrees down at the entry gates.

    Fairly steady drizzle in Thredbo Village over the past hour. Still feels warm.

    It was a wintry mix at best at the very top of Central Spur at 3pm this afternoon. I certainly would not have described it as 'snow'.
