    Wind has really picked up with the incoming front.
    Temp has noticeably dropped also

    No sign of the cold air in NSW yet. In Cooma and its steady rain and a crazy 15 degrees. Yikes.

    Down another degree in the last 30min at Falls Creek. Down to 2.6. Should go neg or close by about 4pm IMO.
    I observe that Falls and Buller have fared significantly better than all the other majors for volume of rain.

    Kiama just smashed through the July record high by 1.2C and still rising. This is the second time this week the previous max of 24 (jul 4 1992) has been broken.

    I assume record July temps are going to be reported all over the SE today.

    No matter how much snow comes in the next few days, new bookings for Aug/Sept are probably going to drop off fast.

    Perisher should bring up the ton in the next few hours. Impressive. Access-R on the money!

    The bands passing through Western and central Vic now aren't going to bring snow to the resorts. Still needs some cooling to do but just look at the good gear is passing to the south of port Lincoln now on the radar, due late tonight-v early tomorrow. I think this will be our real turning point for snow in the resorts IMO.

    Meanwhile vommitting down here in Jindy. Still a balmy 12C which probably matches the lake!

    Pretty much hall marks of a strong front though.

    What makes you say that. I think they will. These bands are snow IMO.

    Any word on status of Jindy in gneral and JHP in particular. So glad we bought above the flood level. Lower Snowy Rv must be nearly full so they won't be letting water out of the dam much. Guess we're lucky the snow pack is currently pathetic so should be no more than a close call - unlike the 2012 stuff up.

    Adiabatic cooling - if it's windy enough. Not impossible.

    Then I guess there's nothing to be concerned about. Just a typical July day ...

    That's why picking the moment rain transitions to snow is very difficult.
    Factor in temperature, winds, wind direction & orientation of landscape.

    Still very warm. Just merely speculating. I feel we'll see a dip and maybe some flurries/wet snow with localised cooling and strong winds but will turn back to rain.
    I just think it still has some cooling to do before we see anything accumulate in the resorts.
