Suppose it's 20th.....but anyway
Some snow to Lake Mt.
I observe on the satellite the low still fetching cold air from SW of Tassie. Moisture still appears to be delivering into the fetch from the IO/ WA low pressure system.
I'ts not reflected on the surface charts. Its seen best in the 500 winds.
Purely a read from my obs , not model crunching.
This may suprise.
Snowing nicely at Buller.
Fair old smashing.
Chain day at LM. First for the season.
About time for Stirling too...
they got plenty over the last couple of days. just not down to TBJ. Bluff Spur has been filling in nicely since Monday.
Baw Baw will be breathing a sigh of relief also. They posted yesterday on their socials that they were looking at shutting down lifts due to lack of snow and subsequently offering free tickets.
Team Bears sees moisture travelling from the Sth west in the direction Baw Baw ,Buller and Lake Mt.
Wondering if temps are cold enough for snow today ?
Brutal in Prahran Mel at the moment. Southerly with squalls. Hopefully impacting on Baw Baw, Buller and Stirling
Baw Baws temp has been sitting at minus two C.since midnight.....so this is good news...according to BOM.
While our comrades to the north seem to have better conditions....though I am not sure of wind conditions..obviously it's cold up there!
Light snow at Hotham this morning. Good quality snow up high, and a bit of refreeze down low. The light is a bit flat, but the sun is trying to come through. Windy up top as per usual at Hotham.
Just a little bit of snow at Great Lakes Hotel in Tassie.
Has that more classic wintery feel outside today. Fingers crossed the southern mountains receive some loving today
Another one for teckel....meanwhile back over the border Bears observe snow falling on Merritts Live Cam....
quite a wintry squall coming through kew ( melbourne) at the minute , lake mountain buller and baw baw special
lashing down in Port Melbourne too.
Hope it dries out a little for the ride home!
You should see out my window on Flemington Rd... city just disappeared.
I observe hopes and dreams that this Melbourne weather will make it to Hotham
wont. not much anyway. once the flow switches SW Falls/Hotham don't get a lot. They do best in a NW-W flow. Today is all about Buller/Stirling, Lake Mt and Baw Baw.
Plenty of shower activity coming through Melbourne, I don't believe we have gone above 10c today. It's nice to see, it finally feels like winter. For today anyway
I observe we have a ski season
Observe an upgrade on Access R
I also observe that thredbo AWS reporting NW winds
Can see on the Sat image that Tasmania looks to be more that half covered in Snow.
Snowing on the Merritts cam
Looks like snow on the merrits cam
Earlier Sunshine now gone and snowing steadily in Perisher and Thredbo.
its artistic.......does confirm that its cold too......
I observe that Wilson's Prom copped 128 km/h wind gusts this morning. It's a Bass Strait special. Fun times on the ferry I would imagine.
I observe Tuesday felt like Day 0 and yesterday felt like Day 1.
I also observe that we have driven through numerous showers between Wodonga and Corryong.
Main range trip?
Seems to be snowing a bit at Mt Stirling.
Ski tests. Will come back in a month or so.
Perisher had very strong winds up high all day. Out off Eyre it was sandblasting wind blown snow and ice non stop. Light snow started around midday.
Back home now and looking out towards the main range it's windy, overcast and dropping low cloud into the Moonbah Valley.
EDIT. Snowing in that valley at the moment. That's about 1200 ASL.
EDIT 2. Snowing here at home. 1100 ASL. Might lower to Jindy.
Alternating between grauple and light snow at Hotham. Some accumulation in wind drifts.
Dove lake 900m asl
Am seeing accumulation on vehicles at Lake Mountain and perhaps my mind's eye can see something resembling a smile for Teckel...perhaps, or is this yet not enough?
I observe I am in the wrong job!!
Trying hard to snow in Jindy. Probably would be at Leesville above lake level.
I observe I am in QLD a long way away
Odd flake drifting down amoungst the rain drops. Temp hss dropped 2.2degrees in 20min. Good signs.
Snowing in jindy just now. Was going to post video but forgotten how. Doh! Do I need to upload video to something else and then copy URL?
Edit: worked it out, clearly. But not how to mute lol.
accumulation showing on the tables on Merritts cam.
OK, what's "grauple" ? Ive heard of sago which I believe is small frozen particles like short rice that tend to bounce off you. Please explain?
Same thing but with more Austrian flavour?
Confirmed puking at Merritt's. It's sensational.
