Still no wind in Myrtelford for what it is worth. Calm as calm can be all day here.
Quick report from perisher - 10 to 15 WNW in the morning, very sheltered in most areas (WNW appears to be perisher goldilocks zone). Steady throughout the day. Saw first signs of windy change about 3:30 on Mt Perisher - spindrift being blown off the westerly slopes falling throughout the valley. Just got back to the lodge about 5 and the real buster has arrived - will check the wind gauge shortly but I'd say its up around the 30-40 kph area.
Overall, very nice day in the resort, wind was absolutely fine for almost all slopes.
Thredbo top now gusting to 45Kts, looks to have averaged around 30kts all day
Windy but not howling on top of a hill in tallarook. Id say 30knots gusting to 35 or so.
Was windy all day in Adelaide, but nothing now. Temps warm this morning, but very cold during the day. A reasonable rain band during the day, not sure what to make of this for the snow fields...
Certainly looks like it wont be any kind of wash out that it threatened a few days ago
Hotham has wind averaging 80 km/hr gusting to 106km/hr...it's wild up there.
