Just got the first few drops on the roof here
Temps dropping at BB hopefully down far enough .... Heavy rain in Preston
Getting hammered in Mentone.
Looks like wall cloud over the bay. Hello lightning and squally downpour...
Temp dropped from 16 to 9
Now down to 7.5C
Mayhem of cold wind and rain in St Kilda East now, absolutely pissing down
Seriously awesome watching these dark clouds roll in and swirl. Now I have the wind buffeting the building. Very dark now.
Apart from a brief period, it was foggy at Buller today. Best to stay low.
Snow showers for most of the day, snow got wetter as the day went on.
Below about 1500m(bottom of Wombat, Tirol, Federation, Bull Run, etc), it was freezing rain/wet snow/rain. Not great for the cover, but I don't mind skiing in the rain personally.
Excellent on piste, most of the upper off piste runs were in very good shape. Many of the lower runs weren't so good and I even had to hike over Chalet Creek.....
But very good coverage for this time of year. Though I would appreciate some of what Melbourne is having and a drop in temperatures.
Will be an interesting ride home.
Raining in Thomastown (northern suburbs,melb)
I observe that's sounds like a prediction to me... High accuracy is all you have going for you there.
King gizzard and the blizzard wizard out there right now....
Sounds like BoM was preparing for the worst with this cancelled 'Squall Warning', most likely from the very obvious wall cloud @Edgecrusher posted.
Spot On from down BB way
Radar looks very impressive for Baw
Baw!! Temps dropping very quickly
With the change so should turn to snow
Very quick imo
Change pushing through strezleki Rangers right now, heavy rain squally
Winds and sharp temp drop!!
In 10min from 10.5c down to 8c!!
At 430m asl
This post works best read aloud in a confident 'Clancy of the Overflow' tone.
Stay on topic.
WSW at -1.5 could go either way at BB everything crossed
I'm thinking snow, it feels and looks very cold in Melbourne. Still raining 2hrs after the front has passed. If I could I'd def head to Baw Baw tomorrow for some touring
Yeah, they have had 3.4mm up there now and surely all of that has fallen
As snow? Temp has dipped very quick
Band has nearly cleared now and
I'm sitting on 6c and I reckon we've
Had a good 10mm.
Some nice looking showers pushing up
Behind main band which should hit
Baw Baw as well imo
Snowed about 5cm at Buller, still snowing...
Nice. Village cam looks wet so good to know.
Cool and breezy at Smiggins (Perisher) but no snow falling as yet.
Buller cams look like it copped a quickfire 5cm or so, now clear with the cold air.
Yeah, a little wet this afternoon, so that might be the reason. But definitely snowed.
Visibility is much better now, can see Tirol in the distance.
At LM, the temp was +2.8 at 5:56 pm. Then the temp plummeted to below 0 in about 15 mins. The precipitation increased at about 6:10 and this was the result:
Can't see it.
Is this better?
Much Railings look wet though.
so much better than the alternative
Actually, that was just one minute into the temperature drop. Then they turned that cam off. It was clearer on another cam a few minutes later. The railings on that one are now showing white.
A couple of cm sticking to the trees at Perisher
Same at Thredbo.
Light snow now in PV
Go to cam for desktop obs.
I love the sound of snowploughs in the morning ... A nice dusting at Smiggins, about 2-3cm on the railings. Light snow still falling.
I observe there was a wombat in the middle of upper High Noon a few minutes ago.
Out at 7am (thanks interschools), powder everywhere at Buller. Had some nice runs down LBS and Robin's. And now the sun's coming out.
Nice little top up at BB , don't know why they have bull dozed the road next to toboggan run though Looks like not alot of grooming done either...
Apparently the best day of the season at Ben Lomond today
A few showers sweeping through Melbourne and southern Victoria.
Should get to Lake Mountain and Baw Baw, perhaps a dusting up to Buller.
Got the double bow happening this arvo with the setting sun and a light shower:
Beautiful day at Buller.
Fresh Powder, Sunshine, no queues = incredible day of skiing.
I observe this has been a great season. (Last day for me tomorrow. )
buller bluebird today
I observe a lack of predictions threads. Is it looking that bad people?
