    Looking at the temp progression from Buller.... it dropped .7 deg as the front came through & has held its own since....

    Could translate to Falls maintaining the -ve temps....???

    PLEASE !!!!!!

    See if it gathers on the cars, but I reckon this would be snow further up the hill...

    That's cos the radars don't measure precip in the mountains, just the stuff approaching it.

    It does look wet, hopefully it's better further up the hill. Check it out in the morning, there is still heaps left to come through by the look of the radar....

    but when lookout hill is 4.8C and its a front from the west i wouldnt be too hopeful it will be snow. I think praying for it to dry up before it warms up tomorrow morning is the best option unfortunately [​IMG]

    And normally im overly optimistic.

    say goodbye to the vic season, anything below 1700m is about to be washed away in the next 12
    hours unless your still a fan of that thin track of manmade up at hotham. :out:

    This is about the most moisture I have seen heading for the mountains this season. Too bad it is from the wrong direction and temps are high. Temps are not droping heavily in central Victoria so the cold air is a way off yet.
    At least it is coming at night when the temps are cooler so we may get 'some' snow.

    guru - u should stay away from that bong, its not snow.

    it looks like some decent rain on the radar but as yet no totals over 10mm in VIC, so its not very heavy. Also there may be a fair bit of interference from the clouds giving a false sounding.

    That is definitely snow on the FC cam now (10.54). Big wet chunks. Should be OK by morning but will stay wet tomorrow.
