    For a piss warm night in the mountains - it sure is cold on the coast today. Hope thats a good sign. As it was like early summer here yesterday at Gerroa. Nearly went for a dip - but that would be truly jinxing the rest of the season now wouldn't it!

    Firm first up this morning and getting pretty soft by afternoon. Sunshine was nice but definitely needs a top up. Hopefully have something more interesting to provide obs from falls tomorrow.

    Got to 17c in Canberra was balmy. Also i notice that Canberra has only had 22mm or rain so far this winter its really dry out there. If we dont get alot more its going to be bad in Summer and Snowy Hydro might have issues with power production. Eucumbene is barely 20% still.

    Chances are she's from my postcode (Bondi) and drives a Range Rover; complete with destroyed low-profile rims.

    In other news Portland Harbour just dropped 7C in 1 hour. Cool change, is upon Western Vic.

    Main frontal boundary passing through Gippsland at the moment.
    trailing embedded low/trough (showing better on the loop) highlighted below, in the Bight.
    This band should bring the heaviest falls through the mainland Alps, 8pm-12am tonight.

    Had to pop up to village briefly this morning. Confirm dusting at village level at Buller. SL about 1400-1500m I reckon, had been lower earlier by looks of it. Was raining lightly in day car park when I parked.

    Wind before a front...Then it drops.
    Then picks up again when the front actually arrives.
    Its pretty common.
    The pressure gradient gets squeezed in front of the front like a bow wave.
    However as that wave passes ... it drops slightly.

    Pretty marginal at falls the last hour or so. Came back in as we were getting a bit damp. Hoping it improves soon.

    Sago has stopped bouncing off people now at the bottom of Perisher. Punters looking very wet as they come inside. Normo fears not: when I mentioned it was now wet outside as he headed for the door, he quickly responded by saying "It's a winter sport. You get wet sometimes!" Will be acvumulating white gold up higher.
