    Watched the change come through from Vista on Mt P a few hours back.....





    Set in now.... hail, sago, poor mans powder or whatever folks want to call it. Great for rebuilding the surface. Fills things in quick and it’s sticking in the cold surfaces now. Zero degrees in PV car park.

    Exit stage left till tomorrow!

    Keep the reports from Mt. Buller coming in please. I am packing the car today for a day trip to Mt. Stirling tomorrow based on the theory that there will be fresh snow falling down to TBJ overnight.

    Ms Bunn has forecasted a lower amount of snow to fall overnight as the trough comes in. She was predicting 20 cm + but now is looking at 15 cm at Mt. Stirling. However this is the best we can manage for a few days until we see what the next system does, so bring it on.

    That was a weird ride home. Windy as from the North and threatening to rain. But almost nothing. Not what was showing on my radar when I left work.

    Raining a bit now but wouldn't call it heavy

    Temps trending the wrong way at the critical moment at Buller. Rain has just hit the base of the mountain. Keep 'em crossed. Half a degree could be the difference between board or skis tomorrow...

    Heavy band incoming to Baw Baw.
    A more moderate band hitting Buller in the next few hours.


    Heavy rain in Melbourne.
    Always a good sign.

    What altitude are your digs at? Looks wet as on the village cam and temps look super-marginal. Glad to hear it's snowing. Started hosing it down in Sawmill again just now.

    Maybe a few mm of snow yet. Cold air just hasn't made it north into NSW - GFS now shows 1-2am arrival - about 12 hours later than earlier forecast. And drying up fast behind it. Other than the "mythical beast" - it's a pretty dry outlook for a while.

    This seasons f*cking blowing. There’s weather, but so many marginal systems. If only it was 1 degree cooler, or 2, whilst we’re at it might as well add 500m vert.

    There is about 10 cm of fresh snow on my car at dinner plain. It had been snowing big sticky flakes for at least 2 hours.

    Wind? AWS says there is none. Which would be a player in the rain.

    Gusty wind with fine snow blown around at Charlotte Pass. Hopefully we’ll get what falls and a bit blown into the bowl from the Main Range. Temp around zero.
