    No obs thread? @janesweather was right, the vibe is lacking...
    Band of showers approaching Port Phillip Bay out of the WSW. Resorts in the negs already. I am not sure this band will make the distance but a dusting by the AM might pump some people up around here...

    Going off BoM AWS it's snowing in Tas above 1000m (BoM forecasted snow to 400m tonight!?)

    old skool charts and satellite looked sweet.
    I observe a couple weeks of big mofo blockers has fizzed the fizz out of this since the coating end of May / early June.
    WNW on the Coast , it feels like and it looks like it's going to swing anti cw.
    situation normal for June.
    the vibe is a changing.
    be prepared.

    Winds have increased dramatically here at Island Bend, looking up at Blue Cow mountain. Gusts are now like late July or August (batten down the hatches and everything else as well). Ominous, dark clouds appeared over the high peaks but have blown clear now (Can see the guns blazing) but whilst it's bitterly cold with the wind, real temps are warmer than ever +3.4 degrees.

    Three fifths of eff all precipitation in Thredbo today. Breezy and cool, mostly sunny.

    Looks like some cloud at top station right now, but not looking very snowy.

    -7c at the top of NSW resorts and -3c in Jindy. Moisture building in the westerly flow on the yarra radar. Expecting a snowy drive down the hill this afternoon.

    Winds have strengthened considerably at Moonbah. Feels like a frontal system spinning off the range. We have not had strong daytime wind for ages which is unusual in winter. Maybe it's associated with what your seeing?

    Wasn't cold as predicted here in Melbourne, and we got light showers on our our morning ride, which wasn't expected (until this afternoon).

    And it appears to be heading north further than origionally thought, hopefully it will mix with the cloud streaming in from the NW, for a little moisture injection

    Was freezing fog most of the afternoon in Perisher - flat light and moist air. Windy enough that it wasn't pleasant skiing overall, to the extent that I actually went back to the lodge a bit before closing time (blush).

    Trying to snow to a degree now in Smiggins as posted above, but I'm pretty sure this is not the dump we are looking for.
