    The first trough of this system is crossing into Victoria as we speak.
    Seemed a good time to start this thread.
    Potential snow from Tuesday evening to Thursday, down to 1000m.

    We had short, heavy showers in Melbourne this morning.
    Of course, it cleared after I had ridden to work.

    You should take the hint, and stop clogging out roads. Oh wait, wrong thread sorry...

    Looks to be pulling in some good moisture.

    Micro climate obs preceeding the big show.
    I read this as shear at 900-850 rather than temperature at 500 hPa .

    Rain radar indicates Vic NE and Sth Alps NSW is about to get heavy and persistent rain....Team Bears completed work tasks and got out of the NE early arvo yesterday.Melb overcast but as posted it has cleared after a wet night with moderately heavy rain for four hours prior to midnight.:thumbs:
    Melb appears to have received about 20mm till 9am.(based on Melb Airport and Morrabbin AP obs.)

    Poor buggers in Canberra seem to be getting pretty ordinary conditions at War Memorial for Anzac Service...
    Rain Radar has lobbed right over Canberra...

    0.4C at mount Buller. I'd hazard a guess and say it's snowing/sleeting on the summit.

    It actually doesn't feel like snow is coming. There's no big pre-frontal wind etc. I guess it'll change quickly
