    Smells and looks like a 'snowy' system from Sydney for sure.

    Looks like a dusting of snow above ~1800m for NSW resorts - hate to say it, but as expected.

    Great shot! In Victoria this would result in a nice big fine for an unsecured load. That's if the car hadn't rolled.

    Got to love the 'home of the free'.

    Spoke to a staff member over easter who said they will run anytime "off-peak power" in May, they were already to go on the easter weekend. Come june, they run when its cold enough regardless of electricity cost.

    Cams reveal a dusting of snow across all resorts overnight, down to maybe 1400m.

    Bit of a fizzer really. What happened to the 30mm that G-Frog-S was forecasting?

    @Claude Cat was bang on the money - not a lot of moisture in the system

    I note Baw Baw and Hotham specifically and Vic generally did better this time. Not a total fizzer.
    (I'm sure next week it will NSW's turn!) ❄️

    Southerly system...
    5cm for Vic, dusting to 3cm for NSW. Exactly what most were expecting IMO.

    Seems about right, but very warm inversion above 3k, this would've inhibited much snow below the FL.

    Yep. And just a tad warm for Baw Baw, they would have done well otherwise.
