    I observe the prediction thread sitting on 18k views (in not even a week).
    I wonder how many of those are the Grasshoper on the CNTRL+R.

    Beautiful looking day outside in Sydney, the air feels crisp and it doesn’t seems as Smokey as it’s been recently thankfully :p.

    Still warm in Melbourne but skies darkening and a sense of foreboding that precedes a really good storm.

    Too warm now. But some cold air coming looking at the satellite. Should hit mountains after midnight IMO.

    Rain clearing out of Melbourne City now, we had a good drop - just over 6mm. Not overly cold - sitting on 13 ATM.

    27.1C in Sydney today. Last chance for a beach day tomorrow before the effects of this system creep north. Wish there was some rain due with it

    Bit warm for Buller overnight. Looks like it snowed early but no accumulation.

    Currently snowing on South Peri cam, negligible accumulation though.

    Could sure feel that pre-fontal this morning at Kiama/Gerroa. All very confused from one wind gust to the next. Warm one moment hint of cold the next, and ... Now feels to be cooling nicely.

    Meanwhile, a few hope fulls at "backdoor"

    Hotham on -2.3 degrees now
    Buller on -1.9 degrees
    Falls on -1.0 degrees

    Buller got a bit of a dusting (and seems rather busy for the pre-season):

    Hotham earlier this morning:

    Sydney was gorgeous today - started off cloudy but cleared by lunchtime and was absolutely sparkling. Sat in the sun this afternoon having beers after soccer. Felt like late summer still.

    I observe we really don't want all their hot air before ski season. Happy if they bunker down in their own electorate.
