    I wonder when/if Bogong High Plains road will be closed past Falls Creek resort in the coming days.... Seems likely as they tend to close it even with a few CM's on the ground. Party Poopers.

    Looks like Baw Baw did pretty well.
    They should get fairly strong falls today with this next trough about to hit from the south west imo

    Currently 4c at home(strezleckis south vic) but with this colder air about to hit I wouldn’t be surprised to see bit of sleet in the heavier showers.

    Mount tassie currently 1.7c at 750m asl

    Have seen this before. Rare because usually the frontal cloud band (which has enough moisture to make it over the hills) is too warm for snow and you get rain instead. Shows how cold this sucker is. It could get ugly down there later today given he blobs of fluffy goodness in the following trough. Thundersnow.

    Then likely to get bashed from the south properly on thrusday.

    We'll be talking about this weeks weather for the next 50 years!

    Probably @chicski ......but my plans were thwarted.... need a new plan to get out and tour there once this settles. I doubt they will reopen if it keeps snowing. The clearer was busy as it was from Wilson’s to the resort!

    The way i see it is we get a shittonne of snow in which case the resorts will open on the weekend. Or the road will be cleared to CP and we can go touring.

    Balmy 3c in sunny Cooma. Saw some snow on the hills around Bredbo and local visitor centre steering oldies in 2wd via Canberra rather than Tumut.
