    Snow flurries in Tylden in the Macedon Ranges around an hour ago at 580 metres and around 2 degrees. Hopefully see a little more on Wednesday. :)

    Buller RMB recommending 2WDs do not go up the mountain.

    "Mt Buller Mt Stirling Resort Management wishes to advise guests travelling to Mt Buller in the coming days that there is snow on the Mt Buller Tourist Road.

    Please note that this creates hazardous driving conditions if you’re not in a suitable vehicle.

    2WD vehicles may encounter limited driving capabilities and we recommend 2WD vehicles do not access the Resort during these conditions in the coming days.

    Please keep an eye on the weather forecast here and changing road conditions."

    Maybe they don't have the full snow-clearing crew yet, or something like that?

    Not sure if PV BOM finally froze up - but that's apx 30mm since precip began last night.
    http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDN60801/IDN60801.94915.shtml

    PV was largely useless last year - so if it's still bucketing down right now - then we can assume PV BOM will be mostly useless again this year when its snowing.

    All below 0C too! Plenty cold enough right now, -3.7C in the village.

    Awesome dump so far and what timing, the resorts would be jumping for joy.

    Who will open first??

    I observe the wind is strong enough in SYD CBD to get the building sway to uncomfortably loud levels (the creaking sound)

    The angle makes it look less, just sayin.... if they took the photo from right on snow level, and half buried the camera to do it, it was absolutely look like 28cm. The lower down the point of view the higher the object will look.

    This may seem like its off topic, (mods please humor me with this hastag for this season only. I promise it is not off topic...)
