    As there is no OB's thread for these dates, I thought I would post here.
    Looks like this front is about to hit Adelaide. Still only around 7 deg on Mt Lofty and some decent moisture showing on the radar. Hopefully more than a few cm in this tomorrow. 10cm would be a good prelude going into next week. Will also help some of the man made areas as well. Anything white will do.

    Cold and wet in adelaide. It feels 'right' and I'd normally say a good precursor, but this time looking at the sat pics it is likely to disappoint.

    I would guess that lodge is in the direct line-of-fire of the snowmaking system. I was in front valley until chucking out time and it looked to me more like fog spilling over the back range than cloud as such, and the whole snow making system - Mt P and Front Valley - was firing up, with the wind blowing a fair bit of snow eastwards.

    Right now in Smiggins there doesn't seem to be a cloud in the sky.

    Cold in Melbourne still. Had a light shower come through earlier and now bugger all. But certainly feels cold.

    Looks like steady light to moderate snowfalls on the Merritts live cam. Maybe we all underestimated the prefrontal on this system

    Looks like a half decent front moving through Vic. Will it have enough juice to keep going through to NSW?

    Social media report snow falling at Perisher. South Perisher cam appears to support this ..,
    (link below, image irritatingly refusing to load).

    Moderate wind and snowing to a small degree in Smiggins. Settling on the road up to Perisher and our driveway. Snowmaking everywhere was running at pretty-much maximum already at chucking-out time today, so at least some of what you see on the South Perisher lodge cam will be blow-in from that. Definitely some natural snow happening but small flakes and only very slow accumulation rates.

    Snowing at LM, looking at the cams which are showing accumulation on bare ground. But the temp is +1.0. It better get a bit colder.

    2-6cm according to the reports page South of the border... Buller seems (going off the reports) to have picked up the most.

    I was browsing through the Vic and NSW BOM observations and was surprised to see Goulburn Airport had -9.7 earlier this morning. That's rather chilly.

    The plumbers in town will be busy today.
    Water pipes frozen at work in Lithgow.
    There will be a lot of cracked pipes about.
