    Buller on 24mm since 9am. At least another 15mm to go IMO.

    Our stay on the hill was short lived, damn flu shot. But one thing plus 1 and I both observed was the cloud pattern which we have never seen.

    There were three distinct layers, up high a clear ice layer, a mid layer and a fast moving lower layer!

    Temps have dropped across the Goulburn Valley.
    Shepparton on nine. Wang still on 14 so another hour or so should see a big difference

    Temp has dropped 5 degrees here at Island Bend in the past 2 hrs, now 6.3. Another 5 or 6 would be good. Piffing down now.

    Spare a thought for thought for me camping down by the lake...just arrived back and it’s still there which is a bonus.

    When does the wind swing Westerly?

    Night is clearing slowly in Melbourne after a good drop of rain, just over 6mm in the can for the city. 11c and feels a lot cooler than it did a few hours ago.

    I observe that four quarters of footy, running on the boundary, in Mentone was not a good choice.

    So much pain and cold, absolutely pouring rain.

    Moving towards colder temps at Hotham now, should be below freezing at Falls and Hotham by 7:30-8pm.
    That means you are probably talking 9-9:30pm for Perisher and Thredbo.
