    It looks like 15mm of Rain, 2cm of snow so far at Perisher with the system moving away pretty quickly. Will another front hit or is the show over?

    Cold pool has descended at Perisher. That's a pretty temperature slope. Nice moisture too. Everything over 15mm will be the fluffy stuff.

    Apologies you are correct it was @Donzah

    The point being I wished to thank those who gave their forecasts in a level headed manner unlike those that predicted 100mm of rain followed by 100cm.....
