    Buller calling 5cm with a refreshingly honestly worded report. Interestingly the moisture has kept filling the BoM can overnight but it doesn't seem to have actually been snowing much based on the cams.

    A lot of wind out there though. Exposed reaches will only have a few cms on it.

    That's the other interesting observation. 120kph gusts yesterday, then literally dead calm since 130am based on the BoM wind obs.

    About 10-15cm on the ground here at smiggins, looking very nice and white.

    Wind doesn’t seem to bad at this stage either.

    Photos of course

    So about 32mm of precip all up at Perisher, with around half of it being clear. Yr.No was pretty consistently forecasting something in that ballpark from as far back as 7 days ago, whilst others were frothing over big numbers...

    Interestingly higher than OCF, but I have noticed that seems to be a trend in NSW alps and the human forecast by the BOM tends to be higher.

    Still registering small amounts at Perisher too.

    Just a slight dusting for LM :( Temp didn't drop below 0 until about midnight, and no precipitation until 4am. So, hardly anything.
    Shaping up for a shit year.

    Very fine snow still being blown into your face here at Perisher. Most lifts on wind hold. Visually (from the comforts of the cafe now) it looks to be easing.

    I love it when people really understand when winter starts

    All the chairs except Village 8 are on wind hold at PV so far.

    Falls reporting 12cm overnight according to socials. The table at Cedarwood would seem to corroborate that.

    So Perisher turned negative with precipitation at 15mm. Now 35mm down. I'm calling 15cm of snow from my experience of mm to cm conversion. Not a bad effort.

    Thredbo - all lifts running
    Ranged to get first tracks and was pretty amazing. All chopped up now. Not so busy.

    Lightly snowing in the village now.

    Windy AF top of kosi lift and Icey sketchy

    15cm seems about right from mid station

    Left the Thredbo about 45 mins ago,

    Kosi was on wind hold and cruiser I think.

    Caught snow gums up and was brutal. Must have been 100km winds and sustained.

    Snow wind scoured and Icey.

    I see the meter is still ticking over slowly at perisher. How much is actually new precipitation versus wind blown leftovers from last night?

    Gusting to 80-90 km/h. God chance of some windblown, but only marginal ticking over with the AWS registering only 1mm since 9am.

    Dead timber hill possibly the most windy location in the world this morning. Snow was nice and dry. Nice morning stroll; even at the expense of my bases

    ~20,000 strikes through interior NSW/Vic last night.
    Interesting, as virtually no obs came through this thread about it. Looks like it fell apart prior to hitting the GDR.
    Also a report of either a severe micro burst or Tornado @ Axe Creek, Vic last night too

    Wind scour and brutal winds story the day at Thredbo. Thought at first some nice filling in should happen through day but the scour instead slowly moved down slope as the hours passed.

    Nice snow though when you found it.

    Winds finally easing at Island Bend and lifts starting to open at Blue Cow, though it looks like visibility would be average up high. Perhaps some light snow in that cloud as well?
