    Wind has been up all night. Bit of incoming cloud slipping under the radar.

    Looking SW....



    Towards the mountains.



    EDIT: Not that windy. A few branches down though.

    Bugger all moisture in that subsiding front so it's fine.
    1.4mm at Falls sounds like the worst of it.

    Most of humanity was out on the Main Yarra Trail today .
    The weather is still sunny, a bit cloudier and the NW breeze has increased.
    I expect some cold front activity later tonight.

    The weather is Cold and wet here in NE Melbourne this morning.
    Most ski locations in VIC. according the snow cam.s have a light dusting and the snow is visibly captured falling mid air as I type on these cameras. Even Mt.Buffalo and Lake Mt. look white. I will drive up to Myrtleford soon and check the web cameras again at 4 pm.

    It's a bugger Mount Gambier not sending balloons up lately.
    This is ADL @9pm AEST, approximately the same frontal band that is impacting Vic resorts now.
    STACKED.

    EDIT: It just updated with this morning's launch, so refer to blue trace lines for what I was referring to.

    There were many new builds so I didn’t notice sorry!! Beautiful area though, I’m jealous.

    And in other news IT IS SNOWING!!!!

    Wet flakes from Rennix walk (just after Ski Rider) and sticking to the ground from Prussian chain bay.

    This is on Kosciuszko rd by the way.

    OPEN!!!!!!

    And freaking scary haha I’ve never driven to CP before. Low visibility and I watched the road turn white seconds after the plough cleared it. So I turned my newbie self back around to Perisher.

    There is a break in the snow now, some blue sky trying to peek through again.

    EDIT to say I stopped at the lookout above CP, so if there is another gate between there and the village then I don’t know about that.
