    There's a reasonably thick fog rolling into Melbourne as I type this off the bay.... the morning started lovely with a nice sunrise.

    Temp sitting at 9c, be interesting to see where this goes...

    *EDIT. It's not actually fog but drizzle.... looked foggy out my balcony window and I couldn't see any rain / wet roads etc....

    Was just about to say; weak front/clipper coming up through the bay. Cloud layer could be lowered by the 1024 high/subsidence to the West.

    Observations for period before next big fall.

    Still cold in Melbourne.
    Light rain on the ride all the way to work.

    Just did school pick up and number 1 son said it snowed briefly on the way down from Perisher. We did have a weird 3-minute sun shower in town and it said 7c on the car reading at the time.

    Jindy - temps are dropping, wind is building, lots of threatening cloud. Sure feels like something is on it's way.

    Some cold air being ushered up the NSW south coast this AM. The 5am Nowra balloon puts FL ~1000m.
    With clouds holding back a heat inversion/dry slot.

    Vic Alpine NP & NSW Main Range looking snow-laden on Himawari8 this AM.

    The snow cover and skiing @ Perisher this week has been exceptional. Cold temps have kept the snow dry, wind blown powder has been sweet and the cover has held up all day. Minimal crowds, no queues, bluebird days & great skiing.

    Great satellite photo. Main Range is a big place but looks tiny on this. BHPs just a white smudge. Might look a bit bigger mid next week.

    Not much to report from Buller.
    Was nice weather on the way up.
    Still heaps of snow in the Village.
    Quite a few taxis stopping in stupid places on the kerbside.
    Snow feels relatively crisp underfoot.
    Should be pretty good skiing tomorrow.
    Will be watching Sunday, but looks like wind hold conditions, so early departure perhaps.

    Got chillier as the day went on in southern WA. Not heaps of precip, but regular showers.

    Felt genuinely cold by this afternoon, a rare day when you need an extra layer being outside. Stock had their rumps firmly parked into the SW'ester by tonight.

    Dusting likely on the Stirlings again tonight, but probably not as heavy as earlier falls this season.

    Interesting, given Buller's AWS is on +2.5C... The micro-climate of Buller has been engaged.

    I have witnessed a 5 minute large snowflake shower in the village back in Apr/May 2002. I checked the AWS and it was on +4C.
    One of the oddest things I've ever witnessed.

    I am sure there used to be superstitions about the weather on Mount Buller for the Yowong-Illam-Balluk people back in the day.

    Woken up by some strange rumbling noises(Adelaide) last night.
    There were no earthquakes officially recorded though.
    Maybe it was the snow gods preparing for something big ;)
