    Still cold with the occasional shower Table Top. Wind a lot more from the west with a little bit of south.

    I observe the radar for NSW has most of the rain band heading north east. Look out Central Tablelands :)

    This was near Mt Coree Brindabellas around 1200m at 1330 only started to come down when I got there and after 5 mins or so it was starting to settle on the ground coming down quiet hard when I left. It was snowing down to about 1000m

    I'm observing a model , and this is more for @Belly . There is a wee little cold pool and associated moisture being slung your way at present. ETA 10pm-1am . I think the higher burbs of Canberra might see some flurries .

    So it's 3:45 and puking at Hotham. Warmed up earlier, but cold again. Lifts shut soon so if this continues for a few hours, plus what's blowing in, tomorrow will be sweet

    I had a lunch meeting with the builder managing my home renos and drove back along Lanyon Drive looking towards the Brindabellas, the mountains were socked in cloud but you could see that it was snowing heavily on the front range behind Tuggeranong.

    It's come up fairly windy again this arvo at perisher.
    Anyone know what tomorrow's weather looking like wind wise, deciding on back/slack country or Charlotte's Tuesday deal.

    It looks to be clearing outside a little, sun poking through now and then, clouds thinning, can see occasional blue sky.

    I have a tip for the owners of those vehicles. Start the digging out at the front bumper to ensure that it's the correct rego number. Otherwise they might dig someone else's car out.

    As I moonlight doing some window cleaning now and then... (yeah yeah no stalking references) its best to keep your rubbers protected . Personally I'd pop them in a plastic bag and leave on my window.

    No, wipers up is exactly the right thing to do - if you want them to be snapped off, either when you're removing the snow, or when it melts enough that it starts to slide off in a big, icy chunk, (taking the encased wipers with it).

    Honestly, can't people figure this one out for themselves!

    Wrap each wiper in a supermarket plastic bag and leave the bloody things down.

    Wind looks absolutely brutal at the top of Perisher. Guthega Live cam is shaking around really violently.
