Was hard driving away from Jindabyne today and missing the action on the hill. A lot of low level clouds on the ranges on the way through and temps dropped from around 8 at Cooma down to 5 and rain around Lake George. Temps are dropping in the CT's and moisture moving through so perhaps a dusting tonight.

The low looks to be picking up some moisture around SA/Vic border so hopefully some more snow for the hills overnight. Look to be snowing on the cams at Perisher but not showing on the AWS for a few hours. Any live reports?

Clearing at Jindabyne but it appears the action is still taking place on the mountain. Bright moonlight highlights the thick cloud formation still menacing up high. You can see the odd snow shower reaching out into the lower hills in the lee of the alps. It felt cold enough to snow here but the temp has now risen to 3.5 degrees lakeside, so unlikely. Cams are just too frozen to know what conditions are like up top now.

It's snowing on the cams, not overly heavy, but snowing none the less. The Perisher Valley AWS is extremely susceptible to freezing and can stop ticking over moisture, especially when snowing.

Yer, no change in measurement since 2:00pm when it dropped to -3. Friend advised it is still snowing but now lighter and wind has abated. Tomorrow will be the day.

dry across the mountain. Snowed all day with the last flakes a couple of hours ago. Road now being cleared and clouds lifted. One for the archives. Ski stoke is widespread.
Kept the phone in the pocket on the hill but the village looking a picture.

Great photos, partic the second one.

Reminds me of the year the snow gums were all snapping from the weight of snow....

Truly beautiful, thank you

I observe channel nine news reporting / warning avalanches possible in Vic resorts. Police recommending no one go BC.
with 70cm (+windload) snow on leeward aspects in the last 3 days and a heap of reported weakness layers, I'm not really sure why you would consider it on anything other than the lowest of low angle terrain...
