    3pm over Melbourne:
    -22C @ 500mb looks hopeful.
    FL around 2.5k ASL though - that needs to change first.
    Wagga showing a few degrees cooler (@ ~800mb).

    Bands of cloud coming in from the west. Looking towards Perisher through the Snowy River gap from Dalgety hill. Still dry down here in the shadow of the alps

    To say I got rained off down in Portsea at 3.30 is an understatement.

    Thunderstorm warning cancelled for Victoria. Mostly a fizzer (in TS) over the metro area except down the lower peninsular.

    There's a small thunderstorm moving through south eastern suburbs ATM by the looks of it. I'm sitting watching tv and noticed a flash out the window looking to the bay.

    Looking at the radar loop it developed quite quickly.

    Cold air boundary looking very obvious to me, Just starting to clip Portland (SW VIC) now.
    6-7 hours from the Alps yet IMO (5-6 from Buller).

    There was a similar boundary over the Alps at 3pm. So was hoping the current band was cold enough. Time will tell.

    Good heavy showers here in the Dandenongs although we seem to have escaped most of what they got just down the hill.

    Nearly got me on the ride home. I was in the garage not 60 seconds and it started pouring. It didn't last long though.

    Had a bit of rain come down for a while sitting in a pub looking at it in Canberra. Pretty good regardless of the snow loss if thats the case as we need the rain. Not to much but it came down pretty good for a period there in town.

    The 30min obs for Thredbo are down, but I can see that at 9.30pm it was 1.2 degrees at the top of Thredbo, but looking at http://m.bom.gov.au/nsw/thredbo-top-station/

    According to BOM @ Perisher Valley at the same time (ie 9.30), it was 1.1 degrees.

    It could be wrong, but it has been dropping during the day, so it isn't out completely. Either way, it isn't snowing at ~1660m

    Oh, and if you have a look at all the other weather stations there, they aren't correlating with anything that I can see, so, I'd say Thredbo is accurate enough...

    ~1800m is down to where it's expected IMO. No surprises thus far.
    Snow might fluct a little lower tonight but proper accums are from ~1800 up.

    Radar starting to ring the bell on Vic.
