As a newbie here, can you tell me the prognosis for the next few days in Perisher? Heading down today for the week with the family.

Hi welcome!!

I'd say you'll likely see some snow. This is the observations thread so if you keep checking this different users will be logging what they're seeing on the ground at rhe various resorts.

Check the predictions thread for the same dates if you want to see what people are predicting will happen.

I'm at Falls Creek today stuck in the middle of a massive cloud. No sign of the white stuff yet.

No snow at Falls for the last few hours. Had quite a good flurry earlier but it ended all too soon. Lots of thick, heavy cloud around still.

Light snow where? Looking like yet another fizzer to me, but perhaps something is possible overnight?
Early for second scotch, I would have thought, but I might just pour one soon.

Drizzle all the way home from work. Moorabbin to Elwood. Has that winter bite. Looking forward to more to come.
No run tonight, I'm soft with the rain. Sat on the trainer for 45min instead, needed to sweat out the weekend.

Managed to get hope without too much dampness tonight. Roads were wet, but only occasional spits of rain.

Left Camden at 8:30am 4C
Dropped off friend at Perisher 1:30pm 6C Not snowing.
Drove around to Guthega, temps varied from 4C to 7C
Didn't see any snow.
Arrived at Thredbo 3:15pm 4.5C, clouds rolling into valley from the west.
Daughter walked around in thongs comfortably.
Parked car at 6:30. Still not snowing. Did see the occasional flake that could be mistaken as a random insect in the headlights. No rain, no snow, no freezing.
Right now: (7:57pm)
0.7C Dry ground.

0.7 degrees at 4am in Port. Lots of frozen run off on the corrugated roof. As it warmed I watched it slide down the roof channels in large icicles (or whatever you call it when they aren't hanging down). And this is the mid north coast...o_O

Warm coastal SST's working wonders for the weak trough pushing northwards up the NSW coast at the moment.

Good to know the mechanics are lubricated ahead of this weekend's system.

-3.5 in Perisher, snow guns going. Light flakes for about 5mins around 7pm.

I didn't observe the person dismounting the Mitchell TBar on the right side rather than the normal left, and I didn't observe the TBar hurtling towards me. I did observe the TBar hitting my left elbow and chin. Thank god for helmets.
