    Coming around the bend this morning. Main front is approaching the NW of Tas. Should hit the coast by 9:30-10am.
    Plenty of speckle in it's backyard.

    32mm for Strahan since 10am & 39mm down the road @ Cape Sorell. Most other centres throughout the West have seen 15-20mm.
    A very moisture-laden system this one.

    Buller, Baw Baw and Lake Mountain all receiving snow overnight. Baw Baw looks to maybe have picked up 5-8cm.

    That feeling when you look at this picture! I would say 5-15cm up top at the look of the cam.
    Looks like 900m across Tasmania.

    Ben Lomond looks like a couple of cms.

    Mt Mawson looks snowy too.

    Baw Baw (LM, Buller and Stirling too) looks like a nice 5cm or so.
