Sad, but at least it is looking greener.
7mm in the can for Melbourne. Less than I was expecting when I woke up tbh, but good nonetheless.
BOM have a can
It's snowing at Hotham and Falls, per Instagram.
Can't see it on the cams (yet).
Starting to show on Hotham Cams.
Grey heavy skies in the upper Blue Mtns.
*cough cough look the other way *, I found this useful as a visual explanation for members of my flying club.
Did I mention that it is getting more windy in the upper Blue Mtns.
Never forget getting a Subaru bogged down there in similar conditions. 3 boys pushing me driving, all got very muddy but we got the car out. Lucky cos it was the mother in laws car
Nillacootie is pretty low too. Nice to see the whole area a bit greener.
Might not be where people expected it to fall but it still fell...
Yeah it's interesting to see the shift of focus from Central to Western VIC. Well deserved in the more NW parts. There could be a bit more as the low moves further eastward for Melbs at the looks of things.
Makes sense. That’s the thoroughfare of the cold pool and in turn the instability.
And Melbourne got stuck in the "eye" in the middle per low level.
Snowing at Falls according to their gram:
Nice flakes on the Buller cams
Looking very beautiful indeed - as the snow starts to cover the ground.
Nice accumulation at DP as per snow stuffs live post on fb
Result of the front having slowed vis a vis progs?
If progress remains slow, hopefully eek a bit more moisture out of it
Simply the rotation is putting the SE in rain-shadow. Western parts and the NE should and will do well.
Melbourne might do alright 'til midafternoon, but my suspicion is the NE ranges will keep us mostly in rain-shadow though.
We had 3mm in our AWS at home.
As per my other thread, lake-effect pouring it on to the west of Melbourne?
Don't know. It does seem to be sucking up moisture from central Bass Strait, but I would have figured it was too cold to provide too much.
It seems to get a little bit off the Bay and upper Bass Strait, per the radar. Could be noise however.
Still looks like plenty more in the tank for Geelong and surrounds and further north to Ballarat, Geelong itself has done over 30mm in the past 12 hours.
24 hour rainfall.
Been around 60mm fall in the Ballarat area in the past couple of days.
Gonna be a bog up there for the footy tomorrow.
50mm in 14 hours is an impressive effort.
Flood warnings coming soon perhaps.
Top 24 hour falls in Victoria: 59mm at Ben Nevis, 56mm at Aireys Inlet, 53mm at Eversley, 48mm at Meridith and Mt Buninyong.
Son is at a school camp not far from Aireys Inlet. They would have had fun in tents last night
Jeezus, that would have been very wet.
Snowing at thredbo according to the live basin cam.
I would be guessing that the freezing level is above about 1900 m at the moment.
Not a cloud in the sky here in Perth
Autumn doesn't kick in there until the last week of May!
Yeah it should push down in the afternoon.
Beautiful morning in Canberra.
We are getting some nice cool mornings now 6-8 degree range
already pushing down.. its now snowing on the high noon cam and looks like front valley @ PV is turning a nice shade of white
To the Thredbo village. A few hours time.
Just got the word they are coming home early. Soft.
Just starting to drizzle in Tuggeranong.
Still a fair bit of cooling required for snow to fall to Front Valley level. Current temps put the snow level near 2000m. Coldest 850s should hit the NSW resorts by 1pm.
That is the FL. That isn't the level snow is going to fall to which is about 300m lower than that, depending on the upper level conditions.
But nonetheless the Low level temps aren't great for anything below 1800m ATM
Looking at the PV front valley cam doesn't look like it's being snowing there at all let alone turning white evidenced by the current temps of 2.6
I'm seeing on nullschool it been about 10pm before the southerly flow reaches PV and NSW mountains
yr.no has a snowfall over night as well on the 48 hour chart
Wet sleet to Dead Horse Gap (1580m ASL) NSW an hour ago.
Mostly rain, but def wet flakes at the tail end of showers. Still inbound from the North...
NSW resorts getting some love on the socials
Can't imagine it sticking
Koflers at Buller looking quite lovely under a coat of 2-5cm at the looks of things.
Cape Patterson and Inverloch coped a hailstorm and a half this morning. Just saw these pics on a friends fb page.
That is impressive
That's so cool. Closest you will probably get to snow on the beach in Victoria.
Reports of very isolated snow at bawbaw
Didn't we have snow on a beach in Vic a couple of years back?
<stay on topic>......
I thought that was Tasmania?
