    I observe that a whole lot of dirt from Inland Australia has ended up in the Tasman Sea.

    They are some amazing webcam images there. There are numerous cams that show snow showers with huge flakes coming through. The ski resorts could learn a thing or two about how these are set up. Thanks for the link. Like. Save.

    Been really coming down in the strezleckis since about 2pm. Temp has sat on 10c all arvo so no real cold air coming through at this stage. I’d say we’ve had about an inch of rain today, also very blowy out there!
    Snow to 700m for southern vic Tommoz so could get interesting

    I'm with the BoM and if anyone has a pic of snow in NSW they would like to share by posting it on here so i can tweet it out, that'd be great - we are interested in showing snow at one end of the state and fires at the other. I'm guessing snow cam images are not for use in tweets and are copyrighted? Attribution will be given.

    I’ll head up later today mate. Plenty of rain so far at PV. Nothing to speak of on the lee side of the range so far (Jindy etc). Just 2 days of strong winds.
