    No doubt about it.
    512 composite ADL radar looks like maybe some interference but looks LARGE ATM.

    Actually, now I can see why there was interference... There was an ocean falling from the sky. 20mm in 30 mins.:eek:

    Looks more like the limit of radar sensitivity/lack of tilt to me.

    Really quite light rain here in Melbourne; lots of rainshadow and it's passing mostly to the west.

    On the ride in (east to west), it was just spitting until Cremorne, and then just light rain through to St Kilda rd.
    Appears to have cleared momentarily. Very warm.

    Looking like NSW might miss a bit of the really wet stuff.

    Is that colder air with a front through Adelaide now?

    FL for MEL circa 2400m, ADL FL circa 1800m @9am this morning
    Give it 8-10 hours before a chance of seeing a wintery mix on the highest peaks IMO

    Looks like snow from Meadows up on the Thredbo cams. Maybe even village... Definitely on the High Noon cam. Or am I seeing things... Temps don't 'say' snow...

    30mm+ in Buller since last night. Some fanatics spent the morning lapping Bourke St hiking up by foot. Official day of wind hold.

    Chairs on Blue Bullet have just had their seats flipped up and detached for storage. The optimist would say there's an expectation of snow, the pessimist says is game over for this season.

    severe weather warning out for a big chunk of Central and NE Vic issued approx 4pm..cumulative upper:love: totals expected to reach 100mm for alps by Saturday morning when this event concludes...

    snow road and Ovens Valley Highway could be interesting if this event plays out in full..we may need Highway Access Thread soon....NE is totally saturated Ovens,King &Kiewa have been close to minor flood levels for last month.....///
