    Temps at Thredbo have been dropping last few hours.

    1.30pm top station was 0 degrees.

    Looks bloody wet otherwise.

    By lack of commentary in predictions thread I assume everyone else is over it.

    Flew out from Adelaide Airport midday today. The flight was delayed but for technical reasons not because of the weather. Take off was surprisingly smooth.

    Plenty of rain,wind and cold there today.

    Will do, short walk to granite flat, plenty of snow left in that bowl to lookers left so should still be enough on the southern side.

    Snowed for a while only sticking on the grass, then dry until now as pellets start to hit the roof again. Noticeably colder outside...

    Trentham up to 63mm in the last 2 days and more to come, no wonder the Coliban river and Campaspe are pumping. As far as I know all three lakes are full in the upper Coliban area, so Eppalock should start filling pretty quickly and if it does fill the lower Campaspe will see some decent flooding IMO

    That is a little further west than I went over the weekend, and it was very wet and the upper Coliban was very close to bursting it banks before the rain hit this week so far. From all reports they have copped more rain towards the Ballarat side of Wombat, so not surprised if they are in strife, Especially if Tullaroop is full.

    Ah the snobbery. At least the students that I taught in Sunbury knew the difference between past and passed.

    BOM have a minor flood warning for the Goulburn at Seymour. My mum has reliably informed me they've had 27mm in the gauge, and hail just now.

    Whiteheads Creek has closed one of the local roads as there's water over the road now, rendering it impassable. It's the same road and creek that claimed a life back in January after a cloud burst.

    Vic alps in line for a solid precip band in the next hour or so. Looks moderately heavy.
    Rotation on Himawari, around the Grampians looks tight.
