Between 8:30am to about 2pm it goes above 0 according to meteye. AXSR does show some precip in these areas still but not enough to wash away the snow entirleyFor perisher ...the temps are below zero from Thursday at 1am until sunday lunch time
I don't think temps are a issue
2m Air temp (what you're looking at) should be ignored in terms looking at likelihood snow/rain/sleet.
Heavy wet snow and then a freeze next week should be ideal for base building. Guns should also fire for a few days so hopefully a good build up with 4 weeks to go.
BOM have lowered the snow level from 900 to 800m for NSW CTs on Friday.
Canberra heading for its coldest May maximum on Friday since 1990 .

The bureau says temperatures will plummet to between 2 and 8 degrees below the average for this time of year.
"It will come as quite a shock to people because we have had one of our warmest autumns on record so far," Mr How said.
"Canberra for example will reach a top of just 9 degrees (Celsius) on Friday and that will be the earliest they have had a sub-10 degrees maximum in early May since 1990."
yeah you'd be right - was NRL snow that day no?
Thredbo Upgrade for AXSR, that locks me in, im calling 80cm + of snow for the main range. I also predict that it wont melt until the end of the season.
