Some might think of this period as a curtain-raiser, interim period but whilst Sydney is in lockdown and Vic is free what better time than now to cloud watch ahead of next weeks action.

A few showers sitting on the border Alps at the moment. Doesn't look like much moisture South of the ACT though.

The low moved off Sydney quicker than originally anticipated...dry in south western Sydney this morning.
The rotation does look like the tail will come around to the mountains either IMO.

Mizzel most of the day at the cow.

As we got back to the car at 1pm it was more like drizzel.

Fingers crossed it cools down and turns to snow.

Light drizzle at island bend atm :/. Should’ve reapplied that waterproofing to the tent.

Hopefully doesn’t last long.

I observe (sorry no observation thread yet) that I have been sitting in the same spot in Thredbo for the past three years season starting snow falls….

Last year

Based on the Bom forecast my sitting in Thredbo will bring a 50cm plus dump of snow.

Happy to accept thankyou donations

Either the snow stake is drunk or its gusting strongly. Also looks like a wintery mix kicked off in the last 2 hours with the temps going positive just now.

Gusts right up there with the best here at Island Bend. Too warm for snow right now but incoming radar blob might start the party?

Looks pretty woolly on the (very low frame rate) live video feed of my cam, it’s not what I’d call a sheltered location but it’s not exposed either.

Yeah, that's pretty blowy considering your cam is in the lee of the Northerly flow.

High Noon cam pretty as a picture. Merritts covered in snow (albeit a tad wet looking), even Friday Flat looks kinda chunky. Probably the false illusion of a full snow event today/tomorrow before the 'wintry mix' creeps in during the day.

Yeah, today you can expect those heavier snow showers touching 1600m (maybe even 1500m at times), drizzly wintery mix/graupel below 1700m in those lighter showers.
That'll work from NSW main range resorts perspective. Still lead to accumulation of some kind above 1600 albeit a tad soggy but that's all good when you know a good freeze is coming on the back end.
