That first image is a beautiful example of Cumulus Mediocris with Cumulus Congestus in the distance (bottom-left of second frame). That cloud base is straight as a ruler too.
Classic high country sett-up where convection clocks off like a wharfie, right on sunset.

Like all frontal systems at this time of year, Tas will see the bulk of the moisture with falls as high as 10-15mm tomorrow. It won't be leaving much more than 3-5mm on the mainland IMO. Good to see some polar air through the SE though.

8 of us took a ride on chair at CP this morning. Had thought coffee at Stilwell, a short walk then lunch back at Eyre Cafe. Australia Day and all that.....strong winds, good wind chill and lo and behold....rain on the chair as descending. Top station liftie was checking wind strength - was 45-50 kms. Rain so far has pretty much stayed on the main range and resorts.

EC 00z tips it's hat to (x2*) mid-summer polar outbreak first week of Feb.
According to the 00z run; she's highly dependent on upper level low influence (rather than MSLP synoptic support) for the 5th Feb system so the fat bird hasn't sung by any means.

GPS is tracking this as well. I was not expecting next snow cold event until late Feb. if sooner then I'll take this as a good omen.
