Looks like it’s socked in for a few hours :thumbs:....

Started with this bit of cloud shaped a bit like a shark yesterday.

Moonbah - 12 mm to date with zero wind. Paddocks (weeds and all) responding as it falls.

Perisher with 24mm till 9a.m. and about 14mm since. Looks like the mountain is getting a good flush.

Jindabyne was getting a decent amount when I was there 30 mins back.

Quite mild temps though so watching to see if that cool change makes it later this evening......

Weather from the “East” arrived 20 mins ago bringing light rain @1100 ASL. Can’t be far off from the resorts if it’s to make it that far in.

Cool day today here. Fireplace running.

Sleet and snow down to Wilson’s Valley. Not sticking.

Snow at Dainers Gap and sticking. A few cms.

About 7 cms at PV circa 1850 ASL where it’s showing minus 2. It’s super dense snow! Couple of pics taken at the base of Eyre.

Currently heavy fog / cloud with light wet snow.

I’d guess the Alpine has fared better but no vis.

Footnote: It snowed this day last year as well.

Definitely more up high. Can’t see out to the Alpine from the CP lookout but the boardwalk has about 10 cms. Would anticipate more has fallen and built up on any pre existing drifts that survived the rains. Reminds me of the snow that came from the East earlier this season. Sitting heavy on leaves and branches......

We had hail today in Berridale. Poor dog is terrified as some of the lightening was very close.

We have had lots of rain in the last week. I actually have some grass as well as lots of weeds but so wet I cannot mow it. Normally the weather thing at Cooma airport has more rain than we do but we have had a lot more then it says.
