    The Tasman's working some magic offshore. It's a shame it's taking on warm air.

    Yeah, it will be short lived. Probably all melted by the end of the day at this rate!

    These events are always great for the resort marketing teams, gets people thinking about planning their winter trips

    MEL T-Skew @9am this morning says FL ~1900m with a weak inversion above that.
    Only -15C @ 500mb. All over red rover for snow, but plenny of rain left in it IMO.

    Not much on the Melb radar but it's still very ordinary outside with light rain now.....total cloud cover but with a lighter density if that makes sense.Moderate winds.
    Barometer appears to be rising now.

    I personally don't know a single person who has ever managed to read their way through an entire golf article. The world needs less golf articles and more snow articles. I observe golf sucks year round.

    I observe I played golf this afternoon in a wind that felt like it had come from somewhere snowy after starting work early to write golf and snow articles. I observe I sucked very badly and lost 6 balls but still enjoyed myself. I also observe that most golf journalism does indeed suck although if you've never read Jason Day's letter to his 12 year old self, u probably should

    haha excuse me for managing to offend all and sundry. Inspiring stuff. Thanks for the share.

    I observe rain on South perisher cam tonight. Looks like a cold, bleak night ahead.

    Purely IMO, some good shots - but terrible, destructive post production. Looks like someone was up there there at a similar time (view from Halls Gap) and although drastically different framing it looks nothing like Nick's shots - except more realistic.

    aaaanyway. Big totals in rainfall over the last week...
