    Lake Eucumbene snow cover still holding up on Tuesday morning (snow started Thursday night remember). Most persistent snow cover I've seen here but I'm sure not unprecedented.
    Clocked minus 11c on car thermometer at Kiandra on the way in to Selwyn on Mon 11th.

    From the sky this morning, just something quite else. Snow sticking around in the central table lands for over a day is not common! 2nd pic included so you can compare!

    Had the amazing experience of flying over the CT's from Sydney to Adelaide late yesterday. Wow, never seen this in my life, and 2/3 days after the event?

    Finally cleared properly at Buller today. Before and after shots of the last storm action finally possible. Got to say that the vegetation in some areas is starting to show through already. I guess a lot of the snow was settling on a zero base which doesn't help.

    Been raining heavily here at Island Bend for an hour or so. A few sneaky flakes earlier but when it was way too warm to stick. Temp 1.8 so very surprised to see Perisher still above zero (normally 3 degrees diff) so it would normally be snow up there. Last blast just now had some solid in the wintery mix, so could be a pleasant surprise tomoz.

    Bit of graupel at Mt Selwyn around 11am today but then nada, apart from some grey clouds to the south and west. Passing showers now at Lake Eucumbene, but seems too warm for anything exciting.

    Still snowing in PV, quite heavily at times. A bit wet and is melting on the windows but the cat tracks outside are filling in nicely.

    Never mind the kitchen, it’s reflecting off the outside of the double glazed..

    looks to be a tad warm at the Valley. but should be okay above 1800m. maybe some cold air to the south yet to come - and some more moisture hanging around.

    Wet road from Sawpit. Some snow accumulation at Dainers (1650ish) but not much. Bit of slush on the road from Prussian Creek.

    Maybe 3 cms snow at village level. Very wet!!
