    Mount Ginini has picked up 4mm in the last hour and in the negs.
    Lots of light stuff stacking up against the Main Range on the CF radar.

    Sunny morning at Perisher, high and dramatic clouds from mid morning, then light snow from mid afternoon and the temperature seemed cooler. The only rain I encountered was at Bullock's Flat on the return trip. (Raining steadily in Canberra at 6pm, notfirsthand but from one currently there)

    It appears that's all she wrote for NSW resorts with the low moving offshore and switching with the Southerly flow.
    Few showers passing through South-Central Vic.

    Mount Ginini looks to have maybe got 5-10cm whilst the NSW resorts not even a cm.
    Vic resorts looking very cold. -5/-6c currently.

    Charlotte pass & perisher 0cm reported.
    Buller 2cm, Hotham and falls 1cm a piece, reported.

    The Brindabellas are looking very snow capped this morning, once you get above the Canberra fog level to see them..

    I won't bother posting my own thoughts, pls see above.

    Meanwhile, on the peninsula...
    Heavy showers.
    It's a BawBaw kind of little trough.
    Get a good 10 to 15cm today I reckon.

    Looks like EC got this about right in the last few runs.
    Kind of surprised NSW got nothing, I was expecting a few cm.

    Spot on, agreed. Brindies look to have got their fill. I suspect maybe a bit of shadowing from them last night.

    BBaw's should continue throughout the day. Albeit light and steady IMO.

    ~ -30C at 500hpa, no wonder there's been hail and thunder in those showers.

    Nada in Perisher despite them kicking us off the hill early because 'a storm is coming'. Ridiculous

    I observed this at Jindabyne this morning

    [​IMG]

    Then sunshine at Perisher, with cold temps. Had graupel followed by a half hour of heavy snow around 1pm at Blue Cow, and just returned to Jindy to this. I'd like to say it's snow, but it was actually just heavy hail, now sleet, and very cold out.
