Come on baby indeed....
Snow on cedarwood cam
Sounds more like Perisher punter behavior
Stay on topic.
looks to be warming slightly now in NSW. Still snow where it counts for now...
I observe i might have missed something.... what's been cancelled?
And on topic - heavy steady rain in canberra so will have to pack the car at 5.30am
Yep, sleeting in Thredbo village now.
Light rain at Buller.
Temp appears to be dropping but has a couple of deg to go. I don't have high hopes for tomorrow.
Think he means the SSA children's races. Which Thredbo cancelled and then Perisher took them up. Inter schools is still on.
Temps are rising at Perisher, looks like rain now..
And to think I was at Buller last weekend and Friday was some of the best skiing I have had for years
Sunday and Monday were great too.
It was the SSA Children's series, a bit of a step up from inter schools There are requirements around vertical drop on courses etc unlike inter schools, and Thredbo just don't have the snow down low to run them (with the required vertical for e.g.: Rossi doesn't cut it) or the fortitude to run them up at the top of the mountain in decent snow, so they cancelled. To be honest, given some of the courses and snow quality Thredbo have dished up at inter schools and club races over the last couple of years, its probably a blessing that its been MOVED to Perisher.
It's been a bit of surprise to get something so favourable for Friday. Give it a 6-8 hours and I reckon it'll be on the revert.
Obs Perisher: drip drip drip drip. The torch beam out the window shows moist
Thredbo top still puking but.
Its really about the cold air injection saturday that will make some good riding.
This wet snow today is about repairing the damage first, which should freeze up saturday.
looks like it's pissing down now. hopefully some colder air in a couple of hours
I think we had a win with snow down to 1400m for a few hours but looks to have retreated back up to 1800m plus for now.
Lets see if it can drop back down in the morning.
thredbo village ...we were teased with snow earlier tonight but now its pure rain.
I keep looking at the sat loop and can't work out where the cold air came from to cause it to snow, considering it was a moist NW feed.
It also 'appears' like the rain won't for very long as the cloud seems to be passing quickly.
Some very interesting cold from the system in the Bight, but looks like it won't reach the Alps
very unpredictable for Friday. But alas we'll take that over the 25-35mm that was expected.
Still zero up top
Wait till the daylight breaks.
Where in gods hands now
the light will let us know
shes goin back down
Perisher obs: still raining
I observe I'm going back to bed after observing the weather obs.
Perisher obs: sleety mush
And snowing again.
So 50mm in the guage at perisher AWS at this stage. Obviously a mix of rain and snow at the base at 1700m. However, based on the temps and observations yesterday afternoon I would expect that would have fallen as heavy snow up high 1900m + (and main range). It will be interesting to have a look up high later this morning.
Hotham HV cam suggests snow to bottom load
Rain coming down steadily in Thredbo. ☹️
looks like snow level currently sitting around 1700 m. Stay high my friend.
looking a little promising on cedar wood this morning?? I'm suggesting it must be very wet snot like though as temps didn't get any lower than 10 deg where I live (400m) usually needs to be no higher than 3-4 deg for good effects up top.
Perisher cams look much better than 24 hrs ago.
Despite what the quality may be , what a blessing.
This is a big get out of jail free card!
All about the centre of the low over the Alps and the pressure imo.
Two car accident with ambulances two km back from ski tube.
Not as good as it looked when we got here 13 hours ago
Yep . Temps where always looking suspect. Like you say was the lower pressure and position of the low that swung it our way.
The snow gods were on point last night. Very good outcome for a Tropical Pineapple Train.
Still gotta be net gain tho D-eye ?
Doubt it around the village level. There appears to be less than when we arrived while it was snowing
I observe very windy horizontal misty rain and minor flooding on the road between Goulburn and Lake George at the moment.
Miserable for driving
Piss weak front with the cold air approaching Adelaide. 5cm in ~12-14hours
We'll take it !
Was someone spun into the cliff just down from Tyrolean headed into town this morning too. Good lesson in manoeuvring around police and crashed car for my L plater.
Hotham scored 14cm!
The hook of a little low is showing up in the front so it may deepen and surprise
Southern edge, just about to hit the West Coast of Vic.
Might be worth tracking
Black Sallees FB
Pressure just cracked 1000hpa at Umina up from 995hpa overnight. Still very windy.
