    They can measure wherever they like. Won't change the fact that no where is near 2000m

    Or the latitude dropping snow level 50-100 metres.
    But yes. NSW definately has the biggest penis.
    60 across the board.

    I know its a long shot to get an energy company in Vic to do such a thing but I'd happily contribute $5 a month on my bills to get such a reading and remove Spencer Creek from Vic readings . Can only dream

    Does anyone seriously think Vic majors get more on average?

    06Z GFS & EC's 00Z run has the wandering cold pool moving NE through Vic and into NSW. Which puts southern and central tablelands NSW in the firing line for the potential of snow Monday AM, IMO.
    In fact, I am gonna go out on a limb and say elevated suburbs of Canberra may even have a chance by Monday midday.

    Snow down as low as 800m Monday for these areas, I reckon.

    What do you mean? There is already a good snow record for Victoria, similar to Spencer's Creek. It is at the Rocky Valley Dam, near Falls, done by AGL Hydro. But it obviously gets less snow than Spencer's Creek.

    Edit: Contacting somebody who knows where to find it.

    EC looks to have adjusted the timings, just displaying it as a little later than previous runs. Largely still the same totals IMO.

    I observe this NSW/VIC cock measuring crap is ugly in the extreme and needs its own thread for the protagonists to really bare all and get at it. In the scheme of things it doesn't really matter , its nothing compared to the Swans kicking the Cats asses last night at the Catery.LOLLOLLOLLOL
    I also observe stuff all rain for us poor farmers so far , 14mm since Thursday.
    However this is a prediction thread I have just observed so..............whatever has fallen wherever you are so far ..............add 5- 10cm till midnight today then add 50 -80cm for sunday/Monday with the likelihood NSW will get close to the 80cm , Falls/Hotham around 65cm and Buller to get closer to 50cm. All happy now.

    Yes, for today. On the bright side it's due to swing more out of the North by tonight for Buller. Expect snow from early tomorrow AM.
    So it's colder and from the North tomorrow so I'd expect things to be 'better' by early tomorrow AM.

    Let's not forget we have had a net gain across all the majors, including Buller - despite this not being a favorably good system for Buller, come Monday PM there's still going to be anywhere from 30-50cm of new snow for Buller IMO.

    It is gently, but not enough for us to wear the full-brunt of Thursday's system - it a SE slider. That said there's still 5-10cm in it on Thursday, I reckon.

    Need the scales in there, but that looks like some 60-80mm blob on the main range for tomorrow 1000hrs to Monday 1000hrs.

    Yep, sure is, which is why EC/GFS have things going well into Monday now.
    Check out the polar jet. 'aint nothing coming between it and the cold air... Solid stall aloft, solid incursion.

    IMO not much more than 10cm. You're in rain shadow for this whole event.

    I predict, that there will be very little skiing tomorrow, as the gales will impose safety issues for operators.. particularly for Thredbo..

    What are the best sites to watch the front/precip develop?
