    Obs this morning....

    A few cms at Moonbah and a dusting at Lake Level.

    Pretty much snow on the road from Thredbo River to PV.

    Now to the snow! At least 15 cms at village level. IMO it is better quality than yesterday. Feels light at the village.

    Carpark from the bridge....well you can’t see it now.



    Creek mostly covered.



    Front Valley has dry sitting on the groomer. And plenty of it!



    Light winds at the moment with decent vis down low. Some light snow falling.

    Lots of people already.

    Mt P here I come.......very early...

    It was 1°C and a wintery mix this morning at 5am when we left the Dandenongs. Made the beginning of the drive interesting!

    Storm Totals
    Charlottes Pass 140cm
    Thredbo 137cm
    Perisher 115cm
    Falls Creek 102cm
    Hotham 89cm

    Thats well over 4ft at both Charlottes and Thredbo, 3ft at Perisher and Falls, and not quite 3ft at Hotham since Thursday. I think some of the models suggesting a late downgrade below 3ft might have been looking specifically at Hotham

    Great snow cover at Baw Baw now too, but I think the roads are still closed. The resort can’t take a trick.

    Snow has settled in relatively thick sections up top of dandenongs (eg olinda). Still snowing as of a few minutes ago.

    Reports of flurries settling momentarily below 400m at places like Kallista.

    Baw Baw's website reports 85cm now (almost as much as Hotham from this storm). Doesn't help though that the road has been closed since Friday night.

    You'd have to ask @Dave Clark about that. Their snow report is just a mess of random facts about big snowflakes and about how the lifties are hitting the gym to look music festival ready? It most certainly does not include a storm total, although it does mention 12cm overnight all below -7.

    Poor Baw Baw - plenty of snow but nobody can get up there, and even if you are already on mountain - all the runs are open but no lifts.......

    Mt Macedon looking just stunning.

    Reports of snow from Malmsbury, Clonbinane, Kyneton and Romsey.
    I wonder how close it got to Sunbury.

    Fun fact time; BOM's Sydney Aerological ballon this morning (7am) showing FL above Sydney @ ~1000m, with an upper atmosphere temp of -30C. Which would technically see wintery mix snow at times as low as 600m, just a lazy 300m taller than the Centrepoint tower. IF we had any hint of moisture in the basin that is...
    It's even colder now @ 10am.

    Plenty of snow on the hills behind Canberra. Still lots of low cloud blanketing the view.

    Not seeing anything on social media from my area (sunbury). Settling in riddell, gisborne etc. I'd hesitate a guess that it was falling but not settling on some of the hills last night.
    Edit: also just saw Hanging Rock covered
