    A light nor easter, a few clouds and 18 degrees here in Forster. No snow as yet. The forecast is for 24 degrees tomorrow so snow is also unlikely then too. What a pity.

    Why is there little or no breeze here in Frankston? Had a shower or 2, but not much else all day.

    Windy at Moonbah as well but nowhere near what’s in store.

    Meantime the temp has dropped going by the BOM - and the snow has just arrived....

    I’m definitely heading up the hill!

    Watching perisher snowstake is somewhat mesmerising. Showing probably around 4cm accumulation in 45minutes. The little snowdrift in front of the measurements makes it a little difficult to be precise
