Someone has left their hairdryer on, somewhere to the NW of Hotham!
Rain band has hit Macedon, lets see if the force field works today.

Brutal wind at Hotham, a little bit of clear precip starting to fall. Was planning on testing my new AT setup out to Loch and surrounds but almost got blown over. Tomorrow's the day
Good to see temps dropping across NSW before the moisture! Maybe all snow..
Top of mount P was crunching up ~4pm this arvo. Temps below 0 (-.6) on lodge thermo at North Perisher. Still some clear spots in the sky as the sun sets. No moisture observed yet.

I'm at Mushroom Rocks near BawBaw at the moment. Wind is only mild here, but expect it to pick up. Not overly cold but at least we have an awesome campsite to bunker down in.
Couple of spits in Brighton. Mild. Wind is strong.
Hrrm, seems odd to me. Perisher AWS was 3.6C at that time. That's 4 degrees difference between the Valley AWS and your lodge. I am guess your lodge sits in a nice little frost hollow.
Nah Mt-P obs here have been -0.1 since 5:30
That's nearly 200m vertical difference between the valley (where lodges are) though.
Oh missed that bit haha, was more referring to crunchy up top
Love the late arvo crunch - reminds me of spring.
