    Nothing on Mt Bogong yet, mind you it's night time and I can't see it. No rain yet, no wind, I'm inside with the fire going.

    Hobart FL ~1900m @ 9am. No YMEL balloon as yet?
    -27ºC upper levels and deeply stacked moisture. Snow down to ~1500m, as of about an hour ago.

    Here's that trough band on the latest sat grab. Not sure if it's gonna swipe the Alps but Mallacoota/Gippsland should see it in 5-6 hours.

    Pow- that trough/band u have pointed out above, is that the coldest juiciest part of this front that will produce the best snow?
    I reckon baw baw could see a direct hit from that band? IMO
    Speaking of baw baw it’s dropped to -0.1c with precip around the area according to radar

    Yeah, although the coldest uppers for Eastern Vic are now into the arvo. We have decoupled atmos so should see marginal snow in the resorts throughout today.
    I honestly don't think that trough will reach even BB at this rate - clipper.

    Wind really starting to hum up here now! I suspect the strongest belt of winds will be at there peak with that trough that’s just hit king Island.

    We’re down near the Prom, and it’s off the dial feral. Hail, teaming rain, and gusting to 60kmh. Trees down everywhere.
    Fire is nice though

    Really is a Baw Baw system with the Southerly bias.
    Should see a further nice drop for you in 10-15 mins IMO.
