    Small area of nasty looking winds tucked in behind the low.
    40-45 knot winds at best.

    Has been good distraction this april anom from every thing else going on atm. CMC thinking a nice injection of unstable moist humid air is part of the package. Bought on by the very cold air moving over a warmer ocean surface causing the instability seen in the sat pics speckle cloud. Sensible heat and latent heat thermodynamics.



    Totals don't matter @ this point.

    No snow on the Mt Hotham and Fall Creek webcams. Can't even see Mt Bogong, it's in the clouds. It's meant to get a lot colder though. My fire's been going all night.

    8.4mm/hr and a 1.2ºC temp drop, at Buller. Down to +1.8ºC now.
    You'd think this'd be hail/sago at this point.

    Certainly looks 'solid' like hail on the village cam.

    Cold change arrived—now 6.3° C from 10.2° C at dawn (likely the max for today). Heavy, low cloud and light rain with a fairly strong westerly.

    Yeah, EC has those 850mb temps dropping later tonight, but the upper levels (sub -20ºC) are moving through central Vic now.

    I think we'll see the FL stick around 1800m all day (hence the temp rise after that last heavy shower), before 850's cooperate later this arvo.
    But uppers should support some occ resort snow.

    Yeah I think the precip will probably be a mix in the upper resort levels, until those more solid surface temps.
