    Maragle, NSW; 948 m AMSL; 35° 51’ 30.06” S
    Observed sleet showers around 3 AM (yep, I stayed-up all night watching this!), with hardly a trace of the wet stuff—i.e. scarcely even 0.2 cm on measure @ 1,265 m. I don't reckon the snow level even dropped below the 1,200 m mark, either. Got much more snow (and proper snow) in December 2019 than I did now...but that probably says more about that event than this one.

    However, I will not call this a fizzer in the slightest, because I have at least received a healthy precipitation reading amounting to 21.7 mm since yesterday; I'm happy with that!

    Morning all base on the avic cams I won’t call this a fizzier down south.

    I can’t see BBaw cams well enough yet, but it almost looks like a careful toboggan is possible at Buller. :cool: :skier:

    At hotham 2_3cm wet snow before 8pm. Temp then dropped and dried things out and was blowing a little dry snow over the top. Seemed to have turned pretty damp overnight though, pretty slick underfoot now, with light with freezing r@!# falling.
