    That my friends is a freight train of the coldest, nastiest, Goodthing that Mother Nature has to offer.

    And it's barreling right at our alpine regions.

    There is southerly moisture feed. There is wrapping speckle.

    Hold onto your hats folks. :woohoo:

    A little baby hint of NW cloud band feed? I mean seriously, that would be the icing on the cake not that it matters too much, but it would be incredible if this juggernaut was even SLIGHTLY enhanced with an Indian Ocean feed that aided convection. IMO

    I observe there must be a change brewing, the predictions thread has gone all MEGA opinionated! And antsy! Must be a lot at stake.......reputations, season starter, powder days. High stakes!

    IMO adds to the anticipation on the hill. Wind is a sign of change, anger. Not always, but often. Fark this is going to be so fricken awesome watching, listening, shredding and posting our way through this event. Amped!!!!!!!!! :woohoo:

    I observe from radar that the first bit of precipitation has already hit Buller, and will no doubt be white and fluffy precipitation.

    Heavy damp snow to start will be excellent for the base. :)

    Such a pity we don't already have one. :(

    Large in coming blob from the NW for NSW resorts. Temps dropping looks ok for snow above 1600m initially then dropping. We may squeeze 15cm out of this.

    Light rain from NW ( 5mm ) , light breeze same direction , temp 1c when I left Walbundrie ( 50km north of Albury) at 4am.
    As I went past Selwyn turnoff on Snowy highway there was a few flecks of snow falling , not much but it is only around 1400m. Stopped at Adaminaby for fuel , temp -1 and very light rain. Onward to Perisher now.

    It's 3 degrees in the village - it probably is rain. Snow will lower later.

    Back in MEL ( with annual trips to the 604 )
    mrs LTB reports about 5cm on the deck at Buller which is consistent with their report. Was dumping earlier but has eased off now. Leaving Melb at midday for the weekend.
