    Temp peaked at about 10.3C at 1pm here in Mildura, it's dropped down to 6.9C, steady drizzle and f-cold, not that any weather up here at the moment influences the alps :p

    I observe the fat flakes have stopped falling in the valley, and that board would make for some great long exposure photography on a night run.

    As recommended earlier this week, a simple, "More images from Stanley, Vic, today, elev 780m" - or similar wording - would save people having to ask, adding to wasted space on the website server. Not everyone reads every single post.

    I observe much more rooftop accumulation at PV than this time yesterday. I'd say the 7cm noted above is about right.

    Viz is very low atm, not currently snowing.

    Strange old morning in Melb.
    Feels quite mild out, had a heavy shower on the way to work, not on the bike today thankfully.
    Nice full rainbow over the bay also. But again its quite mild and hard tot believe the snow level is so low in the ranges

    A fair bit of warm air advection from the South East this morning in Victoria. Feels balmy.

    The good news is that another cold pool is lurking just to our South and this afternoon and tomorrow will be colder.
