    Ah Williamstown! I work at BAE Systems. When we were building the ships, the view of the city from the pier was a sensational

    Today at Buller was great. Some more snow would be great though.

    I observe too much cloud to see the aurora tonight, but I'm heading to Cape Patterson anyway for a look.

    Temp has dropped from a day high 4c at 3.07pm to -1.8c now at my high perch outside Tumba. Took all the immature lambs into the heated barns yesterday and they will probably stay there till later in the week. Mature animals finding shelter in lower valleys again.

    It's bloody cold at Buller right now, which is a good thing, are tomorrow's temps still looking marginal.

    Not much to report from here, cold, windy and foggy.

    Temps seem to be dropping with the front, eg mt William

    Methinks if we didn't have computer models, we'd be looking at the radar/satellite/obs and calling a 2 foot storm

    Based on the current obs, prefrontal should be minimal (if at all). Fingers crossed

    It's -4 or lower at all the majors... no daramtic spike recorded anywhere as the front has hit or even in its approach. This is only going one way.

    The warmer air is not associated with this first rain band. It hits the 'alps' in the early hours....

    (I still think it'll be fine at resort level though)

    Perisher rain gauge didn't record moisture last snow event and recorded moisture from 10 am yesterday when we had blue skies & no wind. There is something wrong!! This morning it states 3 mm, but Perisher isn't claiming any if it in the snow report.

    Yeah I was looking at that system on the charts the other day. Looks due to hit us in about 2 weeks if it can re-form and get it's shit together.

    Embedded trough action deeper into the heart of the low centre is approaching VIC southwest coast now, IMO the moisture lies in these troughs. It's coming...

    Loving the rotation we seeing on the Satellite west of Tassie just now.


    Relatively warm 'ish SST's will be helpfull with some , hopefully , nice n moist convection.
    Could see it starting last night , but was further West of course.

    Yeah snow was a little softer than the weekend on LBS and Wombat.

    Vis actually improved a bit but the wind just picked up.

    Now 21 degC. 1-2 degC warmer than GFS and OCF predicted. Today was always going to be marginal.
