    This system is playing out exactly as expected.
    PSR. Snow forecasting.
    Please....

    I've been saying the last day of this is a sw/Buller system for days. :) Should do well after doing slightly worse to start.

    Very warm here in Jindy at 5.4 degrees with scattered showers with large raindrops. Too warm! Earlier wind gusts have dropped right off.

    The luxury of modern technology. To sit 1000km away and watch it snow live in Thredbo.

    1970's you got 1 synoptic map per day.
    1980's you got 1 synoptic map and 1 satellite map per day. Pictures - you had to wait till somebody came back from the snow to see a picture.

    Funny that they all complain about who does the dump alerts. And these dump alerts are issued after the dump starts....

    No, took a step back and looks nice for NSW for the next 36 hrs, with that NW hook. Then it's all Victorian, once it goes southerly.

    Reminds me of a Brett Whitley nudie

    Everybody enjoy - looks like a lot of fun over the next 36 hours.

    This will fill in lots of areas and build some great base.

    There's a serial offender and rates the Power ade bottle as legit.
    Its the wind patterns.
    Shows it circulating from the cold South back around from the NW.
    As the Low approaches it will swing to the West then South.
    click.

    Just a little note for those fussing over temps. Just remember that without temp variance available moisture does stuff all.

    It's hit Northcote. Windy gusts and pelting rain, not icey but feels cold enough.

    Low is SW of Cape Otway. So quite a Northerly Flow at the moment. All good.
