    I observed a very angry looking black sky driving back to Melb from Buller today. Hit Yarra Glen about 1.30pm to a couple of big lightening bolts and then absolutely torrential rain through Coldstream. Wouldn't be surprised if that particular cell dumped a bit of snow higher up around the YV. Was fast and furious!

    Yarrawonga radar looks a real treat for NSW resorts. Some nice heavy cells coming through Tocumwal.

    Radar progression showing it's heading due east. Perisher will get whacked

    And temps? Below 10C in Albury right now. Wangaratta is 5.7C. The big 3 Vic resorts are all hovering around -4C. Tasty

    Snowing most of the afternoon at Hotham. Ferocious winds made it very hard getting off the Heavenly Valley chair this afternoon. The fresh that fell last night was very soft, great to ski on, and made my progression to Black Cruiser quite easy today!

    Snow seems to have eased off a bit now but will update when it starts again.

    if it keeps on that trajectory expect quite a jump in the recorded depths at Deep Creek and Three Mile Dam next week. Selwyn's report tomorrow am will make for interesting reading.

    Cold though, sprinklers are running furiously.

    Hey Astro, i think you have been very close to the mark with these tables; however at these colder temps i'm thinking maybe 25 cm or so per 30mm??
