    I observe it's damn windy here in Brisbane with wind gusts up to 80km/h reported at the airport and an App temp of 3.4c .

    Clear and sunny though, good day for solar panels.

    Don't worry Kylep. A day on front valley is not as wasted as a day in the office in front of the computer.

    Southerlies causing havoc to lift systems set up for westerlies?

    Also ruins a snowpack
    I remember a couple of years back we had a low level snow system followed by some crazy south winds.
    Was quite similar to this
    Most spots were un rideable
    They had this weird drifting like you can see in Rock garden

    Traffic heading out of Sydney at 2pm was busy already. Not too bad past Crumbletown though. Lots of cops.

    Cold, clear, and breezy at Sutton Forest. No sign of snow on hills in the highlands, but we'll see what lurks further south.

    Been coldies passing up the valley all day. Looking towards Healesville it's bloody dark now. Wouldn't be surprised if LM picked up some sneaky cm's today.

    Here's a shot I took earlier:

    Was a coach stuck on the way up and blocked about 100 cars, and then about an hour or two later it got stuck on the way down! Doh!! Still windy here but hopefully abating.
