It would help if they gave us the location and info for those mini stations.
Hey Rossi, unfortunately I think they are just large raindrops. They appear a bit white because the slow shutter speed use in low light causes blurring of the droplets. But I'd be happy to be wrong of course.
Now why the heck would they go n do that?
So idjits can vandalise them?
hmm looks nice and white, but looks like the ground is soaked
Yeah, I am assuming they have them, but I can't imagine any vaguely modern snowmaking system not having a network of stations.
Perisher Blue do provide weather data from all around the resort which is nice (when they work ) :
0.2c at 10pm at 1970m there...
No! so people like us can monitor round the clock weather information for hotham.
One is definately at Road Runner.
Probably another up at the Summit,
and another towards Swindlers Valley (near Sundowner maybe).
I've been watching this cam for a coupla seasons now before I go up there. This is either torrential drops of rain, sleet or wet snow.
You don't see rain so good and it generally spatters the lense with water.
I think it one of the last two.
Looks like white, wet, snow to me. R*in doesn't show up so white on the cam, and is usually not so easy to see. Still a little way from settling though it seems...
I think that is slow shutter speed rather than snow

found my fletch cam hog...
Deffinately snowing on Hotham. Intermitantly heavy, from what I've been told.
Fletcher's cam was showing streaks of rain 15 minutes ago POW...
Wet snow it is then, like I said very happy to be wrong. Whats the height of the carpark there?
YAY! finally it has hit the negs!
Mt Hotham in the negatives.
Falls Creek 0.1
It's slurpee time.
Just so everyone knows. It can snow above Zero Degrees.
yea but doesnt it sound so much better when it is n the negs?
Which carpark? the small one next to the MHRMB?? Thats well above 1700m!
When I was a kid in the north of England, we'd have a minus 6 day and Granny (rest her soul) would say 'its too cold to snow'.
Sure as ****, when it hit about 3 it would snow.
Being negative makes me positive
Someone is wrong by a fair bit...
I would say the big one around 1700m with the one at blu ribbon 1650m.
Sorry Falls Carpark is about 1500m
Yeah. Central defineately >1700m
I think he was refering to the location of the falls creek carpark cam...
Yeah, so it was snowing at 1500m at Falls Creek.
imagine if it had been 2C colder the whole time, this would have been magic.
i dont think its snowing at falls. cam shows a lot of grainy stuff towards the top right light, that would be rain.
Thinking about canning my Aug 5th family ski trip to PB and heading across the Tasman. I'll be losing my deposits but this is looking really ****. Are there any potential fronts between now and then that I should consider before making a drastic decision?
There still plenty of moisture out there, and the temps are coming down.
Its definately a mix of precipitation, but you generally get that graininess from this cam especially when its humid or foggy.
Hmm East Sale radar is back online.
How more more precip is left would Sandy/Djon or Verm say ?
I dont think much more but the BOM would know better than me
"Rain areas with heavy falls should continue in Gippsland for most of Monday.
Showers and drizzle will continue elsewhere, especially over southern and
I am concerned for Buller. 2.2 with SSE winds currently...
Does'nt look like dropping below freezing tonight.
oh no! hotham temp crept back up to 0.2!!!
POW: Yeh buller hasn't changed much Looking at the cam.
Bourke Street cam while it was lit at 9pm was looking very very wet/watery. I expect most of the sides of Bourke St to be showing dirt by morning !
As a nice finishing point before Sandy closes this 10 page thread, as I and a few others have been saying for a while, the rest of July looks like no snow falling, except for maybe 5cms or so in about a week !
Poor Mt Baw Baw, temp now up to 4.4 and 6.0mm of rain so far! What little snow they had left will be gone by morning me thinks!
