    Quite warm in Jindy today. Feels like spring. Hopefully this week is followed by next week as currently forecast.

    Warm and raining in NW tassie. Probably not worth having the fire going other than to dry things in front of.

    NW was blowing hard coming to work this morning. Fiercely down here in Brighton.
    Mild temps and strong winds have one decent feature - getting washing dry on the line. And that's about it.
    As nice as the sun was yesterday, running into the teeth of the strong NW was a bitch.

    Warm and very windy here in Emerald. Clouds are just starting to come over. I am at Perisher wed and Thurs, hoping the forecast precipitation holds off a bit.

    Where is the airport in relation to the mountains? Foehn winds are basically the opposite of Adiabatic cooling - air temp warms as the winds blow over the top of mountains and falls down the other side.

    Airport is heading down towards Omeo, so would make perfect sense.
    Strong NW blowing up over the mountains, air warming as it heads down the other side of the mountains

    Having the hair dryer and the shower going at the same time is not good.

    The Main Range looks loaded in the right places.

    "Tour out from Charlotte Pass to Northcote today (15th JULY). Some icerinks out there, but also a lot of soft windblown. Good cover. Snowy River has plenty of snowbridges. Wind was moderate SW in the morning, but dropped to nothing by the afternoon." Although I would expect corn snow for much of this week, I presume.

    Perisher has had 21.4mm since 3pm yesterday. Time to turn the hair-dryer off and get out of the shower.

    Bottom half of Thredbo looking brown and patchy again on cams. Perisher looking similarly miserable. Back to where we were last Monday before the blizzard...

    Bizarre-oh weather fluctuations. A rise then a plummet of 8 degrees in Adelaide to come

    Forecasted to hit 21 on Thursday

    13 on Saturday

    I have Jane's preseason prediction ringing in my ears of several huge dumps with potentially warm moisture in between!!

    Yesterday was ridiculously warm for mid July, today the same.

    Cooma hit 20 yesterday, didn't quite catch the record it broke but something along the lines of warmest July day in 40 years on ABC weather?

    It is just OK. Zalis & Towers were good earlier but heavy wet snow is quickly carved. Front Valley is now the best option!!
    Incredible loss on slopes away from snow making areas. Creeks are racing along, lots of brush, rocks & dirt around; with sink holes appearing randomly across all resorts. All runs still skiable on wet heavy snow (no surprises there). Eyre has a significant area of gravel, dirt & rocks where yesterday wind blown & groomers were a treat. There are still of alternative heavy tracks but indicative of melt & loss since yesterday. If heavy rain falls with no freeze between now & Friday evening significant losses will occur & runs will close. If rain is followed by a good dump of 40+ all will be epic again.
