45 cm natural cover, mmmm. Starting from scratch again I think
To be fair, that never gets much cover there. It's north facing and wind exposed.
Spencers measured at 95cm. I must admit I was expecting less. As mctavish said there was a lot of loss in the last 24 hours at perisher. Bare patches everywhere with rocks, grass, dirt and heath showing through
This is retardedly warm weather for July. What the F is going on.
Sydney going for a top of 25 on Friday!!!
Terrible news given it's mid July, but in reality that's the Aussie ski season for you.......
TBH last season even though it was an El Nino year seems to have been consistently better to date IMO......still a long way to go but gee it's been up and down so far in terms of temps and overall weather......
Just had a look at the latest BOM forecasts - more rain tomorrow but thankfully only predicted to be light.
Friday looks interesting......currently they are calling for Snow above 1400m and for Perisher 15-50mm possible......
This the obs thread. Use predictions thread please.
Pissing down rain in Dubbo atm. Everything satrated. Could be some flooding out of this lot.
NSW looks to be getting it's fair share. Thankfully, we have an active jetstream south of the border palming the bulk of it to the Tasman.
Steady rain at Dargan now
Last week it was hello 2014, last year we were just getting our first snowfall now, it was manmade all the way through school horror days, HN and Merritts only at Thredbo. So this season has been better IMO, if less consistent.
Spring day in Canberra today. I note Cooma has had its warmest July day in quite some time, maybe second warmest recorded?
Sometimes you've gotta slay some dragons to get to the princess, and as I observe a very WET morning here in Sydney this morning, the alps are doing a good job at fending off this dragon to the north right now.
We're quite lucky here IMO with the majority of this moisture heading in an ESE direction.
10mm rain in the gauge so far at my house in Sydney (at 7am) and raining at 2mm/hour. Predictions for today are in the 20-40mm range.
Also it only got down to 16C overnight from a high yesterday of just under 24C. Further anecdotal observation - not specific to this period - is that my lawn needs mowing again. Typically I never need to do it during ski season due to frosts and lack of rain; not so this year and the current warmth and rain is only going to kick it along more.
Looks like a solid 20mm+ across the upper Macquarie catchment. I think Lake Burrendong will go close to filling out of this. Was as low as 10% a couple of months back. We've had 40mm overnight in Dubbo.
30mm overnight, warm and muggy in the upper Blue mountains NSW.
Pineapple express type system IMO
Dry in jindabyne this morning, phew!
Up to 50mm here now. Same in Mudgee. 30mm+ around Orange and Bathurst. She'll be comin down the mountain now.
