    Heavy rain in mildura and 10deg at the moment, tis nice to see something dropping from the sky. I find from past observations systems coming across when it rains and its below 14 deg its generally snow when it hits the alps

    I observe that there was some freezing rain in Perisher for about 5 minutes, now fog and intermittent drizzle.

    Not burning a lift ticket today chilling at brunellis while kids are in their prepaid jobbies.

    The low is spinning clockwise in the Bite, well below Adelaide. It's pulling in that moisture from the north. So things will stay damp for a while yet. But it's all as expected so far.

    [​IMG] One thing worth pointing out is the really warm water off Sydney. Like 20 degrees.

    This is how it looks with 4 degree morning chill.
