    Perisher and Thredbo both above 0. Meanwhile in Canberra it has just dropped to -5.1C (perhaps a reaction to the election?)

    Beautiful morning here in Perisher. No wind at the bottom of the hill and no clouds.

    As I posted in the Perisher thread was -4C in Jindy, rose to above zero on the way up but -7C in the Smiggins car park according to the car. PB app was reporting +2C at the top of Mount P.

    Just back in from hitting the slopes at Hotham. Mizzle most of the day with the drops getting bigger and heavier as we speak. Temp of 0° according to the clock at Hotham Central. Hopefully the temp drops or the moisture disappears. Snow was in great condition though a little soft.

    I observe a very slow moving system at the moment. Looks like it has stalled near Adelaide.

    cold at Buller - wind chill this morning was high. Foggy most of the day. At the moment temps would not be an issue if we happen to get some moisture.

    Adelaide sitting at 7.1 and reached a top of 11 with precipitation. Currently only 2.4 at Mt Lofty @685m. Looks plenty cold enough with precipitation for the start of this system. Low does look to have stalled over Adelaide and looking forward to it pushing east over the next 24 hours.
    Neg 1.5 in Perisher and dropping. An interesting 48 hours coming up.

    The weather station for Mount Lofty is only at 625m and the top is higher about 710m so may be slightly colder with more chance of snow than what the weather station suggests.
    Although having said that, one of the local weather chasers said it was only a rain band so less chance.

    Irymple South, near Mildura Vic, and dead set light tiny icy snow falling here!!!. I'm not Insane, it not rain, just enough to settle on your hand, and glistening when landing, slow falling tiny flakes that are in random light wind effected patterns for last 2-3min.
    Bloody cold in the last 10min too!

    Coldest air going to be a long way north by the time this system reaches the important parts.
    Colder in Adelaide than mt gambier which is unusual.

    Right now the Low is centred midway between Adelaide and Mt Gambier. Warm Nor-Easterly for Mount Gambier, cold southerly for ADL right at the minute. Won't be like that for long.

    Here is a pic of a rain band passing over the Murray on the way to Adelaide this arvo. I observe it started raining properly once we got to the mt lofty ranges and was miserable in Adelaide when I went out for dinner.

    it snowed on and off yesterday on benlomond but very wet snow above 1350 - 1400m hopefully the snow quality improved last night as the temp and snow level dropped. its colder this morning - when it (the low ) forms proper and the southerly / south easterly blows up it should be cold enough for good snow - i do worry that its to far north - could be good , could be bad -
