    Bottom of Heavenly doesn't appear to be raining (maybe a little snow in the trees?).

    Can confirm it's snowing quite well at Hotham. Just walked from Hotham Central to Davenport (currently enjoying a bevvie for my efforts there). Snow settling on cars and the road is now covered as well.

    I thought about 4-5 at the top of Centre Valley where I observed accumulation on the roof of T Bar huts from mid morning. 10 cm. No way!!

    On Mt P I would say they had even more than 10cm, temps were marginal so probably differing totals around the resort

    Maybe another 5cm overnight for Perisher going by AWS and South Perisher cam. Temps gently on the rise but only just in the negs at the moment.
    Winds still southerly for most resorts. Hanging in the at the moment IMO.

    Snowing quite large flakes at the top of Hotham. 8cm overnight but that measurement was taken at 5am. Also apparently there is a windchill factor of -15. I suspect today will just be a short session for me!

    Seems about right. Perisher and Threadblow would be recording that from what, 1700-1800m? The VIC resorts probably 100-200m lower elevation, which would make a serious difference in this system. Coupled with being further south and out of the cold pool, and on the other side of the ranges so getting less moisture.

    Straight to Aldo's and wait for Mt P to open as it will be best today (highest area in the resort) or turn around and head back to Jindy IMO
