    We need an observations thread. I am not sure how you do the right tag etc now.

    Windy in Jindy. Cloud banking up on the range

    Breezy in Melbourne this morning. Clear skies and the sun is out.

    It is blowing hard up at Perisher. A lot on wind hold. Cover still great and this top up will help things along nicely.

    After two blue bird days at Buller, I wouldn't surprised to see icy conditions after melting and re-freezing overnight. Now that the storm's effect has started it's very foggy and windy.

    Past few days have been seriously cold in inland Vic - yesterday Ballarat didn't even make 9 degrees despite the sunny weather. Similarly Bendigo only made it to around 8.

    Breezy in eastern suburbs at the moment - that wind is really cold. I wouldn't be surprised if it ends up colder than the models are predicting.

    For this weekend's system - prefrontal bow wave crossing the melbourne area now? Wind has well and truly cranked up today, I see a 70km/h gust on the Perisher AWS and 100km/h at Thredbo.

    Some great wind blown @ Mt P & Nth P - some serious gusts interspersed with weak sun through racing clouds. Temps cold all day. Snow gods are doing a snow dance IMO.

    I can't see Eagles Nest at Thredbo. Cloud level looks half way down the hill. Wind has dropped. Think it's snowing up there.
