    Seemed to get progressively cooler on my ride this morning.
    Cold sea fog came in off port Phillip bay on the way back.

    Interesting. Sat pic still shows movement from north to south over NSW, but radar showing precipitation moving in from the south east.

    Temps are starting to come down in NSW. Ridge is showing flakes. Radar looks good for plenty of moisture over the whole south east. 1-2cms per hour is not out of the question tonight. Olympic and Basin will hopefully look a bit more interesting before sunset. Or cooling could stall and deliver 1-2mm /hour in yet another damp squib at 1750m.

    IMO remnants of the low that came through Adelaide yesterday is over southern NSW. This is supposed to spawn a new low in bass straight tonight which reinjects slightly warmer air and moisture that has been streaming in from the north west. So it's likely to get colder in the next few hours as the cold pool wanders across NSW. But should then warm again as that NW air stream starts to wrap back around and hit from the SE.

    Sudden temp drop in the hills about 22kms to my west. Effectively the northern end of the Kosci NP. Just now.

    Thredbo top station took a similar drop...

    i reckon it must get some whacky orographic effect from that direction, it often produces lots of snow from system's that look marginal at best

    Temps not going the right way in NSW. SE feed is not showing much temp drop so not looking promising. Cold pool appears to have also headed north IMO although some temps drops in western Vic may be good for tomorrow but most of the moisture may be gone. Hopefully the morning will show some positive change.

    Some major radar echoes around Bairnsdale radar, temps marginal... Hoping that some white is making it to the resorts
    Edit also wish the Hotham central can, which is nicely lit, would continue to refresh after 5:30.. And DP have better lighting ..

    Just saw those. If the temps behave we may get a good result in Perisher. Plenty of incoming on radar and 3.6mm in last hour. May push to open FV.
