    Okay , this is all in fun of course but last year we had real media cutthrough with snowmaggeddon etc .
    As Chowder rightly suggested this should be out of the predictions thread,
    Ok nominate away
    now its possible that the first front last week was called Telecrags Fist, but no name stuck
    We could formalise the naming convention around the first person to call out the frontal system as major snowbearing in which case im not sure who that was .. .CC?
    anyhoo post away

    So far it's got a massive injection of cold air with low level snow. Quite far north too with Central Tablelands included in the firing line. Maybe something around the scale of the event?

    Agreed .. i thought naming was only going to happen for events of note .. ie 50cm plus events ??
    Not saying this wont be, but i feel like we are jumping the gun a bit .
