    Incoming for melbourne. More W direction rather than NW so will get past Macedon.

    Sky looks super threatening and the wind has serious bite in it. Going to be fun afternoon

    TBJ at Stirling has gone all pretty and white again. Hopefully they will get enough from this system to do some grooming.

    Been great to see no pre-frontal rain again. The Radar for Melbourne and the very, very dark light outside my office leaves me hoping for no flash flooding!

    Leaving the G in about 20 minutes, reckon I'll get smashed? lol That radar look brilliant, NE Vic is lighting up in the right way, what is it about that laneway from kinda Wang to Seymour that amplifies beautifully in these NNW systems, Falls & Hotham do really well out of these set-ups IMO. Buller too when WNW IMO More juice, so happy for all resort folk who need early snow to make a bizzness outta dis' bizzness...

    Yarrawonga radar showing line after line of showers sweeping across, headed for the hills.
    Temps at the Big 3 are all very nice and cold. What falls this arvo and tonight should be pretty decent.

    I also observe coldies crossing SW VIC coast blazing up, sat pic shows a nice little blob of a cold pool tucked in behind this rain band, should sustain moist SW flow over more southern resorts tonight nicely IMO

    Cedarwood cam at Falls looking good at the moment. They've put out a Coke can out as a measuring stick.
