    100% agree with that, they should be looking at >10cms and maybe 20 by the morning.

    As always LTB, you come through with the goods my man! Mrs & junior LTB deserve a round of hot chocolates for that effort! Love the pics and footage you always deliver from different vantage points, lapped up like pigs with truffles! I recall a few years back you posted some footage of an epic buller system that left us speechless, filled in the VS rock garden from memory. Hats off LTB, cheers to you and your crew :clap::cheers::clap:

    Not liking the rapid temp rise in NSW, hoping it's just that last of the warmer air ahead of the main front.

    Temps in Albury have only risen slightly with the precip band and further west look to be dropping after that. 4.8mm in the gauge at Perisher so far and the main blob about to hit. Should be 10-15mm in that IMO so hopefully 25-30cm in this system for NSW. 40 lifts for the weekend so should be some great skiing.

    Radar suggest it eases up to snow showers as the heavy stuff now clears.
