    The weather in Melbourne ATM is pretty much the sort that would precede the end of the world.

    A dreary day in the Dandenongs. Sitting around 7c near Emerald. Felt warmer up at Perisher. Was like spring there this weekend.

    This band of rain is coming straight up over us and into Baw Baw, it’s heavy rain with those large drops which would result in rapid accumulation imo
    It’s currently 6.8c here in the strezleckis and bugger all wind to move this thing away! It’s just going to lay over the mountains and dump IMO

    We had 40mm overnight in Torquay based on the rain gauge I emptied. Aireys showing 22mm so looks like we copped a heap more just down the road from them.

    I observe I hate seeing VIC resorts get more snow than NSW a) because I mostly ski NSW and b) because I just hate seeing VIC getting one up on us in any respect. I further observe that this system was always going to be one of those annoying hit n miss scenarios with the lack of strong orographic action

    Dinner Plain a resort? Isn't it too steep for the average family of skiers?

    Looking decidedly wet in NSW. Flakes, but lots of moisture with them. Wear your ponchos, people.

    Not much going on at Thredbo now, and the bottom slopes looking pretty patchy. Definitely a Vicco special.

    Looks like the northern extent of the cold pool is sitting just west of Dubbo. 6-7 degrees at Parkes. Still about 9 here.

    Looking at the sat pic moisture will probably start reaching NSW alps in a couple of hours out of the SE.
