    The moisture appears to be reaching all the way back up toward middle-northern NSW. I'd say Kaputar will see some love early this evening. Warrumbungles possible in the next few hours also.

    I thought we were seeing warmer moist air heading along NSW coast being fed back into cold blast from further south.

    Cold air from well below tassie meeting wih air thats originated from northern australia and gave us (Dubbo) rain from the north yesterday. Now coming back around from the SW.

    My (limited) experience is that when systems come in from the SE, the winds are calmer, and you get more uniform coverage all around, without huge windward scouring and leeward wind loading from westerlies.

    I observe right now that winds at the Thredbo and Perisher AWSs are in the 20-35km/h range. That's practically doldrums for Thredbo top station!
