    If we do end up with a period of strong SE wind, I observe there'd be a period of high avy danger on the western/northern faces. Kunama hut avalanche path says hi.

    After reaching 10.3 in Drouin, it's started dropping and is now 9.2
    Baw Baw might just get away with this one, have seen many from the S/East disappoint, fingers crossed for tonight.

    Edit. Baw Baw dropping to now -0.5

    Expecting a real one this time.
    Water is scary warm out there for this time of year.
    This thing will just load up when it pushes out to sea.

    Think we have been issued just about every warning they can,

    Gale Warning for the following areas:
    Sydney Closed Waters, Byron Coast, Coffs Coast, Macquarie Coast, Hunter Coast, Sydney Coast, Illawarra Coast, Batemans Coast and Eden Coast
    plus
    Severe Weather

    South P cam shows incoming. Even 10cm would be good to consolidate this base.

    The wonderful thing is it's heavily falling in Thredbo with very little wind (TS racking up 30-40 km/h), with maybe < half that in the village*
    *FOR NOW....

    Steady rain at Moonbah over the past 20 mins has now started to turn to decent size solid snow flakes. It’s cold as well so looks like the forecasted low level snow might just materialise locally.....
