    Quick 10mm at Mt Ginini all below zero degrees. Heavier band on the radar went over the Tinderries, so they should be nicely coated tomorrow morning.

    Nah, outta context... I was replying to your quote of "Must be snowing up there"...
    I think the BM's will get some in the early hours of tomorrow - hence the Blackheath twitter quote.

    Looks like the eye of the low is tracking just inland of the coast, but following coastline. Pulling in some great moisture.

    Yep, was mostly steady rain from late morning, with a few heavy falls mid afternoon. Currently blowing a gale and intermittent showers. Our guage guessing a bit over 30mm. And sat between 8-9C most of the day! (We're close to coast between Bairnsdale and Lakes Entrance.)

    Looks to have stopped in Thredbo. Possibly underwhelming totals by morning (sub 10cm)?

    Still snowing albeit much lighter than before. Sat pic sgows that being the end of the heavy stuff. Id guess a quick 15cm. Maybe another 5cm to come up higher over the next day. About what the forecast suggested earlier this morning.
