    Gets colder again early tomorrow morning, but will have dried out by then. ABove 1600m still good. Snow making can sort out the stuff below that in a couple of cold clear nights.

    Finally home.
    Most feral trip up the hill ever, and that’s including some particularly anxious tips in 81, and when the road was still dirt.
    Think ARC got caught by surprise, and couple folks without chains nearly spoilt our night.
    2 feet in DP, as good as it ever gets midwinter.

    This is the coldest rain event I can remember in Sydney for some time. 7.9C on the coast this morning and pouring down. Big rumbles of thunder at my place in the Shire too.

    Looking at the radar the Warragamba area is copping it. Good timing as we've just been put on water restrictions.

    Have to agree, temps in the 6-9C range in the Sydney basin.
    Good rain (4mm/hr) here in E burbs.
    Thunder rumbling out to sea.
    AXS-R did overcook the winds though - we're seeing nothing over 25 knots here with 40 knots in the progg for 7am.

    EDIT: Winds look a little late as down the coast is touching 80-90km/h winds. Standby Sydney.

    130km/h at Ulladulla is pretty incredible though, and it’s working its way north according to the doppler.

    I’ve never seen a number that big in what is not traditionally a high wind speed location.

    Perisher this morning there is snow on the road from Sawpit Creek. At perisher are snow is very light and very windy blowing around a lot. I would estimate 10 to 15 cm on the ground .

    They were deep tracks. This was wet snow in relatively low wind. So not the usual snow blowing everything flat scenario.

    All new snowmaker's tracks from this morning, from what I can see.
    Everything filled in pretty quick last night.
    The snow lances water/air hoses are covered since last night, so a good 5-10 since midnight IMO.
