    Thunder and lightning in Bondi (~5 sec intervals between the two). Has been steady rain here since around 7-7:30pm last night. 43mm in the AWS since yeserday 9am.

    Buller looks to have picked up a few cms, whilst South Perisher still showing some airbourne flakage.

    Quick Berridale update: Rained lightly on and off overnight. Warmer now than last night - at a guess +3 now vs below zero when I went to bed. Some broken high cloud. Steady light wind from somewhere East of South - a less than ideal direction for snow if it is the same up on the hill.

    Sydney has picked up 30mm of rain since 9pm last night. Blustery, cold, dank, grey conditions prevail along the coast this morning (Bondi). First morning in about a month I haven't heard my resident Kookaburras outside my window.
    Alas, money appears to have still got my binmen out of bed - Contenders for the roughest and loudest binmen in Australia, I reckon.

    Moving much further inland than I originally thought as well. Was looking like a coastal fringe special earlier this week but picked up 10mm overnight in the Lower BM's with what looks like plenty more to come this morning.

    Live Thredbo Merrits camera has a couple of groomers pushing around a lot of snow. Looks like they've built a decent base added to by a little natural snow.

    Can confirm, it's been the same down the road in Botany.

    Minor flooding in the street. Cars wet almost to the axles.

    Looks heavy @ Barrington! Not surprised given how heavy it's come down here!
    78mm since yesterday arvo in the city.

    I reckon that's pretty remarkable, huh @sbm ?;)

    Those are some big fat flakes. Looks awesome.

    Been a cool and windy day in Canberra. Not a cold night last night either. Wind has made it feel a lot colder than it was in reality

    Correct me if I'm wrong. Is it normal for the maximum temperatures in the alps to be quite so high. Another few weeks into June I'm guessing they should plummet?

    Yes and no. To be fair, the outlook this winter from BOM is for a warmer and drier than average season. I'd say we can probably expect mild days and cool nights this winter. As a few people have said so far, this'll be a season made by snowmaking with the odd dump here and there. (Average in other words)
