    I don't think the colder s/w wind has reached Mt. William yet. Not far away though.

    Update: Suns now gone behind a cloud and my smugness has worn off. I'm cold and need a jacket.

    With those temps frontal cloud band will be rain except up high (1900m+) IMO. Then a bit of snow tomorrow but not a whole lot. Cold air hanging around the resorts and inland today is just near surface hang over from the last brush.

    I expect the temps to go up in Perisher - they have for all the Vic alps.
    Mt William on the way down since 6pm though, now down to 3.2

    I observed it was very cold in Canberra when I met Snowfi and her family to transact some race skis. left two very happy looking daughters walking away with very fast fischers.

    Now down in Jindy, not much colder, but expecting some action tonight.

    Sunny on Perisher FV, second wave of moisture blasting thru central & eastern Vic now, resorts should see some of this soon. Buller SW special IMO, looks to be lightly snowing there going by the cams. My man at P says its pretty freakin chilly this morning, no guns though I see.

    Looks like another band coming through. But last nights band was quite the fizzer with only 4mm in the gauge at Perisher. Though VIC's may do better.
