    Just woke up in a sweat and wondered why, looked at the current temp in Melbourne and it's 15c at 5:30am. Really warm night for this time of the year. Hasn't dropped below 14c all night so far

    Few mm in the gauge at perisher o/nite, but nothing devastating just yet. I imagine the exodus may start a little early today though... friends who drove back yesterday say the traffic was pretty bad for a sunday.

    Vicco resorts have copped it overnight and this morning. NSW resorts relatively unscathed but that's about to change. Time to watch some Netflix.

    It has been raining all night at Buller.
    Most of the open mountain is on windhold.

    Vic decimated esp Buller & Baw Baw, only snowmaking left.

    Still, normally nothing an the ground this time of year. Unless exceptionally early season, I generally don't look to get up there till mid to late July. Trigger for me is either/both of Summit/Southside being open (Buller).

    Just need those Highs to bugger off and head north a bit in the next few weeks.

    Camped out at mount kosi tourist park last two nights.

    Rained middle of the night hard for 20 mins or so nothing until 30 mins ago when started raining looks socked in now driving down to jindy (snow is shining )

    Thredbo - snow was pretty good considering time of year. Took a little walk up under the rope at eagles nest to the top t bar which was closed but found fresh and rode pretty well back through the trees under the old lift. Still needs a good 50cm to fill in. What’s lots of obstacles and BIG holes off piste.

    Almost sleeting briefly at the top of Bourke Street. Cover is pretty much gone on the upper mountain. I reckon Bourke St will look like QBW last year after Wednesday.

    Looking at Blue Cow live cam, observing mostly rain but the odd sleet as well. One thing for certain, it sure is blowing up there.

    I observe that having left jindy it’s a warm sunny 13 degrees just outside of Cooma. I also observe that several car crashes are slowing the journey considerably.
