    Hail and wind like I've never heard in South Tuggeranong, Canberra. Gutters overflowing everywhere. Still heavy rain and thunder.

    That’s going to change very soon looking at the radar, big yellow blog heading across the bay straight towards the city and SE burbs.

    Rained on and off all night here down the peninsula. Nice sleeping weather

    I observe it has rained all night east of Bairnsdale. Hardly slept - the anticipation of looking at the rain guage. Still raining now!

    Had an early ride. Dry as a bone until Sandringham, but very damp south from there.
    Rain has rolled in to the city now.

    Hasn't amounted to much where I am in the Docklands. Roads are still barely damp

    But it is cold outside with the wind. Proper winter jacket weather cold (for me anyway)

    Now why would we want to encourage tourism through images of early season snow???

    Great to see the White stuff coming down though. Good to see it can still happen after another scorching/super-dry summer!!

    Sleet sun shower on the Basin. Ground meltage won that battle 1 hour on.
    Still looks good for maybe 3-5 cm throughout today IMO.

    This will be a very good cam during the season IMO. Shows incoming weather, crowds and snow levels at the lowest point in the Perisher Resort area. Tick!
    Do you have a link?
