    Small Convective cell building in Sydney.
    Violet Blue underbelly with white Smokey whisps as the outflow.
    Tinges on the snow season to me.

    Went up the hill for a look. Not a lot of snow but plenty of sightseers out and about. Cool enough but not overly cold. Caught up with a few folks including:

    1. @rocketboy...pic at CP. Snow was not sticking.



    2. Eyre Cafe for a quick beer. Where it was bucketing down for a while. Melting just as quick but the temps were dropping a little.




    3. Video link if it works....?

    Means wind switch is in the air and the coldest air is just West of the alps, due over in the next few hours - so snow to around 1100m IMO.
    There's moisture on the 'dar so should pulse a bit.

    Raining quite hard here (nth Sunshine Coast).
    BOM has put up a severe thunderstorm warning (heavy rain and strong winds) for the area.

    Just saying, the temps at ~1800m have been marginal today so it's good reason why it's only now just starting to accumulate, as 850 temps are on the drop.

    I observe trouble brewing. Up to no good or ready to have some serious fun??? Shovels near ramp, landing pad being inflated??? Snowboard in the foreground - perhaps aiming for the first snow jump of the season?

    Rain rates of around 4mm/hr at cabramurra and nearly -1. Must be absolutely dumping down there! Looks good for it to continue for the next couple hours as well

    It is a L ON G drive to Mt BB and/or Mt.St.G. just to see some possibly rock hopper skiing snow.

    By 5 PM it had settled quite nicely at CP. About 4 cms on the boardwalk. Snow was settling in PV and Smigs. Light snow was falling (and melting) as far down as Wilson’s Valley.






    A good little weather event this one for Autumn. Snow on the hill and 22 mm of rain across the paddocks!

    Fireplace on.........

    I have just been for a walk in the park near my house. I could not feel my feet or my hands and it poured with rain. It feels like winter.

    It's only relative if you mention where 'your house' is, roughly. You do that much BC, is your home Seaman's Hut or downtown Alice Springs?
