    Today's progress. Nice NW moisture feed. With cold air feeding in south. Looks like a nice recipe.

    Still looks good for up high in NSW. 1800m+ Mt William has been less than 5 for the last 12 hours or so. Not going to warm up much. IMO of course.

    Temps are marginal but defying the odds. Encouraging.

    Temps will be marginal for the NSW resorts until around midday today when you see winds shift more WSW. Adelaide has only just gone SW in the last hour (4-5hrs of marginal temps yet).
    Frontal precip is on the way out. Looks patchy out west.

    Looks like nothing but r*** right now for 99% of the NSW resorts, even though a reading of 0deg (and on it's way down) for Tbo top station.

    Looking at the sat pic it looks like the bulk of the moisture is going to miss the NSW Alps this morning. Parted like the red sea.

    up top perhaps.
    Nothing much settling down low and nothing surprising about that.

    Village Bowl at Falls ATM.

    It wasn't as cold as I expected it to be when I headed out for a swim early this morning - car was saying 11 degrees when I drove to the pool at 6am.

    With this snotty stuff at marginal temps we need lots of it to fall fast for it to start to accumulate.

    Snow down to the gully at falls (1450m), so I suspect snow level of about 1400 and falling....

    I like the fact you're in it this week. I had my turn for a couple of days last week. In the hills. Temps between 1-2 degrees and 50km/hr wind and mizzly rain for a day and a half. Sitting in the car heater for 6 hours on the way home has never felt so good.
