You can never tell for sure since how long snow cover on the ground also depends on how much snow falls beforehand @chunky but one thing to factor in is that further snowfalls are expected at Guyra/Ben Lomond through this arvo and tonight. So it's not like whatever snow cover's left there at the moment is going to keep decreasing at the same rate that it has been.Well that looks promising and seems to line up with windy. Some people are saying it will all be gone.
Waiting here patiently in Eukey. Slow internet so no access to radar. Does it look like precipitation will make it here by 1600? Cheers.
Yeah this is what I am worried about. Ground temps would be pretty warm so snow isn't going to hold. I remember this from my snow chase last year but the models were indicating it would. I am surprised how little is in Guyra this morning from pics. I was expecting a lot more on the ground so it didnt quite pan out as planned for many it seems. Orange looks like the place.On way home now, snowing almost to Glen Innes. The snow is getting eaten quickly, it may get topped up tonight when it cools down if keeps up snowing.
It all be gone this time tomorrow I recon.
If that last pic is the turn off to Ben Lomond and up on the right is a nice little dam down the hill from the highway then my July Chase in 2020 had heaps more snow than this event.The snow in Guyra is slowly dissapearing, driving through Ben Lomond seeing reasonably heavy snowfalls.
I think it is wrapping around from the north west too much to bring the cold air. Cross fingers for you.To be honest, not sure. I’m about to try and catch up on a bit of sleep. Dunno if the previous posts loaded for you but I was saying snow chances there still look in the “not impossible but still very slim” category. So good luck... you’ll need it! Should definitely see a fair bit of cloud through this afternoon and tonight, and possibly some showery stuff brushing the Granite Belt though.

Amazing they kept the road open, it was closed up until just b4 I came through this morning. Gonalook a beauty in the morning.Conditions on the New England between Guyra and GI are very, very treacherous atm. Puking down snow, wind roaring. Wouldn’t be surprised if there was 20-30cm in the morning if this keeps up.
Arrived in Stanthorpe expecting bitter cold, but 7 degs at 8pm is actually pretty mild. Was thinking of a drive to some hills around Eukey but if there ain't no clouds, there ain't gonna be sleet or snow. Next time maybe
Yeah. Didn't arrive til 8pm. By then it had cleared. When Mrs S took this around midday it looked more promising.
You propably will only get as far as Glen Innes atm. Road shut to Guyra & snow/ice on road just west of Glen Innes. Must be more snow around than yesterday morning.Damp drizzly start at Stanthorpe and 5 degs. Heading south to have a look-see. What beautiful country!
Thanks for the tip @Slovenski . But only going as far as Tenterfield. As KK says, very damp all the way from Stanthorpe south.You propably will only get as far as Glen Innes atm. Road shut to Guyra & snow/ice on road just west of Glen Innes. Must be more snow around than yesterday morning.If you in 4wd or have chains you could bypass roadblock through Maybole & Ben Lomond. Drive safely.
Just a drive mate and a look around. Take some happy snaps. Have to pick up some supplies at Ballandean.You going to Tenterfield for snow @Sandbank ? If so, the snow potential's well and truly gone. I got a brief spell of snowflakes at Mt Mackenzie late yesterday but not much accumulation (some nice videos of it on social media yesterday too). But if you're just going there for a nice drive, enjoy! Such a pretty area I always love passing through.
Awwww...thanks. I could pull your leg and tell you I was waiting for the perfect light, but I was actually just raking leaves and turned around. There are some other folks who can take a great photo on this site however.Can I just say (not weather related, or with any great knowledge on the subject) that photo looks like a work of art. So perfect - congrats.
I never knew why coveting was so frowned upon. Stone tablets hey? Go figure. Yeah, the gums, the creek and an ironbark hut. It's pretty.Oh yeah I know there are many talented photographers here, I secretly covet pics from 2 other members here!
But that pic has a balance; a serenity to it; it also evokes an image of Clancy f the Overflow striding in with his horse any second now.
If someone told me that was an historical painting hanging in a museum somewhere . I'd believe it.
It'd also make a great jigsaw, lol!
