The snow in Guyra is slowly dissapearing, driving through Ben Lomond seeing reasonably heavy snowfalls.

Well that looks promising and seems to line up with windy. Some people are saying it will all be gone.
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.

As at midday, it was 8C in Applethorpe near here and 10.3C in Toowoomba. The mass of cloud, showers, drizzle, and rain areas swirling around the flank of the low has made its way across the border - expecting that cloud and precipitation to brush the Granite Belt there this afternoon and tonight. Snowfall potential here still remains in the "not quite impossible but only very slim chance" category.

Waiting here patiently in Eukey. Slow internet so no access to radar. Does it look like precipitation will make it here by 1600? Cheers.

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.

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.
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.

I think it is wrapping around from the north west too much to bring the cold air. Cross fingers for you.

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

There was actually a lot of cloud and some rainfall here earlier this evening and afternoon @Sandbank
But as expected, low level temps a touch too high for snow today.

If you in 4wd or have chains you could bypass roadblock through Maybole & Ben Lomond. Drive safely.

Thanks for the tip @Slovenski . But only going as far as Tenterfield. As KK says, very damp all the way from Stanthorpe south.

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.
Just a drive mate and a look around. Take some happy snaps. Have to pick up some supplies at Ballandean.

Many thanks and praises for great posts and pictures and all the effort that has gone into it all. I am now watching that next trough, next week, wondering if it will have a band of maybe useful rain. Still a long way off, but if we can get something rain-wise with each of these systems, this may be remembered as a reasonable winter. Of course, it is still too early to really know, but I am just wondering about the possibility of a big winter rain event sometime this winter. If I read it right the SAM is supposed to go Positive for a while, but I just don't see it looking at the models. Maybe some other part of the southern hemisphere. At least the BOM is optimistic.

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.
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.

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!

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.

Just to highlight what a crazy system this is, here in Launceston northern Tassie at the moment it is 15 degrees, the average minimum in June is 2.9 degrees. We have turned the heater off. In North West Tassie today 20 degrees was recorded at Wynyard, incredible only 10 days away from the winter solstice.
