    Perhaps she is just rubbing her snow love on the alps - like a cat with two arseholes.

    The low - eye seems stationary and not dropping further South. It would be great to see it move SW at 300 Km.

    I observe that I'm likely to do one of my weather stories for news.com.au this afternoon and that I may take one or two of the pics in this thread with attribution to both pic taker and site if possible. Cheers all. Let it snow

    Interesting stuff, it's quite different. Top of Karels was pretty harsh with mist and ice. In fact most of the usual aspects are not that great, it's lying quite deep in NW facing areas. But given its usually liquid powder from this direction, it's a huge win.

    Perisher up to 65mm. That's a half metre of snow. Imo.

    I'm thinking changing the Falls & Hotham demo days from last weekend to this weekend was a masterstroke. It's still looking like the goods down there.

    Cats are awesome, most humans are not...and cause way more damage everywhere.

    I see the temp at Perisher mid has risen above 0...is this a correct reading with the top and the bottom still in the negatives?

    I feel during the day they are not as accurate. A lifty may have spilled his hot chocolate near it.

    Most of NSW and Eastern Victoria will receive substantial rain, which is great for our farmers. Alpine areas significant falls of wet snow, best above about 1750m.IMO
