    Wet Wet Wet here in Smiggins, all the snow in the trees is gone and does not look like fun at all out there today.
    Feels like Monday morning all over again

    On a positive note though the cover looks ok still

    Hotham FB showing big fat flakes.
    Falls creek at 0.2 village level so should be snowing up high and out the back bowls.
    Plenty of juice on the radar, if the temps can hold, those 2 vic resorts could get some decent heavy wet snow today.
    Then when the low moves out to sea and goes SE the temp will drop for better quality to top it off for the weekenders

    Sounds like sleet sliding off our tent at 1740m. Not particularly keen to get a visual.

    Could be Buller's day at last. Snow cams look great there and even Lake Mountain starting to get it.

    Looks like it may have turned to clear at Falls looking at the cams, but its absolutely dumping on the buller cams, really big fat flakes.
    Rare to see rain at Falls and dumping at buller.
    Good for buller as they need snow more than any other resort

    Day mission back to the Guthega Pub looks like a good option. Or up to the Chalet is you are adventurous.

    Rain at falls for the last hour. Now turned to a rain/sago mix. Lots of fog. Pretty miserable.

    Temps appear to be dropping. Hotham back to negs.
    The cold air to the W over Buller should start pushing east and we will see Falls and Hotham in the negs and snow for the rest of the day

    Dumping at falls! If this keeps up, could have a very nice accumulation at the end of the day

    FC instagram posted huge 50c sized flakes falling in the village.
    Still plenty of juice on the radar, could be a very nice fall today

    Is the blob expected to circle and come back around from the south?

    Yes, as the Low moves East it will wrap around and come up from the S.
    Temps will drop well into the negs by this stage. Forecasts were predicting rain this morning and snow this arvo/night when it turns S. So all this snow this morning is bonus stuff

    Yeah, such a bonus with snow this morning. Heading to Buller tomorrow for 4 days. Was so depressed last night, woke early and expected carnage (r***), nice surprise.

    Talk about rollercoaster ride. Like having bi-polar

    Thats Aussie snow for you. Im up to falls tomorrow morning so I'm in the same boat as you.
    Fingers crossed for another 15-20cm via the S tonight into tomorrow morning. Plenty of juice in this one so it should deliver.

    Cams keep improving at Baw Baw. Snow would be sticky and moist but at least it's snow. I'm actually surprised as it usually rains in the village if the AWS reads close to zero.
