The temp just rose 0.8c to -0.3C...so not great news.
Looking good on the radar for some fresh,about time.
temps dropping at perisher, finally! radar looks good for it to continue throughout the night. Someone more educated than me... are the 'uppers' good...?
nice big high fuzzy looking cells around wagga at the moment and the odd light shower.
Wodonga rain band has started its funnel down the Kiewa Valley. 1 Hour to Impact with Falls.
from the observations at Perisher AWS -1c and 2mm of precipitation in the last 1/2 hour. Just got word it is snowing steadily in Perisher Valley.
Looks like accumulation on the bottom slopes of Thredbo on the cams, a good sign
2nd that Sweens, looking much more promising, I'd even go so far to say as it looks 'set in'
On another obs note - raining steadily in Sydney with some rumbles of thunder in the (NW) distance......
Brief hail storm in Engadine, south of Sydney. Hopefully reflective of cold uppers.
I observe a dusting of snow on Lake Mountain
I observe potentially an hour of heavy snow for Falls and Hotham starting in the next 30mins.
That's a prediction, not an observation
Sun at thedbo, can it be
Starting snowing heavy steady again Hotham. Nice freshies in 10cm fresh gotcha. Mystified why they haven't got the guns on when so badly need extra.
Cams show it snowing at Falls now, rain at Buller and LM.
Is that just looking off the cams?
Dropped to -3.2 now at Hotham should get some good accumulations now
I don't think it is raining at Buller, I think it has just stopped snowing for a bit waiting for the next band to come across.
It's -2C there, i highly doubt it was raining with a NW'ly
Just had a big bright bolt of lightning followed by a big clap of thunder followed by a heavy shower of rain here in Sydney.....repeat!
Snowing again at Buller
(Will NOT update)c
Looking up from my place towards the hills looks like it is dumping down to the park gates. Perisher AWS shows 2mm in last 1/2 hour with temps now -1.6c
0.2 at LM. Should be snowing at that temp.
Some good snow showers today at Perisher but lifts had to close at one stage because of lighting danger. May have had 2 - 3cm,s but is was getting cold and the cover was improving. Was abosultely bucketing down when I left a 5.00pm and was snowing heavily to below Wilsons Valley. Looks to be some incoming moisture so we may finally get something out of this system>
Arrived in Falls creek about 4.30pm.
Marginal with Chains or not.
Got to Oversnow withour chains and then it was a intresting drive parking the car.
I am gald I have traction control.
Only 4WD of locals on the hill.
Only snowing lightly at the moment.
Will update in the morning.
Snowing very litly at the moment in thredbo village
Raining steadily in Armadale.
Evidently you left Buller early. How much accumulation this afternoon do you think?
Interesting - haven't had a drop here in Canterbury today.
Yes left at about 3:30 - I would say 3-4cm on the cars/roads that were bare at midday.
Ha - just noticed that spellcheck made a spelling error in his post
Rain has stopped now in Sydney
Snowed pretty steadily from about 11am at Falls, with a break of about an hour at 2pm. From the accumulation on the car I would say between 5-8cm (sorry about the quality of the pic)
Better then nothing then!
Yarrawonga radar stuffed.
Yep - I saw it go offline a few hours ago and now see this on the BOM website Not good timing for it to go offline
Radar service is currently unavailable due to:
Reason: Technical or equipment problems
Start time: 20:15
Duration: Unknown hour
Estimated time of restoration of service: Unknown
Thredbo reporting 20cm which is massively more than anywhere else.
Vic resorts all less than 10cm overnight.
Agreed, could have been an isolated/localised heavy fall (Did the wind turn more to the S during the night?). Looking at the cams though I would tend to agree.....the trees look very nicely coated even right down to Friday Flat which is always a good indicator....
Must have been very localized with Charlotte Pass only reporting 5cm new Maybe Thredbo are including man made
Only a dusting at LM
Sunday was great at Thredbo, snowed all day with wet snow at the village (a few cms settling on the car) and about 10-20cm at a guess up top. Periods of soft hail but mostly flakes. Above cruiser chair there were fresh drifts ~30-40cm deep.
cleared up late in the day, hopefully temps and precipitation stays as is for the rest of the week. Probably still a net loss over the last week but at least its been replaced with fresh dry.
@Nidecker with Saturday night + Sunday, 20cm at the top of the mountain is definately plausible.
Hmmm ChrisM @charlottepass had 5cm on their snow report this morning, but just now, tweets 10cm
overnight at Falls Creek:
Radar starting to show some scattered showers increasing. According to BOM chance of some storms this afternoon temps look good at the resorts today if they hit may get some localised heavier stuff
And the cams at Perisher have that look about them that the weather is about to set in too loweeee
Freezing in Jindy just sat outside for lunch and it cant be much more then 5 or 6c
crunchy white coco pops
Snowing again at Falls.
