    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.

    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.

    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.

    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

    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>

    Yes left at about 3:30 - I would say 3-4cm on the cars/roads that were bare at midday.

    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)

    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....

    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.

    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
