    Another windless bluebird at Thredbo . Cold enough, so they're freshening the lower bits with the guns.

    Brilliant warm sunny day here in Mt Beauty. Clouded over now but the ceiling is high. Bogong has lost a huge amount of snow since Sunday (North and Western faces).

    As like last week.
    Oh well. I had my last ski for this season weekend just been, so bring on the warm weather, surf and storms and still mornings for riding (Very selfish of me).

    Should post in bb forum, too. People would like to know, I'm sure. Will it r**n or will it snow this week? Hard to foresee.

    I observe bloody hot in Altona today, tee shirt weather. Has cooled off a bit tonight but planned trip to Mt Stirling is looking dubious.

    might have to look at a last gasp for the season at Falls Creek, perhaps NSW. pray for some cold weather.

    pretty good but warmish rain at Tumbarumba for the last hour or so , will be interesting to look in the raincatcher tomorrow morning. For those who go to Selwyn I would say it might be just about all over for this season. They didn't have much ( 20 cm ) and I would say they might lose a good chunk of that tonight.

    Can anyone staying at perisher, cp etc provide observation on when it switched to snow last night? From bom obs looks like precip started around 11 but too warm for snow initially by the look of it.
