    Apparently raining upwards in Perisher, as the guage has gone from 3.4mm to 3.0mm. Still very warm, wind hasn't swung south yet.

    The boys are breaking out the kayaks, shorts at work, mountain bike camp today, boats on the lake.

    Snow is melting very fast.

    The place looks sensational, all green and spring like.

    Very cold in the mountains tonight. Perisher already below -5C.

    Thredbo top headed for a max of just -3C tomorrow, that's a temperature early July would be proud of.

    It was snowing from just south of Cooma until Skitube when I went through about 545am. Sometimes quite heavy, other times just some flurries. A few cm acumulation next to the road.....still snowing lightly at bullocks flat.
