    Big band approaching now.
    Fair chance will be all snow this band, even Buller.
    temps all around zero, expect a 1c jump as it approaches then a 4-5c drop as it hits-imo of course

    I notice that Baw Baw are claiming only 1 cm this morning but there's at least 5 cm on the road this morning. Not sure what's going? But great to see fresh snow in September, let's hope she hangs in there for a while yet.

    Some definite Northerly movement. And look at the tail curling round and drawing in the cold air. Could be an interesting day. :thumbs: I am excited.

    Looks like a good 15cm or so on the Cedarwood Cam. (Will update).
    Apparently they just cleared the FC village roads only a day or so ago so they could shut down the oversnow service for the year. Management didn't see this coming. Will have to get the plows out again.

    I think you're on the money, Astro. That tail just might carry a sting (a good one!)

    Gusty day so far at perisher. Windblown soft pockets in sheltered spots of <5cm, exposed spots have no gain as its blowing too much to accumulate. Sunny periods interspersed with whiteout periods. All chairs on wind hold.

    i know they did with the last bit of cold weather we had. So if they get the right conditions id say they will .
    But saying that all the snow making areas have a really solid base so might not be necessary

    At -3 that would appear to be the real stuff falling in the last hour at Perisher. Tuesday should be amazing.

    Drove up to Mt Buller this evening at around 6pm.

    Chains were required for 2wd about 8kms up from entry gate.

    Still snowing now.

    IMO around 10cm of fresh

    Snow guns blazing

    Looks like drizzle or perhaps melting sleet on most cams in Victoria. I guess they've done better than predicted so not a big deal.

    My observation is Buller looks to have received dry 6-8cm + the 4cm on ground yesterday morning according to reports.

    Safe 10cm IMO

    Nice Acc on the table. 15-17cm looks about right in the village.
    Good luck to those who drove up to their accommodation before the storm.
