    Agreed, But that stupid AWS is still broken, is that a new one seen from the car park cam on top of a flag pole?

    Baw Baw still at it with 14mm in the gauge since 9am, Bom forecasts a top of -1 tomorrow

    Re: Observations: 12-17th June System

    It may be, but they don't know how to hook a weather station to the internet. Last year's person who did the little that was done, pulled it off the internet before they finished up at the mountain. [​IMG] I think they plan to ask Ian. Hope he can help them. In the meantime we get Rubicon's weather - totally irrelevant to LM.

    Pics coming up on my FB feed are suggesting 4-5cm at Buller already, that's in less than an hour.

    The ribs on that APIRA club roof in the cam image are about 5CM.
    When they vanish its +5CM.

    Been a couple of light showers here in jindy would think perisher will get its standard 2cm a night from this system again.

    Looks like LM has lost a lot of it overnight [​IMG] Will be interesting when the toboggan cam comes on line. Hopefully up higher, they haven't lost too much.

    Re: Observations: 12-17th June System

    Radar suggests a little more moisture, with baw baw picking up a few mm in the last few hours. The cams don't seem to be indicative of the moisture that is appearing on the radar though. Maybe im just being too optimistic.

    Re: Observations: 12-17th June System

    We left Perisher just before 4pm and it was heavily snowing big fat flakes at that time, and was light snow on and off during the day. Snow report on snowFM said they expect the same lift scenario tomorrow as was today - which will mean another drive to Perisher for cub and myself.

    Well this obs thread only covers to 17th, but Perisher copped a sneaky few cms overnight down to Smigs. Looks very wintery.

    Tassie is now "shadowing" on national radar/sat composite. [​IMG]
