Eastern Burbs of Sydney
Low formed off Esperance coast late-last night. Now a fully-fledged COL.
Drawing in a lot of NW moisture, along with it.

Yeah it’s wet at Buller, but it isn’t quite pouring as of yet.

The Buller trademark mizzle.

Very very windy at PB at the moment. Some slight icy rain for a few mins. Then nothing much else. Around 3deg I think.

I'm a big fan of before and after pictures but the before and after for Buller may be virtually identical...

Temperature outside showing 2.6 degrees at the moment. A few light showers and some mizzle meant kids could ski through the morning but we're canning skiing until the end of the week now. Feel sorry for all the kids squads and anyone else here for school holidays next week. It's going to be sub-optimal to say the least!

Someone keen to bag the last run at Smiggs, before it inevitably closes tonight. Who knows when it will open again?

There was a time once when I would've done the same, with so much enthusiam :) Come to think of it, the shitty day I'm having at work now, I'd LOVE to trade places with that kid!!
Crap day on the snow trumps the best day at work

I observe that it started raining as I went past Seaman’s hut at 2000m today.

Decided against camping tonight, instead heading out via Thredbo, a little soggy. And very little visibility. And some wind. Definitely not calm at 2000+m.

Appears to be lots of positive temp precipitation on the Thredbo top weather station this evening.

Good decision, me thinks.

At 4 degrees at the top of the express, I doubt it is snow. But you keep those rose coloured glasses on.
Not sure where you're getting 4°C from mate. Go have a look at the cams for yourself before you jump to the negatives lol. It's currently 0.4 at the top of Blue Cow, even 2 in the village..

Some of the constant negative comments on here recently have been tiring!

I got it off the app, I'm sorry if Perisher post conflicting readings, out of my control.

Edit. My apologies, that reading was at 6:50. I'm sorry if Perisher can't update the app occasionally.

Temps rising sharply now, although the bulk of the moisture has passed through, before the next lot (snow) arrives around 9am tomorrow.
