    Was up at Hotham this morning and it was FREEZING, blowing a gale and overcast.
    Down here at DP it is sunny and a bit blowy - the clouds are starting to appear.

    Twas a very cold night there last night. Snowguns fired up over the whole hill before four. Breadroll clouds came up yesterday afternoon, then quietly slipped back west. They were creeping back over when I left at 10:30.

    From the cams Hotham, Falls and Buller are getting something. NSW yet to see the love. Temps everywhere in the mountains all below zero. -4.8 Falls, -4 at Mt Perisher.

    is that going to make it to the Alps though?

    +1 reports very cold and bleak all day at Buller. No natural snowfall of any significance today that I'm aware of.

    Maybe not but I like the build up of precip starting to happen and I like the way winds have been picking up over the day and staying nice and cold and the barometer dropping. Just tells me there is some fertility around rather than things being flaccid.

    Snap.

    The fog around Cooma was weird, it looked like frost and ice all over the trees, and that was nearly lunchtime.

    I'm currently observing a lack of updating charts and forecasts from the BOM - me thinks they are having a hard time figuring out WTF is going on at the moment!

    I saw a handful of drops slam in to the window maybe 25 minutes ago, 17th floor in the CBD in Adelaide. Other than that, nothing all day except cold winds.

    Feels much colder then AWS shows here in Melb. About 8C, apparent temp 2c!

    Dry air too, only 68% humidity.

    -6.3 at Falls
    -7.1 at Hotham.

    Must be painful.

    Sick of snowmaking and only man made runs.

    Moisture coming through Adelaide looks OK but I like what I observe in the bight on the Sat Pic.

    two things..hardly snow related, but weather obs
    1) i've never seen a clearer night in sydney..was 60km away this evening looking at the city from waterfall plateau and it was crystal clear. Could see the skyline, aircraft lined up to land..was pretty neat
    2) its bloody cold in wollongong..around 7 at my place..5 last night..sorta hovered around 11 all day..
    looking like staying like that for 7 days, maybe more...that will be our longest cold spell for ages.
    rain streaming through SA..decent totals too

    10mm in a few hours at Mt Lofty and 5c in the Adelaide hills. If only it would all track directly east and hold the moisture levels.
    Definately an oragraphic effect in the Adelaide hills here's hoping we can have the same where it counts in 24 hours.

    Borked or baulked?

    Cold in Sydney with ice on the windscreen on the northern beaches which is very unusual. 4 deg near the water is about as cold as it gets here.

    I am liking the way it is developing around Adelaide so there is still some hope for something.

    stuffed, not working etc. Well for me anyway.

    Cold, windy and light rain/showers in the SE subs, looks like it's raining out of nothing but does look slightly threatening.

    I'm on the coast in Adelaide and it's been raining solidly for about three hours and showing no signs of abating. I'd say at least 20 mm this judging by the increasing level of my pool!
