    IMO this is a good chance, may hit around 2am, still sitting in Vic but the air is cold.
    Also plenty of Prec around, have to get some of that damage back.
    Need the wind to change to SW to get the full front up in time,

    The next Sat update at 9.30 IMO will decide the night,
    Just how far away is the cool air, and todays fronts activities.
    Im out after that and let the night snow or not.

    I observed half of the snow on Mount P disappearing under the bridges in front of Front Valley this afternoon.

    It bucketed down with rain at Blue Cow today! Absolutely heaps. I would say at least twice as much as the Sunday before last.

    Really starting to come down at Buller you can see the streaks of it falling fast.
    (Got the cam on AV priority low gain so at night shutter speed is v low compared to day.)

    thedbo just hit zero, for that to happen before midnight there must be plenty of cold air around, the front in the South will hit in a few hours, plenty of rain around and moisture, could be good IMO

    IMHO, Yamming deserves several high fives, handshakes et al. for outstanding perseverance and optimism. Colder air is now mixing in with the NW feed..Hopefully

    Falls: -4.4
    Buller: -4.0
    Thredbo: -3.5
    Most resorts seem to have had about 4-5mm of precip below zero, and there is still some moisture on the radar chart.

    I also observe that Yamming has posted 98 times in the last two days in these weather topics! Hopefully that enthusiasm will be rewarded with white snowcam pics in the morning!

    Back in MEL ( with annual trips to the 604 )
    Buller - started turning to snow around 9.30 / 10.00 last night as we walked home from dinner at Twin Towers. Noisy exiters from the Hooha at 3.00 woke me to snow on the ground and much joy in the Village Square.

    About 5cm outside on the balcony and icicles everywhere. might be worth a couple of early turns. Hoping that radar sends bit more our way during the day. There is a bit of wind here, not like the last few days but not calm as the AWS says.
