Where is the Jindy cam? I'm stuck in Canberra atm.
here it is: http://airlan.com.au/cams/C1/current.jpg
Is there a directory for these Airlan cams?
Go to airlan.com.au and follow the links
The temp actually reached <span style='font-size: 20pt'>20C </span> today.
That must be the warmest late June day ever. Not surprising though, given the size of that bloody low and the air it's dragging!
According to the latest BoM analysis, the two fronts of that low have occluded. Usually that means the low is dying. Better hope not!
at 3.30 it was 18.1 at 4 it was 15 and now its 11.4 hopefully this means snow in about 3hrs time fingers an toes crossed
Its ridiculously windy in Hotham at the moment, very difficult to walk outside with the horizontal rain and 130km wind gusts.
It has been raining all day (11.8mm) and its been quite heavy since 1pm. The rain has done alot of damage, apparently only big d and the summit trainer areas are skiable now (and only just skiable). So hopefully it turns to snow soon
Temp has just fallen sharply again in Adelaide and more solid rain moving through. Looking at the sat this thing is still packing plenty.
Baw Baw's snow is nearly all gone! There better be a dump over the next few days.
Are you incapable of reading or just desparate for attention? As has been said by a few people, your posts mean absolutely nothing if you dont tell us where you are
snowobssesedgirl: cold air still a while away, and it is only going to get windier up there Where are you staying?
I hope it snows soon

Trappers- Im staying at Bundarra, I'm guessing you're at Trapdoor?
I cant imagine it getting windier! I heard that all the signs were taken down today and other objects fixed down. 125km gusts actually would be a category 1 cyclone, so we've made it into category 2 territory!
I'm actually currently in Perth, but yes, I have a very close association with Trapdoor A few years ago the Hotham AWS recorded a wind gust of 182km/h the highest recorded in non-cycloic conditions in Australia! Good luck getting sleep!
I observe that at Thredbo, it is [auto-censor] with rain and about 6 degrees (correction the thermometer outside my chalet in Woodridge just hit 7.0). It dropped from around 9 this afternoon before a little hailstorm that came through around 4. Solid rain and some lightening since.
Really looking forward to the cold hitting us but it really doesn't feel like its going to for a while. Unless there is a huge temp difference between the village and the top of the hill, what cover there is, is copping a beating.
Read my profile if in doubt! That was at my house in Yinnar South. Happy now???
And I observe at my house still 16.5C. Dew point eerily low at 6 degrees.
On the way home at 5:15 there was lightning over the Brindabellas too and its starting to rain somewhat in our part of Canberra.
Oh and its probably worse then it appears from looking at the obs from the AWS.
Rainfall measurements are never accurate with high winds.
Anticipating cold air within the next 8 - 12 hours or so.
I Observe that my bag is packed already for a couple of days next week.Hope this system is all its cracked up to be.
I observe Hotham's temperature just went UP to 2.7
Can someone explain this before I start panicking? Am I going to be dirtboarding next week?
Perisher and Thredbo seem to be rising as well! Give it 7 hours and we will be at -1.5
The weather station at the top of Perisher has recorded gusts in excess of 200km/h....
Yep, I thought that too...
In fact I could track the date down. 2007, August. The KAC.
with the rotation on the low and some luck we may get all this rain back again as snow...cold cloud now just of adelaide
he he I can see all this rain tonight getting the impatient snow desperate amongst us all worked up and worried!
I'm expecting nothing good until about mid morning tomorrow but hoping it turns during the night! IMO rain for several hours before the temp drops enough sometime tomorrow morning.
Oh yeh, currently 16C and rather pleasant in Sydney.
Slight drop in temp @ Perisher over the last 20 mins.
I've spoken to both Hotham and Buller, if it doesn't snow tonight the skiing will be 'limited' tomorrow.
Most areas where this current front has passed through have dropped between 4-5 C
Buller should be the first to see some temp variation,very soon.
mt williams on 3.5 which is a good sign the next band will be cold
Looks like its hammering down on the Thredbo Village Cam and the FV Mountainwatch Live Cam.
Guys, relax. This is only the start of the system that will hang around all week. It will get colder.
Baw Baw 5 down to 3.2 in the last hour.
Buller 6.30 4.1 C
" 7.00 2.8 C
An observation,keep looking out your window and before long you won't beleive your eyes.I guess we can put this one to bed.
Rain always brings out the drama queens!
Now that we have mountainwatch live cams - we can tell if its calm and things are wind hold for no reason - not that any mountains would ever do that
trying to decipher your point
Need to be colder than that IMO. Below 2C.
Buller now at 1.8C
Massive temperature drop at Buller. 2.3C colder in the last hour.
Don't worry about trappers, he is probably just having his period again.
I observe that it is still raining, but not to worry. Come Saturday we will all be smiling - including trappers.
And steadily dropping since around 6:30.
I have much faith in this system, go you good thing!!
