    Just stuck my head out the door at Buller
    Only slightly chilly in a t-shirt, high cloud.
    I'll chuck a bottle out tomorrow for some reference when the temps turn

    I observe that it will be frustrating to watch this spring storm begin from the lodge in North Perisher, before packing to go home this Saturday morning...

    Indeed. Going into the storm tomorrow afternoon at Buller. Probably won't get to ski tomorrow, but the weekend should be great.

    This afternoon? At least it may snow for you. We've got events this morning... :eek:

    There's currently rain drumming on the roof and 9.7 degrees down at the base of the mountain.

    Raining at buller but not heavy yet. 4mm according to BOM.
    All seems very reminiscent of a system we had around late august last season

    Thin cloud around northern KNP, getting much thicker heading towards MEL.
    Plenty of drifts away from the main snowy areas still

    Clear snow started at Falls about 30 minutes ago. Temps dropping as clear shows signs of turning to wet snow ATM. Very wet skiers entering the cafe.

    Sleet began at Hotham at 10 am, started pouring at about 10:30 which became snow half way up Heavenly.

    Blizzard conditions now - starting to accumulate nicely.

    Upgraded to the slab-o-meter

    Nuked for a couple hours, seems like maybe 10cm on southern slopes.
    Bit of fun, pretty heavy.
