    She begins.
    Looks like some showers streaming down from the NNW towards the Victorian resorts.
    Curious temps last night at Perisher.
    8 degree change from -3 at 8pm to +4.6 at 2am

    Raining lightly at Buller. Nothing really significant so far.
    Some activity on the way, per radar.

    Couple of hours away yet. Won’t be a drastic drop as the support is in the upper levels today.

    Mount William, Vic dropped a degree or two around 3-4am, so expect an improvement around 10 am IMO.

    Dropped a couple of degrees overnight in Sawmill (currently 9 degrees) but looks like the mountain is steady as she goes between 2 and 3 degrees. We've almost forgotten what a sub-zero temperature is at Buller after the last week.

    A genuine optimist might call what is falling now a winter mix, it could be called r$&@ or wet slop, not exactly clear in colour but not exactly what we want yet.

    Temps have dropped several degrees at Buller in the last couple of hours, sitting on 0.5 now per BOM obs. Oddly temps near the resort entry have risen 4 degrees in that time.
