    Some heavy bands rolling through Adelaide. Really hoping there is actually a bit more moisture than yr.no is now predicting to hit the mountains overnight (and hoping the midweek clipper comes off ahead of our arrival on the 21st).

    I observe that it’s been r**ning all day in Thredbo, and is currently bucketing down with no sign of white in the snowzilla falls. Must be stripping what little existed...

    Observed rain/slush for most of the day at hotham.
    Snowfall made some short appearances at the top, but unlikely to have been snow at the bottom. Photo of wind blown accumulation by lunchtime attached.
    After that, headed back down to base.
    Heavy rain all day down at harrietville. Still dripping atm. Temps 8 degrees.

    Yes, levels were expected to marginal for lower down but this time yesterday I don’t think anyone expected it to be as wet as it was today at, say, Perisher.

    POW mentioned the models were 1-2C under what eventuated. Made all the difference

    That +1 degree of difference from the "norm" is starting to have a big impact more and more often. This was a classic deep south injection and by the time it got to the Land of Oz it became that little bit warmer. The lack of moisture is also a continuing feature. Just look how dry the roads have been in the morning on blue metal and on the dirt.

    Fizzer so far. Raining in Jindy. Plus 7. Still wet in PV. Not negative. Temps. But maybe my attitude ! Really. Is it that hard to wish for proper cold ?

    Looks like snow on South Perisher cam and reports of wet snow in Smiggins since 3:30pm. Not perfect but by no means a fizzer

    I still have confidence that this will turn out okay over next few days and week. But a classic fail on the first front. Happened last year ahead of it going crazy as well.

    I thought latest updates show the cold air coming a bit later around 12 with some juice left.

    Sitting in Perisher Carpark 1 degree. The heaviest of wet clumpy snow falling. Sticking to cars but partially melting on the road.

    Great season starter / base builder

    Was at blue cow today (not skiing just sight seeing). Was raining there and melty at around 2 pm when we left.

    As of early this morning Thredbo was on par with pre Thursday snow conditions. Would imagine it's worse now. Definite gains above 1700m.

    Yesterday was awesome. Today was a washout.

    Interesting comparison from the BC cam
    Current

    Versus 530p

    Definitely more accumulation on the rocks next to the chair tower in centre of picture.

    Gee, watching from up here in QLD the latest Perisher obs doesnt inspire me much. Borderline freezing temps coming down so slowly but the precip got going.
    Anyone up there got a conditions update?
    I know in the past it can snow at those temps as long as the higher elevations have the negs.
    PV FV cam looks ordinay with plenty on the ground though.

    Still raining in Jindy. Plenty of moisture. Of the wrong kind. although. 2mos forecast for PV may change my negative mind.
