    Couldn't tell if it was wind blown or real snow..

    However we should all pause and look now.

    I observe that these prolific forecasts always contain a decent amount of fizz. People want it to happen so much it blinds the objectivity.

    Constant rain at Falls the last 24 hours, generally heavy, with strong winds and fog. No sign of snow at any time I’ve seen, and still plus 2 and raining. Snow on village streets running like rivers. Somewhat deflating.

    Better cold air about to hit buller, radar seems to indicate a good amount of moisture still behind it. Seems to be building out west of melb according to radar.

    Look that would require effort, ie going outside...

    It’s accumulating, that’s all that matters!

    Sorry to be a wet blanket (no pun intended) but this system isn’t going to deliver anywhere near what the models predicted. Today was a washout at Perisher, including at higher elevations. Even if we get some snow tonight I can’t see a significant gain, overall. And snow down to 700m as was predicted a few days ago just isn’t going to happen. It’s raining hard at 1100m here at Lake Crackenback as I type. On today’s observations, there is a loss over four weeks ago. Sigh. The vagaries of the Australian snow season .... (ps happy to be proven wrong)

    maybe another 20-30 mm of rain yet at PV. that next hit currently over Yarrawonga might not arrive before the colder air does over nsw

    with TTS temp gauge cooked on zero for the past 6 hours its hard to know what's going on up top - Perisher page shows -0.2 for up top - which is probably accurate at night. So lots of glug is good up there in them rocks.

    meanwhile, GFS shows tmw daytime looking good - cold and moisture. all day freshies maybe?

    I’d hang in there if I were u lp. Coldest air will be around that southern nsw area by the morning and I still think u could still see some very good snowfall down to that 700m level imo
    Today was never snowing to low level in nsw

    The Merritts cam looks very wet (to be fair that's lower) but the top station precip gauge is ticking over, which it never does when snowing, so I suspect it's still rain all the way up.

    The colder air passed Melbourne this evening and Buller is now colder than Hotham with both snowing hard .. plenty of colder air and moisture is to the SW
    May not have reached Perisher yet but what is see now looks positive IMO ;)

    glug will melt in that rain guage - it's ticking over much slower than PV BOM is.

    Snowing proper for the past 3/4 hour village at Hotham. Temp is below and dropping, should be lots of goodness from here on. Radar is juicy, tomorrow should be fun.

    Appears to be quite substantial snow falling on bc live cam.
    Even the sludge starting to stick to the cam lense on cruiser as opposed to sliding away.
