    Temps in Eildon have dropped from 7.2 to 3.8 in the last half an hour or so. Should translate to snow @Buller soon.

    Buller AWS temps seems to be chanelling Hotham Airport at the moment

    Our temp gauge reads -0.5 and it’s pretty close to the AWS at night / when our balcony is out of the sun.

    Just got up to have a look outside. The cars parked in front of the lodge have 1-2 cm of snow on them. The road (Bobuck Lane, Thredbo) has a bit of drifting snow on one side, it hasn't been graded yet.

    It didn't drop to below 0 at LM until after 1am, by which time most of the moisture had passed. So only a dusting so far :(

    Wind has blown hard all night here at Sawpit. Rain and sago most of the night. Started snowing just before dawn. A dusting around the campground now.

    PV. Windy, sago. Guns running hard!!

    Snow on the road from Wilson’s Valley where it’s snowing lightly. Chains from there. Drive up will be fun for some!

    Hard to gauge depth against the 20 cms claimed due to the strong winds. Drift will already be great once accessible and safe.

    Smiggin is getting close subject to grooming. It’s definitely a resort priority given time of year.

    Plenty of windblown, chains from the overtaking area after the ranger station into Perisher. Road kinda slippery, fun if you like it like that, maybe except for the downhill corners

    Could be an interesting experience for some of the interschools parents today.

    I like it, but I am gonna remain a big sceptic of this obs.
    Thickness is nowhere near the level for sub-1000m snow IMO.
    Mount Read (1100m) is still +1.1C
