The main rain bands appear to be passing to the south of the resorts & at this point that's something of a blessing.

So what have we got falling at the NSW resorts at the moment? I observe moisture on the radar, PB website is saying -1 at moutatin top, have we dodged the rain?

Definitely dodged the rain for now. It started snowing before midday at the bottom of the V8 and was still snowing when I left about 1:30.

Judging by the Yarrawonga radar the rain band will hit Buller soon. AWS at Buller is currently 0.3 deg with 60 km/h northerlies...this is going to be interesting.

Another fairly fast moving band about to hit VIC resorts. Temperatures are still borderline so there could be a nice mixture of rain / sleet and snow.

It shall be a very interesting day tomorrow!

Dusting at Hotham this morning/lunch, maybe 5cms tops. Currently light snow flurries, hopefully this will strengthen throughout the evening (and fall as snow down low where its needed) as this band of moisture makes its way over the ranges.

Probably working out well at the moment. Not much precipitation in NSW and it's a bit to warm. More precip in VIC and it's probably just cold enough for snow up high.

I was getting pelted with Sago at about 10am on the Nordic Trails. Ouch!!!

The clouds blew in just after 11am, but nothing was in them.

Fingers crossed the temps drop, it's hell windy but not very cold.

I am observing some heavy precip heading towards VIC resorts at the moment

0.1 at Buller so it will be mostly rain

Snowing at Hotham but probably all blowing off the hill with the 70km/h wind!

Little dusting in the village at Thredders on the cams - means it was cold enough which is nice!
