    Thredbo has faired pretty well this weekend.
    Only light, occasional drizzle. Kids having fun on FF.
    I preferred the couch and warm fire. Looking forward to next weekend.

    I observe:
    -it's still june
    -theres no base to wash away
    -big cold front next week
    -the only possible outcome of this is a net gain

    If this was 19th July, then id be worried...

    Low seems to be about over the top of Dubbo at the moment. So far rainfall totals inland are a little underwhelming. Not much above 30mm .

    Don't want anymore at the moment. My mate at Condo has his machinery bogged and can't get out until things dry out a bit.

    I'd rather your mates tractor be stuck for the next three months and for there to be some refilling of the major dams and a good flush down the rivers.

    it's pouring at Persiher - 5mm an hour at present. Same in Jindy.

    Rain has stopped in the Illawarra. Is this 2013 or 2014?

    Early snowmaking is good and gamble. Winter starts from mid this week.
    Very happy for the Normo's of this world, always, regardless!

    Moisture is off the coast now in NSW tho radar and satellite showing good rotation back onto the Coast down South in Vic.
    The models got this one pretty well with passage of the low , for now ie....
    And intensity of 2 weeks back not re-occuring , also to plan.
    Big win appears the Alps missed the worst of it.
    So now we wait till Thursday. :woohoo:

    We had 3mm overnight in Canterbury. Fairly persistent, but not super heavy during the ride in. I observed cagers being mad.
