    Driving me nuts that the AWS at Buller is still on the fritz.

    Hotham is -2.8C AND 29%RH - man they must be cranking out some snow. FC is 0.2/15%

    Also of note -2.2 in Rutherglen, -0.7 in Wang.

    Based on those numbers an inversion is surely in play and I hope Buller has the guns on but there is some doubt. The final snowcams of the day are great and I also saw some excellent sunset snowmaking photos on my Instagram/FB page and Hotham Facebook

    5.3C at Buller

    whoa 2.4deg at perisher with a dew point at -29.9deg
    7% humidity, that is pretty dry, you wouldn't want to rub your plastic fleece too hard and touch a metal object straight after. Or maybe you do, but sparks will fly.

    Thats a great pic, the cloud looks like a lava lamp.

    I observe I have cancelled all jobs for the next 2 days, the cruiser is packed, the Japow skis are dusted off and I'm hitting the road at 3am.

    Will try to post a few updates over the next few days [​IMG]

    Years ago it went down, like 2003 or something so I emailed the BOM and actually got a reply. They came up and fixed it soon after.

    I <3 the AWS.
