I observe that I am like a kid on Christmas eve waiting for Santa!
I observe that I will be observing the shit out of the next few days.
I like to watch all weather
Stay on topic. Weather obs only.
I observe I'm booked in at Falls Creek for 5 days from Monday, so will post lots of pics then.
(edit: sorry CC. Didn't see you post before mine. I'll hush until next week when Im on the ground.)
I observe...THIS ^
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
-1.8 at my folks place in Trentham Vic around 1 hr ago.
Texted a mate - guns are blazing.
I observe a late night Buller reveller riding a snowmaking-covered pony:
Just popped up on: http://aussieskier.com/social
Completely off topic, but pure gold that photo is.
at the photo!
I observe it's friggin freezing in Canberra
-9.1 at 7am in Berridale this morning and still -3....damn cold!!
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.
Snow guns are pumping at Hotham!!!!
Here's what a cold night can do - did a quick 'before & after' for Bourke St - unreal:
enough to groom a strip 30 feet wide
tiller would be grassing
still impressive though.
Its currently 10 degrees in Melbourne but the App Temp -0.1 It's 7.8 at the airport and the App Temp is -2.2 There is a chill in the air!
Was 7 at 7 in the gong.
quite a nip in the air
Canberra started off with neg 5.7 or so...
even Cooma was neg 8 at dawn
Yea Cooma below freezing until 10:30am today!! Whoa
i observe its not the 21st yet...
I observe SB is channelling his inner CC
Stay on topic.
It approacheth: http://www.theweatherchaser.com/radars/australia/national-satellite
Just got windy at my place.
I observe I will be refreshing that webpage a lot.
Getting rather windy in Moorabbin!
Been freaking windy in St Kilda since late morning.
Just got a text from Buller:
"The weather has turned. Windy, foggy and colder."
Observing on Perisher site... temps have all gone subzero in past hour (down to 1600m at Ridge Quad). Wind 40km/h at the top with some 50km/h gusts and getting foggy/cloudy. Pressure dropping... watching cams with great interest
Look at what is building over Spencer Gulf and the Gulf of St Vincent.
getting warmer at Thredbo AWS
Change is coming
(minor) warm before the storm...especially with a NW feed.
It'll change soon
I just looked at perisher
thought it would be warmer
Its neg 1.5
Yep there will be a degree of pre-frontal IMO.
Hotham top cams all frosted, Falls heading that way too: http://ski.com.au/snowcams/australia/vic/index.html
Keep an eye on Mt William AWS - precip hitting that shortly: http://ski.com.au/weather/radar/index.html
http://www.bom.gov.au/vic/observations/vicall.shtml - Currently 5.2C, observe as the system moves through.
Jebus! Gusting 98km/h at Thredbo TS
Just started raining in Adelaide Pitch black for a few hours now. Wind warnings, gusts up to 90Kmph. Radar says we are about to get smashed
Here's a pic of Jindy skyline (from Nuggets looking towards Kosciuszko Road) as of about an hour ago.
Looks like the first band is making landfall near the SA/VIC border.
Riding home into that northerly tonight was rather interesting.
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
Check out the little cell swirling up to smash Albany: http://www.theweatherchaser.com/radars/australia/national-satellite
Starting to rain across into Vic. Temps not droping much as wonds are still from the NW. It is going to be an intersting few days to watch.
First precip has reached Mt William: http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDV60801/IDV60801.94833.shtml
Only 0.2mm and a 0.5C drop, the next update in a few mins will be interesting.
In other news we should all pitch in to help CM buy a new keyboard. Refresh button is going to break.
Too bad Mt buller weather station is down
otherwise falls and hotham temps stable atm
Just an F5 key would be great.
Hopefully it aint down for the rest of the season !
At least we have wind gust increasing there...
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.
