Windy as, gusting to 90 kph and damp here, Mt Victoria
Been hovering around 5C all night.
Snow at Perisher on Southperisher.org cam.
Really cold and blustery here in Jindy light rain. Was warm most of the nite - but finally cooled down around 4am.
Was quite strange by the lake last nite. Facing north was warm and almost tropical - facing south you could feel what was coming with the cold wind building - it was like the two weather patterns were fighting it out over the Snowys. But it felt like the cold was a bit stronger and would eventually overwhelm the remaining warmth to the north ... it better bloody do such.
Looking bleak and snowy up top. Might yet be a great day for season 2016
Cams look underwhelming this morning. Very little action overnight.
A little bit of snot up high on Hotham cams.
Looks like Buller had a dusting.
Perisher Carpark starting to turn white with sago.
Same for Falls.
Radar looking good, hope the temps stay down.
FC facebook reporting -0.4 deg and snow falling ~30 mins ago
Soundings are showing that 0C transition is about 780-790hpa, so well above resort level at the moment. That was last nights sounding though, let's see what happens around midday today when the next ones come out.
Raining heavy in Adelaide, temperatures dropping
Just drove up to Perisher and snow is settling down to ~1600m. Very windy!
HEY HEY HEY, IT'S SOLSTICE DAY !
I am very happy. Honestly I could not see snow until Thursday. This is a big bonus. I see wind, wet snow and observe holes and rocks and shrubs getting filled in and covered.
snowing lightly at Hotham, about 1cm settled so far in davenport
"We want a snow covered shrubbery"
I observe of an on snot thredbo village level
It's safe to say you rock @JaneBunn, big respect for all you bring to the weather world. I observe white cams makes everything a little better! Screw work, let's all go riding hey?
Jane called for 10-20 cents outta todays pre-dinner canapés, even half that will be a bonus IMO. We are only just getting started, the big dance is still to come. #SolisticeSaysWinterHasStarted #Let'sDance
There was never going to be much overnight.
850hPa sitting around 0 and 500 hPa at around -22C. Borderline, but seems to be working for now.
Looks to be snowing at DP 1550mt
Hope that continues
May get to 1500 m yet.
I observe some decent sized flakes on the live perisher cam.
Rainband is behind schedule (was originally scheduled to hit Melbourne around midday). Looking at sat pic and radar it's going to be a bit after that.
Just in time for me, CC & Chowd's ride home! I got soaked on way in IMO
It was ok on the way for me. Roads a bit damp, but otherwise quite reasonable.
Off on flurries now thredbo village
Making its way through Adelaide and eastern SA, about to make its way across the border.
Still cold in mildura. 11deg atm.
First time I've worn a jumper/jacket to work all year
She is beautiful.
Quite nice in Melbourne at the moment, blue skies, wispy clouds. Was a nice ride in today compared to the last couple!
Off topic, but as always, just as I bump the bike down the stairs, the heavens opened in Essendon & soaked the legs in first 2 mins! Gave the new marmot windbreaker a run so top half was toastie
Getting whiter at PFV...
No wonder it's windy!
I fly out to canberra from Melbourne tonight through till friday. If i can get any snaps of the nearby hills or over the ranges in the air, i shall post them here.
Into a strong N also for me.
I feel a character building ride tonight
Ride in was fine today.
Seems to be getting whiter at the bottom of Slalom Gully. So snowing down to 1500m or so at Hotham.
look at all that speckled cloud in the bight....cooooooooooooooooold air incoming
Rain just started here in mildura.
As it did, temp jumped from 11 to 15 on car temp guage.
That being said, from years of observations, 16 and rain here is normally snow at about 1400-1500mtr when it gets down there
I observe that it's raining and 8 degC in Bendigo at present. Cold.
Mildura AWS says it reached 11C at 11am and temp is hovering there.
Yep- i expect that will change to 15 real soon, soon as the rain started it went up, just as i posted. the next 12 noon report will be different
Do you have ADL's latest sounding?
Flurries in the village at Thredbo. It's still very wet though, nothing sticking. Top half of the mountain is looking white
