    Properly coming down at Perisher now, and has been for a little while.

    I think the location and intensity of the L off SE Aus has been a nice little gift...especially the intensity 972hPa!!!! :D :D

    Nope, image has updated, and nary a coke can in sight.
    My boss conveniently took this week off to spend it at Hotham. Haven't heard any word out of him yet.

    Those cams at Stirling look ok too....seems to be coming down....

    yes maybe we will see some depth displayed on the Cedarwood Table soon...old imperial foot would be a good sign..set those stubbies up may be a champagne bottle could be useful if trend continues to gauge depth:suggest folk drink contents first...:love:

    Looks like the cold and moisture have penetrated a fair way north. Selwyn's cams even look tidy.

    Observing that it was very cold outside in Canberra - It has that bite to it that usually indicates snow in the mountains.

    About 15mm at perisher since temps went negative. Good for about 12cm, IMO.

    This shouldn't be a surprise, Low centred lows over the Alps have consistently in the past resulted in good snowfalls, usually heavy snow though.

    Damn nasty afternoon for moving sheep around near Tumbarumba. So far 26mm in the can , icy wind blasts from wsw ( direction could be affected by local hills), temp hovered around 4c all afternoon but is now dropping a little.
    Cams look fairly decent , even Selwyn , which isnt all that far away from me as the crow flies , had white stuff at bottom of Township which is just under 1500m from memory. Anyone got any totals yet ?

    Look at the cold air coming through The Bight, with that moist NW Flow feeding infront.

    I'm getting a little excited.

    Was literally about to post the same thing! :cheers:

    Not sure if there is any way to adjust the image feed we get from Cedarwood on this page? Seems we don't get a live image after 5pm or so.

    Things seem to have slowed down a bit at Buller according to the Village Square cam.

    Landed in Canberra. Phone tells me 7c and an "feels like" 3c.

    Light rain, brisk wind, certainly feels like winter and snow in the hills. First time I have actually felt cold this winter.
