Looking pretty mint this morning, but with the warmer temps today she'd be softening:
It's going to be an awesome October out on the main range
I don't want to see another snowmobile please.... but a rope tow is an idea
What time are we expecting Spencer's Creek data to be in? Nothing there yet.....
And we have a new season PB! 170.5cm. Didn't crack the 2m, but pretty funny to have the peak after the season has closed.
Hard to see if they could get through to CP anytime soon with that kind of depth.
Reports said they had already cleared it prior to last storm (though not opened it past Spencers)
Heard that too. They had the road open to Spencers Ck before the closing weekend, then it snowed.
Sat Sept 24 at Spencers Creek - only open a couple of days before we got that fabulous 7cm of bone dry powder on the Monday night.
Open to SC from today - and CP from next Wednesday.
Sweet. Enjoy for those who are there.
I observe thickening lenticular cloud forming over northern end of KNP. Strong winds aloft 15-20 knots in Bredbo.
Cloud cover will keep temps low, if it hangs around...
I dont read that to say its open to SC. I read that as saying it will be assessed at 10 each morning.. might open friday... but might not.
i read it to mean until friday it would be assessed daily otherwise open from today?
Off to cricket today first game of the season in Dalgety looking for a top of 13c currently 8c in jindabyne.
Crap day in Melbourne, supposed to be 23 , wind chill says no way
Not going to get any better.
The wind this arvo is going to be extreme.
Yes 100kph at tullamarine in gusts and increasing .
Im in Elwood, 1 street back from beach road, blowing its tits off.
Lots of tree branches down, debris all over the roads. would be horrendous riding out in that.
Huge big-ups to the commitment of the people out their slogging it out.
56knt gusts at Faulkner beacon.
Google calc tells me 103km/h. And it is going to get worse, sheeesh
Strongest winds we've ever seen, mutiple trees down, half of one has gone through a shed....my 4wd and tractor are under there somewhere..
Sort of what i said
Around the bay cyclists will be doing it tough today.
Yep, I was down the beach with my Toddler this morning and that northerly was blowing strong and straight into the heads of the riders. Lots of crying kids on bikes
Wow can't believe they are doing round the bay today , 10 mins ride Mel to Sorrento and 4 hours back
109 kph gust at the airport
Difficult landing conditions at the airport!
Also reports of a woman killed by a falling tree in Millgrove, very sad news.
The only thing that is a fail about that is the dodgy camera work (probably some obese plane spotter) Very good piloting in challenging conditions
Trees down everywhere it seems between here and Melbourne. Maroondah Hwy been closed most of the afternoon, Melba Hwy etc. But here in good old Narby, barely a breeze
@GS not good!!! Where do you live? Hope your insurances are up to date!
It actually wasn't that fast on the way down to Sorento. The last stretch from dromana to Sorento was difficult - strong cross winds, sand blasting, the lot.
But Frankston to Melbourne was brutal.
Agree! Have also seen elsewhere online that apparently it's from last year too, so another fail!
Went for a hike up in the Dandenongs with a friend this morn/arvo. Very windy, trees and branches down all through the trails as well as on the roads up
Any sort of driving in rural areas requires a chainsaw today, just in case.

I heard this morning of huge winds at altitude and I couldn't stop myself.
I took my plane out of the hanger at Benalla at 8am and took off normally at 8:30am.
Looped around Wangaratta, flew to Tumut and went with the wind south towards Hotham.
flew for 4 minutes unpowered just with the wind gliding Rare chance to experience the wind at its best. Took it back to Benalla, tree fell next to our driveway back in Matlock but happy Assessing my options for pow day...

Drove home from Mornington last night in heavy rain, especially around Frankston. Seemed to mostly miss the Melb metro area though - only a sprinkling of rain to make things damp.
Meanwhile in the North East, another 25+ mm at Buffalo, Hotham, Falls to keep those rivers flowing high.
Just saw that ...wtf !
A bit more like it.
