    Scored 10mm overnight in the lower Blue Mountains which is our heaviest rain since the end of April. That's right, not a single day of rainfall has managed to crack double digits for 5 months!

    Looks like more on the way this afternoon from those cells to our SW.

    Ahhhh. Yep.

    Coastal Sydney has been quite a bit more moist, but still relatively dry!

    Up to 25mm now after that last storm, some pretty heavy rain and quite a lot of lightning. Temp dropped below 10c as well which is pretty impressive given there wasnt a great deal of downdraft, just heavy rain. Looks like that's about it though. Good result given how incredibly dry it has been

    Interesting day up high. Ice on the snow gums till noon and a little dusting on the groomers early on so there was clearly a “wintery mix”.

    Sun came out, then cloud and fog re-emerged before finally starting to clear late afternoon.....

    This.......with the cloud starting to roll in



    To this........

    Clear and dry at Buller. Beautiful day but it's not hard to tell it's almost season's end.

    Just sneaked below 10C at our place this morning. I don't know why this makes me happy, but it does.

    Stratocumulus replaced with clear blue sky now.Beautiful outside.warm,slight breeze must be in low twenties!

    Team Bears moving closer to Macedon Force Field this arvo but hoping for continuing climatic conditions....pity weather is going to crash tomorrow.
    Synovial joints just work better in the warm!
    CC will probably overheat on his bike ride home!

    Currently in Goulburn and heading back to Sydney. Very windy on the roads and 25 degrees. Feels like I'm already back home. At least there's no humidity.

    Snow held up ok today away from the busy runs (not that many were out there).

    Noted a lot more water in the creeks this afternoon compared to recent days. Thaw is definitely on, despite a good cover up high.

    First of the cloud started coming off the range about 1 p.m. Winds strong all day.....
