Hotham have shut down everything below the village due to "extreme weather"... Maybe Swindlers Creek has burst it's banks...

Looking at the cams earlier today, I didn't say anyone out there apart from the lifties "enjoying" the conditions.
Ski lift company is soooo full of sh*te.

Some dramatic thunder with hail on the steel roof in outer eastern Melbourne.
Hmmm..............14mm moisture at PV. Sitting around 5 Degs. So would be pretty wet.
Looks like the Alps have taken a mud bath. Oh well. See you all next year

Not perisher ol matey
Without making predictions, I observe more liquid snow on the horizon.
Hotham 57mm @ 4.9C
Yeah looks like the main band hasn't even hit nsw yet.
Thanks.......(lift queue just got shorter)
It's September. I observe conditions that are quite typical of this stage of the season. We have 31 days of spring conditions available to us. Happy to share!
Rain started at Thredbo about 9 and got heavier as the wind died down and it was still raining at 1 when we left (in the Village and up higher). Rained on and off all the way back to Melb with at least three separate thunder storms (hail included) between Euroa and Wallan.
Looked as though the rain had done some damage to cover at Thredbo. particularly on High Noon (some brown patches on the steep section) and up at Merrits. Stills, there's a good base so don't expect this to be the end.
Haha, I should have specified Vicy resorts!
Sago/hail here in smiggins currently!
Bugger all rain in Altona today. I even wore my new Macpac anorak whilst walking the doggy and didn't get the least drop of rain despite heavy clouds overhead. I must have looked like a right twat wearing a bright orange jacket, or rust/ russet according to label!
Bucketloads of hail in albury. And a blackout
Hot Strong Winds blowing in Jindy tonight......not entirely as a result of my Moroccan Chicken recipe earlier this evening.
Hope for better up the hill!
Surprised someone didnt bop you on the head for the jacket, being Maltona and all.
Hotham down to 1.3, colder air coming with that storm front, fingers crossed
Just got completely drilled in Wodonga........one of the gnarliest storms ive ever been in, insane lightning, unbelievable rainfall....part of me wants to go driving there must be same major damage out there tonight.
Yarrawonga radar is epic! All time gnarly shit!
Looks like Melbourne during that March storm in, what, 2011? that tore through with a tonne of hail.
Albury temp dropped 6 degrees when front hit .fingers crossed for nsw resorts
6 degs at Guthega . Nice bit of thunderstorm action happening. Squally liquid powder dumps.
Skis will all get nice wax and adge tomoz by the feel of it . Looking forward to the colder air .....
Thredbo on the way down as the storms hit. Hopefully it keeps going. Currently 1.3c
Perisher still 6.7c
Has cooled down early AM but dried up as well.
80mm recorded at Hotham.
Doesn't look so bad for the hotham cams. Still plenary of snow about. Loaded areas should still hold a base for a little while.
I was in Ringwood when it got hammered by hail. I managed to get in an under-cover carpark, and came out as soon as it was finished. Roads were white with hail, but empty, so I got a great drive out of there with the peak hour roads deserted I figure something happened on the west side of Ringwood that stopped all the through traffic.
Sunny and cool in jindabyne this morning
48.8mm recorded at Perisher according to BOM.
Whatever went through Ringwood yesterday must have been massive. There is still accumulated hail sitting in spots along the ground this morning
Yeah hail still on the ground at my in laws at Bayswater. . A lot of flooding out there
Im in Albury. When that front came through it sounded like a panzer division was approaching
They didn't get washed away?
Buller loss of over 25 cm in 1 day...
Last summer at Kosi in the burning heat of January - there was an overnite hail storm that just fell in a very small area around the Wilson's Valley RTA/RMS station. In the morning driving up we saw what looked like snow patches beside the road but did not stop, later in the afternoon around 4pm we stopped on the down and found large mounds of hail still intact that had slide off the roof - this was after a warm sunny windy day. There was so much left we were able to collect more than enough to make slushies for several days and make a fax snow man.
On topic - this appears to be the first solid rain event of winter in the Snowy Mts all winter. The previous rain events have been drizzley affairs over 48 hours eeking out a mere 20-30mm of rain with plenty of sleet and wet snow mixed in. And looking at the TTS and PV weather stations data - neither topped 50mm - which is incredible given a "normal" solid rain event in the mountains can easily drop 100mm and much more in season killing events.
Given how 'strange' this season has gone, I would not be surprised that the previously expected Sept snow fronts - end up arriving in October. Moreover as it probably snowed above 2000m last nite the main range should be a treat for weeks to come.
Was referring to the inlaws... not the hail.
Did any snow fall anywhere? Has anyone had a look up really high?
What were the uppers like when Thredbo was around and below 1C? I can't tell whether the Basin cam is showing some new snow or if that's just untouched from a week ago.
