    oh Bears like that water feature in the garden....but back on topic......rain is to follow mid week ??

    is there any likely hood of any snow on ground by weekend...cos poor Team Bears have still to visit Westons etc and we are not ganna resort to snow shoes.....meanwhile over in the west at Kyneton Little Bears had to have play lunch in doors because conditions we suboptimal outside...not much rain mind you but bleak and cold...:whistle:

    What others said, but I don't know.

    I did notice she stopped after a few knockers had a go though. Maybe a coincidence....

    Unrelated to this system, but yes it appears so. Perisher AWS in the negs with precip accumulating. A passing shower I'd hazard a guess.

    Most cams look like they received a dusting from last nights cold air and moisture.

    Depending on which models you look at 10 to 40cm over the next week, with coolish winter like temps continuing into early June. This weeks snow may have a small chance of staying around until the next snowfall or when manmade starts.

    40mm overnight here on the SW Capes, a bit breezy as well, my gutters overflowed for the first time since I installed a larger volume profile a few years back. Dogs didn't approve of being outside last night.

    Around 130mm for the month now, so closing in on our monthly average (145mm). Quite a good start to winter in southern WA, a number of decent frontal systems being 'seeded' by some nice tropical moisture. And plenty of cool, boisterous westerlies in between systems.

    There's still plenty of wiggle with the models for this event, so I don't really trust them beyond this weekend.
    The latest GFS run (00Z) progression after Sunday doesn't look realistic.
