    The automated weather station system has been down since midday.
    Forecasts and aviation observations systems are still up and working.

    forecast of 36 for Perth on Monday.

    Team Bears pulled the plug on Alpine Operations after midnight...based on wind velocity and BOM forecast .....the Team obviously made the correct decision!
    Some bushwalkers must have had a fun packed Sunday!:whistle:

    But Saturday was a splendid day for activities.

    Swagged it Friday night at up top, however made the smart choice of a Tawonga cabin last night. Was actually quite a nice day at Falls after 11am. A fun camping and MTB weekend.

    Fascinating trough line looking to set-up storms through Vic's West on Friday.
    The upper level jet looks to knife edge the instability through Vic, SA & into WA.

    There's a sniff of convection into the South Coast progged but I reckon the models will drop it by the end of the week.
    Saturday should be a ripper of a day, down your way IMO.

    Sunday might be another story but again possibly further South.
