    I like the fact that pre frontal it is at just a tad above -1.

    It will snow up to 2 or 3c.

    Previous years we would see this pre frontal temp as being 4-5c.

    So once we get closer to the front this should drop through 0 nicely.

    Don't get too excited. Absolutely nothing happening on the Perisher or South Perisher cams at the moment. Yawn. I'm off to bed - will check progress in the morning.

    Wind is definitely picking up in Falls. Just got inside and yes it does feel quite warm outside. That band of moisture should hit very soon but temps are above zero. Anyone know when the cooler air is due? Will this fall as clear snow?

    I was out to dinner 10km on the SW side of Mt Macedon and kept looking outside waiting for a deluge. The force field cut that juicy band in half, bloody NW suburbs miss out again. Oh well, it's heading where we want it, that's all dat matters right now! #dascrazeeseason ❄️

    Apira would be lucky to be higher than LTB cam. Could in fact be lower.

    ^^Thought there'd have been a couple of hundred metres in it, but yeah, just checked the map and it's probably not as much as I thought from walking around.
