Well done Homey!!!! grin

I have a Ford G6E and I love it, however these days they don't have a limited slip diff, they rely on traction control instead.

In slippery conditions give me a limited slip diff any time.

It spins up one wheel too easily. Of course sometimes I do give it some encouragement whistle

Last year the forecasts were a bit off aswell... Around this time, it forecasted rain but I went anyway and was pleasantly treated to atleast 2cm on snow on the ground and some intense snowfall!

The forecast seems to have improved a bit. The BOM has snow falling down to 1200 m instead of snow showers to 1200 m . Willy weather has Oberon with rain 5 to 10 mm. WU weather has rain 7 mm for Oberon. Been watching another forum as well as Blackheath weather on FB . These guys as well as the guys on here know what they are talking about ( me excluded ) .When those guys get excited, I get excited . Lol . It's starting to look like an early morning run up to the CTs tomorrow. We will stay overnight as well. It would be good to see the first fall of the year.

Not sure, Meteye has removed most of the pixels in the area, only Shooters has a purple square now!!

I work in the morning, will have to see how it looks as the morning unfolds smile If you see a red falcon up there, it'll be me!!

I think you're right Cheers, there will be another chance. Doesn't really look like there's much in it, but there's no doubt that it has snowed there (Shooters Hill) this morning but probably only 1 or 2cm right now.

I followed through with this system. The snow was very minor .

It mainly snowed at 7:30 and a short burst at 8:00 and another very minor burst of sleet at 10:25.





Either way, it was something! But no cm's to report unfortunately.
