Well spotted H and thanks for the confirmation snowboob. This system looks to be fizzing out over here, so yours may be the main snow news from this event!

The front currently blasting its way across SWWA looks like delivering some more snow to the Bluff and possibly other peaks of the Stirlings. AccessR has 850hPa temps well below zero through today for Mt Barker, which has a forecast max of only 9deg.

Albany's hovering around 7°C with the radar showing showers passing through; so one would think snow is a good chance on Bluff Knoll, maybe even a little sleet on the Porongurups.

Light dusting on Bluff knoll - Monday 8th( afternoon into evening). 2nd hand account suggests it may’ve been 1-2 cm after initial snowfall in the afternoon. I didn’t summit until pre-dawn Tuesday and by then cover was quite patchy.

Another light, patchy dusting on BK overnight Wednesday the 17th - similar cover to last week’s, but temps were colder - at or below freezing. Fingers crossed one of these will jag a lot more moisture before winters end.

If only there was an area like the Oberon Plateau over Albany way, you'd be laughing. Fronts have been peaking over SW WA all winter, even Geraldton is tracking much cooler than Sydney.

Cheers SB. I love to hear about those events as do quite a few others in here smile

Hey HB - I always wanted to drag Tassie to directly below Cape Leeuwin instead of Vic, keep the latitude the same and watch the big fronts roll over it grin

I've been to Cape Leeuwin- a wee bit windy but otherwise a great climate for the heat haters among us. Margaret River is exactly due west of my suburb in Sydney, yet the average temp is a fair bit cooler.

Also, Albany was the first burgh of European settlement in the Quokka state- why oh why isn't it the capital? smile.

Yes Albany much cooler than Perth.

My son lived at Augusta WA (near Leeuwin) for a year or more - usually cool and windy and often damp.

I reckon Dunsborough would be a pretty decent place to live for the heat haters. Right on the coast and the hot NE winds come off the water there.

The hills above Albany do get above 1000m, but that extra couple hundred metres like the OP would make all the difference.
