Definitely some instability about. Some lovely cloudscapes this afternoon.

Yup - that instability turned into a nice line of storms 40ks offshore and is producing some very nice bolts.

Thanks for that very useful information and explanation, Dave.

Lithgow rarely gets snow Trav but if there's a good front you might get something if you head up to Oberon, Sunny Corner or Shooters Hill.

Better off from the south or south east.

16th July is bingo for best snow of the season

Yeah it's still going and very loud outside as well. The first proper windy night we've had this winter.

Just a few light gusts up here over night. Barely noticeable. Totally calm again now. I dont like wind much, so this weather is pretty nice. Big difference over a couple hundred K's compared to your experience WR.

Yeah no wind here overnight and this morning, quite a mild night too, temp stayed above 10c.

Should crack 20c again today.

Should rename the thread to Southern NSW Cold Front?

How about Claytons Front. The front you have when not having a front. Temps have all been upgraded for this region. And seeing as the temp has overshot the forecast max just about everyday so far this July, it probably means 20 every day till maybe Tuesday next week. It would be wrong to even use the word winter for much of the east coast of NSW. Its just about as boring as weather could be.

Funny thing is there's actually no front on the synoptics but yet it feels like one down here. Only because of the wind, not the temps. Still a little breezy. We should get strong wind nearly every night these week while you guys above get calm nights. It's the right setup for that to happen I reckon.

If you don't like wind GR, you'd hate it down here.

Apparantly snowed at Oberon/Shooters last night with "video proof" however the video is very small and badly pixelated. Authenticity very questionable.

Temps at Shooters were +2c and Oberon +3.5c with no moisture around and radars showing 0.0mm between now and 9am yesterday.

I think we did get a cold front, or the remains of one, through here late yesterday. There was a bit of wind last night, but it wasn;t particularly strong here. I expect that the wind would be stronger in the Illawarra because of it's local topography, on a narrow plain between the ocean and the Illawarra escarpment.

Cool and sunny here, with light breezes.

Yep more like a glancing blow up here. A love tap of a winter front smile

Cloudy today, bit of a breeze, not COOOOLLLLLD but not warm either.

Dull day, cool due to lack of sunshine. Currently about 6, sort of middling for how the day actually "appears" to the eye.

Yesterday evening it cooled pretty quickly as the more obvious change came through. I would think it POSSIBLE that a few errant flakes fell on the highest peaks but I reckon blink and it was missed.

I saw a couple of light showers yesterday evening that were clearly white in the upper areas near the cloud but clearer at lower levels. To me a classic high level snow shower. Some small amount of that MIGHT have reached a very localised place up high. Would have to be lucky enough to be under the correct cloud though. It was sparse.

What lows there are being flung up are light weights pressure wise. And even though the high pressure belt has migrated north a bit. The lows lack the grunt to take advantage. The high migration will stall and begin a southward advance sooner than typical and there will be even less of a chance of a solid change for much of NSW for this winter alas.

Hey Dawwwggg - as a bit of a coincidence, and this will probably change sadly, long term GFS is throwing a fairly big cold insurgence to the CT's on Monday the 17th. smile

Not much precip showing AND it's a long way out. However - Donzah is keen on this period as well for more snow down south smile

I reckon though, best to try and get yourself to either Yetholme/Sunny Corner (between Bathurst & Lithgow) or get to the Oberon plateau for Shooters Hill about 20km south of Oberon.

You could do Mt Bindo (similar elevation but more isolated) near Hampton but, I'd prefer Shooters, it gets more precip in these conditions smile

Lithgow is in rainshadow of the Oberon & Yetholme plateau's with SW changes & also around 400m lower than Shooters Hill.

Lithgow about 900m - Shooters around 1300m - BIG difference in temps.

Perisher reporting 32cm of snow for the last week. Hopefully there is now some regular frontal activity.
