Mount Boyce (1,080 m) is 1 degree with precipitation (0.4mm in the last half hour). That might be snow.

Lowest we got to here was 3c at 20:30, then steadily climbed from there until midnight when the rain stopped. 8.4mm out of it though, so not a complete loss wink

That's an awesome fall Stoxxo - much left on the ground?

Extent of snow early this morning on the Oberon plateau can be seen clearly on the modis/aqua satellite image:

Looking at that pic, the extent of the snow does not quite go as far north as Katoomba's latitude (which I can easily make out on satellite image). When drawing a line on Google Earth directly west you hit Oberon. So it doesn't look like the extent of settled snow even made it as far north as Oberon.

Hi WR,

How much snow?

Don't know because I'm in Sydney on business. I'd estimate 10cm, based on surrounding rain readings.😊
