Thanks for the report Sidney, glad you got a fair bit of snow. And yes I think Robbo will get another burst.

And good stuff Seabreeze.

It's 0.9 at Mt Boyce, as cold as it's been all day, but there's been no measurable precipitation there for a while. Certainly cold enough for snow.

Most Sydney and Illawarra sites are between 8 and 10 under cloud, OH on 8.8, so there's cold air about. Just need some moisture in the right places.

EDIT: great picture Seabreeze. Interesting report Sidney.

Nice pic Seabreeze

Even though the change has arrived here, the cold air hasn't as yet, in fact the temp has risen by a degree since the arrival of the change.

Glad you're enjoying it. If 8C on the coast at 4pm wasn't wintry enough then I don't know what would be grin

I think it's about to snow in Robertson again, if not already with that fast moving 'blob' on radar screaming in from the south.

Agree temperatures are still 2-3'c based on WU PWS the same as this afternoon when snow was falling. Will need to get colder for any to settle.

Snow at Kangaloon about 820m ASL



Same as above but very overexposed because that seemed to show the snow better



Crappy video still but shows the snow falling the best on the Trig Stn Lane.

Great stuff WR! Keep next Sunday pencilled in just quietly....EC & GFS both have a decent cold pool but deal with it differently.

Yep will do, thanks for the tip. I think I'm busy on Sunday but will find a way up there if it's worth it. Probably won't be doing a 3hr slog to Shooters but if it's in the Highlands then it's not too far away.

If GFS comes off I expect Robbo will do very well.

Loc: Bowral asl 690m
Alas had to head from Bowral to Newcastle at 530, so no home snow chase for me. With Moss Vsle around 1.5 at 680m I'd think a few settling flakes in Robertson and Burrawang very likely given they are 100m higher.

We just had a short shower of very light snow, here, on the hill above Moss Vale. It lasted for around 5 minutes. Although it was only very light, is was quite visible with the help of the front lights of our home.

Damn wind again, average night but looks like it'll be quite a cold day. Ewwww.

Interesting overnight model runs now have switched - ACCESS interested in another cold outbreak next weekend while GFS and EC gone a bit warm. GFS still likes a cold surge but keeps it over the snowies. But still keeping an eye on it.

Cold and overcast here, but the satellite shows cloud to be coastal, generated in the Southerly airstream. Sydney's West looks clear. It also shows sinewy white cloud patches in the tablelands, likely valley fog. There's also a white patch South of Oberon that isn't moving, and a similar one near Trunkey Creek. Snow?

Pity that low scooted off so quickly, could have been some decent dumps overnight; air still very cold up there.

Here's a screen capture of the Satpic of our area as at 7:30 this morning, from 'Layers' (visible true colour). The cloud out to sea and hugging the coast is moving quickly Northwards in the SSW air stream. The sinewy patches on the tablelands would be vally fogs.

Satellite Picture NSW by Steve, on Flickr

The white patch South of Oberon and the fainter patch North of Trunkey Creek were not moving and were shrinking as the sun rose higher. The Trunkey Creek one was gone by 9:30. I suspect that these were snow that fell yesterday evening. Can anyone verify?
