The wind's picking up here now and it's turned cool and smokey outside.

The coldness will be there for early Friday morning. Just gotta pray for the moisture. Especially since its in the rain shadow of areas such as crookwell.

Yes, no chance......yet.
There was a post on ski.com by a former contributor to this site showing a video of it snowing at the Skyway at Katoomba.
The video already had over 40000 views which raised my suspicion.
When I saw the current obs, I knew it was a fake claim.
Why would someone post that?

-0.4 seems a bit cold to me, but I suppose it may be possible. I would've guessed it to be about 2 degrees there. Got any snow yet? I saw a report of light snow at Shooters Hill about 4pm.

Why not? Orange is already at 3.1° C, about 300 m lower than here (although my Kestrel Ag just flactuated upwards to 0.1° C as of now, as usual). No snowfall yet, however; at least not at this elevation. Perhaps in another hour or two it might start.

Not doubting you but it is colder than I was expecting, which is a good thing for snow later.

Yeah Sidney, moisture will likely be a problem here.

Yes, seems a bit low to me as well.....maybe, but maybe not. Cabramurra is only -0.8 atm at almost 1500 asl. Maybe it's that 532 pool of cold air that was forecast to head up as a cut-off.
Orange is currently 3.0 deg's at 950 asl, so AW's -0.4 could be right at 1300 mtrs asl.

She was told they were expecting problems, with winds way higher than the BOM's forecast of 35 km/h in this afternoons forecast.
In the SWW, the Metro is not mentioned.
My theory is the BOM are waiting until after tonight's tabloid news bulletins to issue for the Metro. We all know how silly the media can go with warnings like this and cause unnecessary worry and panic.
I wouldn't be surprised if the BOM update to include the metro later tonight or tomorrow.

I was incredibly surprised about the BOMs forecast dropping the stronger winds.

Almost just as surprised the Metro was not in the SWW as well!

Alot of models tonight bring the system far north enough for damaging winds late tomorrow, so no surprises about what your family member said mate.

Looking at it, coastal regions may see 90-100kmhr gusts depending on the orientation of the wind flow.
