Settling nicely up at my altitude, and perhaps the first properly-settled snowfall of 2019 for Lake Eucumbene itself (1,154 m AMSL).

I'm reading –0.8° C as of now; –2.1° C at Cabramurra.

From the temperature/precip numbers, I'd be reasonably confident that Bombala (~700m) got a bit of snow this morning.

Goulburn down to 3.7 so I'm not surprised at snow around Crookwell. This change is packing more punch than I expected, especially in terms of precip.

Orange down to 1.5 at 12.00 pm and 4 mm's in the can so Canobolas would be getting some love.
Colder air pushing through south west Sydney now. Camden has dropped almost 6 degrees in the last hour.

TH radar is on the blink as well.

Reports of heavy snow falling at Sunny Corner and temp 1.1°C and doesn't look like it's stopping any time soon.

Even the upper BMs would be awfully close to snow at this point.

5.5 in the SH. Snow here (Bowral) might be wishful thinking though!! Very bleak, cold and cloudy though.

That's a lot Homer, shame it wasn't cold enough for snow there!! poke Actually probably dodged a bullet..

Oh and thanks for those stats on June temps a few pages back Jac0b.

Yeah saw a 940mm bulb on the WZ radar this morning.

Change has moved into here with very gusty winds and some blown dust from nearby construction. There's also a bit of rain, enough to make the ground wettish.

Very windy, dark and it's turned much cooler in the last 45 minutes or so. Sydney Airport now on 12.5, down from a max of 20.7.

Meanwhile Sydney OH has probably had just its second sub-20 max so far this month.

EDIT: apparent temperature at the Airport is -0.01.

Well this was certainly an unexpected overperformance!

Thought the moisture would've fizzled-out just north of Conroys Gap...bloody wrong, and glad to be. Not often does a South-Westerly front penetrate to the coastline (especially as northerly as Sydney), either.

Clearing up a little here, but still bloody cold; –1.2° C at 1:18 PM, with –2.3° C at Cabramurra and >40 knot squalls at times earlier on. eek

Deserves it's own thread now being as snow is falling across central and southern highlands when not expected. Frigid sw'erlies also penetrating to the coastal areas, with many places experiencing 'feels like' temps in single digits - very uncomfortable given sat was 26 here in Wollongong!

Since i would have been 2 year old back in 2000 i wouldn't know much. But a quick google search i found an article that details the event. Looks to be much more powerful than this event. With snow even falling down to Springwood which is actually bonkers.

I remember the 2000 event when it passed over Sydney on Saturday afternoon. GF and myself just got back from shopping and the clouds had a much more threatening and chunkier look than today.

More memorable was the following Monday. Sunny day. Very windy. Temperature didn't get past 13.

Great to see the snow videos. That was unexpected.

No snow here of course. It's cold and windy, with the Sun coming out in the last half hour. It was an interesting sky a little while ago:

Really cooled down here. Nobbys down to 11.5° with an app temp of 3.9°. If you look at coastal obs it coldest on coast.

Definitely still a long way short of the 2000 event.

Canberra's maximum to date today is 9.1, which if it holds will be the coldest May day since 2000 - but well above the 4.3 which happened that day (which is actually one of the two coldest days in any month of the last 50 years).

In the 2000 event snow fell to ~250m in northeast Victoria.

Thanks for the responses; some very interesting comparisons there between May 2000 and this event. That 4.3 in Canberra is extraordinary for the time of year.

Looks like we'll be extending this thread for some time maybe even the 5th of June. EC wants a cold pool to form throwing up an Retrograding ECL up the coast.
Dumping snow on the Ranges all the way up to Oberon in a straight line. With 38.8 cms on Shooters Hill. Even snow in Canberra. Bullish to say the least.
Obviously not buying it but has been consistent for 2 runs in a row.

Yeah it was horrible!! Got a few rain bands too which I didn't expect.

Well August has blessed us early with pleasant 80+ km/h gusts. Can't wait for a few more days of this rubbish. At least Sydney only gets the strong winds (which usually aren't that strong anyway) for a day or so and then it drops.

I was quite surprised while having lunch at the Fairmont Resort in Leura today when it snowed at several points. The longest was for about 10 minutes' duration and it was quite heavy for several mins. No settling though - well, just a little on the car. Car thermometer said 3 degrees when I left at about 2pm - which again, was quite a surprise!

The snow videos here seem to be showing proper, fluffy snow, big flakes, even if it isn't settling.

My niece sent me this picture of snow in a playground at Jindabyne (915 metres). Again, it doesn't seem to be settling but a good effort for May, hopefully a harbinger of things to come:

Driving home from Orange to Bathurst this morning the temp dropped from 5 degrees to 3. Fairly constant rain and drizzle with the odd smattering of borderline snowflakes half way home. Had the 3 year old with me so decided to forego a warm house and chanced finding some snow at Oberon. Started encountering some flakes about 10km out of Oberon and by the time we arrived it was just settling in town. Wasn't alot, but still nice to see something. A hot chocolate and some deep fried fatty goodness warmed us up before we headed home and hour later with the snow already melting.

MSLP chart looks good for late Wednesday into Thursday morning. If there’s a bit of moisture could be a nice little ‘round 2’

As some other’s have mentioned the May 2000 event, in a memory stretching from the late 80’s to 2017 in the BM’s, it was probably just about the best snow and general cold event I experienced there. The heavy snowfall of July 2015 was up there, but I think the May event just pipped it for the lower temps and snow at lower elevations.

Wednesday / Thursday is looking very interesting given the deep fetch of those winds. If there's some moisture we could see decent low level falls right up to around the BM's and maybe Barringtons. Should also give some May temps a shake now that there's been 2 days of cold temps preceding it.

Thursday morning has the potential to be very cold across the CTs, SH and western Sydney areas with those very cold 850mb temps still hanging around. Cloud cover and winds should have died down by that time, but it all depends on the timing of when this happens! Might be able to get my own snowgun out for the first time this winter grin

All up 12mm here over the past two days, falling as rain and snow.
The cold outbreak IMO is overdue, considering how warm the last two weeks have been. This westerly regime is good for us rain wise, but the cold isn’t great for the stock.

Not a drop of rain in Sydney in 22 days and just 15 mm in the last 46 days, compared to about 180 mm you would expect over a month and a half at this time of year. The forecast shows possible showers on the weekend, but these look hot or miss and basically coastal.

GFS shows another front late tomorrow into Thursday, maybe more tableland snow, but dry on the coast. Further out, as Gringos says, it shows a major cold outbreak in about 10 days - to be taken with a grain of salt. After that it shows a high pressure system planting itself over SE Australia out to the end of the run.

EDIT: 0.4mm fell at Sydney Airport late this morning. It seemed to be clear skies all day here, although a temperature dip at the Airport at 11:30 is consistent with a bit of rain.

Thursday morning looks incredibly cold.. Too bad the air is so dry otherwise places like Canberra may even get some flurries.

EDIT: Just looked into next week Thursday morning GFS. Thats just too good to be true ahha. 850mb temps down to -6c and 700mb down to -15c.

GFS always throws up monster fronts, but rarely gets them right. I do say rarely, I remember looking at gfs 10 or 11 days out from that big front that hit WA over Easter and thinking that you’d never get snow in WA in April but what do you know! I still expect this front to disappear.

That 0.4mm at the airport is false. Clear skies all day including the airport.

Also let's not forget how wet March was. Most of Sydney received 150-300mm. My 3, 6 and 12 month totals are running near the long term average.

The forecast chart for tomorrow looks strikingly similar, although moisture appears to be lacking and could mostly affect VIC.

I reckon about 3cm max, but mostly around 1-2cm above 1000m. I just don't see the moisture for 5-10cm and the 500mb cold pool doesn't reach the CT's so it will be pretty stable.

Cool pics Steve

Also the wind is back to being regularly audible from inside after a brief hiatus earlier tonight. Gusting up to almost 70km/h and will probably get stronger.

I'd usually dismiss it completely but 850mb temps are expected to be about 0-2°C from Monday for a few days before Thursday's front so it could be really interesting to see what happens when the air is already fairly cold. In fact Monday arvo and even Wednesday morning look quite close to snow in the CT's except too dry.

Never mind i was probably wrong. There are now storms that have started brewing in the bay. I guess if the downdraughts are strong enough it could bring some sleet near sea level.

As I recall, it hasn't gone above freezing for the entirety of daylight today; peaking at just over 1° C around 6:50 AM. eek

I'm real jealous. Sydney completely misses out on cold front events. If only this happened during the weekend so i could do some chasing.

To place today's numbers into perspective, on 31 May 1977 (probably the most extreme May cold outbreak of the last 100 years), Cabramurra had a maximum of -4.5. None of the alpine summit sites reported (not unusual in those days outside the ski season), but the Cabramurra and Thredbo Village (-1.0) numbers suggest that had they reported, Mount Hotham and/or Thredbo Top Station would have been below the -6.0 observed in the May 2000 event, and may even have threatened the Australian all-months record of -6.9.

10 mins worth, and 0.5mm. But exciting none the less. Being on tank water ive had to govern my own water restrictions. Starting tomorrow, daughters barbie playing time in shower has been slashed from 5 to 3 mins.

I was actually wondering about that.
Some of the videos I saw on social media today from Perisher showed it absolutely bucketing down with snow. Real blizzard conditions. Problem was the snow was blowing sideways.
I kept tabs on the precip totals from the Perisher AWS and they just didn't seem to be accumulating in comparison to the intensity of the falls.
I was wondering if it's possible that in storms like this, that true readings aren't recorded due to the fact that as you suggested re Cooma, that the real amount of precipitation just does not accumulate in the gauge, therefore not giving a true reading of totals?

Tuggeranong 587m in the ACT is at 3.0c now which is real close to sleet. Id imagine some of the hills in Canberra which go to 800m could get some snow.

Undercatch of snow in wind-exposed places is a well-known problem (and one for which there's no clear solution). I did a study a while back (comparing the exposed Falls Creek AWS with the more sheltered Rocky Valley site) which estimated the undercatch of snow at the AWS at somewhere between 50% and 70%.

Wow. That's massive, but not surprising. I suspected as much.

Very cold in Canberra tonight and surprisingly wet, still quite a few showers around, no snow yet. No models had precipitation at this time, usually dries out in a SW flow here. Temps are dropping in in the south, Tidbinbilla at 834m 0.3C with showers about, likely snow.

Alas the Thredbo AWS was out of action for 6 days beginning May 30th 1977 for min and 6 days for max from 28th. Right at the critical time.LOL Fast forward to recent winters and the precipitation reading is dodgy to say the least at recording snowfall.....W

In those days it wasn't an AWS (and indeed there was a period when observations were done at the top in winter and the village in summer).

All the ski resorts have very patchy observations outside ski season before AWS installation (which is why most of the Australian record low temperatures for warm-season months have been set post-1990). Cabramurra, run by Snowy Hydro before it was automated, is the only alpine site with decent year-round observations from the manual era.

Perisher ski resort will now open this Friday. Not surprising when there's been so much snow, maybe the best start to the season in years.

Some precip made it as far north as Warren this arvo as a thin band of light rain and showers, and colder winds, moved through with the front. Am working out in the Macquarie Marshes for a few days, enough h2o to cause some puddles in town. Not enough to do any good. Still, beats the 45c days and blowing dust of summer... I guess...

I don't think anyone could be found to do the observations, and with an AWS already at Perisher it wasn't a high priority for replacement.

Some cold temps this morning and high humidities, Orange Ap at -0.2C and 93%, but alas, I imagine things will start dry out now.

Don’t get me started on the feels like temp. It seems to be something that has gained ground in mainstream media as a way of sensationalising the weather. Wish it weren’t so widely reported.

So you don’t believe in wind chill - the science is settled 🙄🤔🙄🤦🏻‍♂️

One of the rare occasions Wollongong is colder than Albion Park this morning, bottoming out at 7.8, nearly 6c below average.

Righto, I don't believe in petty "feels-like" readings either, but that's not what the mainstream media tends to sensationalise. wink

At 8.7° earlier this morning, it was the coldest minimum at Sydney OH so far this year and the coldest since September 27. Most of Sydney bottomed out around 5° - 7°, apart from a couple of cold hollows out of the wind where is dropped to 2° - 3°.

It looks like Sydney will finish May with temperature averages of 12.8° - 22.6°, respectively +0.8° and +2.3° with respect to 1961-1990 averages and +0.3 to +2.6 with respect to recent averages (1981-2010). It looks like there'll be no rain before 9:00 tomorrow, which means that Sydney will finish the month with 14.6 mm of rain, less than 15% of the 1981-2010 average.

The broader pattern for Sydney and nearby areas looks similar, minima about average, maxima about 2 above, and very dry.

Another thing - no cold maxima. The coolest maximum for most places near sea level, at about 18-19 today, will only be slightly below average.

Blair FYI:
Regarding NSW alpine sites from manual days, there are 2 sites with decent year round obs, Kosciuszko Chalet and Kiandra. However these are on original paper documents (F68s) stored in the NSW Archives. I found them when doing some consultative work for Bureau in 2011. Kosc Chalet dates fro 1911 until it burnt down in early 50s. Kiandra since 1922. All daily readings of temps, rain and some visual obs. In process of transcribing them onto my laptop. Would be a valuable addition to Bureau's database. Mike.

Seems the records you expected didn't evenutate - thanks in part to cloud in the wake of the cold fronts still covering a decent portion of the state. The only noteworthy minimum was Glen Innes Airport with a low of -9.8°C, equalling the record set on 31 May 2006.

May 2019 in Sydney is very likely to be the 4 warmest on record in terms of average temperature. Only other years as warm: 1958, 2017 and 2007. Even the average minimum was warm (in 2nd decile), despite very dry conditions and dominant HP ridges that should promote cold nights. There are similarities with 1958, the warmest Sydney May on record, which was also very dry with mild nights and warm days.

I think that the Bankstown site is a good one to represent 'Sydney'. It has 50 years of records at the same site, is online and has a near complete record. Sydney Airport is good, but seems to be increasingly UHI-affected.

For May 2019, temperatures there are tracking 8.7 to 22.5.
Assuming that today's maximum is close to 20, that's how it will finish. These values are respectively -0.7 to +1.9 with regard to 1968-2018 means.

Note: there's a missing maximum for the 22nd, which would have been about 25, increasing the average max by 0.1

Regarding Sydney OH, I think that long term cool month averages for maxima are now practically meaningless. We need to at least disregard anything before the 1917 site move. Last year I downloaded its stats into a spreadsheet and calculated 30 and 50 year averages to compare to other sites. For May, the 1968-2018 average min-max are 11.9 to 20.6. May 2019 looks like finishing +0.9 and +2.0 with regard to these.

Note: OH Maxima have been above this average every May since 2012.

To add to that Dalby and Applethorpe in QLD also beat their records. Applethorpe has almost 50 years of data and beat it's May record by 2.1°C which is a wide margin.

Yeah I think the Gib is the best bet considering it's pretty marginal! Went for a quick drive up there the morning after the July 2015 event and there were cars sliding off the road everywhere so it can get pretty hairy with snow on the road. Had to be 10-15cm. Not that I'm expecting anything like that this time around. (hope to be surprised)

It will be interesting to see if it comes off.

I am assuming that the blue-shaded areas signify snow. Am I right? What are the numbers (e.g. 4.7 at Taralga, 0.1 at Picton)?

Mild and cloudy here after sunny periods earlier this morning. The Satellite shows Sydney's West under sunshine. As of 9:00, it hasn't rained in Sydney for 25 days.

P.S. We haven't heard from Eddy for a while. Hope all is OK.

Yeah the blue shading and the numbers indicate where and how much snow is expected to fall. Due to the resolution of the maps it can show snow will fall where it shouldn't, so just use it as a general indicator using knowledge of elevations etc

GFS progging 85 knots winds (160ph) at 850mb (1400m) for tuesday morning right over me and the rest of the Illawarra coast!! They are also showing 70 knot winds (130kph) at 925mb (700m) and 110kph gusts at sea level. They had similar numbers on the last run and it isn't too far away either. Could be some serious areas of destruction if this comes off. This pocket of abnormally warm water off the southern NSW coastline is what I believe is causing this low to bomb like a cyclone. If these winds come off it would be equal to a high end Cat 2 cyclone

Looks like an interesting one for the SE corner. Perhaps some snow around Nimitabel and the like.

Same here. A beautiful mostly sunny, albeit cool afternoon.
Yet just 70 - 80 km's to the north, it's pissing down.
Who'd have thunk it!!

I don’t have a rain gauge(still saving) . But the creek behind my house gives me a good bearing. It has a one foot wave. April 2015 storm was about 3 ft. So a significant drop when ever a stand still wave. Creek is currently 5m wide.

There have been a few good falls today in the Newcastle and Lake Macquarie areas, including 27 mm at Blacksmiths and a number of 20+ mm in Newcastle suburbs.

EDIT:
The forecast just issued shows showers and average temperatures early next week, followed by what looks like the start of a long warm spell.

Forecast rain June 2-5 (mm)

Newcastle: 25 - 57
Sydney: 19 - 53
Wollongong: 19 - 49

Totals quickly reduce as you go inland.
Looks a bit touch and go. It depends upon the exact position of the low. A small change could make a big difference.

Pretty impressive considering the weather *seems* relatively settled. I did see some pretty chunky clouds out to sea though which would be the same stuff up the CC.

Yeah Homer, was cool but pleasant this arvo here too. That southerly had a bit of bite to it.

TRY to upload it to youtube and then post the link here.
First ECL for the winter arriving. The last time l got caught in one was KIAMA. All the tents in the caravan park were ripped to shreds.
Fabulous pictures on TV of many people enjoying the snow on the alps. I can feel the pull for a snow chase.. SKI
Hope for some cheap lift tickets perhaps

Thank you for your answer Snowmaker (previous page).

----

The shower cells are multiplying on the Central Coast and lower Hunter, with falls around Newcastle totalling 30-40 mm.

There's been no rain in Sydney. It was clear and starry when I took out the rubbish just now. There are cells marching Northwards off the coast, but none look like coming ashore South of Broken Bay at this stage.

What kind of rain gauge are you saving for? You can get a decent manual gauge at Bunnings for less than $20.

There Looks like a few small orange red cells moving in from the SW just south of Sydney.

There is an active cell out to sea off Sydney. There are glimpses of structure visible through lower cloud and you can hear lightning crackling in the car radio. While the rain seems to be moving towards the NNE, the active part of the cell is nearly stationary about 25 km off Sydney's Eastern beaches.

Other than that. it's been fine and partly cloudy here, a bit sunnier this morning.

Interesting set up atm. It's very dark just off the coast but there seems to be something moving in from the north going by the radar.
It's pretty clean where the low is sitting.

Just maybe we'll get some precip soon.
