TREND: IMPROVING / ONGOING / DETERIORATING
It has been snowing pretty constantly since dawn. We have a pretty nice cohesive bed surface on leewards aspects in the form of some pre-frontal moisture mixed with this early fresh deposition. This is on a 3cm freeze crust that was more 'polystyrene' than shield ice. All in all, for now... things are looking. Still very hard mix of rime, sastrugi and wind crust on north and west aspects. In the last 24hrs we have run field observations across Bogong, Hotham (Dargo & Mt Loch) and Buffalo. The consistency of profile and surface conditions by altitude in this region is very strong at the moment.
OUTLOOK: Pretty classic mid winter conditions now, with a steady conveyor from the NORTH AND WEST delivering more FAT COLD fronts. Looks to continue for the period now until out next update.
