I went for a walk with the dog this morning and noticed that the shape of the clouds indicated some fast moving air in the upper atmosphere.

This is usually an means there has been a system come thru and at  this time of the year it would probably be snow-bearing.

I checked the BOM and sure enough there was a Severe Weather Warning -DAMAGING WINDS FOR PARTS OF THE SOUTHEAST


BOM 160512 MSLP SATPIC (Small) (Custom)

I then looked at the snow forums and Thredbos website they had had their first snowfall of the season (so I copied a few pics)

Most of it will disappear before any lifts open but to quote the weather forum mantra “ït will cool the ground” if nothing else
