A Chance of Snow tonight

By Clown Killer - 9 June 2009 52

The good folk at the Bureau of Meteorology have made the call:

    Scattered showers, falling as snow on the ranges and lowering to around 600 metres overnight, with the chance of some light snowfalls locally.  Fresh and gusty westerly winds.

Time perhaps to crack out the mittens, warm up the gluhwein and keep and eye out for one of natures sublimated wonders!

I remember last year the Bureau made this call and parents everywhere had to deal with disappointed kids when the next day dawned fine and sunny!

Should make the ride to work tomorrow morning amazing…oh and quick 🙂

danman, is this the tradeoff between riding a bike and saving the environment, and driving a car and killing it?

as has been mentioned before, i don’t drink. well, i had better clarify, I drink when it is really, really cold, at home. I don’t drink whilst out, as my livelihood revolves around being able to drive and visit clients. Bring on the cold weather.

I always thought it was unfair that Canberra gets so cold, but we don’t get rewarded with snow. Holy moly! Snow!

I should buys some schnapps to celebrate.

I’m at 850m so expect some splatty stuff tonight. It’s already been snowing around Orange and Oberon, flakes are blowing off the mtns into Jindy, Tumbarumba and district has snow, and the sthn highlands are somewhat hopeful. It depends on how much moisture is around.

And then Frosts for Thursday morning, I reckon. Some forecasts have frosts for wednesday, but I don’t think we’ll get frosts while the blizzardy weather is going.

mmm…. gluhwein….. we may have set fire to someone’s cook top once dousing a pile of sugar cubes (suspended about a pot of gluhwein) in vodka then setting it alight, with the intention that it should melt into the gluhwein.
