Nice to see some superb scenery when one is not able to attend from various parts of the state. As James suggested, a great year for the central ranges as well as the NW slopes for snow.

Certinaly another great snow event from this weather system, particularly on the Central Tablelands. Beautiful photos of the snow there James.

I've uploaded all the pics I took of the snow further north, the majority of which were taken in and very close to Ben Lomond.

Given this event occurred during June, my rainfall statistics would be useful for this period:

DateRainfall
Sunday, 24 June 2007R 0.2
Monday, 25 June 20073.8
Tuesday, 26 June 20076.2
Wednesday, 27 June 2007    5.2
Thursday, 28 June 20071.4
Friday, 29 June 20071.0

Total for the month of June was 270.6mm incredible considering the typical avergae monthly rainfall during the winter months and also considering that it is the wettest months for several years. One can say with confidence, the drought is over in this part of the world.

I stayed in the cabins on Mt Kaputar last Wednesday night and left Thursday morning driving thru 8-10cm of fresh snow.   I was first down the mountain that day and cut fresh tracks all the way.  Kaputar is a beautiful place and worth a visit.

I have lots of good pics but am new to this and would need someone to point me in the right direction to get them on here if anyone is interested.

Private message has been sent with instructions. Basically, when replying, go to Additional Options... at the bottom of the message and then browse to choose and add pictures.

I visited Kaputar in June 2004 and it happened to be a very clear but cold day. It is an awesome place - feels so isolated, with the most amazing views of the NSW plains anywhere. You can see the curvature of the earth along the horizon. Certainly one of those places very few people in coastal communities would be aware even exists.

Back on topic - I've uploaded an interactive satpic loop of the event:

Michael et al,

What a fantastic satellite image animation beginning from the mass transport and collection of cloud material in south east Queensland to the awesome circulation hooking through the Gippsland region into south east New South Wales and then the second vortex in the Tasman. Normally I do not get excited with east coast lows as such but this one did persist more than the one day wonders.
