Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

We had a drop or two of rain and about a centimetre of snow overnight. The temperature hovered around zero most of the night and dropped to minus 2 at 5.30 am. There is some cloud with a light to moderate northwesterly wind and the odd light snow flurry this morning. The snow is soft at the moment but the base may freeze if the temperature stays cold for too long.
