Mt Hotham Snow Cams

Mt Hotham today

It$apos;s a pretty wet and wild morning but conditions may improve as the day progresses. The temperature has not dropped as much as expected, so we have had a little rain and a couple of centimeters of very wet snow overnight, and the wet snow is still falling this morning. The wind is a very strong and gusty northerly which will swing more to the west and ease somewhat during the day. The forecast is calling for the temperature to drop at some point so we will hopefully see some much whiter snow falling before the day is out. The snow will be very soft and maybe a little slow in places until we see some cooling. 4 lifts are schedule to open but the wind may play havoc with the upper lifts until it eases. Rug up in your most waterproof gear for some exhilarating laps in the elements this morning.

A hot and cold heart

Alice Springs sits at the centre. Geographically, the town is roughly 1500 km equidistant from both Darwin and Adelaide. Culturally, it demarcates 'up north' from 'down south'. And meteorologically, at 23 degrees latitude, it separates the tropics from the mid-latitudes, marking the general limit for the reach of southern cold-fronts.
