More snow overnight and it's still snowing.
Mt Roland had a dusting of white this morning.
The Dove Lake car park was open to vehicles on Sunday.

A number of cold fronts crossed the state overnight bringing good snow falls from the West Coast through to Ben Lomond.
A Dove Lake web cam photo will follow once the ice is gone from the lens.

Given that I've just had a snow shower here at home, we can be fairly sure there's plenty of white stuff being dumped on the higher country.

A dusting of snow on the mountain this morning,
The snow settled to below the face track level.

Sunshine and rain during the day has dissipated the snow.

Good to hear, we're heading down to Tassie on Tuesday to escape summer, so am pleased to hear there is snow even though I'm sure it'll have melted by then.

Snow settled on the higher peaks overnight.
Peaks around Lake St Clair looked good in white when visible around midday.
It was snowing as I was driving through Breona on the way home this afternoon.
