Victoria and Tasmania has had its first cold spell 19th Feb 2014 as we approach autumn in 2 weeks
it is not unusual to see the first glimpses of autumn in the last weeks of Feb. and a mixture of warm and cold in March

Ballarat made a cold minimum of 7.2 deg C last night 20th feb 2014
A tight rotating low pressure cell with some nice input from the Antartic air provided some low temperatures

Mt Buller had 26mm of rain but temps fell to 0.1 deg c during the night after the rain
Max temp around 4.8 deg c today

No snow evident on the mt buller webcams

THe low pressure cell doesn’t look as though it was attached to the westerly belt. THe cold loks as though it came from the southern ocean . The Antarctic has record sea ice extent, so plenty of cold near the polar region.
Wondering if this year that cold will wander across the Australian mainland?
