Re: Last gasp Warmth and Cut-off Low to start May 2021

Now i know how western suburbs people feel when they see all the rain happening only in the eastern suburbs. 😀😀 Yep it's nice for those out east to experience our sad existence once in a while. :P What a great system for us out here in the west! This is the break we have been waiting for & will set...

Re: Series of front with possible cold outbreak: April 8-12

The filth returns today which will make the ride home later rather annoying. :x Really struggling to adapt to the change of conditions, especially after several weeks of calm conditions. Sunday was horrible for my son's first game of junior footy for the year. Poor kids couldn't even kick the ball i...

Re: Possible Autumn Break 21-25 March?

Couldn't have timed things better if I tried.
Mowed all the lawns after work late yesterday, and a handy 3-4mm of rain this morning. :D

Re: Possible Autumn Break 21-25 March?

Then a nice soaking 20-40mm for Western and NW Vic mid April would set the whole state up for a good growing season. I wouldn't mind a 50mm soaking other than this dribs & drabs garbage that we have been getting lately out here in the boredom zone. That would really set us up just nicely for the mo...

Glad not to be in low lying areas of NSW, why do Councils give the OK to build in these flood prone areas? ($$)
I guess the same reason they allow people to build in fire prone areas.

Rain starting to get heavy now, almost 10mm here so far.
How pathetic does 10mm sound considering what's happening in NSW. :P

Could you imagine what it would be like if Melbourne ever copped that amount of rain.

Re: Cool end to summer with perhaps some showers: Feb 25-

Ho hum, as expected a big fat nothing here in the western hellhole in terms of rainfall. The only moisture here is the stuff coming out of my taps. :(

Off to the island first thing tomorrow for a few days, so at least I'll be able to enjoy some warmer weather over the weekend. :D

Re: Cool end to summer with perhaps some showers: Feb 25-

Getting beyond the joke now ,it’s only about 16 degrees today in many suburbs 🥲 Tell me about it. My son had footy training tonight & you would think it was the season proper going by the cold breezy conditions. It's certainly going to be a looooooong upcoming winter out here in the uneventful west...

Re: A long warm to hot spell with the chance of storms or showers: February 16-2?

Definitely has a early winter feel to it this morning with a few chunky showers pushing through. Great timing considering I only mowed the lawns last night. :D

Have a feeling it's going to be a long winter this year after a crap summer. :(

Re: Possible Wild Weekend Feb 5-7

A grand total of just under 1mm here. By far the biggest fizzer of the summer to date for this area. :x

I guess it's back to sprinklers & manual watering for a while.

Gordon's El Cheapo weather service is cancelling the SWW for heavy rainfall west of a line between Yarrawonga and Cape Schank. BOM's multi-million dollar weather service still keeping the line west of Ballarat... Assume the big bucks are buying info El Cheapo doesn't have access to :) . Gordon's El...

EC has it going until midnight, so I’d wait a few hours before calling it. Bands can spring out of seemingly nowhere.
Unfortunately I'm located in the western hellhole, so I'm definitely calling it for this area at least.

Re: Possible Wild Weekend Feb 5-7

Looks like home is about to be hit with work not far behind. Will probably get a quick fire 5-10mm if that.
Dud of a system compared to last Friday's.

Pretty much over here, certainly won't be any storms. Been another fizzer of a season as far as storms are concerned.

Round 2 has started here, going to be a nightmare driving home tonight. Flooded roads everywhere, and this current burst of rain won't help.

Lots of place on track for their wettest one and two day spells in a long while
We have to go way back to January 15 last year when we received that 77mm dumping from a storm that went through.

Excellent result for those who have received bugger all in recent weeks. :D

Several places in the western suburbs are over 20mm now. Up to 27mm locally at Laverton & Avalon.

Re: Rain and storms with heavy falls?: January 28-31

Has just picked up a notch here, absolutely bucketing down now. This is certainly going to make the already messy situation with the roads around here even worse.
