Re: Becoming cold, wet and windy with a series of fronts: November 6-11

Been nothing but cloudy, windy, dribs & drabs crap here today.
We had fun yesterday with all the hail & shower activity so can't really complain too much. :)

Re: Vic Trough/Front Nov 2-4 2019

Looks like I've missing most of the action while I'm down here on the island. Saw that squall line back in the west on the radar while walking the dog. :o

Meanwhile down here we have virtually had dribs & drabs.

Absolute disgusting pure waste of time filthy windy crap (think I covered it all) out there today. :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: :cussing: About the only thing this garbage today will achieve is to further dry out the landscape, stress the plants & potentially damage buildings.

Re: VIC - Becoming hot with a sharp cool change: October 22-27 2019

Don't think this weather knows what it wants to do today. Currently we have mainly blue skies, sun, a few clouds, and drops are falling. :?

Re: VIC - Becoming hot with a sharp cool change: October 22-27 2019

Escaped the first drops of rain just before it started on the bike this morning. Not really expecting much out this way, 1mm if that.

Re: VIC - Becoming hot with a sharp cool change: October 22-27 2019

Absolute cracker of a day for the bike yesterday, and again this morning. Unfortunately that will change for the ride home as I push into a hot dry windy northerly. :x The landscape isn't too bad around here, although it's definitely drying out. I have plenty of water in the tank atm so my gardens s...

Wow, check out that radar. There is more spots on it than a Dalmatian, showers everywhere.
Love it when things go more southerly. :D

Re: VIC - Strong front: October 7-9 2019

Another BOM blunder with their forecast. Either that or lazy forecasting once again.

Melbourne area
Partly cloudy with a very high (90%) chance of showers early this morning

One giant fizzer here as expected, absolutely nothing in the gauge. :(

Let the watering season begin.

Re: VIC - Strong front and trough - Sept 19-22 2019

A cool bright sunny morning here with hardly any wind. Would of been a perfect day on the bike, however need the car as I have to travel into the city later to collect GF tickets. :D

Looks like the annual watering season will soon kick off as there is nothing at all in the outlook rain wise. :(

Re: Strong front and trough Sept 19-22

Crap morning here thanks to this disgusting windy filth. :cussing:
Had hardly any sleep last night due to a constant rattling outdoor blind, so I'm particularly grumpy this morning.

Hopefully we pick-up a few mm tomorrow to replenish the moisture this wind has taken out of the soils.

Not a single drop here, just more pointless wind. :roll:

Focus now turns to the upcoming event for later Sunday/Monday.

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

That bloody wind has been horrible here as well Gordon. Really over it. :x

Been a wet 24 hours here with constant showers pushing through this morning. Had to navigate two of them while walking the dog.

Will be happy to start seeing some warmer conditions.

Re: Clipper system: August 24-25

Looks like the mowers will be out in force on Saturday with the slightly warmer conditions forecast. I've even bought myself a new one for the occasion. ;)

Bright blue sunny skies here. I even hit the bike for the trip into work. That's how much confidence I have of it raining today. :roll:

Re: Vic - Antarctic cold wave 7 - 16 Aug 2019

Finally got around to posting our total for the event. 34mm recorded which is a pretty good result. The clay soils are absolutely saturated around here. Definitely won't be able to take much more. Would of been nice to see something other than just rain, but I guess that's pretty much to be expected...

Wonderful pictures everyone, congratulations to all you snow bunnies up in the hills & high country. :D As for the rest of us, well it's just been another stock standard winter event.

My brother has just reported snow at Clonbinane.
Kewl. Is he up in the hills? It would be snowing on Mt Disappointment
He actually lives in Wandong & went for a stroll up the road to Clonbinane. I'm not exactly sure whereabouts in Clonbinane they are.

The shower over us atm has large drops. which looking at the clouds, would seem to be from melting snow on the way down.
