Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 19 July

Fair amount of drizzle here as well this morning. Bit unusual for this side of town with the west/south westerly airstream. Usually it comes from the south for us.

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

It's a real yawn fest out here in the western boredom zone compared to the other side of the bay. Absolutely nothing happening here other than more bloody wind! :x

Meanwhile the rain just keeps on falling down at the other place on the island. It's been a superb system down that way. :D

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Dry as a bone here with sunny blue skies & more wind. :roll:

Meanwhile down at the other place on the island it's been nice & wet with constant bands of showers pushing through. Approaching double figures so far down there. :D

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Yep, absolute pure filth here. :x
I'll be so relieved when this windy crap is over. Going to be a long couple of days (or week for that matter).

Re: VIC - Unstable with showers and storms: July 7-8 2019

3mm here overnight to keep things ticking along. :)

Going to be a tricky week for riding into work as it's forecast to be wet most days. I'm also picking up my brand new bike on Friday so I'm kinda hoping for at least one dry day. Either way I'll be happy regardless.

Brrrrrr, another near zero degree morning here. It's certainly challenging the joints on the bike. :snowflake:

Re: VIC - Cold week with occasional showers: June 18-22 2019

It dropped to zero out here, making it the coldest morning so far.
There was plenty of frost around for the early 5.30am walk with the dog. Ice everywhere from parked cars to footpaths. :snowflake:

Re: VIC - Cold week with occasional showers: June 18-22 2019

Lots of fog around for the chilly ride into work this morning. Temperature here dropped down to about 1.5°c, so nothing really out of the ordinary there.

Looking forward to a week of dry stable conditions. Finally get to spend some solid time on the bike. :D

Yep hard to get too exited down my neck of the woods with that Donut overhead :x
I was about to say, that is certainly one impressive looking Donut on the radar. :P

Up to 26mm here. Best result since last year, so very happy. It's certainly been a long time between drinks. :P
This should set us up nicely for the rest of winter. :D

New forecast is out, colder and wetter. Enjoy your evening, Monday morning won’t be nice.
Guess who has tomorrow off work! :D
Hopefully this time there are no dramas in the office & I can actually get out & do a snow chase.

Re: Low pressure sequence. 24–31 May

This constant drizzle has been magic. Pretty much been going for a few hours now. :D I'm just shaking my head in disbelief at the rainfall totals you guys are posting. Our totals are pretty much on par with the CBD & Laverton (a tad over 100mm for the year, 55mm for the month). Hard to believe when ...

Loving the sound of that glorious rain on the tin roof here at work. :D
It's been a long wait after all that wind. Going to be a long drive home tonight.
