Re: Return of heat: Feb 24 to March 5

I quit after that and went to video, didnt want to push my luck. Pure fluke, after decades of trying using all sorts of kit. had the camera on aut...

I think the BOM relies too much on its super computer in melb, the one that had to be craned in through the window years ago. Putting an aircraft up and or asking those further up the Telegraph line would not be less accurate. Hundreds of aircraft are up at 30-40000 ft, watching things develop in re...

Re: VIC: First week of Feb 2019 - A break in the pattern, hot then showers/storms

Thanks Didj. It does not happen too often at Seaspray. Seaspray is in a rain shadow. I dont know why. Its either the pine plantations or the barren paddocks between them. Thousands of acres of sheep paddocks with not a tree on them, its a bloody crime. Here you can see that rain shadow in action. It...

Been watching a ripper develop to my NW (around the airport) moving this way. Heaps of flangs, thunder and huge drops now falling!! Sitting on the convergence of the E and SW winds.

EDIT: Appears to be some rotation in the scud, exciting
Airport closed, everyone holding.

Just watered the garden in anticipation of a dry night ahead. 1 to 2mm won't do much.
LOVE the reverse psychology, it works on the weather a treat.
Get out and wash the car too! :D

Just looks like a rainband now, perhaps 10 or so mm on this side of the bay?

Moisture still streaming in from the gippy coast, but a lot higher than the last few days, temps gone up a few degrees, sun trying to come out.

Re: VIC: First week of Feb 2019 - A break in the pattern, hot then showers/storms

All over 12mm. I take it. Where’s down the bay? I’m guessing Gippsland somewhere. 0.6mm here and about fifty rumbles. Haven’t had a lot of luck with storms this year with numerous storms, but getting the edge of most :( Progs still looking good. Most are going for widespread 10-40mm with locally he...
