Re: Vic: Spring Warmth and Strong Cold Front Sept 8-11

Nah....that's what is typical for us out here in the Wimmera ;) We really need this one out here. Crops are looking fantastic but need a good drink to keep them rolling along. Everyone has been pretty nervous because September and October have been so unreliable for the last decade. This will be one...

Re: Hot and thundery - Tropical moisture feed - Jan 4 to 14

Has eased off a bit out here now ......but after 45mm we aren't complaining ;)
We've had just under 100 mm since Wednesday so we'd call that a MAJOR event for us.......time to get the tractors out.......haha....... ;)

Re: Mild, windy and showers - May 19 - 28

18mm for us .....on top of the 12mm on Saturday from that storm and 4mm before that it is quite wet.
We aren't quite finished cropping.....nearly.....but will have to wait couple days for things to dry out a bit.....good reason to have to stop.

Re: Cold front & trough April 29-30

26mm all up for us.....just magnificent......and maybe a top up on Friday. Norwegians have upgraded for us to 16mm after being not very interested the last few days.......that would make it very wet.....not that we would be complianing. A nice early cropping will be very appreciated especially if th...

Re: Vic: Low pressure - showers/rain/storms - 8-13 April 201

31mm all up for us which was a great result.......the latter part went just north of us but happy with our lot...a nice early break for a change ........make the weeds grow, get a nice early kill then away we go.

Re: Vic: Low pressure - showers/rain/storms - 8-13 April 201

Hoping for some decent rain in the Wimmera but not confident after all the events so far going north of us, or falling away south. We need some rain to top up the resevoirs and lakes after our brilliant minds at our local water board let a lot of water go to waste out to sea, and to lake hindmarsh ...

Re: Vic: Low pressure - showers/rain/storms - 8-13 April 201

Models have been pretty consistent the last 5 days or so for 30-40mm for us out here. That would be fabulous.....been a while since we had a good early break like that BUT will believe it when we see it I think ;)

6mm for us out here....we were just a bit too far south....nearly but not quite ;) Long hot dry summers is the norm for us.....the country/vegetation is suited to such. Unless we get 2 inches or more we don't really want rain this time of the year.....just makes the weeds grow.....have to spend more...

Re: Cooler & Wetter 13 Feb >

Never have i seen 100% chance of rain for us but that is what weatherzone have....for now anyway.....100% 10-20mm for Friday 80% 10-20mm for Thursday.....will be good for the garden and tanks and make a welcome relief from day after day of heat.
