Re: Low crossing Vic 22 - 23 Nov

Both EC and ACCESS are keen for more storms overnight and I think the radar looks quite good with development. Stuff building to the west as you mentioned HB. Have not looked at the uppers recently but recall a small upper trough moving through Vic sometime today, would help with development/lift.

Re: Cold outbreak 3 August - ?

Decent snow shower in Wallan too, my cousin told me. A lot of facebook videos popping up. How come we had similar conditions at 10:30am, yet it didn't snow in parts of Melbourne? I understand elevation probably has a lot to do, but temps were definitely okay for it (2 degrees at Laverton, Geelong, ...

8c here and 2-3 in Melbourne! How does that work at 330m?
You'll find the temperature will drop a tonne under a shower. Colder air from aloft will be entrained in the precip, also the air will cool as drops evaporate in an unsaturated environment where you are.

Re: Cold outbreak 3 August - ?

Pretty sure I've had a bit of graupel! Soft splattering hail. Not used to it though so cannot confirm.

Re: Cold outbreak 3 August - ?

2.2c at Laverton! That's incredible for sea level. Had a burst of hail with the arrival of the shower and now very cold.

Re: 1-7 March: Cold front then ex TC or trough?

Yes will believe it when I see it but Boms latest forecast hasn’t got all the latest model runs at 00z. Heaviest falls still projected in the NE.

Re: 1-7 March: Cold front then ex TC or trough?

Models agreeing on big falls in NE Victoria around 100mm. Gfs brings the heaviest falls a big further west than others into North Central and more rain in Melbourne. Models have the heaviest rain in Melbourne starting early hours - morning Thursday where we should hopefully see 20mm (gfs has 40-50mm).

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-26th Jan 2020

Never seen this before - where it’s still raining dirt? After a solid few hours of rain the street gutters are totally brown and flowing fast. You’d think it was just prefrontal but it’s still so muddy everywhere? Crazy

Under the rain train N of the city, nice thick rain smashing down. Haven't checked the gauge but would say around 15mm.

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-23rd Jan 2020

Surely that storm W of Ballarat has dumped 50mm. Could be much higher TBH. ACCESS R looking good for Melbourne metro rainfall tomorrow.

Re: Victoria - Warm then more rain - 13th-20th Jan 2020

Radar filling in nicely around the west. Lightning and thunder but no rain yet. Slight green tinge to my SW (hail?) but could be wrong. Ready to unleash rain here 😀
