I feel quite inadequate reporting another 10mm to 9am :).

Pretty good result though, 41mm for the (extended) event and radar suggests it's not over yet.
LOL, find a dictionary, Inadequate is 0 last 24 hours and less than 5 for the whole event.! ;)

Re: Finally a storm outbreak first week of the New Year??

Only had a few mm's here was hoping for a bit more, but didn't have great expectations.
Doesn't really look that likely today but bom have put out a brown rot warning for expected rain???????

Looks like another ho-hum 5-10mm system for us later in the week.

GFS has yet another big tropical system for the Top-End and Eastern NSW later in December. Not much happening here except persistent South-easterlies....
Its good though they are not hot northerlies.

Re: Becoming hot then rain and storms: Dec 13-20

I think this current period of our climate for us needs to be renamed.
Something like

La Duda

Though with a bit of luck we might still get the odd trough or 2 move through for a bit of stormy weather.

Some black in the storm that went to the south of Ararat, Hamilton had 25 there is
some good rain out there. Looks like I'm in the middle for a while.

Re: Low crossing Vic 22 - 23 Nov

Storm up at Cobram, that would be right if you a decent storm that place will get one.
Some damage, lightning and grass fires. A bit of heat probably helped.
Looks like more moving into the Mallee, Wimmera, would not be wanted up there!

I like the look of the clearing out west on the satpic. Could be an afternoon breeding ground :D

Latest Melbourne sounding is out:

Don't hold your breath Strato. The monsoon has been unreliable in recent years. Very iffy what will happen.

Re: Trough and front: 10-12 November

19 mm here with just a little luck could have doubled it.
But still a nice fall, doesn't look to be much in the next 10 days though that could change.

Re: Trough and front: 10-12 November

Strato said "It's been a dry start to November here. Perhaps 15mm mid-week and I can't really see anything much beyond that." Looks about it access not so keen here, maybe 10 or 20 under a storm, drying out fast, here hay cutters are busy. Not much of a LaNina year but it did probably give a better ...

Re: Warm to hot followed by a strong cold front: Nov 2-5

Incidentally, La Nina has really got cranking in the Pacific Ocean. Some crazy cold sea surface temps emerging in the Central Pacific Ocean. It's going to be a bonkers summer I suspect. The atmosphere hasn't responded much yet, but when it does it could get very interesting... That's the big questi...

Re: another 1 or 2 lows tracking SE over Vic 22 Oct - ?

Gauge is saying 17. 5 here, pretty sure it was empty will check with others.
Access G has a big low for Monday week, should be a better rain producer for the west of the
state as it is starting back over WA, not that it is needed.
And assuming it stays in the progs.
