Re: VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

That heat up north is relentless and extreme. 47.1C in northwest WA today which is just 0.2C short of an early season record. Perth headed for four days above 35C. It’s wierd (but nice) that we are in a little green and cool bubble atm, in a continent headed for one of its hottest driest years on r...

Re: VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

Limping towards our monthly average with another 2mm of drizzly showers overnight - 8mm to go. The cold is relentless with maximums running about 3.5C below average. The wood heater is going non-stop. Looking to the north though, I guess it's better than the alternative! Hard to believe that we're l...

Re: Becoming cold, wet and windy with a series of fronts: November 6-11

Worth a look at the Lake Mountain snow cam this morning https://lakemountainresort.panomax.com/ - impressive November cover for 1300m - certainly skiable!

Re: Becoming cold, wet and windy with a series of fronts: November 6-11

Another 4.5mm in the gauge, 23mm for the event and 65mm mtd.

Lots of hail yesterday and down to about 2C overnight, but if any actual snow fell (which I doubt) I slept through it :).

Very good to see balance being restored in the upper Yarra/ Dandenongs going into summer.

18.5mm here, 60.5mm mtd. November average 80.9mm so we're well on the way.

Btw I'm just back from the Grampians where Mt William has had nearly 50mm for the dates!

Good cover of snow on Buller cams this morning. It'll be interesting to see the accumulation by Sunday.

Finished up with 42mm here - about double what I was expecting. Cold 2C here this morning but the sun is out.

Yes same here, another 7mm takes us to 36mm and raining again now! I expected maybe 20mm for these dates so well ahead.

Re: Vic Trough/Front Nov 2-4 2019

That is a great fall for Bendigo, and there should be a bit more to come.

Got lucky here with a string of cells overnight; bursts of very heavy rain. Another 13mm so 29mm for the event and the atmosphere still has that mild humid feel.

Re: Vic Trough/Front Nov 2-4 2019

Great results so far everyone; particularly like your 20mm Strato!

Thinking we night scrape to 25mm today, but it now looks like more showers on and off all week so could end up with very handy totals.

Re: Vic Trough/Front Nov 2-4 2019

Up to 20mm now and still coming.

The plants were already going berserk with the warmth of the last few days; it's going to be like the Amazon after this!

Re: Vic Trough/Front Nov 2-3 2019

This morning's WATL forecast rainfall for 2-5/11 puts Wodonga almost bang in the centre of the '25-50mm' blob, so you might do alright! At this early stage, looks like we're right on the edge of the decent rain; hoping we won't be watching it form up just to the east, which can be a bit of a theme i...

Re: VIC - Becoming hot with a sharp cool change: October 22-27 2019

So much for missing the wind! Absolutely howling here now, along with sideways drizzle and 8C. Another 4.5mm in the gauge though, so that's handy. Latest short-term outlook by BOM is for mostly average to above average rain for Vic thanks to SAM... not that I would exactly bet my house on these outl...

Re: VIC - Becoming hot with a sharp cool change: October 22-27 2019

Not a bad night here - we somehow seemed to miss the strong winds (so far?) which is very out of character for the last few months!

Currently 12C with dust-settling shower earlier. Got to 27C yesterday.

Would you believe that it just started snowing here?
I saw that the bom said snow to 900m but didnt give it much credence.
I would believe - quite sleety here in the middle of the coldest coldies. Another 4mm so 24mm for the dates. Handy!

Re: Low then cold fronts 16-20 October

3mm overnight so an even 20mm for the event, which is more than I was expecting.

A bit over the wind though! A neighbour and I were discussing that this spring has been one of the worst we can recall for wind (though we have absolutely no stats to back that up!)

Re: Low then cold fronts 16-20 October

Hope there's no crop damage from the frost - a cold 3C here but can't see any frost in the valleys; too much breeze probably.

Another 5mm here yesterday so 17mm so far for the dates.
