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

I think the forecast sounds more dramatic than what it actually is. All I'm really seeing is fine and sunny morning with the chance of a shower or storm. Too much wiggling in the models to be certain and Melbourne once again it's borderline

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

Not very interesting here. Just some rain and distant thunder. Most notable thing is how dark the sky is, most likely exacerbated by the smoke

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

I left work at Wantirna South at 3.30: sunny and smoke was a lot less compared to the last 2 days. Got to cranbourne West 2 minutes ago, very dark clouds, 34 degrees and thick smoke, with distant thunder. Been a while since I've seen skies like this on a very hot day. Now waiting for the rain. Seems...

Don't worry about Mornington. Seems to be edging slightly North-east towards me and you

Re: Becoming hot and windy ahead of a strong change: January 8-10

I get what qldtwister is saying. Down here it is still very much green. Ofcourse every drop is needed, especially in summer, but some areas definitely need it more than semi-suburban Cranbourne does

Re: Victoria - More heat and then some rain? - January 2nd to 5th 2020

Unfortunately it looks like we have three more days of this smoke, although it should clear up a little tomorrow and Wednesday. Thursday could be similar to today with winds coming almost directly from the east. Today's smoke is from the fires in Tasmania mainly

Re: Victoria - More heat and then some rain? - January 2nd to 5th 2020

And with heavy drizzle down here now, i don't think we'll go past our maximum of 13.4 degrees. Quite remarkable really for January.

Re: Victoria - More heat and then some rain? - January 2nd to 5th 2020

Today could easily be mistaken for a winter day in my motherland in Europe. Foggy, Cool and drizzly with the stench of wood fire smoke from people's chimneys.

Re: Victoria - More heat and then some rain? - January 2nd to 5th 2020

Smoke back with a vengeance here. Thicker than Friday. Smells a little like when you put out a fire with water. Disgusting day by the looks of it.

10mm of welcome rain for to event 🙂

Re: Victoria - More heat and then some rain? - January 2nd to 5th 2020

I think we'll struggle to get up in temperature today. Feels like a 5am sunrise here at the moment with all the smoke. Definitely getting worse and moving North as was in Wantirna South half hour ago and there was no smoke there. When i came back to cranbourne the smoke had noticebly got worse and i...

Re: VIC - Dec 23-31, 2019 Warming up with a strong front to end the Year?

More possibly disastrous news from Corryong with a major fire just on its doostep. And once the wind change goes through today and swings the wind from the south west, that will be one LARGE fire front

Re: VIC - Dec 23-31, 2019 Warming up with a strong front to end the Year?

Mallacoota shot up to 49 degrees at 8am as that fire bears down on them.

Surely that wouldn't go towards an official record?
