I think this one counts.

Re: Vic - Humid & Potential for Rain: Feb 5-20, 2020

All this humidity has shorted my Davis thermometer. Need a dry spell to hopefully bring it back. Anyone else had this issue? Is the third time it’s happened in the past four years, and had to replace the temp/dewpoint sensor twice already. Each time has been during heavy rain and high humidity even...

I saw quite a bit of chunky Cu from Tulla but the strong cap at 3000-5000ft kept a lid on it. I feel tomorrow might be a bit different :D

A bit of Cu here too. Seems to be capped though...
Latest sounding has inversions at 3000 & 5000ft. If convection blasts through it will rise to the tropopause at around 33000ft. Unfortunately, I don't see enough forcing for that to occur :( Li -2, PW 29mm, TT 46

Re: Vic - Humid & Potential for Rain: Feb 5-12, 2020

..and just like that, it’s over. Quite incredible, not even the odd rogue flash, just the flick of the switch and she’s off. Have not seen such a sudden end to a storm like that before. Fantastic to see others get a good go of it tonight. A pleasant surprise! I saw the same. Was not me who flicked ...

When I got home yesterday, there were Currawongs wolf whistling. That usually is a sign of a significant weather change. Also, these birds hang only around here in the cooler months! I haven't heard them for months either. Very interesting.
