Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Can l 'like' all those posts. ! The 100mm forecast exciting 'Didjman' Especially for the alps. There has been a boom and bust season there this year. The spencer creek depth chart showing that nicely. If we have a metre of snow this next few weeks that spencer creek graph will even look more bizarr...

Re: Unstable with showers and storms: July 7-8

More useful rain again. Nice.

Looks much colder from July 12 onwards. Not the first year it that it took a while for the ski season to get cranking (ie. 2003, 1984, 1991 etc).

Re: Front with rain and storms: June 30-July 2

Incredible video footage of tornado taken by owner of the home that was destroyed by the Axe Creek tornado. He's one lucky man to be alive:

Re: Front with rain and storms: June 30-July 2

Update on damage at Axe Creek. Sounds like it was a tornado with a witness describing a funnel touching down before it flattened a brick veneer house to its foundations:

Re: Front with rain and storms: June 30-July 2

I wonder if this one was a tornado or microburst? Pretty significant damage about 15 km East of here. https://www.bendigoadvertiser.com.au/story/6247994/mini-tornado-destroys-family-home/ Also, lots of damage around Goornong. Local hall has lost its roof apparently. That damage is extreme. Can’t im...

Re: Front with rain and storms: June 30-July 2

Good alignment in the forecast models here for 30mm+ of soaking rain on Saturday. The crops and pasture will love it!

Re: VIC - Cold week with occasional showers: June 18-22 2019

Last few days have been warm for late June. But overnight forecast models have amped up rain totals for Saturday. Could be more like 30-40mm here which would be brilliant. Looks like it'll be a while until decent snow falls in the Alps though. Needs another Sudden Stratospheric Warming Event over An...

Re: Front with rain and storms: June 30-July 2

Looks promising for another 20-30 mm here (very similar to the Mid-June system with a decaying cold front dragging down the tropical stuff).

GFS actually has a decent lot of cold air over us next week. EC sits us under a monster anti-cyclone, while AXS-G reckons a big ECL. All a bit whacked...

Still got frost in the shadows here. Beautiful sunny day.

Some convergence in forecasts for 20-25mm for the coming weekend.

It clouded over today and we barely struggled over 10c. It's now cleared and already 3c at 7pm. Brrrrrr...

GFS very bullish for heavy rain on the coming weekend. EC less so now.

Re: VIC - Cold week with occasional showers: June 18-22 2019

-1c this morning. Coldest so far for the year.

EC still reckons 20mm+ for the last weekend of June here. Would be very nice for crops.

Re: VIC - Cold week with occasional showers: June 18-22 2019

Another good frost here this morning.

Warming up next week, although good to see EC suggesting heavy rain with a cold front around June 29-30. We need every bit of it, since signs are appearing in the Indian Ocean of a strong +ve IOD developing.
