Re: Trough with low to our north: 27-31 October.

A remarkable failure in the weather forecast models today. Most of them had huge rainfall totals up around Robinvale and Mildura for today which would've been destructive to crops.

And thankfully they only got a few mm.

Re: Trough with low to our north: 27-31 October.

Just getting a band of light rain coming through from the North-east. Not really anything in it.

My favourite record is the "not hitting 30" record.

2001 was the year, and didn't happen until December 21 from memory
It was actually 29th December that year!
And the summer of 2001-2002 was rather non-existent as well. Very few days above 30c, and lots under 22c.

Fairly sure we’ve had several days over 20c already :)
Yep. Including a 29c on Oct 4.

The gold standard for a cold start to Spring was 1992. Didn't hit 20c until Oct 13 that year!

I don't think we will get much this week. Mildura might though....

A 1mm overnight. But I'm not emptying gauge as it's occupied by a great big huntsmen :spider:

Probably not much in the coming week.

The crops are in the main are looking sensational around here.

70mm MTD here. Has anyone else noticed we've been having weekly rain events? Usually a Friday-Saturday...

Intriguingly, the creek in our gully is just a small trickle.

10mm in the end. Good thing too is a cold drying breeze over the next few days which will prevent some issues with crops.

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

35mm in both gauges with some more still to come. Can I be a social media lounge expert and say BOM you under did it? As a old timer weather watcher rather than expert I have adopted the "it is not over till the last drop falls" hence last night when it looked like under producing but dawn showed i...

5mm in gauge. Maybe just a couple more mm with back edge of front.

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

Managed a couple of mm.

A slow moving blob is up near Swan Hill. But I suspect the dry air in the incoming cold front will push it East soon or obliterate it. Or maybe trigger something?

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

A fast fading rainband out West, a storm in Mildura, and that's about it.

Most of the action is over the border.

Still on zero mm. BOM are getting a belting on social media. But it's a tricky and evasive type of system.

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

A big hole in the cloudband now North of Mildura. That's the split so GFS is correct and we might just get a mm or two. Goodnight!

AXS-G is suggesting 20mm here in early hours of tomorrow morning until 9am. Nothing much expected before midnight. Intriguing.

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

What the hell happened in 24hrs to go from 20-40mm and heavy rain to under 5mm ? Doesn't make sense. BOM still sticking with their SWW for heavy rain for Bendigo as of a few minutes ago; map virtually unchanged since the 10.38am one. http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDV21037.shtml Weird. 00z EC has a...

Only 1mm in Mildura so far. There's nothing in it. As weak as American beer.

What the hell happened in 24hrs to go from 20-40mm and heavy rain to under 5mm ? Doesn't make sense. Computational fluid dynamics is difficult when it comes to precipitation. Especially when there are so many variables and a dependency on data that has been missing this year (due to fewer airliners).
