Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 19 July

3mm here today and a maximum of 10.8c. The east is clearly doing very well this month, which is great. Not quite so well here - we’re getting regular rain but still tracking a bit below average. Currently 27mm MTD. It’s not really an issue given that May and June were well above average, so the soil...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 19 July

Soil is close to saturation here as well, with standing water appearing in spots after a heavy shower. Despite that, we’re tracking a little poorly so far this month given the less than favourable synoptic setup for these parts, although still a couple of weeks to go. 11c max today, which is slightl...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Max of 10c here today. Just 0.6mm with a couple of showers. 21mm for the event so far, which is not too bad considering it was always going to favour areas further east. Looks like the eastern suburbs are in for quite a wet night judging by the radar.

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Cold one today - max of 8c during a period of sunshine but most of the day was between 4c and 6c. Windchill got down to -1c. Very brisk outside! Didn’t amount to a lot of rain, only 3mm, as showers were mostly brief, but occasionally heavy with sleet and small hail.

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Had a good sleet shower a short time ago. Currently 4.8c. Wind has calmed down a bit this afternoon. It was quite windy overnight and this morning, with gusts up around 50km/h.

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

14mm here. Wild night - raging wind, driving rain, and the odd bit of thunder and lightning. Currently 6c with the main rainband now behind us.

Re: VIC - Unstable with showers and storms: July 7-8 2019

Very mild here the past couple of days - 14.9c and 14.8c. Currently 11.4c. Difficult to judge how we'll go with rain later today, given the usual challenges in these setups here, although this one is more northerly than northwesterly, so hopefully a couple of mm.

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

Finished the month here with 128mm. We've had 229mm since the start of May, although we're still about 30mm behind on the YTD average. 7c, sunny and calm here today, a complete reversal to yesterday's weather!

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

Rain has stopped here, and looks to be about it for now. Great to see so many big totals reported. We finished up with 31.6mm. So Access-C was pretty spot on for us in the end. That takes us up to 128mm MTD, and well above average. Temp has dropped - currently 7.3c.

Wild, wintry day here. The rain has become persistent and heavier, with gusty winds. Currently 8mm and 11c.

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

5mm here so far, with rain becoming patchy as it moves to the south side of the central ranges. It was a rather windy night, which woke me up a few times. Still gusting around 30 to 40km/h.

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

Looks like north of the divide could do very well over the 24 hours. I’m not sure we’ll do quite as well as Access-C suggests for here; we usually struggle in these NW setups, especially if it’s quite windy as well. Time will tell! We’re currently on 96mm MTD, so already above average but a bit of f...

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

Clearly been a frosty couple of days Macedonian. Suspect that the ground temp has kept low, especially with the sun being weak this time of year. Down to 3.5c here overnight, so not nearly as cold as it was at lower altitudes. Currently 7.7c and sunny.

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

Got down to -0.4c here and frosty. It actually dropped to 1.2c around 8pm with a light frost, climbed back up to 4.7c by midnight, then dropped again during the night.

Looking like quite a cold night on the way. Hardly a breath of wind and clear skies. It’s already 2.7c here.

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

3mm here yesterday and a further 4mm today. MTD is just over 95mm. Not especially wet this week, but it has been nice having regular rain for several days in a row. We’ve also had 4 days in a row of maximum temps below 10c, with the last 3 days maxing out between 7c and 9c. That of course changes af...
