Re: Deep low and cold outbreak: September 22-29

Amazing, now please snow in Truganina... Our elevation is far to low, wishful thinking though. In my 65 years of living in Wyndham, nearly all of which were in Werribee, it has only snowed once. That was in the late 1960s and it melted as soon as it hit the ground. Still it would be such a novelty ...

Re: Warm with a rainband: Sept 12-13

Oh yes that was me neighbour, moaning and groaning when all the rain was slipping south, we did ok in the end here in Truganina. May I say you are doing an incredible job with your site and weather station readings, a great service to our community. I used to actively follow your reports back when ...

Re: Warm with a rainband: Sept 12-13

I saw a reference to Truganina in an earlier post, so here is an update on the recent rain event. The 2 day rainfall total in Truganina ( to 9.00 am Sunday 13/9 ) was 20.4 mm. This compares well with the nearby Laverton BoM AWS with 19.4 mm, and the Melbourne Water gauge on Skeleton Creek with 21.0 ...

Thanks for setting up the comp. Now if only I'd picked GWS to beat Sydney I'd be sitting on 4 winners out of 4 :)

Re: 2013 Weather Review

G'day mate, sorry for the tardy reply as I've been away enjoying my holidays.

2013 Weather Review

The attached image provides a comparison of the weather in 2013 at Werribee and Cranbourne (Dane).

In summary, and hardly surprising, it was significantly wetter in the east and warmer in the west.
