Re: Vic - Trough and Rainband: Sept 16-17 2019

Very healthy 33mm in the gauge here, 36mm for the event. You must have passed 100mm mtd HB? Pretty good going for just past halfway :). Yep, about 105mm. Will add up tonight to confirm. Our average is about 120mm for September, so not far off that. I've not seen weather like this for years. We are ...

Re: Vic - Trough and Rainband: Sept 16-17 2019

Over 20mm down bottom of hill, Seems over 30mm on top of my hill. Must get WS.. No complaints on the wetness side. Besides that the explosions early evening weren't thunder. Presuming twits mixing chemicals. ? Oh. We heard a bang. Maybe that was it :o Odd noise. Very healthy 33mm in the gauge here,...

Re: Vic - Trough and Rainband: Sept 16-17 2019

Adding up nicely here. Up to 13mm for today now. These nwly unstable set ups usually deliver well for us in the southern Dandenongs.

Rain out west continues to thicken up so plenty more to come.

Re: Vic - Trough and Rainband: Sept 16-17 2019

Wierd day here with rain, sun, rain, sun and now heavy rain. Clocked up 8mm so far. Quite mild when the sun was out, but chilly when it clouded over. Looks like a wet night. Should get at least 20mm more if the progs are correct :D Throwing it down here all arvo. Sick of it. Bring on the warmth. 22C...

Re: Vic - Trough and Rainband: Sept 16-17 2019

Woken by heavy rain about 5am. About 3mm in the gauge. Cleared now, but convection bubbling away to our west.

A mild, quite humid and unstable day ahead. Might get a rumble, ahead of rain spreading north tonight. Still looks promising - could well see 20-30mm by this time tomorrow :D

Re: Vic - Trough and Rainband: Sept 16-17 2019

System for Sunday seems to be holding which is good :) Trough approaching southwest Victoria later today with the associated upper trough amplifying. This system has tapped a good feed of tropical moisture from way back in the mid Indian Ocean so is unusual by recent standards in having some proper ...

Re: Vic - Trough and Rainband: Sept 16-17 2019

Squeezed out 1mm today. Foggy this evening, but overwise a pretty uneventful one. Could see the presence of the IOD with this one with dry prefrontal. Weekend looking promising through the area of moderate rain is pretty tightly bounded to the north, so could easily see a scenario where it slips jus...

Re: Vic - Trough and Rainband: Sept 16-17 2019

Some early indications of an embedded trough and rainband with the cold front next week. It could deliver quite good rain along the Great Divide and Central areas. Looks promising for us, but more heat and wind up north. New thread time, nearly? Bit of a front tomorrow, but not much in it. Perhaps ...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

A photo of the fog. Quite eerie and very very thick. Camera doesn’t quite get the perspective at times. Out MTD is about 75mm so a great start to the new month locally :) https://scontent.fmel7-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/69947439_10158106938554252_2358713468216934400_n.jpg?_nc_cat=101&_nc_eui2=AeHVWx1...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

2mm more overnight. Has been quite heavy at times despite the lack of rain on the radar. Also very very thick fog. Viz down to about 50m. Bit of a contrast from Perth we’re I have been for a few days where yesterday saw a record early season heatwave and a max of 33C. Farmers there are on a knife ed...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Cold wet and windy night in the Nongs. Min of 2C with a further 10mm in the gauge :D Bit of icy stuff lying in the garden this morning, which looks to be a mix of graupel and hail. Probably not quite cold enough for snow, but could have been some flurries in the wee hours :D Clearing now. Progs are ...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Nice winter, err spring, day. 14mm for us. Seems that the official Ferny Creek AWS is under reading a bit ATM, or perhaps we are just getting lucky at our place. MTD is about 60mm now. Ticking along nicely. Another 12-18 hours of cold and showery conditions. Should see the odd flurry down to about 7...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Cold wet one in FC today. Max of just 7C with 5mm of precip (since I emptied the gauge about 8am). MTD is a healthy 45mm for us now. On track for a decent September at this rate which would be great if it happens :D Cracker of a front for mid arvo tomorrow. Showers becoming widespread with local hai...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Another mm overnight so 20mm for this part of the event. Tis a bit westerly for us atm. Good to see East Gippsland getting some overnight. Record drought out there atm :? Video and photos from northern NSW near the front. Hopefully they works?? Today’s looks like mainly a Gippsland day. Strong front...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Reports filtering in of a tornado at Peechelba. You can see the radar signature in the start of the loop. The cell below. It was a strong left mover. https://scontent.fmel7-1.fna.fbcdn.net/v/t1.0-9/69553630_10158096661174252_4274900031972048896_n.jpg?_nc_cat=111&_nc_eui2=AeEWl_t2lcdbKT9vEBc-Q-ICaID3...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Created an animation of the wind doppler for the NE Vic cell. Anyone think it was a tornado? Looked strongest near Springhurst. Sure had the Emergency Vic people excited. Got a warning similar to a bushfire warning. First was an advice message then it upgraded to an emergency message - that's one b...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Woken by heavy rain here, though looks pretty short lived. 8mm in the gauge which is almost exactly what EC had for us last night :D MTD up to 30mm, so tracking ok. The low to our southwest is now weakening and the new one will develop near Flinders Island. We are inbetween these systems and as the ...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Some impressive cells moving across Western Vic ATM (as picked by GFS :) ). Had a couple of lighter showers at home with about 0.2mm so far. Cracking low developing tomorrow, so going to be a wild, wet and windy one. Not a lot of moisture on the northern side so rainfall will thin out as you go nort...

Re: Victoria - Troughs and possible low - September 1-7 2019

Starting to look like we may see some decent convection this arvo through west and central areas. LI on the last GFS drop to -2 to -3. This model has a decent area of heavy showers and storms spreading east from early/mid arvo. First shower just popped up on the central ranges. Still on track for a ...
