Re: VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

Chilly max of 12C here with nearly 2mm of drizzly showers. Nice arvo, with warm sun and a cool breeze.

Last cool one for a long while.

Re: Victoria - Hot blast ahead of a milder change - 18th Nov to 21 Nov 2019

EC is showing an increasingly nasty day for Thursday. Gust over 100km/hr with mid to high 30s for central and eastern areas. Humidity doesn’t look too bad in the south and east, but that combination of heat and winds is unusual. Lucky most areas are still green, though won’t last long. Might not ver...

Re: Victoria - Hot blast ahead of a milder change - 18th Nov to 21 Nov 2019

The wind change is slowing down on Thursday, so now looking more like middle of the day. Makes Wednesday cooler - mostly low to mid 30s but Thursday hotter. Northwest will be very hot on Wednesday with low 40s. Nasty winds showing up on Thursday with the heat. EC is showing gusts above 100km/hr. Hum...

A cold foggy drizzly morning up here. 0.4mm in the gauge. Shame we can’t take today’s weather and shift it til Thursday morning when a damp morning will be welcome after what could well be close to a record hot night :o

Re: Victoria - Hot blast ahead of a milder change - 18th Nov to 21 Nov 2019

It is certainly cooking over in WA, my parents live in the outer NE suburbs of Perth and their temps for the last 3 days have been 39 for Thursday & Friday, and hit 42.2c today... they also had a 40c day last week.... Incredible for November. Reach 43.1C in the northern suburbs of Perth at Pearce. ...

Re: VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

13C here today with an arvo shower. Not a lot in it, just 1.2mm of rain. Saturday and Sunday look similar. Then summer starts. Hopefully, we don’t flip into the kind of weather NSW is having :o Looks like about 33C on Wednesday which is about 38C sea level equivalent :?

Re: VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

Limping towards our monthly average with another 2mm of drizzly showers overnight - 8mm to go. The cold is relentless with maximums running about 3.5C below average. The wood heater is going non-stop. Looking to the north though, I guess it's better than the alternative! Hard to believe that we're ...

Thick fog and drizzle this morning. 2.4mm in the gauge. Happy to keep getting these light falls. Looks like similar weather on and off til Sunday. Wednesday next week is looking very hot, in contrast.850Ts peaking around 26C over Victoria. Would tend to suggest around 42-44C in the Mallee and 40 to ...

Re: VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

Dipped to 4.1C here this morning. Fires on, as it feels rather wintery :D Showers looking like mainly hugging the coast today. Should spread inland a bit, but this is now starting to focus on the Otways and South Gippsland. EC still holding a big change for next week. Latest run has 42-44C for the M...

Re: VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

Wowsers - I wonder how long before the media picks up on what's ahead on 20/11 - 22/11 in NSW according to latest models - Thursday in particular looks a big step up from today which was bad enough. I’ve noticed EC has 36C here next Wednesday, or about 40C in Melbourne city. Too far out to read too...

Looks to be snowing at Lake MT ATM with a cm or two on the ground. Likely a mix of snow, hail and graupel.

Re: VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

Starting to look pretty nasty up in NSW..🙁 Can’t believe the weather contrast going on at the moment. It seems as if the whole country is on fire.. except Victoria! Terrible situation and no real signs of rain in the next 10 days :( Some areas have now had fires for more than 11 weeks. Down here we...

Re: Cool with more southwesterlies: November 12-17

Heavy drizzle and fog this morning. 4mm in the gauge, And currently falling at 5-10mm/hr. Don’t expect it to last long, but a nice way to welcome the day. We’ve just cracked 119mm MTD which puts us 0.2mm above our long term average. That means we’ve had above average in May, June, July, August, Sept...

VIC: Cool with more southwesterlies - November 12-17 2019

Looks like the negative SAM will continue to influence us with westerlies more typical of winter, bringing showers in the south and cool conditions. The airmass will get colder enough for more snow in the alps, though looks lighter than last week.

Not much in the north, but perhaps the odd shower.

Re: Becoming cold, wet and windy with a series of fronts: November 6-11

First reasonably good weather day in Tassie for a while today. The west has copped heaps of rain/snow this week. Looking further north I notice there has been focus on next Tuesday for the QLD/NSW bushfires with deteriorating conditions. However if I'm reading ACCESS G correctly next Sunday to the ...

Re: Becoming cold, wet and windy with a series of fronts: November 6-11

Just shy of 7mm in the gauge this morning. Currently thick fog and light drizzle. Might yet get a mm or two more. The garden is sodden 52mm for the event and 115mm in the past 8 days (just 2mm to our monthly average). Never one to complain about rain as I know at this time of year it could be 40C an...

Cold rainy day in the Nongs with another 4mm or there abouts. Foggy with intermittent showers ATM. An old fashion winters day :D Spent most the day in the Yarra Valley and made it up to Lake Mountain. Fantastic cover - was about 30cm deep, with some drifts over 50cm above 1400m. Snow settled to abou...
