Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 19 July

Foggy and drizzly this morning. Just 0.4mm overnight.

Turned mild here at 7C. We’ve got warm air advection for the next two days (so tending drizzly), before a couple of sneaky fronts to close out the sequence. Could well get another 20mm before it is done here.

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 19 July

Mild (for a winter swly) foggy and drizzly day up here. Just shy of 3mm more in the gauge. Damp weather continuing still late on Thursday into early Friday. We could make our monthly average by the end of the week at this rate :D If we pass average, that would make 3 months in a row (which doesn’t h...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Nastynight in the Dandenongs with fog, heavy drizzle and occasional downpours of rain and hail and some hefty wind gusts (a few big branches down in the garden, one of which just missed the chook shed by about 30 cm :o ) Just less than 30mm in the gauge :D MTD is approaching 80mm. Could crack averag...

:wave: Sticking my nose back in here after a very long, and busy, time. :wave: Loving the fronts! Small hail and thunder yesterday, max temp of 10.2C, only 3.2mm. Welcome back :) Perfect winter day in the Dandenongs. Fog and non-stop drizzle, with occasional bursts of heavier rain. 10mm so far :D M...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 Jul

Fine cold night here, but that’s about to change with a front coming up from the southwest. This is one of those sliding fronts (comes up then tends to slide along its axis). Expecting some heavy falls through the Yarra Ranges to South Gippsland. EC has about 20mm here next 24 hours, and spot falls ...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Just got back from a snow chase up to Mt Donna Buang. Snowing heavily up there, blizzard like. Snowing down to the turn off road to the summit. I was in a 4x4 so I was able to get to the top car park - but they closed the last bit of road to the summit. Put the 4X4 in snow mode and it did not slip ...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Getting showers here now. Alternating between rain, sleet, graupel and snow. Temperature of 3C so about 0.5C too warm for propr snow. Next shower might chill it a bit more :?:

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

3C here ATM and edging down. About 0.5C too warm for snow currently. Had no more in the gauge overnight (so 6mm past 24 hours), but did get a couple of brief bursts of graupel. Incoming trough should be with us within the next hour. Is very well timed for snow, just comes down to a degree or so of t...

Just started to snow. 1.2C
Yay :)

Down to 4C here. Getting spitty showers. Thinking we will dip to around 2C overnight looking at the 850Ts. Synoptics look quite good for snow, just comes down to a degree or so at this point for the Dandenongs.

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Cold air moving in here now with temperature down to 5C. Got a sharp shower with the leading edge of the cold air with a flurry of small hail. Had 6mm here so far today, so steadily adding up. Looks like a cold, windy night with the odd shower. Next trough wips through tomorrow morning with showers ...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

The sky/clouds have that snowy look here today, whereas yesterday it was just that leaden, wintry wet look. Fingers crossed. Not overly cold though. 6.5C at home now. Is mild here ATM. Been hovering around 9C with drizzly rain, and the odd heavier burst. Had some small hail just before. 5mm in the ...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Nothing more overnight (so 3mm for the 24 hours, plus 7mm the 24 hours before that) but has set in again since about 8am. About 1.5mm so far this morning. Quite mild ATM with a temperature of about 8C. Colder air will start to move in from early arvo. 850Ts look like dropping a little below -4C so m...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Welcome chasersaddict! More showers moving through, things are ticking over. Access C projecting 20 to 30mm in the next 24 hours locally and big precip totals in the NE ranges. Could be an extra 2 foot of snow for places like Hotham and Falls creek from now to Sunday. Chilly damp day in the Dandeno...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Handy 7mm here overnight. Cold, dry and windy atm, but showers will develop as the day goes on. It’s a mainly westerly day so will focus on the coast and ranges. Cold uppers so rumbles and small hail a chance. We’ve got strong warm air advection for tomorrow which will spread drizzly rain (one might...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Wild evening up here with gusts roaring through the trees. Rain inbound, and anticipating around 10mm overnight. Wind is going to be the real feature of this one with gales on the coast and ranges each of the next four days. There is going to be some big waves (likely over 10m on the west coast) and...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 16 July

Surprised to score 4mm in FC today. Showers were heavy and had a spring storm feel to them. MTD nearly up to 20mm so looking decidedly better than a couple of days back. EC wiggled backwards on rain totals, but looks colder for the weekend. Is getting close to the numbers that usually see snow in th...

Re: Vic: Fronts and troughs 9 - 13 July

Might want to extend those dates as EC now has this sequence going well into next week :D Quite the frontal barrage. Will add up substantially in the usual wet spots, and spread decent falls elsewhere. Ten days total top 100mm in South Gippsland, Otways, and northeast on the EC, and locally approach...

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

Another 0.2mm today with a max of 10.8C. Another mild one for winter :?

Nice burst of more wintery weather coming. Should give July’s rainfall total a good bump, give the snowfields a base after a lean few weeks.

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

Heavy showers here overnight, and now a foggy and mild 9C. Feels more like spring ATM. Did not hear any thunder but was pretty tired so perhaps slept through it :D

Couple of showers to come. Next system inbound for Wednesday.

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

Wierd day for winter with a mild oddly humid arvo. Looked like it was gonna rain properly but slipped south. Just 0.4mm in the gauge. Upper trough still sits to our west, so should be some more overnight. Good burst if westerly flow form late Tuesday which will add up. Flow altenterates between warm...
