32mm all up. Sun is shining out west thus a speccy rainbow right now.

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

Good alignment in the forecast models here for 30mm+ of soaking rain on Saturday. The crops and pasture will love it!

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

Last few days have been warm for late June. But overnight forecast models have amped up rain totals for Saturday. Could be more like 30-40mm here which would be brilliant. Looks like it'll be a while until decent snow falls in the Alps though. Needs another Sudden Stratospheric Warming Event over An...

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

Looks promising for another 20-30 mm here (very similar to the Mid-June system with a decaying cold front dragging down the tropical stuff).

GFS actually has a decent lot of cold air over us next week. EC sits us under a monster anti-cyclone, while AXS-G reckons a big ECL. All a bit whacked...

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

Still got frost in the shadows here. Beautiful sunny day.

Some convergence in forecasts for 20-25mm for the coming weekend.

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

It clouded over today and we barely struggled over 10c. It's now cleared and already 3c at 7pm. Brrrrrr...

GFS very bullish for heavy rain on the coming weekend. EC less so now.

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

-1c this morning. Coldest so far for the year.

EC still reckons 20mm+ for the last weekend of June here. Would be very nice for crops.

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

Another good frost here this morning.

Warming up next week, although good to see EC suggesting heavy rain with a cold front around June 29-30. We need every bit of it, since signs are appearing in the Indian Ocean of a strong +ve IOD developing.

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

Best frost of the year so far this morning. And a whole lot more to come in the next week by the looks of it....

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

The fog didn't lift until 11am here this morning and it's currently 10c.

Obviously a really strong inversion as temps are quite warm where the inversion is absent - ie. Already 17c in Melbourne, which is ridiculous.

But we'll struggle to get in to double figures after today, this week.

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

Colder in Sydney than in Melbourne today.

Still mid-30s near Wyndham in Northern Australia.

Weird setup ahead with an ECL and then a high centred over Tasmania all week.

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

Another 2mm overnight. Nice to see it still ticking over. Maybe another 5-10mm in the coming week as a few cold fronts whisk through.

We might struggle to get over 10c on a couple of days late next week.

25mm here for the event. MTD 45mm. Pea-souper fog this morning.

Looks cold later next week with frosty mornings in the mix.

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

5mm since 7:30am. It seems to be setting in for the day.

Some impressive rainfall totals in South Australia. Over 50mm in the Adelaide Hills and almost as much in the wheat growing areas around Lameroo etc.

Re: Sequence of fronts with possible low: June 9-15

Storms more to our SW as usual. Interesting to see Mildura at 21c at 7:00am. This is one tropical airmass. Not surprising since it was 36c in Wyndham WA yesterday (where this air is coming from).
