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

Still on track for around 25mm tomorrow which will be brilliant for the winter crops. Then it looks like cool temps in a Westerly/Southwesterly regime typical of this time of year after tomorrow. Looks like it should be cool, but the uppers stay rather mild. Could change, but GFS/EC has these sitti...

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

This kind of weather isn't all that unusual for June. It happened in 1995 when we had a week of subtropical Northerlies and mild temps. 100mm in one week back then which I doubt we'll repeat this week. Perhaps 30-40mm instead.

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

EC, Access G and CMC now projecting 80 to 100mm in the latest 10 day outlook for here :) Locally, this year is starting to look like 1908 which was a swinging positive IOD and neutral El Nino. Only 51mm fell in the first 4 months in 1908 and then nearly 500mm fell in the next 6 months with the trad...

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

If the latest EC is any indication, the rivers and creeks should finally get running by this time next week. 55mm in the next 7 days is promising...

Re: Strong front and possible low: June 2-6

A cold and blustery 11c for a max today. That Southerly cuts right through you.

Back to subtropical weather on the weekend, with early indications of 25mm+ of rain. Sweet.

Re: Strong front and possible low: June 2-6

It certainly was a wet day, some pws locally recording 90-100mm... my wheelbarrow is almost full with water, just incredible for June. The long term June average (1880-1962, station closed in 1962) is 38.2mm and the highest daily total in that time is 48.3mm, so quite unusual. One possible similar ...

Re: Strong front and possible low: June 2-6

We managed to get under a convergence line last night and got 14mm. Just a few km away only 5mm.

Looks like a bit more coming.

Decent upgrade in EC tonight. There could be 10mm in it for us. A chilly few days coming up again....

Re: Low pressure sequence. 24–31 May

Frost here this morning with a minimum of 0c.

Next week looks more like a Southern Vic system. Great to see so much snow on the Alps though.

Re: Low pressure sequence. 24–31 May

May 2000 was colder and had a 5 day barrage from the SW if I recall correctly. But next week looks like more snow for the Alps and it could be the deepest snow for Queens Birthday weekend in decades (perhaps since 1960).

It got to 10c earlier, but now just 7c after a brief shower of rain. Brrrr.

Real cold stuff has gone through Warrnambool. It dipped to 4c there a little while ago.

Re: Low pressure sequence. 24–31 May

It seems to be taking a hard turn to the right as it hits the coast. Struggling to move North?

Sun is shining here.

Re: Low pressure sequence. 24–31 May

Rather mild at present. Looking forward to tomorrow.

Incidentally, 06z GFS is hinting at another possible cold outbreak next week. One to watch.

Re: Low pressure sequence. 24–31 May

Yes drizzle, but more like light rain at times. I wonder if it will develop a proper rain band, would be nice to get another 10 or 15 We've had another 1mm in today's drizzle so far. A good chance of 5mm or so in the next front this week. I reckon Mt Alexander (740m) might get a dusting of snow tom...
