Re: Warm with possible heavy falls developing: First week of October

will this be the tropical with thunderstorms active, or just a more winter like rain set in with risk of some thunder like the last time?

Why is the lightning only happening in the same area but dying before it hits the metro area?

Re: Settled week then rain? 23-31 March

Just a few distant rumbles and a very fast heavy shower and then it was gone. No severe storm warnings, nothing severe about it yet, again i took notice of the forecast of "it being potentially severe", and all the talk on the various weather forums of the perfect conditions for it to get nasty and ...

Re: Vic - Humid & Potential for Rain: Feb 5-20, 2020

Re: Vic - Humid & Potential for Rain: Feb 5-12, 2020

very boring weather here, just spits of rain and humid again. I'm out to water the garden soon! I am wondering when Melbourne will see any sort of storm action, each time its been on the cards its gone around us or vanishes quickly from the forecasts. Still yet to actually have a proper storm here t...

Re: Vic - Humid & Potential for Rain: Feb 5-12, 2020

seems to be all happening outside the suburban zone, is it the sea breeze? (I'm trying to understand the hows/whys) with this current set up, is it relying on heating for convection like usual? or is the atmosphere unstable enough to not require the sun? ie: Is it likely to continue forming storms a...
