Just over 7mm here today. 3mm before 9am and 4mm after. Cold max or 7C. Bit more than I as expecting so no complaints :D

Pretty uneventful month here. Temps quite mild with no frost. No snow and no proper sleet that I saw. Rain about 10mm below average.

Roller coaster week coming up with mild temperatures then a blast of cold. Could be a solid rainband mid week depending on which model you believe with very mild uppers 850Ts could well get to around 12C).

Fairly wet night here on the island, had just over 5mm. :)
Currently sunny skies with a moderate breeze outside, so should be a dry trip back to the west later on today.

3.3 to 8.2C here today with lots of sunshine. Bit of patchy fog on the grass so our first for the year.

Dropping quickly out there now, so might get a second :?:

Progs looking decent for the week ahead. Be interesting to see how mild it gets then how cold. Think we will fall short of early season records but could well see a 20C around Melbourne Wednesday or Thursday depending on cloud. Snow then dropping quite low on the weekend.

Already a frost here. Could be the coldest temp if the year coming up at this rate.

Snow could fall to around 600m on Sunday morning in Southern Vic I reckon. Looks like a textbook Souwester.

Currently -0.6 on the auto gauge, but -1.1 on the manual one which has proven to be a little more accurate on the colder nights. Yesterday we had 0.4

One cracker of a frost, but ofcourse a nice day to follow.

Weekend looking interesting.

One of those nights in the Dandenongs with dramatic mircroclimate variations. My thermometer only got down to 4.4C, but only a few metres down the hill everything is white and crunchy. No ice on the ponds, so looks to me like a min of around 0-1C around the lower parts of our block. There is gentle northerly which is obviously just enough to keep the top of our block mild.

-5C at Trentham and -4.5C where i work at Macedon. At 450m it is just about the lowest point around here and as a consequence it is quite frosty, being in the middle of a 700hectare farm also helps to keep it cold overnight. There is still frost here in all the shady areas.
I saw a PWS in Macedon township reporting only -2.C at the same time.
