Humid with showers and storms, followed by strong front: March 22-26

Post by hillybilly » Thu Mar 21, 2019 9:28 pm

Finally a bit of weather showing up with a deepening trough Friday into Saturday, then another trough on Sunday with a strong front for Monday. Best will be about the eastern ranges, but the whole state should get a bit. Models have been a bit jumpy, but looks like 5-20mm most southern and mountain areas, with much better falls in the northeast.

Instability indices look good for Friday and Saturday, though poorer moisture will edge down from the northwest.

Strong front for Sunday night, with snow about the peaks for Monday. It’s a bit westerly for heavy falls away from the coast, but stills look ok.

Some showers starting to build in northcentral which will move south and east overnight.

Thick fog up here, but again still no proper rain :( Good storms out east and been the odd light shower in central Vic. Unstable today, but mainly focused on the east. Similar tomorrow. Warm to hot and humid, still feeling more like mid summer than mid autumn.

I just want rain - anything. The wet bush here is dying. Looks like missing here again.

Big storm just exploded over the middle burbs of Melbourne. Went through it on the train - raindrops the size of "soggy" golf balls. Nice convergence zone supporting this, so hopefully it continues to grow.

Biggest fattest mamatamis clouds.
Ripper storm on radar.
Sitting in the south side of it.
Been stinking all day no breeze and just picking up now.

Nasty looking storm in the north east suburbs. A few good falls in the area around here, but pretty much missed us. Still managed 1.3mm and some good rumbles.
