ECL and cold fronts 5 April - 12 April

Torrential in bayside earlier.

Rained all night and absolutely bucketing earlier. Feels like we’ve had about 50 mm in Brighton

ECL and cold fronts 5 April - 12 April

Looks like the rains going to set in overnight in Melbourne, could be quite a bit by the looks of the radar.

Re: A hot start to February with gusty winds.

Looks like only 34 for Melbourne on Sunday now, that’s a relief.

Yes no 35 degree day yet this summer, surely we will have a few before the end of the season.

Been a real absence of hot northerlies this year., in fact the last few years now. Can’t say I miss them!

Re: Developing low with more rain and storms: January 15-20

Another inch of rain today, great for time of year, these consistent heavy events. Drove to Adelaide and back from Melbourne last weekend, it’s pretty green all the way - lush, even, in some parts, grass growing through freshly cut wheat fields etc. even in the typically drier areas. never seen it l...

Re: Deepening low with rains and storms: January 7-10

Yes I remember that time well. Countryside as dry as dust and all vegetation, gums etc looking very sickly and stressed. The area around Bendigo in particular was super parched. What a change to now. Love seeing everything vibrant and green even in summer. I was over in Adelaide for new year and the...

Re: Warm then more showers, 4/12 to13/12

A fair few storms about here, especially around the middle of the day, but they were all fast moving. We also scraped most of them and the couple that hit directly were over in minutes. So only managed 1mm. Some great big booms and plenty of flashes though, so still a lot of storm activity. Now it’...

7 completely sunless days in the last 2 weeks in Melb.

Must be some kind of record for the time of year!

Re: Becoming humid with showers, storms and rain: November 22-30

When’s the sun going to come out?!

Can’t remember an almost sunless week like this in Melbourne for a year or two.

Re: Series of weak troughs with some showers and storms: November 17-22

I always find this kind of weather quite peculiar but I don’t dislike it. We’re weeks away from summer, the UV is super strong, the sun is shining and it’s generally pretty peachy, but if I’m not in the sun, I’m frozen by windchill, if I’m in the sun, I’m burning. Almost feels like “alpine” type wea...

Impressive stats for September.

Re: Warming up to early season heat possibly followed by rain: Late September to early October

This September has been so warm, average maxes in Melb have not only been warmer than 2022 (by 4 degrees) but September 2023’s maxes have also been warmer than October and November 2022!

Re: Early spring warmth/heat: September 12-?

What a cracking day.

Scary temps for the time of year for Sydney though.

Glad I’m not doing the Marathon tomorrow there - 30 degrees forecast. 😬

Re: Early spring warmth/heat: September 12-?

Light sea breeze has come in bayside. Rather early in the year for sea breezes but welcome

Feels rather humid though.
