Deep ECL with heavy rain, gales, storm surge and some snow

Proper cold day today. Hasn't got above 10c yet, and currently 8c. Now this is real July weather - love it!

Deep ECL with heavy rain, gales, storm surge and some snow

For the record, June 2024 was typical of winter, even cooler than long term average. August could be very interesting given what appears to be some significant disturbances appearing in the stratosphere above Antarctica atm. Who knows?

Deep ECL with heavy rain, gales, storm surge and some snow

Only 0.4mm here. Warming up now with sub-tropical air advected in from the Southeast (yet again). Our max temps this month are nearly 2c above average. Could get close to our hottest July for daily max temp mean. Only Thursday and Friday might have below average temps in the next week for us. I sus...

Deep ECL with heavy rain, gales, storm surge and some snow

It got to 11c earlier. Showers since 3pm and now 8c.

I'm quite interested in what GFS is forecasting around July 25-27. Something to keep an eye on.

Deep ECL with heavy rain, gales, storm surge and some snow

There could be a late sting in the tail after Thursday going by some of the forecast charts. Potentially a good snow producer on the Alps.

Anyway, things are feeling rather fresh after 28mm last week and a cool (not cold) SWly today.

Easterly low followed by a series of fronts: July 9-

Some big rain totals to our Northwest already. Ie. 42mm at Wilcannia.

Probably around 10mm later today. Quite humid and mild atm.

Wind picked up overnight so no frost again. Almost 10c difference between some locations around town though. -5c to 5c. Crazy.

We've had 15c+ temps 4 days in a row. Ridiculously hot for early July.

Cold tonight though, now the SEly has abated.

I'm somewhat optimistic about next week. 20-30mm is possible here. Then proper cold July weather next weekend.

We're having the hottest start to July since 1994. Where is winter?

A very warm 15c already. We'll almost certainly have our hottest July for Max temps at the current rate.

Hopefully some more typical July weather later in the Month. Some indications of that after July 12th.

Deep low with some showers: Last week of June

-1c here this morning. A southerly breeze blew nearly all night keeping the temps up. Happens often.

Some indications of a bit of rain from an inland low next week. It could be useful rain.

16mm over the past week. Not a bad result.

A cold 1 degC and light frost this morning. Probably no rain for the next two weeks going by that blocking High. Ugh.

We will be lucky to scrounge another 5-10mm out of June. First week of July looks more promising tbh.

Deep low with some showers: Last week of June

These frosts are really something this winter around Bendigo. -1c at our place again this morning, and some of the local farm dams had ice forming on the surface.

Local water authority is also flat-out fixing burst water mains around town this weekend.

A mild 14c today. Feels tropical after the last few days. June is tracking below average for both min and max temps.

ECL followed by a sequence of fronts: June 5-12

There might be another 10-15mm over the next week if we're lucky. Looks like a big Low will form in the Bight next week. But I suspect it might slide SE-ward. Something to watch.

7c here atm. It'll be a single digit max temp today I suspect.
