Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Spent the weekend doing various repairs and clean-ups after the storm, but luckily only minor stuff. A tougher time for many, especially those who are still without power. A feature of this one is just how widespread the wind damage was. About 70mm for the event here, although I reckon it was a bit ...

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Had some wild weather here, unfortunately so wild that my obs were effected since about 11 last night. pretty upset as would have been great data, power was off from 830 last night till 1230 then from 150am till 330 this afternoon. We do get extra strong SSE winds locally due to the gap next to the...

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Looking like a monster system on latest GFS and ACCESS too - might be a case of, 'be careful what we wish for'. :o A bit eerie how the models are aligning a week out. Great rain, nearing 60mm, but I've never been so pleased to see a big system exit stage right... at least for our area. Couldn’t agr...

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Just awful wind last night. Sounds like a lucky escape HB, but still some repairs ahead. We sprung a leak in the roof where a cable from our wireless internet enters the roof into a cupboard, which must have loosened the seal around it. No great issue, but quite a lot of water came through, so we we...

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Absolutely wild here too. Extreme winds shaking the house plus driving, sideways rain. It has been raining non-stop since mid-morning. 54mm for the event so far, lots of surface water about the place, and quite a few reports of flooding and trees down around the Gisborne area. Cold too, with the tem...

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Has been pouring here this morning - 26.6mm for the event so far. We're right on the edge of the main wraparound, so the rain has eased off a bit in the last half hour. Will be interesting to watch how it evolves on the radar. I'm also not looking forward to the winds given where we are. Just a gent...

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

The wind is absolutely wild here. We had a power outage this evening - just came back on about an hour ago. The front is not too far away now. Expecting the first drops of rain over the next half hour. Really hoping the wind doesn’t get any worse. I don’t think I have seen such a sharp edge on a fro...

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Good consistency across the models now. Generally looking good across the eastern half of the state and most of the south. Obviously a big event in Gippsland. Macedon Ranges and other parts of the central highlands are also looking well-placed, with the airflow turning southerly a bit later in the s...

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Temp fluctuated a lot overnight here, but managed to get down to 1.6c. Currently 6c now and the wind has really picked up - wind chill is running at about 0-2c. Nice and wintry. Wood heater is running of course :)

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

A brief max of 10.5c here today, with most of the day around 8-9c. Currently 4.5c, so a chilly evening. We had 0.8mm overnight.

Still waiting for the models to settle, probably another couple of days at least. Or it might be one of those times when it’s not clear until the day itself!

Re: Strong Cold Front & Low: 7th - 10th June

Beautiful sunrise pic HB. 2mm here overnight. Looking interesting for next week, although EC has downgraded quite a lot in its latest run (focusing the big falls out east) while ACCESS has gone crazy for central areas. EC will probably come back a bit but it shows that there is a fair amount of unce...

Re: Trough and Front - 25th - 27th May

Down to 3.3c here. This occurred in the evening before midnight. An inversion kicked in, followed by the northerly wind, so temp went up to 8c by 3am. It’s quite difficult to get down to zero or below here, as we’re often subject to inversions, except when there are southerly cold outbreaks of cours...

Re: Trough and Front - 25th - 27th May

Stayed cloudy here for much of the night as well, with the temp hovering around 5c before dropping to 1.8c at about 4am once the cloud cleared. Definitely on track for a colder evening today - currently 7c and falling quickly. The minimum will depend on when the northerly wind kicks in.

Cold, gloomy day here too. We had a brief max of 9.8c. Currently 6.9c. A bit of drizzle earlier in the day, with 0.2mm, but 107.6mm for the month. A few cold nights ahead!

Re: Trough and Front - 25th - 27th May

We're certainly in interesting times. In the meantime, 6.8mm here today. Was quite surprised. I was only expecting about a mm, but a decent line of showers and drizzle set itself up in the right spot to make a gloomy, wet day.

Re: Trough and Front - 25th - 27th May

A couple more mm yesterday evening, which took us up to 16.8mm in total and exactly 100mm MTD. Not expecting much more here this week - maybe a few dribs and drabs - before the high moves in. Could be some cold, frosty nights on the weekend if the sky stays clear.

Re: Trough and Front - 25th - 27th May

A decent soaking here with 14.2mm. As expected, central and northern areas of the Macedon Ranges did quite a bit better than our area, with lots of spots recording 20+mm.

Re: Trough and Front - 25th - 27th May

Turned wild here. Raining heavily with squally winds. Awful wind last night, with gusts up to 75km/h, which woke me up quite a few times. Had to go out to check for damage this morning, but thankfully nothing. 3.2mm here so far.

Re: Trough and Front - 25th - 27th May

Weird temps around the Macedon Ranges as well with inversions taking place. Currently 10c here. But at 200m elevation, it’s around 2-4c, sub-zero at 600m and then above 7c at around 800m. It did get down to 2.3c here overnight, but the temp was really jumping around between 1am and 4am.
