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

Radar has cleared and it is looking like a dry start to the day. Hoping these winds are not as bad as predicted, got some leaking pipes near home (thanks YVW) and some wet feet for the big gums. What time are we expecting the heavy rain, afternoon or night?

Re: Rain and storms with heavy falls?: January 28-31

Been steady rain wherever I have been today from Phillip Island to Broadmeadows to Lilydale. Fun day to be driving a truck. Keilor seems to be topping out at 454mm with 198mm in the last hour. :o Might be a slight issue with that reading I think.

Re: Brief hot spell followed by a strong front: December 26-27

Change coming across the bay now, any chance of decent storms?
(Edit) we got plenty of wind and about 17 single raindrops but no thunder here in Mount Evelyn.

Re: Low crossing Vic 22 - 23 Nov

Nice bit of rain here filling the tanks ok. Gave the veggie garden a good water yesterday so all this is a bonus. Still got spiders in the AWS so reading 0mm again.

Re: another 1 or 2 lows tracking SE over Vic 22 Oct - ?

Well it looks like rain, it feels like rain too but me AWS tells me we have had 0.3mm of rain. Oh, and a spider is living in my rain gauge. May have to get a manual gauge I think.

Looks like there is some more rain inbound, question is, will it get over the ranges?

Re: Windy with a late change: September 2-3

Our street in Mount Evelyn still had houses without power last night, took until monday night for the gum tree blocking the road to get moved. Most of the trees down were from having wet feet and the soil giving way. Waiting to see what happens with the rest of this period, garden drying out on top ...

Don’t know how accurate the radar is but it is showing over 50mm near Kyneton in the last hour. Got to be a little flash flooding out there.
