I didn’t know that about Woodend, but it does make sense that there would be a kind of tunnel effect given the local topography. Crazy night - something I wouldn’t want to experience again. We’re also quite exposed to southerlies here, which can be especially strong on summer afternoons when sea breezes kick in.Mike wrote: ↑Thu Jun 10, 2021 5:04 pmHad 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 mountain, which creates very windy days, usually in summer , when the rest of the state is just "breezy' and yesterday, last night and today we had a severe synoptic set up to support it. Result was carnage.
Hope the Davis is ok. Shame you missed the readings but that ground reading is a pretty strong indication of what was probably close to cyclonic.
