Stinker today for VIC. Might sneak a 40C somewhere around Melbourne today, but cbd looks like a near miss. Northwest will easily get past 40C. Melbourne historically used to average a 40C about once ever year or two, so nothing too unusual with summer so far, except all that rain which was locally record heavy
TAS is split between heavy rain the the southwest and sunny warm weather in the northeast. Down here in Howden we are wiggling in and out of the rain band. Had 2mm so far. Progs are really spraying for today here with GFS showing about zero (so we are head of that) while UK and EC have 10-15mm. Hope they are right, but doubt we will be that lucky.
Ex TC gonna race towards the southeast the next 36 hours, likely to touch the far northeast, but mainly a NSW system.
