Wasn't expecting this much but 10.2mm this afternoon with maybe a little bit more before it clears, brings MTD to 99mm.

All too westerly for most of TAS. Further 0.2mm here. Ok falls out west, but it’s always wet out there 🤣 Amazing how central VIC keeps getting events, while much of the country has turned dry in recent months.

Probably new thread time. Going to be a cold start to May with a high south of WA throwing up a sequence of fronts. Could land a few cold outbreaks if that sticks.

Cold out there now, too.

A chilly start this morning, down to 3.8c under clear, sunny skies. We had 8.8mm yesterday evening, so not a bad drop.

Yes we did well, and another 5mm today, so 13mm for the dates so far, and 88.5mm mtd (not that I think there's much left). A very good April compared to our 56mm average. Think you're still ahead of us though snowfall?
It has been a surprisingly bumper April, currently on 136mm, mainly boosted by a big downpour on the easter weekend.

We got 3.75mm from an overnight period of light drizzly rain. Back to a calm cool 18C max today after a 5 day string of 22-25C days.

52.25mm for this month, only 10mm or so below average, not bad for the farmers sowing pasture around here past 3 weeks.

Light frost this morning. 1.7c minimum. Cracking day today.

April 2023 had an mean max 1.1c below average, and a mean min 0.8c above average. 70mm of rain which is quite good. La Nina hangover I suspect.
