Some pre event happy snaps to drool over..Yum yum dribble dribble
Thanks for the open nature of the thread PD. Will be able to post some VIC obs as well .and southern east SA and s/west Vic coastline looking to 'cop a beating 'from strong southerly gales along the coast first
First snap is of the surface synoptic . Centered at 996 hpascals over Tasmania on Friday morning. A protrusion of low pressure develops right over Vic , NSW and Tassie'
I have marked in blue showing the deep source of cold air from sub polar region

NEXT snap I particularly like this snap below from BOM WATL wind forecast !!!http://www.bom.gov.au/jsp/watl/wind/index.jsp
The wind streams pretty much complete a full rotation making this a low pressure cell rather than just a standard bend in the westerly belt and cold front.
The low pressure cell is developing and intensifying as it passes over s/east oz
The expanse of the wind streams associated with this low are incredibly large
Stretching way northward into southern qld, Some nice cold air interacting with the warm up there may produce some thunderstorms with trough to enhance?
and initially eastern SA.
You can see the high winds battering the coastline in s/east Sa and s/west VIC coastline
Surprised we have only a few mm forecast here?
Friday the temp in Bendigo is forecst for 11 deg c and melbourne 12 deg c , so certainly a snow fall day on the 'mounts,
A very tight curve of wind stream for melbourne central district in fri morning . severe weather event? storms hail wind etc?
Very exciting weather event..
3rd snap of WZ sat pic taken on this web site
I like the what looks like a double cloud front line with double cold pool
and its not even Wednesday yet when PD say we will see the cold pool come into view
Some nice priming entree.
