Hey Petros
Congrats here on your golf win!
It is bl**dy scorching here out in the paddocks. Not sure what the merc rose to today but was at 43.9 at lunch time so figuring it only got worse as the day went on.
Next these lightening storms are a worry, even with rain, smouldering tree roots can flare up days later, it can't be good with more warm days to follow, although I am a storm lover in this sort of weather they are dangerous. And no word from Fergus, so not expecting rain anytime soon.

Yeah, managed to snag one of those CG's thanks to the Fawkner Beacon live webcam



Still can't hear thunder but the flash frequency is insane, things could get very interesting here..

Perhaps they no longer fall under the 'severe' category.

First rumbles heard here as storms develop ahead of the line smile

EDIT:....and then disappear frown Typical, as always, Flinders get a decent light show when I'm not there...hope it happens tomorrow when I will be.

Went to bed around 1030, looks like I didnt miss anything (other than this weird phenomenon that every single storm within 120km of Melbourne must have a STW on it or the BOM are failing - no matter how weak the storm is).

Back at work today, can see some cu already toward the WSW. 29/15 in the city is a pretty warm start again.

Nice, you can see streaky precip in front of the lightning.

Hubby has so far this morning today seen three ringtail possums all in different locations on the roads wandering. Not sure what this means as they are a nocturnal animal. But makes us suspicious they know something we don't? You would think if they were moving for water they would be doing it during the cooler evenings. Any thoughts out there? Other then that no change here, still very warm.

Ringtails along with most other arboreal marsupials usually get most of their water out of the food they consume. When it gets dry and hot, particularly when the moisture content in the leaves drops, they need additional water so go looking for it.

Why go looking during the day? They are after water and cool because their brains are slowly dying due dehydration and organ failure, much the same way as humans get delirious and stupid when overheated. Unfortunately it is very common when the conditions are as hot as they are during the day and don't cool down enough at night to drop the core temperature. Some of the modeling I've seen on how marsupial populations and ranges will change if the duration and frequency of heatwaves increases looks fairly shabby for a lot of them.
