I've had ECLs in Sydney, Central Coast, even had the effects of big one when I was in Bathurst (the one that gave us some decent flooding). This right here is very comparable.

The 'rain train' that I was under for most of the day brings back some good memories from the coast grin

Wind tonight is very close to the record gust on this station - 84.6kph is the all time record (from its one year of life), and I saw a few >80 numbers flash up in the past hour. Oddly, these don't seem to actually be recording in the upload to Wunderground. I think it just captures the gust at the time of sending data, so the only thing I have to go on here is that all-time record and watching the numbers like a hawk.

While I type it's been fairly consistently going above 60kph gusts, and a few above 70kph. I'll be surprised if the road is clear in the morning.

Had some solid rain in the last 2 hours, prob 1/2" if similiar to Mt Moornapa obs.

Rain like this is what's needed to put a good snow coating on our closer high points - if it's cold enough up there !

edit- Omeo on 0.0C since 1930 and close to that since 1800 with 1.8mm, could be white there in the AM.

It's still coming down out there, sounds pretty heavy at times but that might be the wind making it sound better than it really is. The wireless weather station gave up recording rain half way through the day, so will have to wait until the morning to get final figures.

Temp is a bit odd tonight, hardly any variation at all after a 2c rise just before sunset.

My high for yesterday was 10.0C, at the rather odd time of about 11:30pm!! crazy

Still just under 10C atm. Humidity is at 98%, dew point 10C, and barometric pressure reading 1007hPa. Also had ad a bit of wind over the past hour. Peak gust was about 17km/h. smile

Rainfall total since 9am is 24.2mm. Very happy about that! grin

Here in the Riviera it's a ridiculous 11C, checked two thermometers, one is higher than that! Gauge now has total 15mm which shows an additional 10mm since yesterday morn.

Glimpse of MtWELL 10 min ago, can see areas of white through the cloud/fog up there. Slight breeze.

Another Winter day.

MtBawBaw - 75mm, right there dooga smile

Crazy busy weekend for me, not a chance to do any weather-watching/chasing at all, unfortunately, otherwise I would have made the trip up to Donna.

I can confirm just under 27mm of rain yesterday, though smile smile

22.7mm here as the total. Given the exposure of the rain bucket to southerly winds (it has line of sight to Melbourne), and the radar returns from the day, I'd say that's an underreport.

I'm in the darker part of the 25-50mm zone here:

I tipped out 13mm at tea last night,wouldnt have had to much more overnight.

Weird things going on with the temps during yesterday and today!
Yesterday it sat on 4-5c all day,then once we got to about 5pm the temp started rising with the rain and wind to finally stop at 8.6c at about 11pm last night! Then it 7.5c when at 7am this morning and has dropped further to 6.3c now!

The next front coming up this arvo should give us another round of rain,hail and cold temps!The southerly fetch on this one is coming from along way south,so wouldnt be suprised if its a little colder than forecast?

I think you are right Doogasnow.
The next couple of days are going to be colder at my place for sure than the last two days.
I reckon a bit of snow is on the cards tomorrow.
It feels much colder now than it did on the weekend.

Great reports all.

A solid rainy period last evening provided another 5.5mm taking us to 10.5mm for this event so far (rain band not far away will be the "last hurrah" as Dooga has just noted. Great snow (400mm+?) and minor flooding Cann and Genoa Rivers. A decent winter event not quite finished yet.

....now to the rapidly approaching low roaring up from deep below the bight! - .... on the new thread.

Overnight low of 7.6C (at around 10am, mind you - it was still stuck around 10C when I left for work at Dandenong around 8am), peaked at 12.5C just before midday, currently around 9C. smile

Picked up an additional 3.2mm of rain between midnight and 7am, bringing the total to 27.4mm. smile

It was drizzling when I left for work, at times heavily. But the cloud and showers cleared before lunchtime, and we had some sunshine! Still, the wind made it feel most unpleasant! poke

Clouds thickened up and much heavier showers resumed by mid-afternoon (courtesy of the trough following on the heals of the main storm moving away into the Pacific). At times it was very dark, and the clouds were low, dense and fast-moving; the rain was torrential in bursts as well, especially during and after the trip home after 5pm! Picked up 9.5mm at the last check. smile

Edit: the bulk of the second burst of rain cleared some time ago, but another string of heavy showers is inching its way towards Belgrave from the west! smile

Edit: also should mention I saw localised flooding around the Dandenong area, with Dandenong Creek up a fair bit. smile

It's been wild here with 18.6mm so far this evening. Add that to yesterday's 23.0mm and that's 41.6mm over two days...more than double the total amount of 19.4mm that fell for all of June. grin

Last night the weather man on ABC said snow today in western vic to 500m and 700m elsewhere across the state.
A cold day on the way for me. We hit -0.6C at 7am under a cloudy sky.
That is cold!

It's still only 2.8C at Trentham at 700m
That means my place at 870m would be around 1.5C now.
Coldest day of the year.

I can see the mountain from where I work at Macedon and it's looking very wintry up there today.

Hopefully a bit of snow later.

There is a band coming through and it looks like its about to impact the macedon/trentham area as we speak?
Could turn to snow straight up through there going off those temps smile
