Dipped to 12.9C at Khancoban, NSW this morning. Yesterday it topped 27.1C here in Corryong, Northeast Victoria. smile

Collected 1mm of rain last night (no storms sadly). I actually picked up 1mm on Thursday morning, not 0.5mm. smile

Currently underneath the low's wrap-around; any showers we get today will most likely come from the south. It's about 16C atm.

Sad to be heading back home to Melbourne today, so I'll be missing the upcoming extended spell of warm, sunny weather here in the Upper Murray. frown

It's astonishing that Sydney will come in with a March average maximum below that of March last year even with the first half of the month being as record-breakingly warm as it was.

Our March average has just dipped 0.1 degree below our January max actual. no mean feat to be that close!!

Warmth not finished yet either. nothing dramatic on the coast or here but plenty warm enough for this time of year. Our hottest April day is 32 (1986) so at least it's unlikely here to get to 30 or beyond. smile

A great day today. Still a westerly blowing at home and about 25-26C at a guess. Was a beautiful sunny morning but has clouded over with dark, mid level cloud now.

Seems that southerly has flopped, which might be due to that inland placing of the low that Dave brought up. Would be the reason why there weren't heavy falls on the south coast either.

Was a ripper of a day - I went down for a swim this morning and the temperature of the air and the water was fantastic. Nice clean surf too, although I wouldn't have minded some more size.

Lack of moisture killed our storm chances today unfortunately frown

March will come in likely the second warmest on record for Sydney - just behind 2006. Nights (depending on tonight) should be the warmest on record, whilst days will be around 4th or 5th warmest on record.

Finally some decent rain, last night and again this evening.
What was looking like a very dry month has been saved by the bell, in the last 2 days.

I can see some flashes too. The cell I'm looking at is ENE and is further away than the other night. Here's a shot from Monday - I was lucky enough to catch the only CG I saw

Loc: Melbourne (Belgrave); Corryong...
Hey guys, I'm back home in Melbourne. Here's my report covering the return journey from Corryong today. smile

It was mostly cloudy (as stated in my last post, while in town), with light rain showers commencing around 2pm. It was also very hazy, and noticeably coolish, around 20C. Thank goodness my family and I had glorious autumn weather between last Thursday (when we arrived) and today! smile

We left for home around 3pm. The temperature from Corryong to Berringama dropped a couple of notches to 18C, and even further to 14C up at Shelley and Koetong. Light (almost moderate) rain showers continued intermittently for much of the time (showers were scattered across the Upper Murray and over the NSW Snowy Mountains), but upon reaching the small locality of Bullioh (near Tallangatta) we noted clearing skies to the west! The temperature rebounded to 18C at this stage. We stopped in Tallangatta for a quick break around 3:45pm. smile

The view south up the Mitta Mitta River Valley showed Mount Bogong almost-completely cloaked in low cloud. Lake Hume is currently only about 26% full according to Goulburn-Murray Waters btw. frown

Leaving Tallangatta around 4pm, the temperature crept up a notch to 19C, and despite the light rain the Sun started to appear through the thinning cloudcover as we approached the western side of the low's wrap-around. However, the smoke haze to the west was increasingly, and there were smoke plumes wafting northwards overhead from the Victorian High Country. poke

The temperature hovered around 18-19C all the way through to Beechworth; the rain stopped as we passed through Tangambalanga/Kiewa, and the low's wrap-around gave way to sunshine (albeit still very hazy, and partly cloudy conditions) once we reached Yackandandah. More low cloud was observed over the mountains on the western side of the Kiewa River Valley to the south, and I noted a burn-off smoke plume to the southwest of Yackandandah. Around 4:40pm we reached Beechworth. smile

Around 5:15pm we departed Beechworth. Out on the Ovens River flats in Tarrawingee, the temperature rose to 21C, and remained so all the way to our usual dinner stop in Benalla (around 6pm). Unfortunately the southerly breeze, while very slight, made it feel a bit too cool for my liking. eek

Just prior to leaving Benalla for home, I enjoyed a lovely sunset over the vast open Northern Plains just after 7pm, complete with high cloud from the cold front now slipping southeast beyond Tasmania, smoke haze towards Shepparton, and planes (and their left-over contrails) travelling north and northeast from Melbourne to Wagga Wagga, Sydney, the Gold Coast and Brisbane. smile

Skies were almost cloudfree during the rest of the homeward journey (from 7:30pm onwards), although smoke haze, contrails and patchy high cloud were still visible to the west/northwest until darkness took over after 8pm.

Below is a list of how the temperature changed over time from Benalla through to my home here in Belgrave. Times are approximate only:

Benalla (7:30pm) - 16C
Lake Nillahcootie (7:45pm) - 15C
Maindample (8pm) - 14C
Merton (8:20pm) - 13C
Molesworth (8:40pm) - 12C
Yea-Murrindindi (8:50pm) - 11C
Glenburn (9:05pm) - 9C
Castella-Lilydale (9:10-9:40pm) - 9-10C
Mount Evelyn-Silvan (9:40-9:50pm) - 10-11C
Monbulk-Kallista (9:50-10pm) - 9-10C
Kallista-Belgrave (10-10:15pm) - 8-10C

Some nice patchy autumn colours while I was still in Corryong, and again in Beechworth, with even nicer colours in Shelley (at least in part due to the locality's higher elevation), but almost no autumn colour in Tallangatta. Ah well! smile

Also noted the scars of a small burn-off in the pine plantations and bushland of Koetong.

A pity I saw no storms while I was away. Most times I visit Corryong during the autumn (whether or not I go in the Easter weekend) I usually get to see at least one thunderstorm, even if it's not while I'm in town but on my way to or from there, or if the storm is occurring some distance away but still visible. Below is a quick list of my Corryong autumn trips (since 2003) when I've been able to witness thunderstorm activity:

March 2003
April 2004
April 2006
March 2008
April 2009
April 2010 (heavy thunderstorm in Kinglake while driving up to Corryong from Melbourne)
April 2012
April 2013 (coldie thunderstorms en route to Corryong, mainly from Melbourne through to Seymour via Yea)
April 2015

Anyways, it's currently 8C here in Belgrave so a cold night ahead! poke

Thoughts already turned to my winter travel plans, which are likely to include Corryong (hopefully some severe frost, heavy fog, and a chance to go to the snow as well), and possibly Sydney and Fiji! wink

See you guys in NSW/ACT soon! smile

Hi ASF, Loved reading about your travel stories and weather reports, I love NE Victoria and the Snowy region of southern NSW and know it well. I spent a few days in Bright recently and noted that the autumn colours had not come out then, they are just starting to appear in Canberra now signalling the shorter days and cooler weather.
A coolish 8C in Canberra this morning a sign that our frosty weather isn't going to be far away. Next week the weather is forecast to be warming up though so who knows what will really happen.

Cheers Teddy

Nice shot there Jimi.

ASF - you're a weather and bush mad man, good onya mate, always so enthusiastic in your reports. Pleasure to read them when you slip into our state. smile

Our Autumn colours started VERY early in Feb BUT I reckon it was the dry causing it. We had a bit od precip a couple of weeks ago and it has sort of STOPPED in many trees. The colours are now minimal, plenty of trees had leaves that just shrivelled and browned instead of colouring.

We do have Autumnal trees but it's been hit and miss. Should really get going again this month. smile

A nice Autumnal 5 degrees here this morning, our coldest this year. smile

Hey g'day and bula Teddy and DaveM! smile

Cheers guys, I love NSW/ACT almost as much as Victoria, and I enjoy reading your reports too. And right you are DaveM I love the Aussie bush! grin

Yes Bright does feature some stunning autumn colours, but I have only been there a few times (always in the summer).

My most recent trip to Bright was back in late-January 2007. We were returning home from Corryong, but rather than go to Albury/Wodonga or through Yackandandah and Beechworth, we went south on the Kiewa Valley Highway to Mount Beauty and then across to Bright and nearby Mount Buffalo. This was the summer of the 2006/2007 Alpine Bushfires which forced to closure of the Mount Buffalo Chalet btw; the scars of these fires were clearly visible.

We then returned to Melbourne by cutting across to the M31 Hume Freeway (Melbourne-Sydney) from Myrtleford straight through Millawa to Glenrowan, rather than all the way up the Great Alpine Road to Wangaratta I believe.

Anyways as stated I look forward to my next trip into Northern Victoria and across the Murray River into NSW/ACT! Enjoy autumn and the coming winter fellas! wink

Edit: another good spot to witness spectacular autumn colours in Northeast Victoria and Southeast NSW/ACT (aside from Bright, Beechworth, Corryong, and Canberra) is Tumbarumba. They can be incredibly vibrant, but I'm usually either too early or too late to catch them at their best, or else I'm unable to go there. I saw beautiful autumn foliage in Tumbarumba in April 2003, April 2006, and April 2007. smile

Tumut is also famous for its autumn foliage, but I've only been there in the summer, most recently in January 2014 on my way back to Corryong and Melbourne from Merimbula and Canberra. smile

Indeed Talbingo is another great spot! Only been there a few times, my last visit into town and the nearby Tumut 3 Power Station was January 2004 I believe. I passed Talbingo while travelling up the Snowy Mountains Highway from Corryong, Khancoban, Cabramurra and Kiandra for a day trip to Tumut back in January 2008, returning home via Batlow and Tumbarumba btw. smile

Also visited Adelong btw, most recently while passing through the Tumut as my family and I were heading back from Merimbula and Canberra to Corryong and Melbourne back in January 2014 btw. smile

Today at Obs Hill needed to reach 26.5C to match the average max of 26.8C last March. It fell short by 0.9C today resulting in an average max 0.029C lower

Wow, such a surprisingly little difference between such warm months.

And on that note, we could have some record breaking temps for April come Tuesday or Wednesday next week according to the forecasts around the place.

Ended up getting the MARCH record, but with one reading missing - which could have made a difference as that day was around 25C, but nonetheless, 30.2 for March stands.
