Yep, totally unexpected! Very sudden fast-moving thunderstorm that sprung to life just to our northwest! smile

The skies looked very dark and suspicious about 10 minutes beforehand, then at 6:37pm we had thunder! The storm just grazed us to the north and lasted only 10 minutes, so we only got light winds and sprinkling rain. The thunder and lightning were entertaining though, occurring on average once a minute! The storm finished with a potentially dangerous CG. smile

A moderately hot day here in Belgrave, with a top of 30.6C. Cool southerlies atm, currently around 21C. smile

Hope we get more stormy weather as the cold front moves into Melbourne! smile

Sky still looking unstable and radar starting to pop with more showers. Until the cold air gets here we might have a window where these random showers keep popping.

Jeepers not many strikes gotta be unlucky that one hit something to cause an outage.

A few snaps as I am desperate to photograph anything. Also learnt I really need to clean my camera, apologies for the dust bunnies everywhere.

Amazingly this diffuse weak looking sky was rumbling



To the NW, a still weak but marginally better looking cell briefly got up.



Finally a rainbow off to the ENE, hope the Springsteen crowd next to Hanging Rock (right side of shot) stay dry tonight and enjoyed the brief hosing earlier.

Heaven here, cold blustery with some scattered showers, could be excused thinking it was Winter @ round 15C atm.

1.5mm so far, grass has held colour, and thereby much more fire safe, over the last four days that were BOM forecast to average 36.5C.

Thanks for the pics Ruckle, re thunder, it's quite surprising how far the sound travels, regularly note thunder/lightning noise from 30km away.

Hoping today lives up to your hopes, I like it like this also.

Up to 11.6c now! Another line of showers coming now though. At 845 we got to 9.7c with some mist. Breeze just starting to rise so the promised windy conditions should start to fill in from west to east now.

Well at least many of us Victorians are enjoying this very, VERY welcome reprieve from the bushfire risk that poor NSW and Queensland sadly have to deal with. Because I live in a particularly high risk area I've had enough of hot, dry weather forever; if the mercury has to go above 35C or even 40C then the air had better be sultry, preferably with storms and heavy rainfall. Herp de derp! mad frown

Anyway...

My coldest day for the year, with a high of only 19.4C, following an overnight low of 13.3C. smile

Not much in the way of rainfall though, had a few brief heavy showers earlier this morning, dropping 2.1mm. A few more showers rolled through as the day progressed, with another 1.1mm collected. The day started out mostly cloudy, but sunshine became more prevalent from lunchtime onwards. smile

The wind felt quite brisk though, but it beats searing heat! smile

Currently around 17C. Looking forward to the more pleasing summer weather that's expected this coming week! smile

Edit: amendment to my previous post, it was actually 30.8C here in Belgrave yesterday, not 30.6C. Sorry for the typo lol. poke

Nice photos Ruckle.

We had thunder/rain twice last night in the most unexpected (non-impressive) bleak stratus sky.

The 2nd storm (circa 1030pm) produced a single "cracker" thunder -out of the blue (no rumbling precursors) - that had most of the town talking about today.

Re lights out in Sale last evening, apparently an unlucky lighting strike at a substation in Sale, acc. to a family source.

Ruckle - you were spot on with your "cold blue line" prognosis for today several days ago. ....it got very cold under the odd light shower in brisk SW'ly working up at Royal Maffra this arvo!

We got 3.5mm here past 24hrs, nice addition to last weeks 24mm given it is February!

Blue line snap:

2.4mm all up from yesterday evening and today am, wind less than anticipated as it had a bit more W in it and we are somewhat sheltered from that direction. 17.2 for a high. Welcome DP down to 4

Being a country hick I had to google Purile, it says -

"Puerile in a Sentence. Since my son is thirty-three years of age, I do not find his puerile behavior amusing. Your jokes are puerile and not appropriate for a woman of your years. If you behave in a puerile manner during a job interview, the interviewer will think you are very childish."



Reached the max of 21C here this arvo' round 1700hrs'ish when the cloud cleared for a while, throughly enjoyed our day of Winter in February with 2.5mm out of the event.
