Reached a lovely warm top of 29.6C here in Belgrave today, oh so close to the magic 30C mark! smile

Currently around 28C. Still pleasant outside, although it is getting cloudier and the breeze is kicking up a bit.

Just viewing the Elwood Sailing Club webcams, it looks dark out over the bay, and there's a shelfie forming! Tonnes of lightning in this impending storm front, which should strike Melbourne over the next hour! My fingers are twitching to use the camera haha. =D

Best storm this season for me (well when I was home), fantastic lightning, crawlers morphing into CG,s some wind and more rain than any model picked. Its still raining but nudging 5mm I suspect. If round 2 makes it here will be a good start on the event total.

Good storm at Frankston earlier too by a family report.

This storm band looks to be slow, and near provides all of Vic with a storm given the extent of its NW-SE slant from N of the Murray to near-Tassie!

29.4C here today in varying breezes, now dark to our W quadrant.

Time to fire the BBQ up and watch whatever we get from this first pre-frontal band evolve smile

GFS and AccR agree on a similar wet outcome for S VIc that has been consistently progged for days now:

The pattern continues, Movement from the NW, gets closer to the metro boundary, disappears and reopens when it is around Frankston.

6.5mm from the storm band, looks like another mm or two in the last 30 mins or so.

Walked up the hill this arvo to get this view to the WSW as the line approached



After the storm, as well as a great rainbow there was a spectacular mammatus display
