Email from home, gauge emptied and my fantastic event total is exactly 79.0mm so far. Still plenty of drizzle around so might edge up higher.

Models did great, as Petros said, picked the system way out then in last 24-48 hours switched correctly the heaviest rain from east of Melbourne to N and W of town. Details are rarely right further out than that.

Reached a top of only 14.2C here in Belgrave today, my coldest day for the year so far, and also my first day with a high of less than 15C for the year so far! eek

While not my coldest April day ever (the current record still belongs to April 25th 2015, with a high of only 14.0C), this is the earliest in the year/season I've ever recorded a high below 15C.

My last day with a high below 15C was 171 days (or 5 months, 20 days) ago on October 22nd last year, with a top of only 13.0C.

Anyway, going back to today...

No sunshine whatsoever, and virtually no further rainfall either! Only a stubborn low overcast. Thankfully there was also wind, but this weather is depressing. frown

Still only around 12C. Looking forward to the much warmer weather returning in coming days, in time for Easter! smile

Home, temp is currently 8.4c after a high of only 9.7c! There were lakes in the forest floor around Macedon which I could see from the train. Water everywhere - great work Huey.

Nice one ThunderBob! smile

Overnight low of 10.3C, reached a top of 22.4C here in Belgrave this arvo. Much warmer and sunnier than yesterday, and winds remained light! Perfect for being out in Mulgrave at lunchtime and later at Boronia. smile

Still a pleasant 19C here at home atm.

Great to hear of the good rainfalls, 63mm tb " grin " sets things up for quite a while !!

Our tanks are about 70-80% full, grass is growing quickly, weather mild, all year round like this would be OK in this camp.

funny reading a few acknowledge the much needed rain to the west of the cbd and how we often miss out. after the storms had died just as they were arriving on saturday i didnt hold much hope for the rain. somehow 40mm fell over the weekend.

Yes like it was at your end out Gippy way Samboz it was a beautiful day here in metropolitan Melbourne! Reached a top of 23.9C here in Belgrave, with plenty of warm sunshine and cooling breezes. Pity about the smoke haze affecting my sinus, but ah well! Still a great arvo down in Boronia. smile

Currently around 14C and a clear, calm, moonlit night. Wondering if there'll be some fog in the morning?

I forgot to mention that yesterday the clouds were just low enough to cling to the ridge of the Yarra Ranges to the northeast, but not to the Dandenong Ranges, Toolangi State Forest, and Kinglake areas.
