Lol IKR Petros!

Reached a warm top of 27.4C here in Belgrave today. A mixture of cloudy and sunny periods throughout the day, but no rain. Not much wind either. smile

A great day for being outside, except for smoke from burn-off activity. frown mad

Currently around 18C. smile

Looks to be some showers on radar moving eastwards along Victoria's Southwest Coast. Hoping for some more rain here in Melbourne! smile

Near 30C here today, a wannabee storm chance is passing eastwards along the ranges to our north.

Chunky Cj along the Strezleckiis to our S as well - was it supposed to be stormy tonight?

Overnight low of 16.8C, reached a nice hot 32.3C here in Belgrave this arvo. A mix of sun and cloud, looked unstable but didn't deliver... until now, well sort-of. smile

Some nice bubbly convection about the place, particularly to the southeast, but it's struggling in vane to gain much height. So my shower/thunderstorm chances don't appear flash this evening, time will tell though; wish some of that activity over Melbourne's north would pass over. frown

Otherwise, a muggy but pleasant night ahead. Currently around 25C. smile

There was just enough wind to clear the air of the horrid burn-off smoke btw. smile

Might have to eat my words here! I know sunset hasn't quite happened yet, but in the last 10 minutes or so it's become extremely dark! Maybe a shower or thunderstorm brewing? smile

Edit: just started raining a couple of minutes ago. smile

Overnight low of 7.5C, currently around 12C and sunny. smile

Pity that smoke haze is in the forecast, as that's no good for my sinuses. But apart from that, looking forward to a week of glorious mid-autumn weather, starting today! smile

Yet another glorious day here in Belgrave, with a top of 28.4C. Warm, hazy and mostly sunny, with some high cloud sailing overhead from the west after lunchtime, and bubbly cumulus about the place. Felt kinda hot in the sun, but there was a nice cooling breeze. smile

And as usual, towards sunset the temperature dropped sharply! Currently around 15C.

Reached a lovely, warm, mostly sunny 29.0C here in Belgrave today. The Sun felt kinda hot, but there was a pleasant breeze. smile

Very hazy though. poke

Perfect for being out in Boronia, the City, Surrey Hills and Wheelers Hill for much of the day! smile

At the last check it was around 24C.

Indeed, coming back in from Lilydale the sky had a bright orange hue, which i'm guessing is from the haze.

To me, it looks like a gloomy breezey potentially drizzly Easter for areas in Vic's South?

Fines up next Easter Monday onwards?

Hey g'day gang! Reporting from Corryong, Northeast Victoria. smile

My family and I left our home in Belgrave a little before 2pm yesterday, but because we had to do some things to buy at Bayswater, it took about an hour to reach Lilydale and to leave the Melbourne metropolitan area.

We faced heavy traffic going north up the Melba Highway until our next stop in Yea at about 3:30pm. Most of the traffic thankfully turned east towards Lake Eildon, leaving us with a good run northwest along the Goulburn Valley Highway to Seymour, where we did yet more shopping lol.

Just after 4:30pm, we headed northbound up the M31 Hume Freeway (Melbourne-Sydney).

Around 5:30pm, we had afternoon tea at the Mokoan Rest Area in Winton, near Benalla.

Roughly 45 minutes later we did some final shopping in Wangaratta, and by around 7:15pm we arrived at the Border (Albury/Wodonga). It was nice being able to cross the Murray River into NSW/ACT again, even if it was only for about 5-10 minutes. smile

Following dinner, we continued east along the Murray Valley Highway. By 9:30pm we made it safely into Corryong.


Weatherwise, yesterday was nothing other than perfect! Mid-autumn at its finest. grin

Light winds and plenty of mostly clear blue skies with warm sunshine, although there were a few sporadic cumulus as far north as Yea, and a bit of high cirrus sailing across the northern horizon. Also some bubbly cumulus beyond Mount Buffalo, but no shower/storm activity on radar. The night stayed mostly clear as well, with plenty of stars and a bright near-full moon! smile

Virtually the whole way from home until sunset (6pmish) at Winton, temperatures were around 22-24C. The lone exception was at Castella (near Kinglake and Toolangi), where the elevation caused the temperature to drop a few notches to 21C.

It stayed around 20C as far as Wangaratta, but the mercury started to drop as it got darker and we headed northeast. It was around 17-18C in Albury/Wodonga.

Leaving the Border just after 8pm, the temperature continued falling. At Tallangatta it was about 13-14C, and at Bullioh it was 11-!2C.

Up at Shelley, it was a chilly 9C. Initially the temperature started climbing as we drove downhill, but after hitting 11C it abruptly dropped back to 9C in the Berringama/Beetoomba/Lucyvale area! eek crazy

From Cudgewa up until Corryong the temperature rose back to 11C.

The only major deterrent was the usual autumnal burn-offs and the associated smoke haze. During the drive north from Melbourne through the Yarra Valley, we noted smoke billowing from a control burn in the Noojee region to the southeast.

Once out on the Hume beyond Seymour, the whole northern horizon was a dirty brown haze from numerous blazes scattered across the Northern Plains (a couple of which were burning quite close by near Euroa and Benalla) and into the Riverina region of Southern NSW. A few of the fires featured pyrocumulus btw. Thank goodness the smoke largely stayed well clear of us, otherwise I'd probably have major sinus problems! frown

On the plus side, the smoke served to provide a beautiful sunset at Winton! Here's a smartphone pic I snapped at the Lake Mokoan Rest Area! smile

Immediately after leaving the rest area at sunset, a fine mist began to form as we headed towards Glenrowan and Wangaratta.

And here was patchy fog in Berringama!

Still mostly dry vegetation, although the recent heavy rainfall has turned some paddocks green around Yea and Seymour. smile

Lastly, there was an abundance of autumn colours on the way here! Hopefully there's lots more autumn colours here in town and in the surrounding area. smile

Reached a maximum of 27.8C on my weather station back home in Belgrave just before we left for Corryong, although I doubt it was actually that warm lol.

Currently around 9C here in the Upper Murray.

Tomorrow I'll get the BOM observations for yesterday's road trip. smile

Today was absolutely glorious across the Upper Murray! It dawned nippy and misty, but the mist cleared soon after the sun rose beyond the NSW Snowy Mountains. By 11am it warmed up very quickly, and the afternoon was perfect for being outside. Winds were generally light although there was a coolish, gusty breeze at times, and the sun felt kinda hot for a while! Hardly a cloud in the sky, and very little smoke haze. smile

It dipped to 4.2C here in Corryong, and 4.7C out at Khancoban. Not sure the exact high, but according to my Weatherzone smartphone app it reached around 23C this arvo. smile

Some nice autumn colours around town atm, although there are plenty of trees that are still green lol. poke

Currently around 15C. Another cold night ahead but more warm sunshine tomorrow, and again on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday! smile

I jest emptied out 0.5mm from yesterdays drizzly late morning change. Cleared to a calm mild partly sunny arvo here today with plenty of smoke haze around these parts.

Hi guys. smile

Yesterday was almost a carbon copy of Thursday and Friday's weather here in the Upper Murray. A touch cooler today though, but after a nippy night it was another beautiful day! smile

Reached around 21C here in Corryong. I'm unsure what the low was, but it was 4.1C out at Khancoban, NSW. Hardly a cloud in the sky; again the sun felt kinda hot but there was a cooling breeze. smile

The only mist I saw at dawn was way off in the distance, although it might've been haze.

Also, a great deal of smoke drifting southeastwards from a couple of control burns in Shelley and Koetong to the west during the afternoon.

Another nippy night coming up, around 7C at the last check! But more warm, sunny weather ahead tomorrow afternoon. smile

Btw, Khancoban reached a top of 23.4C on Friday.
