Some nice wintry weather today, makes you feel alive.

My younger brother wasn't enjoying it as much though.
We think he might have seasonal depression.

Hi everyone ,
I fully understand seasonal depression , that's why I get so upset in the Warm Seasons . Sometimes the meds are not enough but they do help.
Looking and feeling more like the icy night we need for a dusting on Mt Wellington tonight for sure. It's not unusual in the past few years the the first month of Cold Fronts to miss us and push early into Victoria and NSW Highlands. Could be more of chance of receiving more of frontal hit this coming Sunday.

Hi all,

Haven't posted in a while due to being busy with work and other things.

Definitely felt like one of them wintery days WL, your sort of weather! grin Was very fresh working in Sorell with that Southwesterly blowing right off Pitt Water!

Had 7.4mm to 9am Sunday morning and 11mm in total the past four mornings, 0.6mm since 9 this morning, max temp of 12.2C with the Southwesterly gusting up to 49 km/h today, sure made for a taste of winter. frown

Icy night, last of the veggies were crispy frozen this morning. Temp dropped to a chilly April low of -1.4. Back yard was white despite the relatively long, damp grass.

Morning all

Not quite as cool as Snowies here. Minimum of 0 with light frost.

Yesterday was very much a taste of winter with a max of just 8 and a few very light hail showers through the day.

Hey all smile

Got my world all shaken up out of it's slothness yesterday.

Boss wants to close the Bathurst branch of this business (that Fiona & I manage) and move us to Orange (approx 60km away).

Has unsettled my world. On one hand I like Orange (was born there but never lived there) it's at 900m, snows etc. Is a good town.

However - I'm sick of moving!!!

And get this reason to close the branch - we are too successful and the company can't handle the number of sheds we sell. We don't have enough builders and it is killing us with build times blowing out too far to recover from.

If we move though - Orange is a good town smile

Good luck with managing that DM...never fun when ones world gets tipped upside down. One solution is to sell less sheds... there must be a optimal number. As you say Orange is not a bad place to go, if you have to go. 900m! Nearly up to the chalet in elevation, be a degree or two cooler in summer!

You can do it mate! I'm sure you could give the local branch a rev!

Once you get over The Rocks hill you're as good as here!

You'll enjoy the extra 200m. cool

Only one thing: don't bring that damn rain shield with you! mad

Look out O/R - I might just be coming your way smile

PS - O/R - not common knowledge (at all) re the branch yet. As you're a local (up this way) I'd appreciate it staying that way for a while smile

Cheers Dan - we've dealt with a lot of change in our time, will do it again smile

No worries. Btw I have no idea which 'branch' we are talking about anyway. Just an abstract term (for me).

Yeah i can empathize with it as well.
I'm just the opposite to my brother.
While i do enjoy some nice sunny warm weather here and there.
Once i becomes prolonged i do become a bit down and frustrated.

Which is why i could never live somewhere with a warm mono-climate.
I need my 4 distinct seasons lol

Well happy Friday all,
Yet another warm April 19 c day here in Hobart and at 10:00 pm tonight still sitting near 17 c. So the Highs just keep rolling through and any hint of a cooling Autumn or sniff of Winter approaching still seems a long way off.
The news doesn't get any more encouraging with the first day of May set to top yet another 20 c Indian Summer day.
I've just had to put on the ceiling fan to cool the room down so I can get some sleep :0

Morning everyone,

Not a cloud in the sky this morning, heading for a sunny top of 19C, cool overnight with the temp dipping down to 3.3C.

Was cold Thursday morning with a minimum temp the same as snowies, -1.4C! No rain to speak of the last couple mornings.

Should see some pre-frontal cloud stream over later on ahead of this approaching cold front, looks like well see some white stuff on the mountain down here Tuesday morning! grin

Currently a sunny 12.3C with a 14 km/h southwesterly.

Afternoon all,
Looks like it topped out so far here at 19.5 c and a bit cooler in town. As BB mentioned not a cloud anywhere , and BB that certainly is a chilly night out your way. No such luck by the Derwent with an inversion effect the last few nights with temps still around 15 c or so around midnight.
I just watched ABC Landline with the BOM wrap up for May to July outlook , well the news is not good with Tassie looking like being warm and also dry. The April wrap also confirmed that temps have been well above average for this area of Tas.
The good news was for PS up that way the rainfall seemed to be above average by the map they showed , a nice little 100 km blue square bang over the Burnie area.
Anyways they also now have an El Nino watch so that is no surprise smile

Ended up another 20 c degree day to finish the month. So May starts the way it's been for us once again another 20 c ?? day well over the 14.5 c it should be . Only Tuesday is looking anywhere near that with the next 10 days looking the same old story , bloody warm. It would not surprise to see a few fires spring up tomorrow with warm to hot windy conditions and a very dry vegetation.

Hobart 17 degrees now (about 9.30 am) is VERY warm, however, obviously in a solid warm NW airstream that will cool later today. Tomorrow will be much cooler.

Then a return to temps 4 or so degrees above the May average for a number of days. Similar thing to what we have up here as well. We though won't cool as much as you guys when the change comes through. My coolest day this week will be about 16 against of your 12 tomorrow.

I suspect you will be under more wind as well (as usual).

Morning all

4mm in the gauge this morning

Maximum yesterday of 14 and a minimum of 10.5 overnight. Currently sitting on 12. Considering the wind and rain!

Pretty ordinary sort of a day here, 20-30kts NW with showers.

Looking at radar we are about to get hit by the cold front rapidly moving in. http://www.bom.gov.au/products/IDR523.loop.shtml#skip

Bit behind with the stats for the last couple of months. Rainfall, average temps etc. Should get the chance with this weather (inside by the fire) and will post them when i can. smile

Must find the time to keep an eye on the models with winter fast approaching. In the meantime, loving the forecast for snow to 600m tonight/tomorrow morning. smile

DM, good luck with your move. Aren't you heading in the wrong direction?
