Knot- nah it should just stay around that mid 20's mark with seabreezes for our areas. Definitely high 20's and even 30's is a probability all week in western NSW though.

I still have a gut feel that winter will be cold and good for snow events, but who knows I could be wrong. Anyway I wouldn't worry yet, it's only mid April so there's plenty of time for some juicy cold fronts mate. smile

Hi again guys. Much warmer weather across the Upper Murray today, perfect for taking an afternoon drive north across the Murray River from Corryong, Northeast Victoria out to Tumbarumba, NSW. smile

Not sure what today's low and high were for here in Corryong, but this morning it dipped to 5.6C out at Khancoban, and 3.4C at Tumbarumba. Khancoban managed to climb to about 24C this arvo, with Tumbarumba getting to about 20-21C.

No visible frost, fog, or mist this morning. Bucket loads of sunshine (again the Sun felt hot, but there was a bit of a pleasant cooling breeze), although cloud increased from the west during the afternoon. I noted some bubbly convection behind the NSW Snowy Mountains late in the afternoon (in the direction of Lake Eucumbene, Adaminaby, and Cooma), but no shower or thunderstorm activity in that area on the Canberra (Captains Flat) radar.

Again very hazy, with smoke from burn-offs still happening in the Shelley/Koetong region to the west, and again from new control burns that have commenced in the Cudgewa valley area.

Despite the haze and increasing cloudcover, we were treated to a beautiful sunset! smile

Some stunning autumn colours in and around Tumbarumba, and in nearby Maragle and Tooma! Here's a sample of what I saw: https://www.instagram.com/p/BS-wz6Qh8DQ/?taken-by=aussiestormfreak

I also got to see a small amount of snow (yes snow) on the top of the northwest-facing side of the Kosciuszko ridge! Only a couple of patches that have survived this extended warm, dry spell after the recent cold, rainy, stormy weather, but the first taste of the coming winter and snow season nonetheless. smile

Another cold night ahead, currently around 8C here in Corryong, but 13C out at Khancoban. Sad to be returning to Melbourne tomorrow, but glad I've had a great Easter here, and that there'll be more warmth on the homeward journey! smile

I drove up to the Central Coast late this morning. It was another clear, sunny morning in Sydney after a coolish start - about 12 - 14 degrees.

As I headed North I saw heavy, bubbly cumulus clouds to the East and North. It was quite cloudy on the M1/F3 and partly cloudy but mostly sunny at Forresters Beach. Pleasantly warm with light winds, it was perfect holiday weather to finish a long weekend. For once Sydney has had a rainless Easter.

As I was driving home around 5:30PM there was high cirrus cloud drifting in from the West, givis us a beautiful light pink / light blue sunset. Unfortunately it wasn't possible to take a picture.

Surprisingly, the last dry Easter was only 3 years ago back in 2014 with the 19th to 22nd April not recording any rain.

But was it as perfect as this one?
Besides a few periods of cloudiness yesterday afternoon and this afternoon, this Easter has been just lovely. Temps perfect and little wind.
It's been a most gorgeous 4 day holiday weekend.

Amendment to my last post...

I just stepped outside to have a look at the moon, and it's actually not as cold as I thought it would be here in Corryong!

Tonight's low is forecast to be a chilly 7C, but thankfully the cloudcover is keeping the temperature at a relatively mild 13C for the time being. smile

Sorry for the mistake. I wasn't thinking straight because of my sinus, no thanks to the burn-off smoke. frown

I don't think so, but I can't really remember. For the record yesterday was not that great here. Being near the escarpment we had heaps of low cloud above all day. Still a better four days than any other Easter I remember.

But today... Perfectly sunny, calm and 23C right now.

Another beautiful sunny day here after a fairly warm night. Sydney's 'mini drought' continues into its 6th day.

I thought I would check out past Easters in Sydeny to see how the meme that Easter is always wet in Sydney holds up. Certainly, in my memory of the Royal Easter Show, for example, it always seems to be raining.

Rainfall at Easter (taken as 5-day period from 9:00:01 Thursday to 9:00:00 Tuesday) at OH in recent years:

Code:
Year    Easter    Total    Rain 
        Sunday    Rain     Days

2010	Apr-04	   8.8	    3
2011	Apr-24	  22.4      3
2012	Apr-08	   6.4      1
2013	Mar-31	   5.8	    2
2014	Apr-20     0.0	    0
2015	Apr-05	  46.4      4
2016	Mar-27	  35.0	    2
2017	Apr-16	   0.0	    0


So, for this small sample, which I think is reasonably typical for Sydney, 5/7 Easters recorded some rain. Two were quite wet and two were dry. On none did it rain every day (in that 5 day period). I can recall that on the evening of Easter Sunday in 2012, a spectacular thunderstorm on an otherwise fine Easter break marked the end of a cool but fairly stormy Summer.

Overall, there was some rain on 15 of the 40 easter holiday days, equivalent to 11.3 days out of 30. This is a little below the average rain days totals at OH for April (12.9/30) and March (13.6/31). The total rainfall over those day, at 125mm, is close to the April average of 129mm, although that is only over 30 days.

So basically, in recent years, Easter has been slightly dry for the time of year.

Ocean temperatures in Illawarra still hanging inthere rather nice over Easter. I think they have come down a degree or two, but still the correct side(+) of 20C.

Hit the water everyday. Made the mistake of wearing the wetsuit on Saturday as there was a cool offshore breeze early, as soon as it dropped I was in the cooking zone, so back the boardies and rashie next 2 days.

Looks like a bit of action headed towards me at Cooks Gap at the moment. Will be interesting to see if it makes it this far.

Sure has been a good run. Yesterday it was a nice warm up during the day and the cloud came just in time at dusk to trap the heating making for a mild night. Might get the same tonight with some high cloud drifting over the state. Forecast looks good for more of the same.

Back from O/S this morning from overnight flight, glorious day, coming back from Sydney Airport all the way to the Hunter, along with the obligatory stop at the twin servos and Maccas at Wyong.
This is the type of autumn weather I like to associate with. (and a whole week of 12-14C minimums and 24-25C maximums coming up, spot on for autumn)

Loc: Melbourne (Belgrave); Corryong...
Hi guys. I'm back home in Belgrave, having returned to Melbourne from Corryong about two hours' ago. Here's my report for today. smile

The main thing to report about was the weather, which was actually a lot more interesting than I expected! Even the temperature varied a lot on the homeward journey. smile

In Corryong, the low was about 7C this morning, with an afternoon top of about 26C. Perfect!

Leaving Corryong at about 2:30pm it was about 23C, dropping down to 21C at Shelley and Koetong further west. Mostly sunny skies, although very, very hazy.

By the time we drove past Tallangatta it had warmed back up to 23C, and it it almost-completely stayed that way until we reached Beechworth just after 4pm for afternoon tea. The only exception was a "hot spot" in the Kiewa/Tangambalanga area near Albury/Wodonga, where the thermometer managed to hit 26C!! shocked

Shortly after 5:15pm, we departed Beechworth. The temperature dropped down a few notches to about 19C at Tarrawingee. Increasing high cloud from the west combined with the smoke haze to produce a brief but beautiful sunset over the Warby Ranges, timed perfectly for our southbound run down the M31 Hume Freeway (Melbourne-Sydney) at Wangaratta! smile

The temperature struggled back up to 21-22C west of Glenrowan, before falling back to 19C when we arrived in Benalla at 6pm for dinner. I noted some faint fog/mist in some of the paddocks outside town, especially in Winton.

At 7pm, we drove south on the Midland Highway from Benalla. It was pitch-dark, with mostly clear skies overhead, and virtually no wind! No sign of the moon either, so a perfect chance to see the stars until we edged closer to Melbourne's light pollution. Most of the high cloud I saw at sunset had broken up. smile

It was during this final leg of the road trip that the temperature really went crazy! Lol read on please...

Firstly it was 17-18C by the time we left Benalla, but it dropped sharply as we headed further south. At Swanpool it was 13-14C, falling to 12C as we passed Lake Nillahcootie, and finally at Maindample (west of Mansfield) it had bottomed at 9C!! eek

It warmed back up to 12C at Bonnie Doon on the shores of Lake Eildon, then dropped again to 9C at Merton, climbed up to 13C at Yarck, and then fell back slightly to 12C when we reached Yea at about 8:30pm for a quick toilet break.

Heading south on the Melba Highway towards Melbourne, it was 11C in the Yea River Valley (including Murrindindi and Glenburn). In Castella (the air was heavy and rank with the putrid stench of burn-off smoke here btw) it briefly nudged 12C, but then suddenly plunged to 9C as we drove downhill into the Yarra Valley and Melbourne metropolitan area!

Between Dixons Creek and Lilydale, the temperature fluctuated between 9C and 11C, and we drove through surprisingly heavy fog in Yarra Glen and Yering, but it was all clear beyond Coldstream. We finally entered the Melbourne metropolitan area just after 9pm.

From Lilydale onwards, the temperature fluctuated even more! It climbed to 13-14C between Mount Evelyn and Monbulk (our last stop to buy groceries), then dipped to 9C in Kallista and The Patch. The rest of the way home to Belgrave it warmed back up to 14C.

Other things worth mentioning:

1. Lots of burn-offs seen today, especially in Cudgewa and again in the Shelley/Koetong region.

2. Still plenty of lovely autumn colours up in Northeast Victoria, including in Corryong, Shelley, Yackandandah, and Beechworth.

3. Also as a surprise treat, I got to see some nice bubbly convection with showers and thunderstorms scattered along the NSW Snowy Mountains from as far south as the Dalgety/Bombala area to as far north as the Brindabella region between Tumut and Canberra! grin

Unfortunately the storms were heading north, looked weak on radar, and I only got to see them as I was leaving Corryong. But still they were impressive, with the best cells being between Tumut and Canberra btw. smile

Back here in Belgrave, it's about 13C at the last check.

Looking forward to my next trip to Northern Victoria and NSW/ACT soon. Take care gang! smile

Anzac Day itself forecast for around mid 20s temps, still quite warmish.
Often turns after it though, although some recent years have had hot temps in the last week of April as well.
Today heading for 24C locally, a bit of cloud cover, and may take a while to get there by the looks. (certainly cooler than yesterday)

Donzah - indeed the heavy high is not making any room at all for any uppity cold fronts!!!

Still - around here, Autumn tends to be mostly benign with only the occasional bit of action.

Nights have gone close to a frost at home (indeed someone at Eglinton, not far from me) had icing on Sunday.

Rob G has had a frost.

Perhaps next week is when mine will come. We had a 3 this morning and a 2.5 on Monday so we're not far away.

Yeah, a lack of anything spectacular, but the stability of mid Autumn once the real heat is gone, is a big plus to get things done outside.
