Had light persistent showers from 3am onwards today till breakfast, a couple of light arvo showers added to the tally to give us 6.5mm.

Pretty much a cloudy mild calm day here today, with a bit of SW'ly breeze under the arvo showers. Baro has bottomed out at 1014 hPa here. Calm at present.

Looks like us Central Gippslanders will wake to a "snotty winter morning" tomorrow??

...maybe I should change my mid week sporting endevours to indoor carpet bowls!

Yep already dreading it! Work outside, and no being rained off, so going to be cold and soggy! Hoping no storms, with hail and 100kph gusts, as any, or all would suck!

Ground around surf coast areas, haven't yet stopped draining off, since the last two events previous to yesterday. Haven't seen this much rain since the mid 90's.

Had about 30 minutes worth of sunshine before sunset, too late to warm the temperature up much though but never mind. smile

Currently around 12-13C.

Skies remained mostly clear well past nightfall, but it's now clouding over, winds are starting to pick up, and we had the odd spit of rain a short while ago. That shower/storm line out in the bay looks fast-moving and heavy; it should hit us in about an hour's time!

The main cold front is now moving into the far corner of SE South Australia, and will spread quickly into Victoria overnight. Expect conditions to deteriorate quickly overnight.

Barometric pressure at 1005hPa.

Edit: storm front's intensifying!

Another 26mm added to our April's rain fall - now over 100mm (106) and so close to our highest recorded April average 126mm - can't see the record being broken but damn we've had two months in a row above average rainfall and I'm sure the three month forecast was for below average rainfall and above average temps - they got half right.
I was motocycle touring this weekend and was on top of Hotham this morning and it was not fun coming down the mountain in that weather - cold, wet and foggy, visibility was less than 50m, a scary ride down for me - I've not ridden under those conditions before

We have had a few good dumps already, this evening, only light cloud on satellite, but be a few mm already, and temps just starting to drop more. That front, intensifying, will be wild.

That was pretty wild! The "bay effect" gave the storm line a real energy boost! Just before 10pm it struck Belgrave, unleashing a 10 minute downpour. The rain was really loud, and it sounded like it was being lashed by strong winds! =D

The rain stopped altogether after about 20 minutes or so. Peak rainfall rate from the storm was 62mm/hr, with another 5.3mm collected, so 10.6mm since 9am. smile

The temperature peaked at 13.6C just before the storm hit, now it's down to 11.9C.

The front is now moving into Southwest Victoria and is really packing a punch!

Overnight low of 9.0C, still currently around 9C. This cold weather is a real shock to the system! eek

The front hit here around 3:30am. We've had heavy showers and thunderstorms for much of the morning. Heard only a couple of rumbles of thunder, but otherwise we've had more heavy rain.

Another 14.7mm since midnight, so 25.3mm in the 24 hours to 9am. Nearly at 100mm for April 2017 smile

Can thank the bay effect for that Samboz! This April has been unreal in terms of rainfall. Some locations recording their highest April rain in decades. Forgot to mention Waratah Bay also recording 60 mm of rain in Monday night's trough passing.

RE the storm that passed here early there are reports on the emergency website showing multiple accounts of storm/flooding damage in a line from St Kilda to Mill Park

Reached a top of only 15.1C here in Belgrave today; the Sun came out around 10:30am.

I was out in Boronia between 11am and 4pm. The weather was cold with a mix of Sun and rain, with frequent showers (locally heavy) brushing the landscape. No thunderstorms or hail though. Quite windy at times too, especially along Glenfern Road in Ferntree Gully!

Collected only another 1.1mm since 9am. Hoping for more rain overnight and in the next couple of days, just need more cold air and for winds to veer more directly southwesterly.

Currently around 8C.

Tassie shielded this region from the weather Melbourne experienced, .....but certainly was not a nice day for golf here!

..so 11.25mm rain here past 48 hrs smile

The temperature's dropped sharply over the past couple of hours, already my coldest night for April 2017 (and for the year to date), currently 6.1C but could easily drop further! poke

Wish we were under those showers that are heading north through the main Melbourne metropolitan area to our west. frown

Cooler y'day and a beautiful April morning of clear skies sun and no wind here.

Only 5.5mm out of event plus a shower overnight. Still doing well from this Autumn weather, grass growing very nicely.

Some snow visible on Mt Wellington this morning, not a big cover and no doubt much more y'day but covered in cloud all day.

Overnight low of 6.1C, currently around 9C and mostly cloudy.

Collected 5.3mm of rain in the 24 hours to 9am, with the showers resuming here in Belgrave around 11:30pm last night.

More showers coming up from the south, only need 2mm extra to reach 100mm! smile

ASF Is that 100 mm for the event? If so we are ditto in the amount of rain! (Also on 98 mm here in the past 3 days) Up to 145 mm for the month here too which is just phenomenal.

We have been perfectly placed in a convergence zone with constant showers coming up in a SSW stream from the bay.

Not going to lie, I am quite keen for some sun!

Lol no, it's 98mm for the month Hunter1890. Sorry I failed to mention that. poke

Reached a top of 16.8C here in Belgrave today, noticeably sunnier milder than the past couple of days but still damp and chilly with the odd shower.

Currently around 12C.
