Ended with a good shower not long after last post above, it wasn't on the radar.....2.5mm over last couple of days.

MtWell. - seen this morn and a little more snow than few days back, expected more actually.

No frost this morning, cool and sunny though.

Everything saying more dry Highs in front of us, probably to end of month!!

WAS -2.2c this morning..

Everyone will think this Winter is coldest as its not..

We only having coolest winter of few SW westerly winds and less frontal not bring any polar cold winds for cold day time temperature.

High-pressure areas are often associated with settled, dry and bright conditions in winter, clear skies bring cold nights to frost.

Just found out my hot water solar panels burst leaking water...so -2.2c can do more damage.

My post for the past four days from here in Belgrave (I've been so busy lately)...

Wednesday July 19th 2017

Rain: 7.4mm Min: 7.9C Max: 12.1C


Thursday July 20th 2017

Rain: 10.5mm Min: 6.5C Max: 10.2C


Friday July 21st 2017

Rain: 6.3mm Min: 2.2C Max: 15.7C


Saturday July 22nd 2017

Rain: 0mm Min: 6.3C Max: 13.1C


A bit of a mixture of weather over the past days, including today. Quite heavy showers from Tuesday July 18th through to late on Thursday July 20th, thanks to persistent onshore flow during this period, aided and further enhanced by the passage of a cold front on Wednesday July 19th. A few light showers then followed in the wee hours of July 21st. So all up, 24.2mm of rain for that period, which pushes my rainfall total for 62.1mm!! grin

Thursday July 20th was my coldest day for the year so far btw (thank goodness I was indoors at work), and it gave way to a very nippy night on

My post above had too much information removed by accident when I was editing it! poke

Here's the correct version...

My post for the past four days from here in Belgrave (I've been so busy lately)...

Wednesday July 19th 2017

Rain: 7.4mm Min: 7.9C Max: 12.1C


Thursday July 20th 2017

Rain: 10.5mm Min: 6.5C Max: 10.2C


Friday July 21st 2017

Rain: 6.3mm Min: 2.2C Max: 15.7C


Saturday July 22nd 2017

Rain: 0mm Min: 6.3C Max: 13.1C


A bit of a mixture of weather over the past days, including today. Quite heavy showers from Tuesday July 18th through to late on Thursday July 20th, thanks to persistent onshore flow during this period, aided and further enhanced by the passage of a cold front on Wednesday July 19th. A few light showers then followed in the wee hours of July 21st. So all up, 24.2mm of rain for that period, which pushes my rainfall total for 62.1mm!! grin

Thursday July 20th was my coldest day for the year so far btw (thank goodness I was indoors at work), and it gave way to a very nippy night on Friday July 21st, with frost on my car windows! eek

It was very foggy for much of the commute to work on Friday btw, but a calm, cool, crisp and mostly sunny afternoon followed! Only a bit of high cloud moved through late in the day. smile


As for today, it was mostly sunny initially. But cloud increased during the day as a trough moved through, with light showers around mid-afternoon (mostly virga). The skies cleared towards sunset.

Otherwise, the major feature today was the wind. Northerly winds have been strengthening all day long. It's a relatively mild evening out there atm around 10C, but the wind chill has been most unpleasant today! eek

Next cold front closing in on radar and satellite! Love the sight of tomorrow's forecast for Melbourne! Hope it comes off! grin

Min: 8C Max: 16C

Partly cloudy. Medium (60%) chance of showers. The chance of a thunderstorm in the late afternoon and evening. Winds northerly 25 to 35 km/h turning west to northwesterly 15 to 25 km/h in the late morning and afternoon.

Meanwhile in NZ -

"Auckland has dropped from 1012 hPa to 988 hPa in under 24 hours -- guess that makes it "bomb" territory but don't tell the media..."

Overnight low of 9.8C, reached a top of only 14.0C here in Belgrave today. Unsettled, wet and stormy. smile

I was down in Dandenong this morning, between 10am and 1pm. It was dry for most of the time, but overcast; showers started arriving as I travelled home through Rowville, with the rain kinda heavy at times for about 5 minutes!

The weather really deteriorated as the cold front moved into Melbourne after 2pm when I headed down to Narre Warren North for afternoon tea. Some much heavier showers moved through during the drive down, then the rain eased but the sky became incredibly dark and threatening as if a thunderstorm was about to strike! Within minutes of me dashing inside the heavens opened up and the rain really came crashing down, accompanied by strong winds!

The heaviest rains eased after around 20-30 minutes, although a few showers kept coming through until about 3:30-4pm on the cold front's backside as I returned home via Berwick, Harkaway and Narre Warren East. I noticed some very juicy convection bubbling away to the south and southwest btw as the skies started clearing! smile

Only 2.1mm collected from this front, less than what I was expecting given how heavy the rain was. Currently around 10C with mostly clear skies overhead.

Wow - an inch of rain ASF!
We got 1mm with the change (that dropped a pleasant 18.5C back to 13C) late arvo.

Wind here was all prefontal, its been calm since the first drops of "rain" arrived.

Its a significant drought in N Gippsland, thank God its happening mid winter!

Plenty of SM fronts to graze Vic over the next week or so - hopefully a break from the frosts.

Sorry Petros my bad, I thought you were referring to today, I only just realised you were actually talking about over the past seven days. And completely understandable that you're jealous; hope you get some good rain soon.

We got 0.5mm from a snotty change early this morning, followed by a sunny period (17.9C) before lapsing to an overcast near-drizzly late arvo.

Surely a single weather event of interest to us Vic's will soon emerge out of the frosty high pressure repeat sequences we are currently getting hit with.

Overnight low of 7.7C, reached a top of 14.5C here in Belgrave today. A partly cloudy day with sunny breaks but also a few possible showers about. Also breezy too. smile

The wind felt a tad chilly this evening while I was having tennis, but overall it's been quite mild! Currently around 11C.

155.4mm for the year, nearly 7/12ths thru' it, certainly dry here and the Springlike wind is giving indications of arriving.

Nothing on ACCESS for this corner in the next week to get excited about.

Glad to see large areas of Vic getting some good forecasts grin

Lovey sunny of 15c feels like end of August.

Warmth for NSW is a sign that SE Australia will cook up heat in Spring time so only another month left of winter.

Haven't mowed grass round the house for maybe 6 weeks, will settle for the flood any old time it's ready !!!

Reports of decent storm down in Frankston, been NW'ly windy all day here, fine and 20.6 max here - first 20C for "this side" of winter (but expecting up to 22c in similar conditions this coming saturday??

Cloud tops visible in the far western sky here now. Baro steady on 1009 hPa. Would be nice to hear even a distant, thunder rumble in coming hours!

A windy night/mild morning ended up with a snotty windy rainy cold midday/early arvo here today. 3.25mm in my gauge- best one day rain since June 5th!

I guess the benefit will be dryed off in the NW'lies looming for next Saturday???

.....not good for snowfields!

Similar rain here Petros, quite cool this arvo'.

Shower overhead as I type.

ACCESS doesn't back up the BOM forecast of 80% chance of 5-15MM next Tue.
