It seems that July 26 is a day for wild weather events! I seem to remember a couple of July 26ths have been wild like this! I remember the most epic of days on the 18th July 2013.

Looks like Melbourne could reach 25 on Saturday and 26C would not be impossible. That would smash its current record of 23.1 in 1975.

Where do you see that Waverider? Low 20's maybe I'm guessing, but 25C?

00z GFS is going 17C at 925mb over Melb at 4pm Saturday which would probably equate to 25C at the surface, but maybe only 24 in this situation because of the very low pressure so 925mb is lower in elevation than usual.

That's at this stage though. The timing of the change is crucial. If it's pushed a few hours forward then low 20's or less than 20 it will be.

I thought Melbourne's record July high was 23.3C, set on July 18th 2013, someone confirm this please?

Certainly looks like a potentially major winter storm on the way for Southern Australia this weekend, with an exceptionally powerful northerly airflow strengthening across Victoria ahead of a deep surge of cold polar air from Antarctica; the blue line pushes deep into NSW/ACT on Sunday! Currently going for 19C for Melbourne and 28C for Mildura on Saturday!! Could be some very dangerous gales about btw! eek

Today's been almost springlike for sure. Overnight low of 10.1C, my warmest night this winter so far and my first 10C+ night since May 27th when we dipped to 10.9C. Reached a rather mild top of 18.2C here in Belgrave today! smile

A blustery, stormy day to sum it up. It was mostly clear at dawn, with a beautiful sunrise over the Dandenong Ranges and Yarra Valley as I caught the train to work in Box Hill. By 9am it was getting cloudy and we had showers and the odd storm roll through.

The rest of the day was a partly cloudy with sunny breaks. But by 3pm I noticed convection flaring away to the southwest. Over the next three hours a huge wall of cumulonimbus storm clouds could be seen getting closer. By 5pm it started getting very dark, with the impending storm catching the sunset just before 5:30pm! smile

The thunderstorm finally struck at about 6pm! We had roughly 10-20 minutes of loud thunder, infrequent but spectacular lightning, strong wind and heavy rainfall. Good thing the storm cleared just as quickly as it came; the stars were out when I left work for home around 6:30pm.

The trains were delayed by about 10 minutes because of the weather btw.

Back home, the storm was just as intense here as it was at work! The peak rainfall rate was 15mm/hr, with 3.2mm collected.

Currently around 11C.

Weatherzone said 23.1 in July 1975, but yes you're right about the date because when I checked Climate Data Online after you mentioned it, it said the record was actually 23.8 at Olympic Park on July 18th 2013.

Even then, it will probably still get beaten on Saturday.

We are sick of upper low doesn't want go inland SE Australia as always jumps and grow stronger over Tasmania sea to New Zealand.

Yesterday was very warm of 19c and i would be surprise if strong NW wind this weekend bring spring like warmth to most Victoria.

Today nice of 15c

Current AccR shows significant divergence of the strong NW'ly gale as it crosses the divide then exits over Gippsland/E Gippsland on Saturday.

This wind might stay substantially aloft??? - Bet we hear a fair bit about the "Riviera" on the media Saturday evening!

I've very busy lately yet again, but here's my daily weather posts from here in Belgrave:

Wednesday July 26th 2017
Low: 8.4C High: 14.6C Rain: 3.2mm

Following the rather springlike conditions the day before (mild and breezy with spectacular thunderstorms at sunset), it was cold, wet and windy with sunshine alternating with showers. The heaviest shower activity occurred around midday - quite a decent band of activity, looked almost like a string of storms - with conditions clearing during the afternoon and evening.

I noticed a few beautiful rainbows as the band of showers at lunchtime swept through btw, but pity I was stuck in work at Box Hill so I couldn't get any photos. frown


Thursday July 27th 2017
Low: 5.1C High: 14.5C Rain: 1mm

A borderline nippy morning, although I was expecting it to get much colder, probably to about 2-3C with possible frost. On the contrary it was breezy with winds out of the north, which explains for the lack of frost and fog, but the breeze had a most unpleasant chill to it. frown

I left home for work around 6:30am. It was mostly clear at first but high cloud started arriving from the northwest as last night's cold front approached; the clouds were tinged pink and yellow between Ringwood and Mitcham around 7:15am, with the sun rising over Melbourne 15 minutes later. smile

Cloud increased throughout the day and it became quite blustery. I left Box Hill for home at 5:30pm, and the skies briefly cleared but it then turned cloudy once more. I reached home by about 6:45pm and about an hour later I left for Dandenong; by this time it started raining.

The weather really worsened during the evening as the front moved into Melbourne; the whole time I was in Dandenong it was windy and the rain was quite heavy, making the drive home after 10:30pm a bit nerve-wracking; no thunderstorms though! eek


Friday July 28th 2017
Low: 6.9C High: 15.6C Rain: 10.6mm

The front moved struck our area at about 12:30am, accompanied by squally winds and heavy showers. A few showers followed during the morning but thankfully the worst of the weather had cleared by the time I left home for work at 6:30am. smile

Still a chilly start to today, with some beautiful sunlit coldie cumulonimbus rolling through Melbourne's southeast suburbs and Mornington Peninsula (plus Phillip and French Islands and the Bass Coast) around mid-morning. Pity I couldn't get any pics from my workplace in Box Hill. frown

The low stratocumulus and cumulus that followed in the colder air behind last night's cold front gradually cleared as the day progressed as winds started swinging back northerly ahead of the impending major winter storm now over the Bight! smile

High cloud started arriving from the northwest around midday, increasing and thickening by mid-afternoon, although I got to enjoy some wonderful mid-winter sunshine for roughly 10 minutes during one of my breaks around 4pm. It was only around 15-16C in Box Hill (15.5C at Bulleen) but thanks to the relatively gentle northerly winds and abundant sunshine the air felt noticeably mild, almost springlike. No windcheater needed!! grin

Remarkably still out there, chilly but not nippy. Also a very dense veil of mid-level and high-level hanging overhead, with the moon reduced to a mere faint smudge. Currently around 10C with the barometer reading 1014hPa.


Hard to believe that tomorrow's going to be a very stormy day with dangerous gales! Good thing I'm able to stay at home. smile

Overnight low of 9.8C, reached a rather mild top of 17.7C here in Belgrave today. Very windy with howling northerly gales for the majority of the day, with the first strong gusts arriving around 12:30am last night. Pity my wind vane has been out of action since last spring! frown

We briefly lost power at least three times today, once earlier this morning and the other two times within about 1 minute of each other around 2.5 hours ago.

It's been mostly sunny up until around 2:30pm, and now it's getting cloudy. Currently around 16C.

With 18.4C here, Orbost 19.3C and 20.6C at Wilsons Promontory earlier, yes we might hear a fair bit on the media, but Sunday perhaps?

Wind come up and gusting from the N/N/E here, strengthening.

Feels almost like the kind of weather we get at night following a warm, windy day in September ahead of a cold front! Since sunset it's been hovering around 16C here in Belgrave; the wind makes it feel a couple of degrees cooler though! crazy eek


The winds have eased off a bit now, but still quite blustery. Also still mostly cloudy (but we've had glimpses of blue sky and sunshine this arvo, and I've been able to see the stars at times this evening) with light rain; most of the showers are being shredded by the wind, as is often the case during these sorts of weather events. It usually takes a vigorous convective setup (such as a severe thunderstorm outbreak, including supercells, squall lines, etc) for us to receive heavy rainfall in conjunction with such high northerly winds.

The fact that the Laverton radar is out of action and we're relying on the Melbourne Airport radar isn't helping either. Too hard to tell if the frontal band survived beyond the Southwest Coast (and neighbouring Southeast SA) and will bring any useful rain to Melbourne overnight. frown

I wanted to further amend my above post but ran out of time. Oh well. poke

Anyway...

Were it not for the incoming cold front, I'd expect tonight would end up being my hottest July night ever. The current record is 14.5C on July 22nd 2016.

Depending on the front's arrival time that record may be beaten, but we'll see... smile

17.9 was the high for Melbourne. EC never had it higher than 17 to 18 range and was pretty much spot on. Here at my house the high was 11.7c at 1115pm last night hasn't made it back to 11 today yet.
0.6mm of rain yesterday evening which has produced red muddy spots on the gauges.

Edit: Up to 11.8c when I wasn't looking

Showers this arvo added another 0.5mm to the 0.5mm we got in last nights showers.

Another mild day, it got to 20.6C under some of the sunny periods despite the persistent westerly. Working outside, it was one of those T shirt/Jumper/Raincoat afternoons.

3 months in a row at < 20mm/month for N Gippy.

We've been able to burn out old stumps here at Royal Maffra for several weeks now.

Overnight low of 11.1C (my warmest night for July 2017), reached a high of 16.3C here in Belgrave today.

In general, it was a partly cloudy day with lengthy sunny breaks. Also a few spits of rain; it looked unstable, convective and stormy at times but the only heavy showers and thunderstorms I saw today were over toward Healesville during the late afternoon.

Otherwise, in spite of the wind and the clouds it was quite a mild day! Less blustery than Saturday thankfully. Perfect for being down in Dandenong and later in Narre Warren North. smile

Currently around 6C.

Good rain over S NSW today, some of the (NW'ly originated) cloud sagged down into N Gippy this morning providing an unexpected 0.75mm from showers. Cells midday seemed very close to becoming storms.

I'm sure I'm not the only one feeling that the season has turned back to typical winter weather over the past week or so?

Overnight low of 6.1C, reached a top of 17.6C here in Belgrave today. A gloriously mostly sunny last day of July 2017, such a shame I was stuck indoors at work in Box Hill for much of the time. smile

Kinda hazy earlier today. I noticed a huge veil of high cloud off to the northeast this morning on my way to work, thanks to the ECL now off the NSW coastline. Otherwise plenty of bubbly convection about the north, south and east from late-morning through to late-afternoon with showers and maybe the odd thunderstorm. smile

A nippy night coming up, currently around 5C. Looking forward to my favourite month of winter, AUGUST!!! =D

Sorry I haven't been around much recently as most of you know I enjoy summer weather a lot more than Winter. Anyway I am now located in Moorabbin and conducting full time flight training smile. Such a lovely morning for flying this morning, so smooth and no wind in sight.

Wow - that small stormy cell drifted up from the Latrobe Valley and sat over Maffra long enough to deliver 5.75mm of rain!

....puts us well over an inch over the past 2 weeks in dribs and drabs. More importantly, shows signs of a return to "normal winter season" from hereon in.
