Overnight low of 8.0C, reached a top of only 11.8C here in Belgrave today.


Cold, wet, windy and stormy today. The ground was damp when I woke up this morning, but no measurable rainfall in the 24 hours to 9am.

The first wave of truly bad weather swept through around 9:30-10amish; the next wave of heavy showers arrived around lunchtime, with the temperature abruptly dropping to 7.2C at one point! eek

Then it was mostly sunny skies up until about 5pm, when it got dark and cloudy yet again ahead of the third band of stormy weather that swept through over the past hour. A shame it mostly broke up on radar over my area. frown

Collected 3.2mm of rain since 9am; the rain was quite heavy at times today, accompanied by strong winds. No hail, thunder or lightning though. Currently around 7C with the barometer showing 997hPa.

3mm y'day arvo' with fast moving front, not much wind around after media hype.

117kph & 120kph at Mt Hotham the week before and didn't hear about it.

Best snow seen this season on Mt Wellington, still only a modest fall as not enough moisture about to turn the whole place white -






First IMGUR Pic since joining up with them, should have given PB the boot years ago, IMGUR takes about 5% time or less, to load etc etc, very good program grin

Cold, strong westerly breeze, intermittent light showers all day so far. But only a couple of mm so far. But very low chill factor!

You could be quite right TB.

Had further look at obs, can't find any wind over 81kph at Hotham, Falls Creek or Mt Buller over Fri-Sun.

Buller CALM from 0530 this morn.and an hour y'day arvo.

Re Hotham, they have small variations of windspeed published in the obs, if faulty would that be done.

Don't have a huge amount of knowledge on the subject but Blizzard Conditions seem to have been scarce overall.

Another 3mmor4mm today, didn't see 10C at any stage, cool one!

I heard that Harrietville access was cut off, not that it takes much to do that, normally needs plowing many times over a season.

Anyhow any decent snow is good news catchment-wise smile

Well done on IMGUR Samboz, like you, frustrated with many products over the years, this one is a gem. Great photo by the way.

We picked up another 2.75mm from showers at odd times during the day, 12.5C max, baro slowly inching up, now 1008 hPa.

.....more snow tonight, and hopefully a milder calm arvo at Maffra by Wednesday (got an outdoors appointment wink ).

[edit] - brings me to 18.25mm rain over past 7 days. Tending back to "normal".

"Blizzard - Violent and very cold wind which is loaded with snow, some of which has been raised from snow covered ground...B.O.M."

Terrific snow over that side and every bit this side helps. The odd shower still wandering overhead from the S/W, calm & 8C here.

Not much onshore moisture according to ACCESS in the next week'ish period.

We picked up another 1mm in overnight showers, looks like some rainy patches inching eastwards this way from the LV atm, would be nice to pick up another 0.5mm ahead of a likely dryer 7 day outlook.

Hi guys! smile

Here's my report for the past few days from here in Belgrave. Pity I've been so busy. poke


Monday August 7th 2017

Low: 5.9C High: 9.9C Rain: 7.4mm

My coldest day for 2017, and it certainly felt it! While there was hardly any wind, it was nonetheless a cold, dank, damp, dark day - overcast with frequent heavy showers. All thanks to a cold front that swept through Melbourne early in the morning; thank goodness I was stuck indoors at work! eek



Tuesday August 8th 2017

Low: 5.5C High: 14.9C Rain: 6.3mm

Again cold and mostly cloudy, but noticeably warmer than the day before. A renewed burst of showers swept through the Belgrave area during the afternoon and evening (forcing the postponement of my tennis lesson), although the Box Hill area where I was working mostly missed the rain, only to be treated with a beautiful sunset! smile



Wednesday August 9th 2017

Low: 7.8C High: 18.2C Rain: 1.1mm

Chilly to start out with, but the afternoon had an almost springlike-feel to it; mild and breezy with plenty of sunshine! Such a shame I was stuck indoors at work but ah well. smile

It started getting quite windy late at night btw!



Thursday August 10th 2017

Low: 10.4C High: 18.7C Rain: 0mm

My warmest day for August 2017. The breeze wasn't as strong as it was last night though, but it was still windy, and we lost the power a couple of times early in the morning and throughout the afternoon.

Otherwise it was a partly cloudy day with sunny breaks, and quite mild. smile

Too mild perhaps! Even now, while the wind does have a bit of a chill to it, it's hovering around a rather balmy 16C. eek

Reached a partly cloudy top of 17.3C on Friday arvo here in Belgrave, and it stayed dry until showers arrived during the evening and again early on Saturday morning. I collected 3.1mm in total in the 24 hours to 9am on Saturday. smile

On Saturday it ranged between 8.7C and 16.0C, and again it was a dry, partly cloudy day for the most part. Showers returned during the evening and into Sunday morning, leaving us with another 3.2mm in the 24 hours to 9am on Sunday.

Sunday was a mild, mostly sunny day, ranging between 7.9C and 19.5C. Another taste of the coming spring! grin
