Yes samboz I did say I would open a thread
For this period and I will gladly honour that
With a big snowy smile ❄️😀

Hopefully a big few days of weather coming
Up, with two fronts coming through.
The first overnight tonight bringing strong
Wind rain and snow down to about 1000m.
Clears out fairly quickly tommoz tho to leave
Us with cold strong nor west winds but mainly
Fine day I'm thinking.

Second front comes in Sunday which is stronger
And colder again with more of the above but
Snow line dropping to I'm thinking about 7-800m.

Very severe conditions expected through alpine
Areas with blizzards likely and possibly up to
1mtr of snow falling over the 3 days!!

Batten down everyone and enjoy the winters

Great thread Doogasnow! grin

The cut-off low we had on Thursday gave us 6.3mm of rain in the 24 hours to 9am yesterday here in Belgrave. Temperatures ranged from a low of 6.3C to 10.3C btw.

It was a cold, windy, and mostly cloudy day, with low cloud in the wake of the cut-off low, and increasing high cloud ahead of last night's frontal system, but we did have some sunny breaks. It became increasingly blustery during the afternoon and evening.

Not the best day for being out in Box Hill and later in the City, but at least I was indoors the majority of the time. The first showers arrived on the homeward journey with my fiancee after 10pm.

I collected 3.1mm of rain in the 24 hours to 9am this morning. Today the temperature ranged between 7.2C and 14.5C. The winds died down this morning but it became increasingly windy yet again throughout the day, with fast-moving clouds but plenty of sunny breaks today as well.

Currently around 10C and very windy! The cold front should hit Melbourne at some stage overnight, likely with squally winds and heavy showers, maybe even a storm or two! smile

After a rather depressingly dry and quiet June and July period, the cut-off low punched the stubborn high in the guts. This seems to have opened the door for last night's frontal system, which in turn set the stage for the potentially major winter storm now slamming head-on into Victoria! And more powerful cold fronts lined up throughout much of the upcoming 7-10 day period according to the models.

Winter 2017 has FINALLY swung into action!!! =D

Thanks asf 😀

Well today shaping to be very brisk, with
Showers starting to build up on radar. Just
Hope we can get something out of the
Nor west feed??

Very cold temps developing out west
Eg
Ben Nevis - 0c at 875m asl
Mt William - -1.2c at 1100m asl
And there were a couple of places on
The coast at about 5c!
So some very cold air looks like pushing
Through today and overnight.

Baw Baw also -2c

Thanks to normal winter feels very cold of 7.1c at 12pm.
Looks like more colder from SW bring gusty winds and front storms on way for Victoria.

Dropped to 3.6c here at 1230 today on back edge of the band, no snow or sleet to report (believe me I was looking). Might have been some mixed graupelly stuff up at Mt Macedon at that time for a few minutes.

Has managed to get up to 7.2c in the abundant sunshine over the last few hours though it looks like some more mizzle might be inbound now.

33.4mm at home this month or for this sequence since Thursday night.

Temperature has dropped more as the rainband moves through. Spattering of rain but will not amount to more than a mil I think. No excitement in squalls or the like.
