Hi macman

From what I understand the blue line
Represents 540 thickness, which is usually
Any precipitation falling down to about 1400mtrs
Will fall as snow.

Then once the thickness dives below that 540
Mark then the lower altitude the snow will fall.
Eg. 536thickness is about 1000-1100m snow line
532thickness is about 7-800m snow line
528 thickness is roughly 4-500m snow line
And so on

Overnight low of 10.8C, currently around 12C. Overcast and windy, with a burst of rain over the past hour. Looks like a wet, stormy day coming up for Melbourne. smile

Periods of very light rain throughout the day but only edging on 1mm. Upper level forecasts to 12mm tonight and tomorrow morning. Deceptively warm under a cloudy sky; with variable sometimes moderate breeze.

After a mild 19C day here with steady NW'ly and early arvo showers (1.0mm), Baro has crashed to 996 hPa and it's looming dark, almost stormy, to our NW, showers have just started.

The SW'ly tilt to Thursday nights winds/rain looks to set in right through to the Friday morning commute in Melbourne, not as cold as it looked a day or two back:




.....but a classic set-up for traffic chaos for Melbournes roads, eg. South Eastern Freeway out near Wellington Road! :0

Wind gusty on/off all day, totally dry here round 0930, puddles in Maffra, make the Golf Course look better Petros grin

Temps - saw 19C, still not cold o/s @ 17C with Mt. Moornapa 18C @ midday.

Rain approaching on radar all day but never arriving, looked wetter in the Alpine area to our N but 3mm+ for Mt Wellington and Reeves Knob is nothing flash.

Licola has 10mm, not much run off for Glenmaggie Weir irrigators in that.

29mm on High Ridge might have a little run off for the Macalister River, and is S/E of Mt Buller which has 40mm+, good rain thru' that bit of high country.

Been light'ish rain for the last 1/2 hr here.

Hi Samboz,

"Rain approaching on radar all day but never arriving ..." I think there was some degree of virga in today's precip as there were times the radar showed rain over me but nothing falling. At the same time, I didn't see any visual evidence of virga.

Very true here also TB, radar showed the virga but nothing falling outside on a couple of occasions before Sale radar dropped out of service for a while.

Couple of weeks back not a thing on the radar but steady light rain at home.

Less than 0.5mm so far, better falls later tonight (ACCESS) but won't hold the breath waiting.

Grabbed a large square of lucerne near Sale, by 1015hrs I was the 7th one in.

Rain needed badly, about 2" since the end of April.

Don't doubt the low level snow f'cast dooga', 528 cold air on Fri a'noon and overnight into Sat.

Modest rainfall, again on ACCESS, could restrict snow depth do you think ?

Going to be COLD !

Samboz- yeah looks to dry out a fair bit
Going into Friday night/sat morning, but
We usually do fairly well in the south
Wester so Baw Baw should do well
Snow wise.

Hopefully it gives us up here plenty of
Snow flurries 😀😀
Maybe some higher parts around here
That are around 500m might get snow
Sticking?

6mm here in the 24hrs to 9am. Not much but the best fall since early June.

Some showers still evident in the area but seems to be clearing. Wind has been briefly quite gusty though dead calm atm.

Looking forward to some snow for you Dooga.
