That fire at Dargo Rd will be an escaped private burn off I'm tipping.

Strongest wind for quite some months, almost years.

Fire was an unattended campfire. A little disappointing that people still don't extinguish their camp fires. luckily it has been wet and isn't in the full blown summer. Big increase in out of control burns today as the embers get fanned back to life in the wind.

See obs, - 96kph at Moornapa 1021/1030 this am, it certainly looked like it here. Bought down one 10" limb from a Red Gum, missed fence as it fell from up high and sailed over fence before landing.

Samboz was on the ball re the wind. This area and my spot in particular is generally sheltered from N and NW winds but today they were horrendously strong and consistent over several hours.

To me (in my ignorance) I found it interesting that the strongest winds were not *on* the front but well ahead of it and that the front almost *slid* in by comparison.

No rain of consequence.

In the city gutted by this report from home just now

"It started as rain, then hail and sleet in it (with the odd blob) then a very brief period of all sleet with some blobs and eventually all snow. It was about 5.5 degrees when it started. 1.9c at end"

Coming home from the LV before, could see low level snow up on the ranges from Mt Useful eastwards, to 600 - 700 M in my opinion.

Found a handy 2.75mm in my gauge from early morning showers (3.75mm from this event), experiencing a light shower now, first since early morning.

Get those camera's out Dooga/Samboz/Ruckle et al, if there's a clear slot tomorrow morning, the hill should look impressive!

Had our first shower of hail and then turned
To wet snow about an hour ago.
Temp drop from 6c to 2.8c.

Radar now dried up!! But like u guys say there's
528 action right up over Gippsland until at least
10am according to gfs and plenty of precip, so
Hopefully those showers will push up and
Deliver a blanket of snow by the morning??

6C this morning with patchy cloud, the high country is obscured with light coloured cloud, MtWell obs 1.2mm since 0900 4/9 so not expecting huge white view when it clears.

(Like to see dark, even brownish tinge cloud to think snow up there.)

No rain here o/night but plenty others N/E of here did well. Thought I caught local ABC report of 25mm at Swifts Creek and see 10mm at Omeo.
