Loc: Melbourne (Belgrave); Corryong...
Hi again everyone! smile

I'm back home in Belgrave, having arrived here in Melbourne from Corryong, Northeast Victoria around 2 hours ago. My report for yesterday and today.

Yesterday was much sunnier than the day before across the Upper Murray.

A very nippy night with lows of around 0-2C with possible fog and frost quickly gave way to a gloriously fine, mild and mostly sunny afternoon with a cool breeze. Temperatures were generally around 18C. Perfect for taking a drive with the family across the Murray River to Khancoban, NSW. smile

Only other thing worth mentioning was smoke billowing from a couple of out of control blazes between Tooma and Tumbarumba, according to the NSW Rural Fire Service website.

And now for today's report.

My family and I left Corryong at about 3pm. Our first stop was at Beechworth for afternoon tea at about 4:30pm for about 30 minutes. An hour later we reached the M31 Hume Freeway (Melbourne-Sydney) at Wangaratta, and by roughly 6pm we arrived at Benalla for dinner. Just after 7pm we continued southwest to Melbourne via Lake Nillahcootie, Bonnie Doon, Yea, the Yarra Valley, and the Dandenong Ranges. By about 9:30pm we reached home.

Today was by far the best day of the trip in terms of weather. Another nippy night with lows of about 0-2C with local fog and frost about the Upper Murray gave way to a gloriously fine, mild to warm and sunny afternoon with hardly a cloud in the sky, and little if any wind! grin

Temperatures ranges between 17-21C from Corryong right through to Benalla.

At 7pm it was about 16C as we were leaving Benalla, and the temperature dropped as darkness fell after sunset and we drove south on the Midland Highway. By the time we joined the Maroondah Highway at Maindample (near Mansfield - at about 7:30pm) it was 9C.

From then on, the temperature fluctuated between 9-11C virtually the whole way to Kallista in the Dandenong Ranges (with the exception of Yarra Glen, where it briefly "warmed" to 12C), before finally dropping one more notch to 8C the rest of the way home.

Still plenty of snow coated along the Kosciuszko ridge (and to a lesser extent over Mount Bogong). Also very lush and green, with lots of beautiful flowers and blossoms, and some stunning yellow canola fields. And Lake Hume is still around 91%, while Lake Nillahcootie and Lake Eildon are each at roughly 91% and 73% capacity respectively according to Goulburn-Murray Waters.

Ah, the magic of springtime across Northern Victoria and Southern NSW/ACT!! grin

Full stats from the BOM from my trip to Corryong to come in the next few days. smile

My weather station is still offline for the moment, but it's currently around 10C at Scoresby.

Poor Eddy, the rain has well and truly set in for SWR right now.

We could get a bit of rain from the north today but I doubt it will reach this far south so the big dry will continue. We badly need rain.

Steve- 'week just after Christmas' is what Homer said so I would get it will be between Christmas and New Years that this will happen.

I don't know WR, it could be possible. I should send Seabreeze a message and catch up with him and say hello!!
I wonder how much rain has fallen here in SWR? At a guess i reckon about 25mm.

Meanwhile it's a very nice day here. Looks and feels like a summer's day with humid conditions, seabreezes and storm clouds on the escarpment. I personally think the convection is too dry but something stormy may form on the escarpment if we're lucky.

I'm at the coastline right now and it feels much warmer than 21C. Rather humid and sweaty weather compared to the conditions we've had over the last few months.

Def's feels hooooomid, but that wind is still coolish (well to me it is).

Def's chance of a drop over the escarpment, and maybe coastal fringe but we're stuck between the low/trough to the east and drier flow to the west sadly.

Apologies for my misleading comment originally but I firstly said "after Christmas".
It's actually 30th Dec to 6th of Jan I have booked for.
Hope it's still convenient for those that might be up there at that time for a get together.

Oh, and Eddy, can you also come and have a holiday here in Dural please. We need rain as well. Desperately. smile

Are you dam's bone dry?


One dam is almost empty and I have never seen it empty. One dam has dropped 1/3 from being almost full at the end of June (only a small dam).
My main water supply dam is back at its record lowest level now leading into summer....might be 35% full. That might sound ok, but its terrible because if it goes dry there is no back up. Without some big rain in the next few month we are going to be in strife. The evaporation rates have been incredible.
The only benefit I can see is that the vast swathes of lantana that have taken over the area in the last few years have almost been knocked off. They have no leaves and about half the stems are dry but there is enough green in the main trunk to reboot if it wets up shortly. hopefully at least some of it has been knocked off properly.

I can see some areas of eucalypts where the bedrock is shallow under stress also (saw that around 2005/06 too). They wont make it through summer without rain. you know its dry when the gum trees start dying....

We had some rain earlier in the year, but it wasnt anything like what the coastal areas received, so we are in deficit from a much lower base. Double how dry it appears in Sydney/CC/Illawarra and thats how bad it is here.....probably double it again for the upper Hunter....

Beautiful pic there CS22, I'm really liking this daylight saying too. Daylight at dinnertime is very nice.

GringosRain it may not be as dry down here but geez it's as dry as I have ever seen it. Hardly a blade of green grass to be seen around the place.

The only things that are green at the moment are the weeds.
I've never seen eucalypts shed so many leaves as they are doing now.
Survival mode me thinks.

Yeah exactly Homer, not good at all. If the dry spell continues it will only get worse at a higher rate as temps warm up.


At North Beach today, beautiful day but look at how dead the grass is!
