It seems like mother nature has banished winter back to its lair given the recent temps in SA/VIC lately hopefully its a good sign of a change back to traditional summer temps this year that would be nice if there is a few warmish/hot days in December as i got plans to head to the grampians for a weekend away

Front-like change here: temp dropped suddenly, light dropped significantly and suddenly and wind turned to W/SW and strengthened. Low dark cloud moved under the broken convective cloud - all quite spectacular.

Rain followed some minutes later: Bairnsdale Airport AWS shows 15mm+ but here there was 2-3 minutes of heavy rain then dropped to spotting. I doubt we got 5mm but will report in morning.

Must say WATL and official forecasts were about spot on!

Excellent pic petros, looked like that at home also.

8mm here over about 25 minutes.

Greens the grass up overnight, not heaps but very valuable to keep the garden going.

Lots of storms around us here but nothing right on top. I hate to say disappointed as it looked so promising. The joy of being a weather nerd! I think we got all up 1 mm. But good falls around us and up in the hills it seems. Got damn warm up here after the clouds parted and the sun broke through.

My post for the past few days including today from here in Belgrave...

The remainder of the Thursday afternoon (in the wake of the severe thunderstorms we had) was breezy and mostly cloudy (but dry with no further rain) with falling temperatures as a cool change/cold front moved through.

Persistent onshore flow from the south/southwest maintained cool to mild, mostly cloudy and at times breezy conditions during Friday, Saturday, and today; whenever the Sun came out it felt nice and strong! This onshore airstream was further enhanced by the passage of another cold front that brushed Victoria last night.

Friday and Saturday were generally dry with only the occasional light spit of rain, but much more substantial shower activity followed in the wake of last night's cold front! smile

Friday October 20th 2017

Low: 9.6C High: 19.6C Rain: 9.5mm


Saturday October 21st 2017

Low: 9.6C High: 18.6C Rain: Trace


Sunday October 22nd 2017

Low: 9.6C High: 18.8C Rain: 2.1mm

Since 9am this morning, an additional 3.2mm of rain has fallen.

Reached a top of 24.1C here in Belgrave today.

It was a gloomy, chilly morning, but the clouds broke up around lunch hour, leaving us with a gloriously fine, mild to warm and mostly sunny afternoon with cooling breezes. Perfect for being in the City! smile

Currently around 17C with increasing high cloud.
