Petros hurries his last shot at Royal Maffra this afternoon. What you see is what Royal M got!

Yeah some models show it repeating itself late next week.

After a cold start November things have turned hot. Based on the forecast when this period has finished Melbourne is likely to have only seen 1 day below 27 between November 13 and at least the 24th.

Loving this weather no doubt!

But what what's happened to Melbourne/Vic weather?
Constant humid North Easterly winds, more akin to cities like Sydney or Brisbane right on the Eastern Seaboard.

Hey gang! Sorry I haven't been posting for a while (especially since by trip to Sydney), I've been very busy but still actively watching the weather. Here's my post for the rest of this thread from here in Belgrave.

Shortly after my last post on Wednesday November 15th 2017, it became very cloudy and we had heavy showers and locally severe thunderstorms break lose over Melbourne, moving north to south. The vast majority of action sadly missed us, but around 6pm the skies got very dark as a large, potentially severe thunderstorm cluster brushed us just to our west. The storm lasted about an hour, giving us a fair bit of thunder, lightning (including a couple of bolts), cooling gusty outflow winds, and some heavy rain. smile

Here's an Instagram pic I took of the storm as it brushed past:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BbiFeYPAEhI/?hl=en&taken-by=aussiestormfreak

The main rainband swept down from the north during the evening, with further embedded thunderstorm activity (particularly around 8:30-9pm); the rain was moderately heavy at times but cleared by about 10:30pm.

A few showers came through during the early hours of the morning of Thursday November 16th 2017, and then another rainband with embedded storms swept in between 9am and 2pm; the heaviest rain sadly failed the reach us, but it was a cool, damp day nonetheless.

The rest of the afternoon and evening was mostly cloudy with sporadic showers and thunderstorms around Melbourne, plus a beautiful sunset on my way down to Dandenong. smile

Sunset pic from Endeavour Hills:

Friday November 17th 2017 dawned coolish with misty fog, but grew warmer and sunnier (and increasingly humid, unsettled and stormy) as I made my way across town to Melbourne Airport for my flight to Sydney.

The whole way Melbourne-Sydney flight (including Corryong, Canberra and Wollongong) featured some of the best severe thunderstorm action I've ever seen from a plane! And lots of severe storms after I reached Sydney and made my way to Parramatta, especially towards the NSW Illawarra and Blue Mountains; the flight itself was nearly delayed by dangerous thunderstorms that threatened Tullamarine from Wallan and Seymour! smile

Full report can be read here; note that you'll need to scroll down a bit to find my post: http://forum.weatherzone.com.au/ubbthreads.php/topics/1440990/6

And my best pics of the action on my Instgram account:

Dangerous storm threatening Melbourne Airport from the north - which thankfully weakened, only to have another nasty thunderstorm develop right overhead and break lose around Keilor and Sunshine:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BbkyLGfAFKB/?hl=en&taken-by=aussiestormfreak

Storm with a possible microburst over Yan Yean, just after take-off from Tullamarine:

Storms building over the Kinglake area, seen from Strath Creek:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BbowdMeAnw_/?hl=en&taken-by=aussiestormfreak

Severe storms flaring over the Victorian High Country, see over the Kiewa Valley; the extensive convective cloudcover prevented me from seeing Corryong, the Murray River or the NSW Snowy Mountains:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BbpoveVg88A/?hl=en&taken-by=aussiestormfreak

Widespread severe thunderstorm activity south of Canberra and along the NSW South Coast, seen from a place called Lerida near Gunning (between Yass and Goulburn); I couldn't actually see the Capital btw:
https://www.instagram.com/p/Bbp7fHUAJnd/?hl=en&taken-by=aussiestormfreak

Very, VERY persistent severe storm offshore in the Tasman Sea/South Pacific Ocean, due east of Wollongong and Kiama in the Illawarra (seen over the Royal National Park, south of Sydney) - which later in the evening came ashore and dumped excessively heavy rainfall over the Illawarra; I got to see a bit of after-dark lightning from this same storm cell from my accommodation in Parramatta in Western Sydney:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BbrZF26gThq/?hl=en&taken-by=aussiestormfreak

Same storm offshore from Wollongong and Kiama, seen just after I landed at Sydney Airport:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BbvVGfrAUJK/?hl=en&taken-by=aussiestormfreak

Same storm again (STILL offshore from Wollongong and Kiama), this time aboard the Circular Quay-Parramatta Ferry, plus more thunderstorms raging to Sydney's west over the Blue Mountains:
https://www.instagram.com/p/BbyO9URgkoc/?hl=en&taken-by=aussiestormfreak

Back home, my family reported that a few nasty storms did hit the Dandenong Ranges area during the afternoon and evening. And while we missed most of the rain from the storms that smashed Melbourne on Saturday November 18th (while I was getting drenched by heavy showers and storms in a very fog-shrouded, soaking Blue Mountains haha), my family reported that they had some very, VERY dangerous lightning strikes! eek

Sunday November 19th 2017 was dry, except for a few distant thundery showers about the ranges to Melbourne's northeast. I got to enjoy a beautiful sunny day in Sydney btw! smile

My stats (where available) from here in Belgrave for Thursday November 16th until Sunday November 19th 2017:

Thurday November 16th 2017

Min: 16.8C Max: 19.7C Rain: 2.1mm
