After some light variable winds it seems to have settled down to NE wind here and pressure drop off over last hour or so. I am on the fun side of the trough at least for now, lots of weak convection and showers to my NW so no real cap perhaps today (a more normal VIC day) trough appears to be NW to SE across state.
Nice looking sky 23.4/18.3 currently

Very light shower here, grass wet, concrete dry and sun out again, DP cracked 19 with the sprinkle, pretty gross for these parts - hope we get rewarded for it.

Overnight low of 16.5C. A cool, damp, overcast start to the day here in Belgrave with sprinkling showers last night. I also caught glimpses of a brief but beautiful sunset despite the foggy, cloudy conditions yesterday evening. smile

The scudfest retreated southwards and lifted after 11am. Still mostly cloudy with the occasional light shower but also with sunny breaks, very humid and getting warmer! Currently around 25C. smile

Also unstable, so definitely a chance for some great storms this afternoon and evening! smile

Could almost describe it as foggy in N Gippy during the later morning. Currently calm muggy cloudy 24C.

Looking forward to what the troughline brings later on (currently slanting in across Horsham/Ararat/Colac).

Wind has gone to S or SSE in the last 10 mins or so and freshening now. Pretty sure I just heard thunder. Still no precip today other than earlier drizzle showers. Hope we can get something measurable before this stuff heads east and really gets going. YAY more thunder

Edit: Quite a lot of thunder actually. No rain though, think we might miss out somewhat on that front here at home but a quite a bit around

Talking to a farmer at Boisdale today, reported 25mm late yesterday when it came over, said it flooded out everywhere under verandahs etc.

Another at Llowalong with 8mm in 1/4hr as it went over.

Mt Moornapa had 9.2mm, just had to be under the wet bits passing by!

Hey gang! That was a bit of fun, yet another direct-hit for us here in Belgrave... as usual! lol wink

Peaked at 27.0C around lunchtime. Since midday it's been overcast, and it stayed very warm and muggy up until around 3pm when cooler air and the first showers finally arrived. The rain lasted around an hour, falling in moderately heavy bursts at times.

Once the rain stopped, it became very foggy with virtually no wind whatsoever. Without the radar it wouldn't been impossible to tell that a thunderstorm was on its way! poke crazy

Rain resumed ahead of the impending storm front just after 4:30pm, and 20 minutes later the thunder started up, rumbling on average once or two a minute. The rain became somewhat heavier and just after 5pm it suddenly turned very dark.

The main storm finally burst upon us at 5:09pm and lasted around 15 minutes. The fog layer prevented me from seeing any cumulonimbus storm structure unfortunately, but I saw one or two flashes of lightning. Otherwise it was frequent thunder with torrential rain, but very little wind. smile

The storm front cleared at about 5:25pm, with the rain and thunder gradually easily and ceasing by 5:40pm.

Collected 10.5mm of rain so far today (8.4mm during the storm, 2.1mm from the preceding shower activity), with a peak rainfall rate of 84.8mm/hr during the height of the storm.

The fog has lifted, but it's still overcast out there. Currently around 18C.

Still a few showers nearby and we're getting light rain once more, so hopefully a couple more millimetres over the next hour or so. My December 2017 total is now 174.9mm! =D

50mm in 30 minutes at Seymour. Don't think anyone watching the radar will be too surprised by that.

Yep Seymour radar was quite epic.

11.8mm here from the afternoon rumbles. Just missed out on a second go in the last half hour. Imagine just to my north has got a bigger total.
