Hey guys! A belated Happy New Year. All the best for 2018. Reporting from Corryong, Northeast Victoria. smile

Firstly heres my report for the first four days of the year from my home in Belgrave.

Monday January 1st 2018
Low: 13.1C High: 31.5C Rain: 0mm

Tuesday January 2nd 2018
Low: 14.4C High: 28.1C Rain: 0mm

Wednesday January 3rd 2018
Low: 12.4C High: 25.0C Rain: Trace

Thursday January 4th 2018
Low: 10.6C High: 30.6C Rain: Trace

Except for a couple of cloudy periods, and also a few very light showers on the Tuesday and Wednesday as a weak cold front brushed by to the south, its been very pleasing mid-summer weather. Cool at night, warm to hot and mostly sunny by day with refreshing breezes. smile

Loc: Melbourne (Belgrave); Corryong...
And now my report for Friday January 5th 2018, when I left Melbourne for my current short break away in Corryong. smile

My family and I left home in Belgrave a little after 12:30pm, stopping for lunch in nearby Monbulk around 1pm, and for fuel in Lilydale at about 1:30pm.

From there we departed Melbourne and travelled north up the Melba Highway, reaching Yea by 2:30pm. Then after a 20-minute drive northwest along the Goulburn Valley Highway, we stopped in Seymour for a snack.

Shortly after 3:30pm we joined the M31 Hume Freeway (Melbourne-Sydney), reaching Albury/Wodonga at 5:30pm; it was good to be able to cross the Murray River into NSW/ACT yet again! After about 90 minutes of shopping and dinner, we continued east along the Murray Valley Highway, arriving in Corryong just on sunset! smile

Weatherwise it was true mid-summer conditions during the entire road trip! No trace whatsoever of last winters freezing chill, or the chilly nights and mild to warm afternoons of last autumn or spring. crazy

The whole day it was mostly clear skies (except for some fair-weather cumulus, and high-level cirrus later in the day), scorching sunshine, a slight breeze, and low humidity. It looked a little hazy towards Tumbarumba and the NSW Snowy Mountains once we arrived in the Upper Murray. There was also a bit of mushy/bubbly stuff along the Australian Alps (mostly about the Victorian High Country), but no showers or thunderstorms resulted.

Up until we reached Glenburn in the Yea River Valley temperatures stayed in the mid/high-twenties, making conditions feel very pleasant for being outside whenever possible. As we continued northwards into the Murray-Darling Basin it became progressively hotter, breaching the 32C/90F mark by the time we arrived in Yea. poke

Beyond Seymour, temperatures soared to over 35C across the Northern Plains and over the Murray River into the NSW Riverina; it peaked at about 36C in Wangaratta and Albury/Wodonga btw. eek

The mercury was still around 34C by the time we left the Border region after dinner and it stayed that way until we had past Bullioh, not far beyond Tallangatta. But it dropped about 10C as we climbed up to Koetong and Shelley! And after descending into the Upper Murray at Berringama, it remained around 24C right through to Corryong. smile

Northern Victoria looks noticeably drier already (as opposed to the Melbourne area), but thanks to the recent heavy rainfall so far this summer its still relatively green in places, particularly here in the Corryong area.

And Lake Hume is just under 71% capacity, according to Goulburn-Murray Water. smile

Back home in Belgrave, it ranged from a minimum of 11.9C to a maximum of 23.4C at midday (around the time I had to switch off my weather station). Nearby Scoresby ranged from about 12C to about 32C.

And as for today here in Corryong, it's been a very, VERY hot, dry, mostly sunny day, peaking at about 38C on my thermometer! Quite gusty winds too; the breeze itself has a bite to it. Thank goodness for the air-con. eek

It was a very comfortable night though, dipping to around 14C this morning.

Still around 37C at nearby Khancoban, NSW. Looking forward to hitting the local swimming pool for a dip. smile

Going for 41C tomorrow! frown

I;ve got a battery 4GX internet thingy. It is continually (unusually) dropping out.

Concerns if there was a genuine emergency! - pretty sure our power issue is Maffra local.

Sympathise with those in SA during the last load shedding event there on a hot day at 6pm (SE SA). Same here.

No flickers of power supply Sale today P, hottish and fairly calm day with 40C, as long as not working in it OK.

The change later will be nice.

All this combustible fuel in suburbia, got me beat why it's not reduced beforehand.
