Yes, Logansi, by the chart it is VERY slow. On and around the change, esp let's us around the 1500-1800 wind change points, might be very high FDIs.

42C max here, a weak seabreeze tried to cool things circa 5:30pm, but we are now in a stinking hot lull.

Going to be a hot night here.

Good to see the lights stayed on here in Maffra (unlike the previous hot event), hope they did for all.

Today Vic had all remaining coal generators online, 5-10% of populated areas are still on holidays at the coast, business not yet full speed, no pre-frontal cloud looming (no household PV reduction typical of pre-change), half decent wind generation in SA/Vic, only 2 hot days in a row, relatively low temps in NSW/QLD, .....we got through it JUST. However spot market prices jumped to >$10K/MWHr - anyone guess what will happen for electricity futures prices, ...which flow on to our household electricity costs???

It does seems to be dying a bit now, number of starts along the SA border, aircraft will be up the first light so more may show up then.

Risk returns tomorrow in the north with storms possible again including in the East, which could be a big concern if anything fires up on the Northern side of the Alps.

Reached 45.3C here in Belgrave, but it didn't quite feel like it. Before anyone says anything, yes I know it's an over-exaggeration, but one I can do absolutely nothing about whatsoever. My weather station is on the roof of my house as it's the only spot where I can get accurate wind speed and rainfall readings. As a result, the other instruments such as the thermometer/temperature sensor are on the roof as well. poke

More realistically it was around 41-42C but I cannot provide an exact estimate.

Either way it was a very hot, dry, breezy day. But nothing compared to Black Saturday 2009 when the wind was a lashing northerly gale; the wind itself was scorching hot! frown

The cool change didn't finally start moving in until after 7pm. It took a while for the temperature to drop, but it is now a very pleasant evening! At the least check around an hour ago it was about 27C. smile

Edit: thank God I decided against going to Echuca/Moama tomorrow, it's going to be 43C up that way. I really don't like such extreme heat! frown eek mad crazy

the photographer in me is keeping his fingers crossed for the storm to sustain until it hits the city. But I think it may be too dry and cool to make the journey. Going Camping tomorrow so I'm going to chuck in the camera in case I get lucky. (rain typically likes to go camping with me) I'll get to give the GoPro a run tomorrow as well setting up the tent smile

Overnight low of 17.4C, at the last check it was around 30C. Humid with a layer of high cloud overhead, plus a cooling breeze. Hope we get some showers and storms later. smile

If you drive over dived ranges south as Melbourne only 22.9C and over North 40c very strange boundary...
