That easterly drizzle/showers persisted into the night and gave us 3mm rain to add to the 3.5mm we got with Sat arvo's thundery change.

After the 15mm we got last week, things have really greened up here despite it being last week of February.

Re Kelvin, looks like Tassie benefited most for SE Aus?

My first post since last week from here in Belgrave. I'm making a good recovery from my nose surgery, but I've been so busy with family commitments. poke

A continuation of the relentlessly warm to hot, dry and at times windy conditions to wrap-up Summer 2017/2018, followed by cooler, but still dry weather to kick-start Autumn 2018.

The remnants of Tropical Cyclone Kelvin swept through from the WA Pilbara brought bursts of troughy weather conditions between February 21st and February 24th, followed by a brief cool-down on February 25th in the wake of a cold front. Only very light showers on the 22nd & 23rd; somewhat heavier showers with the risk of a thunderstorm occurred while I was down in Rowville and Wheelers Hill on February 24th, along with an ugly scud-fest once the cool change arrived. I also encountered a few more post-frontal light showers later that night when I went out to Melbourne Airport to pick up some relatives who were returning from Sydney.

Warm to hot, dry conditions resumed in the waning days of the summer.

I went down to Phillip Island with my family and friends (including Cape Woolamai, Cowes, the Nobbies Centre/Seal Rocks and the Penguin Parade) on February 27th. Thanks to hot, dry northerly winds, temperatures stayed 30-32C for the vast majority of the day, dropping to around 28C a couple of hours before sunset. While at the Penguin Parade at dusk, the mercury fell to around 24C with a cooling onshore breeze. And during the drive back home to Melbourne after dark it was still around 21C. smile

It was very windy on February 28th while I was in the City, with a cool change moving through around mid-afternoon; the bulk of the day was mostly sunny, but the late-afternoon and evening were mostly cloudy and we even managed a few light showers in the Boronia/Ferntree Gully area on the way home in the evening.

Today has been mostly cloudy but with lengthening sunny spells, cool southeasterly winds and a temperature spread of exactly 10 degrees. Perfect for a nice afternoon drive out to Emerald! smile

Currently around 13C.

As much as the conditions have been reasonable enough to go out and do things with my family, overall I am SICK, SICK, SICK to death of the lack of decent rainfall and storm activity throughout February 2018. The fact that the bushfire risk doesn't seem too high is not enough, considering how parched the grass is and the fact that many deciduous trees are starting to change their colours due to the excessively hot conditions!!!!! mad mad mad mad mad

Really hoping things become wetter and stormier as we move deeper into autumn. frown
