Agree WR, this April could turn out head and shoulders above the rest as far as anomalies go.

@Blair Trewin. Could you clarify what you mean
regarding 6 national temps occuring since 2005. Are these averaged max temps?

Yep many areas having a VERY warm March & April. We are way outside our norm with day temps especially.

Further west is even hotter

Yes, daily maximum temperatures (or, to be precise, maximum temperature anomalies) averaged spatially over the country. (The reason we use anomalies - as we do for monthly and annual averages - is so that it's not unduly distorted by changes in the network).

nice work rain gauge. We picked up 5mm in a shower an hour or so back. Sun is out now. warm and muggy.

It really is stupid warm....even the southerlies are just a pleasant temp. I have to say that it is magic weather though. Apart from the continuing long term dry, these last few weeks have been amazing and enjoyable.

The dams locally continue to drop and they are at some scary levels now. Fingers crossed for a big ECL winter. Considering the dynamics that are coming together it really should be a wet winter in eastern NSW....Whether you can get really cold weather simultaneously remains to be seen.

I noticed that bit of hype in social media after I said I thought it would be a cold winter a few weeks back, and it got me wondering whether I was just picking up on that sentiment in the ether or weather this season is really going to turn the cold on. A negative SAM and continuing warm anomalies in the Tasman can be a potent mix and a deep solar minimum to boot. Its going to turn quickly when it does turn!

An 84mm dump this arvo, would be just beautiful. One can only hope...

I reckon you could be onto something sure Gringos Rain. Surely a really unsually hot April would correspond to an interesting winter.

Thanx Blair for info.

Revoltingly humid.

Winter cancelled this year. The Low team don't wanna play the High team. They struggled last year and have called it quits. For good.

Big Call Knot...probably about par with suggesting record cold!

There could be something too it though. I read a paper or article about deep solar minimums at some point that suggested, that the NH gets very cold during these periods put the SH can stay the same or indeed get warmer. Due to continent V Oceans balance between the two hemispheres.

Pushing a bit off topic, but when we are observing local weather I guess we have to speculate as to why certain things may be happening. I know whats not happening and that is good solid widespread rain.

Loc: Melbourne (Belgrave); Corryong...
I'm back home in Belgrave, having returned to Melbourne from Corryong, Northeast Victoria last night. Here's my report for the past 48 hours.

Easter Monday was again splendid across the Upper Murray. The cold front and associated cloudband cleared eastwards early in the morning. Aside from another chilly night, possible light misty fog at sunrise, smoke haze from ongoing autumn control-burnoff operations (especially out at Shelley), and a rather gusty westerly/southwesterly wind that lasted well into the afternoon, it was a gloriously fine, mild to warm and mostly sunny day, with a beautiful sunset and moonrise to follow. smile

No BOM data is currently available from the Corryong Airport, but nearby Khancoban, NSW ranged between 9.3C and 28.9C on Monday.


And as for yesterday (Tuesday April 3rd 2018)...

My family and I departed Corryong for Melbourne around 11:45am. Our first stop was a 30-minute lunch at Tallangatta an hour later.

Rather than our usual route home from Corryong through Tallangatta to Melbourne via Tangambalanga/Kiewa, Yackandandah, Beechworth, Wangaratta, Benalla, Lake Nillahcootie, Maindample, Bonnie Doon, Yea, the Yarra Valley and Dandenong Ranges, we decided to go and pay a visit to some relatives out at Cobram/Barooga.

Leaving Tallangatta at roughly 1:15pm, we reached Albury/Wodonga approximately half-an-hour later to refuel the car. Shortly before 2pm we headed westbound on the M31 Hume Freeway (Melbourne-Sydney); about 10-15 minutes later we exited the Hume at Barnawartha North and continued along the Murray Valley Highway through Rutherglen, Bundalong and Yarrawonga/Mulwala, arriving in Cobram/Barooga at about 3:15pm.

Following a pleasant couple of hours spend with our relatives, including a walk along the Murray River at Thomsons Beach, we continued on our homeward journey at about 5:10pm. We travelled south across the irrigation areas south of the Murray to Katamatite and then southwest to Shepparton, arriving just before 6pm for dinner.

At about 6:45pm we departed Shepparton and drove southbound along the M39 Goulburn Valley Freeway (Melbourne-Brisbane), reaching Seymour at about 7:30pm and then Yea a little after 8pm, where we headed south to the Yarra Valley and Melbourne along the Melba Highway. We re-entered the Melbourne metropolitan area in Lilydale at about 9pm, and just before 9:30pm we arrived back home in Belgrave.


Weatherwise, it was absolutely splendid conditions all day long! grin

Another chilly night in the Upper Murray gave way to yet another gloriously fine, mild to warm and mostly sunny day with light winds across Northern Victoria and neighbouring parts of Southern NSW. It was very hazy though, with burn-offs in every direction and thick, dirty smoke hanging heavily in the air, especially out on the vast open plains on either side of the Murray River.

Temperatures climbed to around 27C around Corryong, dropping to about 22C up at Shelley and Koetong to the west of the Upper Murray. The temperature rose back to 26-27C at Tallangatta, and peaked at about 28C just west of Albury/Wodonga.

As we headed west along the Murray Valley Highway from the Border region the temperature hovered more or less around 27-28C, and stayed around that mark during our time in Cobram/Barooga.

The temperature started to fall as we left Cobram/Barooga and headed south to Melbourne. At Katamatite it was roughly 26C, and by the time we entered the city limits of Shepparton from the north it was about 24C, with a beautiful sunset over the confluence of the Broken and Goulburn Rivers! smile

As we were preparing to leave Shepparton it was around 22C, getting down to 18C in Seymour and 15C in Yea.

Travelling south on the Melba Highway through Murrindindi and Glenburn towards Melbourne (the moon began to rise as drove through the Yea Valley btw), the temperature ranged between 13-15C, but then it fell to 11C at Castella (between Kinglake and Toolangi) and averaged around 11-12C the rest of the way back to home to Belgrave, peaking at 13C in Lilydale and Mount Evelyn and dipping to 10C in Kallista.

And as a bit of a surprise treat, there was misty fog in Yarra Glen! crazy

PS Thanks Knot (and anyone else I might've missed) for the comments to my posts over the past few days. I've enjoyed reading everyone else's posts too. Looking forward to returning across to Northeast Victoria and NSW/ACT again one day. Take care guys! wink

Latest forecast now has 7 straight days above 30 for Penrith/Richmond/Campbelltown.
This is quite a unique heat spell and surely one for the record books in one way or another.

And Knotty, love your contribution on here mate and your sense of humour, but all your doom and gloom 5-6 times every day is becoming a bit tiresome tbh.
I'm not a heat lover as you know but there's nothing I can do about it and whinging certainly won't change anything.

I'd prefer we kept to the facts and records and future forecasts and discussion about this heat spell.
It'll end eventually - probably sooner rather than later, and yes, then we'll get some real autumnal weather. Let's hope it's a short autumn and we get into winter quickly because this summer has certainly been long enough.
I'm actually loving the cooler evenings. Sleeping has been very pleasant.
There's always a glass half full approach which I find far more positive.
Just my opinion.

Each to their own Homo Erectus.Was being a little tongue in cheek about the no winter thing anyways. Lucky you don't live in Tassie. H2O puts me to shame when it comes to griping he he
Get a good sense of travelling reading your reports ASF.

Absolutely, we've probably never seen anything like it before, at any time of the year in terms of anomalies. It's the consistency that is truly amazing. Early next week could get close to records for a few days and there's not really any break after that either.

Going to feel freezing when we do drop back to normal levels.

PS: Looks like the sea breezes will be very light every day so it will be just perfect, even better than summer.

IMO generally April is quite a stable weather pattern. It's like a lot of times WR you've mentioned that it's quite dreary and showery not huge frontal systems moving through the region. So until we get that huge system things will stay constant, like even last year after the big heat from Jan-Feb there was a super trough to end it in March along with the remnants of Ex TC Debbie. Right now is uncharted territory, heat records just keep rolling on.
