Thought I'd open a thread for the pending
Cold front due to hit vic on Tuesday 29th.

Could be showery with some snow down to
Around 1000m?

Something to chat about, so will see how this
One pans out.

Cheers

Thank you new page and we need more rain that matters as May is running dry only 36mm out of 57.8mm .

From Jan 1st to May 27th we only had 82.7mm out of 117.7mm average is very terrible year as surface is dry hard cracking.

Latest from GFS:



Moots an ECL, so the X factor is there, but I bet I'm joining fellow local skeptics that any upside development that might benefit Gippsland Vic probably wont happen. When Huey decides not to allow rain, ....he can be pretty stubborn.

We got nothing out of the front/rain band. A few spots soon after dawn but nothing recordable. Heard from friends there were some noisy storms around Bendigo - CA?

How good is it to hear rain reports in other parts of Vic grin

Nice shower here, bit over 1mm so far, quite calm. Today the forecast W @ 22kmph was late arriving, nice day for wandering on the cycle, borderline cool/cold.

Didn't spot P, in secret training ?

Pretty classy weather station Lindsay!

28mm is pretty bloody crap Samboz.We are up to 55.6mm for May at home. Still badly need some good falls up at our other place near Lakes.
And yeah the Weather Station would want to be flash mate. Have invested / wasted over $2k so far on it. Just don't tell my wife smile

Seasonal outlook from Bureau of Meteorology predicts warm dry winter for SE Australia

Dry conditions in the Bendigo region are expected to continue into winter, according to the Bureau of Meteorology’s Winter Outlook report, released on Thursday morning.

I agree we are having cold nights and warm day time is High Pressure keep bring warmer uppers from NW outback into SE Australia.

No further rain here today, that 1.5mm lifted me to 27.1mm for May. A season without an Autumn break for N Gippsland.

.....guess May indicates an improvement; given only 16mm March, and 5mm for April! - we average slightly over 50mm/month over the long term.
