ACCESS has 3 lows/cold fronts between now and approx next Fri/Sat; the best (for S/E Vic) looks to be the last next Fri 10th.
(Extends thread dates, sorry Dooga')
Anything could evolve in the next week when the fronts are this far out but here is hoping some dry areas get a worthy fall of rain.
Plenty of cold air masses involved, down to 532, going to be a cool week grin

S/W and N/E appear to do the best re rain (GFS) 8 day.

Should top up alpine snow levels also, be welcome to the resorts and later on for irrigators.

Including possibly a real cold outbreak next weekend!
How do I change(extend) this thread dates?

The wet cold does help most Southern Victoria and parts of Northern Country is good news with few fronts and dry drought killer weather pattern just on edge in South NSW not effecting Victoria at moment.

100% NSW in Drought and winter almost over

1-3mm around melb and lots more wind

1.5mm in past couple of days from a few v. light showers. The predominance of Nth sector winds really cruels Gippsland for rain.

Very dry here in N GIppy through to Cann R.

Tallied 2mm for this event (hopefully get a shower or two tonight) to up the tally a little.

When will it rain here? - 26mm last month, 6.75mm this month so far (normally 62.5mm/month).

Samboz - if the bar ran dry, then its straight to bowls instead.

Yes, Logansi, there's a real, deep, dryness. Long time to go until "normal" fire season ... but if there's not a significant change, a serious situation is developing.
