Very mild spell out this way past 3 days: 19.8/21.6/19.0 C.

Circa 30mm rain accumulated here over the past month, after a drought pair of months preceding, at least has encouraged a few blossums to emerge, esp. the wattles, typical of this time of year.

Reached a top of 17.3C here in Belgrave yesterday. An interesting day weatherwise!

It was mostly fine until lunchtime, when it became cloudy with showers (locally heavy, with some beautiful rainbows while at work in Box Hill) as a weak front brushed through, then the weather cleared up towards evening. No measurable rainfall sadly. frown

The temperature dropped sharply to 9.9C late in the arvo following the frontal passage, and it wasn't very windy for the most part. But the next front is approaching, and the temperature has risen a few degrees to around 11C, and it's become quite blustery yet again! eek

A sunny mild and calm day. As dusk descends a frigid, icy feel in the still air.

Hi guys! smile

It's been a very long time since my last post in mid-August! I've been exceptionally busy, and as a result I've fallen way behind. Time to catch up, but I'll keep things brief lol. Good to be back! smile

Overall, a very cold, wet and gloomy end to Winter 2017, with no shortage of rainfall (at times heavy). Also some occasional fog and bitter frost as well, compensated by some gloriously mild, sunny days, not-to-mention some quite blustery, stormy weather! smile



No shortage of bitterly cold, miserable weather between August 15th and August 21st (following the 22.2C high on August 14th). The wind and rain were particularly unpleasant on August 19th when my fiancee and I were out in the Yarra Valley (Yarra Glen and later Healesville), a shame we didn't go up to Mount Donna Buang to see any of the snow that had settled. frown



August 23rd reminded us of just how notoriously crazy Melbourne's weather can be! I was at work in Box Hill btw. The day started out kinda mild and mostly sunny, but windy and increasingly unsettled with a few potentially thundery showers about the place. Then at around 4pm, a vigorous cold front blasted in, accompanied by a very stormy squall line! No thunder or lightning, but a very dark, threatening shelfie raced overhead, followed by icy gales and about 2 hours worth of torrential rain! smile

My family here in Belgrave reported heavy hail as the storm swept through, and we had a bit of fog around later that night.



The 0.9C minimum on August 28th is my lowest August minimum on record; my previous record August low is 1.7C on August 3rd 2014. My record low still remains at 0.6C on July 19th 2016.

Here's my report for the first 9 days of September 2017:

Friday September 1st 2017
Low: 4.0C High: 20.0C Rain: 0mm


Saturday September 2nd 2017
Low: 10.3C High: 20.3C Rain: 0mm


Sunday September 3rd 2017
Low: 15.2C High: 18.1C Rain: Trace


Monday September 4th 2017
Low: 7.6C High: 14.2C Rain: 5.2mm


Tuesday September 5th 2017
Low: 4.8C High: 9.9C Rain: 1mm


Wednesday September 6th 2017
Low: 4.0C High: 12.0C Rain: 10.5mm


Thursday September 7th 2017
Low: 7.5C High: 15.1C Rain: 3.2mm


Friday September 8th 2017
Low: 4.8C High: 15.1C Rain: 9.5mm


Saturday September 9th 2017
Low: 6.0C High: 17.2C Rain: 4.2mm


Except for the first two days of the month and for today (which certainly felt springlike), September 2017 has been very cold and wet! Not that I'm complaining about the additional rainfall though. smile


Very typical "September/October Pre-Cold Front Weather" (as I like to call it) on September 2nd/3rd. It was very windy (with increasingly cloud and light rain during the afternoon and evening) on September 2nd, and the temperature fluctuated wildly during the following night and into the early hours of September 3rd! It dipped to 15.2C around 6pm (my first 15C+ night since April 25th, when it dipped to 15.1C), then spiked to around 18C after midnight, no thanks to howling northerly winds. eek crazy

The cold front swept in around 9am, bringing heavy rain and a sharp temperature drop. It plummeted to 10.2C just before midday, and then stayed around 12C with chilly winds and showers for much of the afternoon.


The rest of the week (up until today) was cold, wet, and windy as one cold front after another swept through! Note that the 9.9C maximum on Tuesday is my coldest September day (and spring day for that matter) on record, beating the 12.0C maximum on September 8th 2015! It also ties with August 7th for my coldest day for 2017! eek eek


As for today, it start cold and showery up until about lunchtime. The afternoon was milder and partly cloudy with plenty of sunshine! smile

Further to my last post, we had a few rounds of small hail on Thursday night and Friday morning. smile

I collected an additional 1mm of rain in the last 24 hours btw. Currently around 6C. smile
