Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 26/05/2005 17:16

I've just put in this thread for discussing weather forecasts, conditions etc relating to Melbourne and Victoria. Yes, its still dry, rather overcast in Melb, but remaining very clear in Mildura. Friday's cold front should give everyone a fair share of rain, but after that, a new High pressure cell is likely to settle in from Monday onwards...

That air behind the front looks VERY COLD indeed!

Look at the latest weather chart here:

Just a question..do Warm Fronts ever actually affect Victoria in general? Please enlighten me!

well from where i am sitting it is god damned freezing cold right now BRRRRRR!!!! Hardly any rain has fallen in Paynesville/eaglepoint in the almost 3 months i have been here. Drizzle here and there but nothing to report. The nights (apart from tonite) are usually quiet mild , actually some nights it is eerilie mild,. But for the last 3-4 days the wind has been blowing a gale and the usually doormant bay has been producing white caps( no good 4 surfing of course)......

Was going to say not a breath of wind here - just by looking outside, but the Monash Weather station says otherwise!

Hey Saab, and welcome to the forum!

Warms front in principle don't generally affect Victoria, unless they're occluded, but even then, you need a very deep depression and a fairly hefty LWT to generate that sort of cyclogenesis. smile

Victoria gets up to half a dozen a year, but most aren't officially analysed (except by people who have their noses glued completely to the weather..... laugh ) - although I do remember one that passed over a couple f years ago and because it was analysed, had satpics put up and sounding, oddly enough there were more warm fronts analysed on the MSL that year wink

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 27/05/2005 00:35

and with any rain forecast for Friday, will we NOT break the record for the driest may? How much more rain do we need?

PS with relatives coming from overseas in July, if this dry weather continues, they may be able to enjoy the outdoors and not get wet.
Posted by: Blair Trewin

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 27/05/2005 09:02

Melbourne is already well past its record for driest May - any suggestion otherwise is a misquote. Records which are definitely still on are driest autumn on record for Melbourne, and for Victoria generally (the statewide record is virtually certain).
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 27/05/2005 11:52

Latest BoM forecast suggests cloud and showers for the rest of the week in Melbourne. That high I think is actually nudging west allowing cold SW winds to blow over Victoria for the forecast period.

MELBOURNE
Saturday
Few showers and gusty wind easing during the afternoon. Min 9 Max 15

Sunday
Morning shower or two.
Min 8 Max 16

Monday
Fine.
Min 7 Max 16

Trend for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday

Few showers clearing later in the period. Cool.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 27/05/2005 15:26

With four days to go we are still just in sight of the driest May ever, although 1mm would now stuff that up. However it's hard to see where that 1mm would come from.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 27/05/2005 16:02

well at this stage it's a fairly bleak outlook for the next week with cold cloudy weather expected frown
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 27/05/2005 16:34

the latest Melbourne forecast...

Tonight and Saturday
A few showers, mostly during the morning. A fresh to strong southwesterly wind
moderating later in the day.

Min 9 Max 15

Sunday
Morning shower or two. Min 8 Max 16

Monday
Fine day. Few showers at night. Min 7 Max 16

Tuesday
Few showers. Min 10 Max 15

Trend for Wednesday, Thursday and Friday
Shower or two clearing. Cool.

Overcast and cold for a whole week and then some! Is this a sign of things to come?

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 28/05/2005 12:23

some decent west to east moving fronts with some rain bands followed by a deep SW flow with coldies and hail would be nice!!
get rid of these highs!!! pressures over PNG remain a bit low with lingering monsoonal activity and weak lows across the solomons, any chance this could be keeping our highs further south?
Posted by: Twisters

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 28/05/2005 12:55

Yeah looks like those West East moving fronts still a few weeks off yet lol yeah a Heavy rain band and Coldies with hail is what i was lokking forward to when moveing to melbourne i those thouse fronts will cum in Sept and Oct u just watch winter gonna be Late and long i reckon

if I were to live in country Victoria I'd choose Mildura first and foremost for the HOT, HOT summers, constant sunshine (I absolutely adore heat and sunshine smile ) and for the great big thunderstorms!! laugh

now, today's cold, drizzle weather will last all week in Melbourne frown So far its 3 overcast days and counting......

Sunshine and cool temps around 17C will be dominant in Mildura. smile

Hey Twister
I actually went up to the Mildura region during the first half of April into some spectacular hot weather! Out of the 10 days, about 7-8 were above 30C and two were around 35-36C with a 22C night man I was lovin it!! I would love to be there during summer the 30-40C days and 20-30C nights combined with storms would be magic!!!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 29/05/2005 22:21

yeah Twister I remember one September day in 2002? when it got to 37C eek in mildura with only 22C in Melb thats spectacular considering that it's barely out of winter!

Man I'm drooling over those temps 47C and storms lol that is amazing. Ive read your posts Twister on that heatwave and was astounded to read that at like midnight was still 37C just beautiful weather!!! BRING ON SUMMER! smile

Today's weather in my neck of the woods was fairly ordinary overcast all day but cleared off for the night. Quite cold aswell!

Melbourne's weather will finally clear up on Thursday smile but rainfall was not really what it was made out to be by he weatherman!

Melbourne's being gripped by constant cloud lately hopefully we'll see some sun soon. Today was overcast & cold yet again with some drizzle at my south eastern sunburbs. NW Vic had crisp clear conditions, getting down to 0.7C eek in Mildura overnight (however, Renmark, a similar location just over the S.A border got to near
-2C!!!) NW Vic will at this stage receive crisp, cool sunny weather for the forseeble period.

For Melbourne: 10 to 15C COLD a few showers hopefully decent this time!

Hey Twister do you have on you your Min temps observations from that massive Mildura heatwave?

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 31/05/2005 16:09

Interesting comparison of avg daily sun for May at Melbourne and Mildura I got from the BoM.

So far: Melb has an avg of 5.5 hrs / day for May
which I think is around 55-60% of max possible
Total hours amassed: 164 hrs

Mildura is on 8.1 hours/day which would be near 80% of max possible for this time of year.
Total hrs amassed: 244 hrs smile

For Melbourne its now offically a whole week of overcast sunless days. Lets see some SUNSHINE happening now! smile

The cloudline is close to the outer northern suburbs of Melbourne where some colder temps are presently being experienced.

Tonight it will be colder and hopefully the cloud can clear this afternoon but I am not holding my breathe. However it does appear to be thinner and there are a few cracks of blue sky appearing.

I think it's great to find out what is happening over the other side of the city, because the weather is different. So, don't stop posting because you may think it is annoying! It's not!

It was a beautiful day today. Nice to see the sun again and do some gardening! I just wish it would POUR all day! Preferably not over the long weekend, but at this stage, beggars can't be choosers! Looks like the sun will be out again tomorrow!

was nice to wake up to sunshine this arvo (on the graveyard shift this week). pity i slept thru such a nice day!!

PS just a few questions i hope people can answer for me. I know western melbourne tends to be drier than eastern melbourne, however would anyone know where the driest part of melbourne is? I have always thought it was in the werribee area but i could be wrong.

secondly, i know its still a while away but can we safely say that most of winter will be like this, dry? I have friends coming over from Italy on the 1st of July for 5 weeks and am wondering if i should risk smile planning outdoor activities. Or will this break and we will be confined indoors for 5 weeks?

thanks again all

hey norfolk yeah the laverton area is pretty dry with 550mm but I'm pretty sure the area in between Bacchus Marsh and avalon is the driest with average rainfalls of around the 500mm mark or even lower. smile

NW area will get a "mild" spell with 19-20C days forecast for Mildura but at Renmark, a similar location just over the S.A border from Mildura will see 23C days eek so I'm assuming that it will actually be closer to 22C in Mildura over the next few days?? Renmark's forecast calls for "late rain" on Wed so it's looking good indeed smile Melbourne's temps look quite normal for this time of year so no real warm spell forecast down here at the moment anyway.

just a question....I measure the temp at my home with a standard alcohol (or is it mercury) in glass thermometer hanged on a fence in the shade on the north side of my house. Does this give fairly accurate readings? Btw, the back of the fence is shielded by trees so the sun doesn't bake it! Any thoughts?
Currently, it's showing 9C.

Melbourne now sitting on 20C, should easily crack 21 and maybe even 22 if there isn' too much cloud around. I've got 18 at my place smile
Mildura warming up rapidly should easily crack 23 maybe even 25! currently around 20 up there.

sunny most of the day, some cloud rolled over but then sunny again.

min: 7.4 Max: 20.5

in regard to accurate measurements, i just own 2 outdoor themometers. One that measures night the other day. The reason why i have the 2 is because i have never found one spot in my yard or outdoors where the accuracy was fine day or night. Either the nights were accurate if i placed it out the front, days were accurate if placed at the side of the house. So the australian geographic store got more money from me LOL

looks like we could break another record tomorrow!
i keep a ther. hanging on a piece of pergola, its protected from sun and wind undercover, i find that temps are generally close to the obs at moorabbin, however my night temps are sometimes warmer due to the heating from the house (about 2meters away), so i sometimes hang it on the clothes line on really cold nights.
not very accurate at all really but i am not a carpenter and havent been able to find any stephenson screens at big w to date.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 08/06/2005 09:49

I reckon we could see record temps happening today. 9am temps across the state are around 2-5C warmer than yesterday so mid 20's are certain across the N / NW regions, Melbourne should see low 20's with the clear sky.

I hang my thermo hanging from a sun and wind protected fence my daytime readings are close to those at scoresby but tends to drop rapidly during the evening. The fence is adjecent to my pool would this effect any readings? I actually tried putting a thermo on a plastic container "island" in my pool and one hanging from a fence on a cold night to see any difference in temps, I actually got 7C from my "island" and 0C away form the water on a cold morning.

As for today, yes wasnt it warm, we missed the all time june record by 0.1 degree but records in melbourne suburbs and all over victoria were set.

my temps were Min: 8.6 Max 21.8

also it was an interesting evening last night what happened in scoresby and essendon, was cold/cool in places like Avalon (3.5) cerberus (4.0) Laverton (7.9) and even Moorabbin (4.1) however essendon only dropped to 11.1 and scoresby 13.5!! were these figures correct? Just interesting smile

what a day of contrasts, started sunny but the clouds came from the NW very quickly with a strong wind but no rain fell despite lots of rain not too far to the north and west and south west. Rain finally fell (although pretty light) from about 3.30 and now its just cold and windy. Although with a temp of 15.4 at the moment it really isnt too cold.

Min: 10.9 Max 17.9

these temps are pretty accurate for western suburbs Avalon 17.7 Laverton 18.4 Airport 17.6

City and eastern suburbs were warmer, is that because no rain or less wind or less cloud cover? Someone answer?

today's a nice mild day with scattered cumulus around Melb. So far Melb has 18.3C but east gippsland again is warmer with Bairnsdale topping out at 19.5 so far. Cape Otway and Wilson's Prom are suprisingly mild both exceeding 17C. NW Vic today is only around 1C warmer than the south for some reason.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 12/06/2005 18:09

Thunderhead, where is there anywhere in the forecast about cold temps for Melb during the week. Maximums of 16 C are hardly cold.

It looks as though none of the cold pool of air currently located over south WA will reach VIC. The position of that current front is slipping south, maintaining a NW wind over VIC. These mild temps will persist with Showers. VIC will need a shift in winds to a SSW directing cold air from the deep south to trigger any significant COLD event,

We only had 3 drops here today, and that was around 8pm. Great to see a little more rain about....every little bit helps!

Gees... 2 weeks ago we had complaints of dry and warmth. Now it is too wet and cold..?

It is Winter. Most parts of the world would call melb winters mild. How about 3 months of below 0 temps, and temps between 10 - 15 to be normal spring and Autumn. That is what most of Europe, N. Asia and N. America experience. They are lucky to have 4 months above 20 C. Melb has had temps of 20+ since late Sept 2004 until a few days ago. Wake up!

This morniing, around 8am, saw a CB anvil to my south east, with a line of towering cu stretching away to the east with flat tops like the anvil but these were not as tall as the adjecent anvil. Radar showed yellow echo's near Phillip Island I think. But according to the tracker, this was not electrically active.

God Bless that severe storm warning! Radar shows big yellow cell in the bay heading right for me laugh . Only one itsy bitsy problem: a 20/20 chance of no lightning and whats even more likely is the death of that cell before it reaches me. Lets hope for more!

Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 18/06/2005 18:54

I personally reckon we are gonna have a frigid winter. The temps have plundged very suddenly and this weather should be considered as an indication of the season ahead. We should pick up a few 20c days in August esp if the El nino happens, but any warmth till then unlikely frown With luck, once the winter is over (cant wait!) we'll see heaps of 30 and 40 degree days with 20+ degree nights smile Also, Melbourne is in a thunderstorm deprivation crisis and this serious issue must be resolved immediately laugh

Sorry mate, there is nothing wrong with wanting 40 degree days. I love hot weather and would rather have it than this crappy cold stuff we are having.

Norfolk I agree with your boring weather remark fully and totally. Melbourne's missing out on all the storm action but that's typical mad The calculated odds for hail, thunder or anything exciting weatherwise down here is 1 in a billion.

Only some light rain fell here late this afternoon, otherwise it's been a partly cloudy morning and a cloudy afternoon. Looking outside the classroom window after lunch I could see growing cumulus but we all know they would never power into storms.
Posted by: stormygirl

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 21/06/2005 20:30

Well Thunderhead, you may not have to wait too much longer. Tomorrow and Thursday will be around 13 deg in Melbourne with the possibility (ie: very slim chance) of hail, thunder and snow falls around the ranges. I'm keeping my fingers crossed! Or is it just wishful thinking? wink

As for the real storm action, you may just have to wait until october!

It was a lovely morning in the sun, then the clouds rolled in and became quite cold. Didn't get nearly as much rain as I would have hoped, and nothing until around 6pm. There is more heading my way and with any luck it will find it's way onto my garden!

Enjoy the next couple of days Melburnians...it will be cold! Welcome to winter!! smile

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 22/06/2005 09:42

I'm not to worryed about a lack of thunderstorms atm, as Nature should make up for it by giving (hopefully) a very active storm season (October-March). To many thunderstorms at this time of the year will mean a lack of stroms in the storm season, just like what happen in 2002 and the 2002-03 storm season was one of the least active storm season i can remember.


It rain again last night and it has start the same today as yesterday bright sunshine. Some cloud will develop later today and except some showers later today, overnight and into tommrow. cold southerly air is on its way so it will be very cold tonight and tommrow.

weather was completely fine today, infact sunny until lunchtime when a blanket of thin cloud moved in, probably cirrostratus or altostratus as the sun was still visible thru it. Nice red sunset with the scattered-broken mid level cloud. Light winds meant no windchill making the 13c temp more comfortable. Cold snap was confined mainly to the north and Gippsland: Mildura, a place known for its hot climate and sunshine recorded just 11c! NE Vic was below 10c. Brrrrrr

As for rainfall, Melb got 43mm which is just under average but compared to Adelaide's 139mm and Perths 226mm (more to come eek ) it seems like a drop in the ocean but still a big relief to the state smile Sydney only has 1.2mm so we should be happy with what we've got!

Count up the amount of rain you have had this month because you can almost forget about anymore for the month. A high is now moving in and should be in control of our weather for the next 10 days, while Perth gets more rain. Don't get me wrong Perth do deserve good rains as they have suffered years of drought but it would be nice if the high belt was in it normal Winter pattern.

I thought the highs were in they're normal position. This one currently is being forced south by the blocking in the Tasman, but a more significant front and associated LWT is going to move up later next week. Could be a windy and wet start to July.

BTW there could be a minor sprinkle or two early next week with a weak front.

What a beautiful Melbourne winters day it was today!

In Chadstone it began sunny, then fog rolled in around 9am. It appeared to be fairly local, as in Malvern it was completely sunny. The fog didn't lift until around midday. I wish I had my camera with me today as I just love these foggy mornings. Hopefully it will be a repeat tomorrow and I can get out and about and blow away the cobwebs on my camera!

Temp got to 14 deg in Melb (BoM AWS), and 13.1 at Scoresby. Should be another cold one tonight Melburnians, so turn those electric blankets on early! wink

Sun started to come through cloud cover at 2:00pm, by 3:00 ( when I came out of the shopping centre ) the sky was completely clear, however there are signs that the cloud/fog is returning particularly to the south of here. Current temp outside 6.5C.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 28/06/2005 19:19

it's well and truly foggy now. A very interesting observation while out walking my dog at around 5.30pm: there is a walkway on an embankment with a 3 to 5m drop into lower ground on either side. fog patches only around 3-6m high but rather thick was blanketeting the lower areas while the walkway was just above it which was quite a cool sight. I could literally walk above the fog and run down into it laugh

Fog for much of the day in Cranbourne, some sunny periods this but it rolled back in about 5.30pm. After 3.3c overnight the fog kept the Max today to just 10.3c. Right now its 6.5c and visabiliy about 300 metres

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 29/06/2005 15:21

WOW what a day!!! Min of -3.5c at my place this morning, there was fog but it was shallow, and not consistant thru the night allowing heat to escape. Lots of Frost and ice on my fences, a film of ice on me wooden deck in the yard, and lots and lots of white crunchy grass!!! Infact, any dew or water was frozen solid eek A canvas awning in my backyard was covered in beads of ice and a small pool of water was solid rock hard ice, that was awesome laugh never seen it get this cold!

A beautiful sunny day follows an exciting morning laugh currently 13c in my backyard.
Hope it gets just as cold again, but unikely as the wind was stronger today than previously and cloud forecast 2moro frown

One more thing, anyone who is familiar with the Timbarra Estate in Berwick please give me an estimate of the elevation of the area 'coz I just wanna know if that would contribute to my temps.

ok judging by BoM's forecast we'll have a wintry spell from today on till most of next weeek. What would really impress me is a 500mm downpour like at the gold coast today, rather than days of drizzle and cloud.

Hmmm..Melbourne only recieved a measly 5.6 hrs of sunshine yesterday, I could've sworn it was sunny from around 8.30-9am onwards. Damn, the CBD must have cloudy climate!! For the city, that would've meant no sun until around 11am. Yep, my backyard must have a sunnier climate laugh

david I'm in the same boat as you mate. I havent seen lightning since Dec, and then it was only a few flashes 'coz all the damn storms just died before they reached me or went around me completely mad , I forgot what thunder sounds like. Honestly, melbourne's climate has been $h!t lately: no summers for the last 2 years(except dec 2003, Apr 2005) as for storms - hell are they freakin' privelidge to have now or what?? mad frown Back in my primary school days I could remember boiling hot summers, massive storms, but now, a whole lot of nothing frown

Btw people, don't use winter as an excuse for a lack of storms 'coz in August last year a brilliant lightning show occured and lets not forget the action in Adelaide earlier this month!

Forecast says showers and cold from Sat and all next week. I think a pattern is arising here: a week of fine sunshine, then a week of showers.

I got a couple of showers yesterday just a couple of mm in the gauge. Light rain has been falling this morning, except some clearing up later this afternoon. We may see some brief sunshine later also. laugh It a shame that we missed out on the Storms that occured in Northern Victoria. frown

Thunderhead, December 2003 was a great month we had some really good thunderstorms and above avarage tempertures, Dec 3rd was mad we had a lightning rate of one per second for 3 hours got 8mm here well up the road got 67mm. Feburary 2002 was the best month for storms that I can remember with 7 thunderdays, shame that tempertures were below avarage.

Dec 2003 was excellent great storms and hot temps laugh

since then I only remember one proper storm that occured in my area that was in august 2004 great lightning show! I missed out on the Dec 2004 and Jan 2005 storms 'coz they either died or never made it down here.

Hello everyone
today started off rather unstable, with massive cumulus popping up to the north and east, some potentially reaching CB status, but never quite making it across the finish line frown Afternoon was cool to cold and very ordinary cloudwise, with all the promising cu's spreading into your over-the-counter stratocumulus, very boring to look at. DP's were probaby way to low to fuel the cumulus, only around 4-7 in the metro area. Anyone having trouble falling asleep, just look at a deck of grey stratus wink

Max temp in city was 17c. The morning was mild and the afternoon was chilly. Now, around 5/8 cloud cover here. Appears to be mid level layer cloud.

way hotter than Jan and Feb laugh Rainfall spot on smile Sunshine hours felt like they would've been only average, I think we got 4.5hrs/day for June just of the top of my head.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 08/07/2005 20:39

Today was a broadly similar day to yesterday, except that it was much colder! Some stratus came and went in the morning. Once again, significant cu development was going on mid morning onwards. One tower reached 14,000 ft over Phillip Island, 60km to my south. Looked impressive and really could've had potential but its growth was apparently capped at around 14 to 15,000ft. Therefore it eventually disappeared. Most cu's today didn't get very far up, maybe 10,000ft the very max. Broken mid-level cloud took up residence all day, but cleared in the afteroon to reveal cirrus. Some cu again south of the heads this evening. Possibly will reach only 14,000ft with nocturnal cooling.

Max temp was 13.7c in the city.

an overcast and drizzly / rainy day today. Our coldest winter day so far just 10.3c recorded in Melb. Well, Forecasts and models say showers and cloud for at least the next 7 days frown 3 or 4 days of cloudy weather is enough thanks! Now, this is truly winter and all winter buffs should be satisfied with the current conditions and outlook (that's you Fall Leaves! smile )

Yes a cold day right across Victoria with most places struggling to reach 10c. Here in Cranbourne we got to 10.9c the same as the City. A few spots of rain before but not enough to register in the gauge. Looks like a few more cold days ahead with at least some rain on most of those days

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 14/07/2005 16:19

cold and overcast again but clouds look more 'juicy' or 'stormy' than the typical stratus layer that we've seen so far. Starting raining around 2pm mostly light. BoM also mentions "possible isolated storms near the coast". The moist unstable air combined with a jet stream may indeed sprout some coldies with a few rumbles...

just a general interest thing here:- the GFS is predicting a monster 1044hPa high eek practically over Vic mid to late next week and if this happens, we could get some especially cold temps at night laugh

Another chilly day in Cranbourne temperature reached 11.6c at 12.30pm.some showers between 1.30pm and 2.30pm gave us 3mm's and dropped the temperature back to 10c.
Looks like more cold weather with rain later Saturday into Sunday with good snowfalls in alpine areas

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 15/07/2005 17:24

another re-run of yesterday. Bit of drizzle/light rain nothin else. So far July sun hours average a ultra microscopic 2.8 hrs/day and Melbourne is the cloudiest place in oz atm
frown not a good title to hold. IMO average daily winter sunshine below 4.5hrs/day is sad. Anyway Sat looks interesting, with a fine morning, if mostly sunny it will allow convection to happen and when that interacts with the change later in the day we may get a few flashes and rumbles...and BoM seems to agree smile

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 15/07/2005 20:19

wow that's an interesting fact, stormygirl eek
If it's the coldest in 9 years then you know its winter lol...but I wouldn't be surpised if this month ends up being the cloudiest ever!

lets hope our summer will be the hottest since "the Earth was a molten ball of lava, some 4 billion years ago" as said by Kent Brockman in The Simpsons during a Springfield heatwave!

I've just finished browsing thru the BoM's monthly weather records and I just couldn't believe how rotten cold our 2004/5 summer was! If that happens again I'm haulin' my behind up to Darwin!

Atm I can see stars - a good omen for a sunny morning, which will get convection going....

Yes Norfolk! This from the BoM:

A cold front will approach the Bight tonight before crossing Victoria during
Saturday. A high pressure system will then develop over South Australia during
Sunday before becoming almost stationary near the Mallee on Monday and Tuesday.


We 'should' be rain free for Wednesday and Thursday according to the models and the synoptic chart. Emphasis on 'should'! It's Melbourne....it's anyone's guess! (That's my disclaimer wink )

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 17/07/2005 11:39

i lived in melbourne for 9 years. Its a nice city,but the weather is often crap. thats why i moved to cessnock,the supercell town of Australia.

the best storm i saw in melbourne was in the early 90's,cant remember the exact date but in summer sometime. lovely hp supercell and some nice hail with it.nothing compared to NSW,but good nevertheless.

i feel sorry for u down there.but spring is fairly close now. in 2months time you should be seeing warmer temps,and hopefully some storms. BRING ON SPRING.Woo-hoo!
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 17/07/2005 13:08

I totally agree with you My Dog Likes storms. Melbourne's climate doesn't appeal to me at all
frown The thing is I really love hot weather, and going to Renmark in April for 10 days, it got to 36c and around 7 of the 10 days were above 30! And evenings were a shirt and shorts affair (although a few mornings were quite chilly!) That was very nice laugh

Summers are really, like um...unreliable in Melbourne. Sometimes you have an excellent hot summer (1998, 1999, 2001) or a pure rotten one (2002, 2004, 2005). Winters are too drab. So far, this July's average daily sunshine amounts to a really sad 2.8hrs mad Ironically, Melbourne is among the driest of Australia's capitals this winter. And it even has it's own personal desert (the western region) laugh

I reckon the nearest 'hot climate' town to Melbourne is Mildura. There, you are guaranteed a summer, 300 sunny days a year, and some truly phenomenal electrical storms eek Something worth knowing is that this winter, Mildura was treated to FOUR lightning active storms!
Posted by: David

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 17/07/2005 13:35

The 2000-01 Summer was very hot but also dry with only a couple of decent thunderstorms.
1997-98 Summer was quite hot with a quite a few thunderstorms.

Thunderstorm wise the Summers of (that I clear remember) 1997-98, 1998-99, 2001-02 and 2003-04 were great. last Summer was good for much of the state except the eastern Melbourne metro area.

The Summers of 1996-97, 1999-00, 2002-03 were terrible, the was hardly any storm activity. I also don't like the fact that they are 3 years apart so if that countinued this summer would be rubbish although records show a little more storm active summers in 1993-94 and 1990-91.

Anyway on to today weather. A few showers are now affect the Southeastern suburbs as the sun is helping with development, small hail is still possible but it is to stable for any thunderstorms now.

alright folks, my 2nd melbourne winter and i am a bit confused. it seems the continental highs are still too big for this time of year, and the fronts have no punch. melbourne itself is yet to have a decent burst of SW'ers. any ideas whats going on?
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 18/07/2005 21:06

Um...guys we just had a very cold week - 11c days and rain/showers. It's practically as cold as we're gonna get in winter!!! So far, we are well on the way to very low sunshine hours for july and I myself, having spent the first 16 years of my life here, have never seen such a drab july eek From next friday onwards it's gonna be showery so winter buffs, be happy wink

Anyways, Melbourne's winter rain totals come mostly from drizzle mad and lighter rain showers. Heavy rain doesn't occur often. Mick10, I'm pretty sure this is what a typical winter here should be -drab, drizzly and boring!!! Fronts are properly going now by the looks of it and they bring dull drizzly light rain as seen last week.

Apparently, the high will move north, allowing a few fronts to bring the famous Melbourne overcast drizzle on friday thru till next week and beyond frown hopefully will be clear before then.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 19/07/2005 10:45

I agree with Mick10. Yes. it was cold last week, but it was not cold due to a significant
Artic Blast. It was mearly cold due to persistant cloud.

We are yet to see a cold front this winter with specled cloud and a Artic Cold pool of air bringing with it very cold air and a mix of showers, hail, snow and wind. The front which past last Sat night was close to what I am talking about although cleared very quickly.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 19/07/2005 16:06

today was another unspectacular day, if a little mild at 16c. Why is it mostly cloudy when the baro is reading 1036hPa confused

2moro and Thurs look good but then a return of cloudy and showery weather. probably wont be really cold, maybe 12 or 13c at the least as the flow will be a more W to WSW'ly rather than SW or S'ly. But boy will it be cloudy for a loooooooooooonnng time mad The next high is a long way away and the fetch of the airstream over the ocean will be very long and therefore cloudy and showery weather will persist for perhaps a week.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 19/07/2005 18:30

to respond to mick....... this would be a melbourne winter! maybe a bit dryer than normal but otherwise dull and dreary. Remember we are one of the more dryer capitals, dryer than sydney, brisbane, darwin and if I am not mistaken perth is wetter than us as well. And living in the more drier part of melbourne, anything heavy is not a regular occurence here. This image that the rest of australia has of melbourne being a very wet city is very much mistaken! (ok thats my say!)

today clear and sunny with some high cloud in the arvo.....

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 20/07/2005 17:26

today was partly cloudy despite the 1040.5hPa baro readings in melbourne. The actual high centre was 1043hPa according to the charts. Certainly no cold nights as one would be led to believe as there is more of a N breeze.

However, from Friday, and undefinate period of cloud and shower will follow. Models show a belt of high pressure in the subtropics, with a band of westerlies below the belt exhibiting a very long fetch over the bight and Indian ocean slamming into the south east. A center of high pressure over W.A later in the week will be strongly elongated E-W and slow moving, further enhancing the westerly flow over Vic. Even at GFS +168, the high belt will maintain a very sustained westerly fetch at latitudes below about S34 deg, particulary around SE australia.

My prediciton is for a solid 2 weeks of cloudy showery conditions from friday onwards.

East Gippsland looks to be consistantly 2c warmer than Melb over the next week, courtesy of the foen effect or whatever you call it. Mildura apparenlty will remain fine with 16c days.

Melbourne will live up to its winter reputation for the next week, while sydney sparkles in 20c warmth. How typical! Just like last year.

weather report from lorne!(well thats where I was today smile ) perfect winters day down along the coast, wind was fresh down at Anglesea however was lighter at Lorne with some gusts here and there. Clear blue skies, perfect day to show the 'italians' our wonderful coastline smile

well back to work tomorrow frown

Caroline Springs Min: 1.3 Max 15.1

if shoerrs predicted, be assured not much will fall here.

Just a question. I am sure it's been answered before but just curious to know what wind directions are best suited to rainfall in melbourne. I know other factors like rain bands may effect this question. But on showery days, would a SW give more rain to Melb compared to a southerly or south-easterly?

Just curious........ Thanks and keep up the good work!!! smile

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 22/07/2005 16:33

most of today was clear and mild but altocu/st started appearing on the horizon around 3pm. Now it's scattered mid level cloud. Max temp in Melb was 18.2c which is nice but the strong winds made it feel cooler. Avalon scored 19.3c, and highest half hour obs for regional towns are: Mildura 19.2, Orbost 18.8, Hopetoun 19.6c.

Okay, Forecast for melbourne is crap. 'Only' 17c 2moro (when compared to adelaide, sydney, east gippsland, Mildura etc) followed by 15 on sunday, 15 on Monday and 16 on tuesday. Very garden variety winter temps.

Orbost, however, will see 20c tomorrow (after 19 today), followed by 19 on Sun, 19 Mon, 18c on Tue. cool Mildura will see 19c 2moro but wont be as mild on sun and next week as east gippsland.

another sunny day today, with some wind which made it feel cool. Having trouble measuring min temps so they will be approx mins smile

Min: 7.4 Max: 17.3

i see temps wont be 12 and 13 as was expected earlier. Why the change?

Another interesting fact from Livinia Nixon tonight.....apparently we have had 40 hours of sunshine this week as compared to last week where we only had 1 hour...... wink

Sorry Norfolk, can't answer your question for you. You can answer this one....have you bought yourself a rain gauge yet? Will be interesting to see just how much of an 'urban desert' you live in! smile
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 22/07/2005 19:55

Norfolk I assume the temps wont dip to 12 or 13 is because the wind flow will be a pure westerly rather than a south westerly or southerly, therefore crossing the comparatively warmer waters of the bight as opposed to the cold southern ocean. Also, The air over the bight area, recieves more solar radiation therefore is significantly warmer, than the air south of tasmania, where south and SW flows tend to originate from.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 22/07/2005 20:47

Cranbourne ranged from 7.4c to 16.9c today.
wind gusted up to 31 knots just after 11am.
Had a few spots of rain here but not enough to register in the gauge.
Pretty boring outlook with temperatures just a little above average and just a few brief showers on most of the next few days but totals should only be a mm or two on most days. Looks like another below average month as far as rain goes

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/07/2005 10:01

pity all those decent showers are south, this high pressure belt is real annoying, about time it went and visited new zealand i think.
thick cloud remains over the cbd but there is clearance towards the NW.
Posted by: norfolk

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/07/2005 16:25

was mostly overcast today, however being in the NW there was some clearence in the sky and the sun shone through for a little bit around lunch time/early afternoon. Warmed the car up a bit smile

min: 9.7 Max 15.6

and no, no rain guage yet...... where could i get one that is cheap and accurate.......
Posted by: Matt Pearce

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/07/2005 16:57

Yep...with the cloud hanging around Melbourne all day they only ended up getting to 15C. Tomorrow is going to be another tricky one...today's cloud band should clear off to the northeast during the morning, and then there should be a few hours of sun before the frontal cloudband moves in late in the afternoon. This could see temperatures rise back into the 17-18C range as forecast by the BoM. But, once again, if the cloud hangs around more than expected, then another 15C is on the cards.
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/07/2005 17:21

that wind was bloody cold certainly not a mild day. I don't know whether the cloud was supposed to burn off or not, but we only managed 15c because of it. Wind made it feel like 5. Mildura made 18.8c? but Orbost failed to reach 20c I knew it was too good to be true, but were some 3c warmer than Melb. I think Ouyen was the warmest center getting 20c.

BoM again saying 17c which could happen as the satpic shows clearance between the band over Vic now and the frontal band. The cloudband should go away during the night, leaving perhaps partly cloudy conditions before the frontal band arrives. Next few days a very sustained westerly flow will occur, creating days of kr@ppy overcast weather and temps in the 15c/16c region for Melbourne. The good news is that we are officially past the half way point of winter-days will only grow warmer and longer laugh

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/07/2005 19:15

Hi all. Another cloudy day across the city. Small temperature range here from 11.9c to 14.4c. The city recahed 15.3c which is about two degrees above average. With the cloud and wind it felt a lot colder. A line of showers moving across the bay at the moment, but I expect them to weaken.
Norfolk I have four rain gauges including an official BOM 203mm diameter gauge and a German rain gauge. But I also have a plastic 100mm guage made by Nylex i think. This is just as accurate as the other gaues and only costs $30 to $40. Australian Gerographic had them on special for $30 earlier this year. Jane O'Neill of ASWA was also selling them to ASWA menbers for $30 earlier this year but I think she has sold them all now :cheers:

Windy and mild here before the rain. Wind gusted to 34 knots just after 11am. Temperature reached 16.2c at 11.11am. Just over 6mm's of rain. Most of the showers have gone now but we should see some more later tomorrow. Not that good news for skiers as its to warm for snow except on the highest peaks.

Min: 8.0 Max: 16.5
(3 days in a row where my max was warmer than the city's, not usual for this time of the year, must be the westerly or north westerly winds smile )

almost 20 yesterday at 18.5 here (which I will round up to 19 smile ) will we get a 20 this year in August? I hope so!!!

Another Windy day with the wind gusting up to 34 knots again today. After almost 7mm's of rain overnight a couple of showers late in the day but they were so light they barely registered in the gauge. Temps today in Cranny 9.5c to 15.3c.
Norfolk good chance of a 20 plus in August especially late in the month. The August average is about 15c but thr record is about 26c

3mm of rain today, the cold and windy weather does get annyoing but we need the rain still, good steady soaking rain instead of the rubbish drizzly stuff would do.

I love very warm weather but ain't a fan of long heatwaves. I don't like very dry summers either. I enjoy it when we get frequent thunderstorms with some rain. Hoping for good storms this summer but as I metion earlier for some reason every 3rd summer has a lack of storms (Hopefully it doesn't this time)

O.K. A beautiful morning. A promising top of 18c. Sun shining, mild breeze kicks in, temps starts rising. A mostly sunny day according to the BoM. Suddenly, without forecast, a torrent of strato-cu gatecrashes the party resulting in a cold and overcast day. We got just 14.7c, 4 short of the forecast. Today was just another winter's day. Twister summed it up well: YUCK!

Mildura was great today, sunny and 21c. They can expect 20c temps till Thursday they are so lucky.

Tomorrow a top of 16 is expected. I think the BoM is being optimistic here. Melbourne can expect mild 17-18c days Mon till Thurs but as we found out today, it's not certain.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 31/07/2005 19:48

mostly sunny hey Norfolk....I think the west must have a sunnier climate than the east wink here was more like broken cloud thru the entire day. 18c tomorrow should be nice sunny. BoM have been underestimating Melb's temps for the last 2 or 3 days (bar yesterday) so we could exceed the 18 if there is little or no cloud. Tuesday BoM say 17 but GFS 850 temps will be around 6 over Melb so I say Tuesday should be around 19 perhaps even 20 if there is no cloud.

Yeh, it was that friggin stratus crud again. Looking at the BoM obs, all southern centers were cold today (yes even east gippsland) while Mildura lived up to it's reputation exceeding 20c. Tomorrow BoM saying 21c for Mildura what a beauty but 18c in Melb I don't know what to think of that. Before temps were underestimated, now they are overestimated.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 02/08/2005 16:49

ahhhhh today was brilliant blue skies and 18c! I finally got my 18 lol laugh Mildura got above 20 again, highest 1/2 hour obs is 20.5 so we'll have to wait to get max temp there. Cape Otway was actually warmer than Melb today reaching around 18.5c.

Today was IMO a typical hot day pattern. West melb was warmer than the city, getting to 19.6 at avalon and 19.2? at Geelong. Western Vic had rapidly warmed up in the morning, resulting in temps above 19c at Port Fairy (a hot place when a N wind kicks in) and cape Nelson. Many Great Ocean Road centers at least matched Melb's max temps. Yes, for me a very familiar hot day pattern.

For Tomorrow: Mildura again going for 20c with rain and isolated storms moving in during the arvo. Melbourne going for 18 thats great news then cold afterwards. Tonight it will be interesting to watch the nocturnal temps in Cape Otway and Wilson's prom as N winds strengthen and possibly keep temps in the mid teens thru the night.

cape Otway still on 15c and IMO will stick to that thru the night as warm N winds strenghten. Melbourne on 13c but Avalon rose from 10.5c to 11.9c in 1/2 hour - meaning winds are starting to pick up arresting the temps rate of descent. At my place it's getting windier. I'm gonna be interested to see temps in the morning with the wind - esp at Otway and Wilsons Prom (very hot places at night immediately ahead of fronts in summer). Going by the satpics, should be fairly clear in the morning with cloud increasing perhaps around noon before the change sometime in the arvo. Another warm one to look forward too! laugh

Today started of cool in Melb with showers/storms north of Melbourne and some showers to the east of the city. A heavy shower came thru my area at around 9am then conditions became clear. The wind chill was quite significant today as I was quite cold! The overnight min was an unremarkable 10c but at Wilson's Prom, the official 9am-9am min is 14c eek

Today was warm in the NW, W, central and gippsland districts. Mildura scored 22c, and towns along the SW and great ocean road coast, including Cape Otway, exceeded 20c. Same for East Gippsland. Around Melbourne, the highest temps were 22c at Avalon and Laverton (Melb's very own hot climate areas wink ). The official Melb reading was only 19.5c, thanks to a really poorly positioned AWS mad yeah that Melb AWS is no good IMO it should be in the well exposed Birrarung Marr.

WOW what a change!!! After the storms last night, woke up to persistant rain. Wind chill was a major factor too today, felt REALLY COLD up in Sunbury. Reports of snow at Riddles Creek and Gisborne but I cant confirm that. If there was snow there no wonder it felt cold in Sunbury!!

Showers on and off all day up there with soft hail falling at lunch time.

A perfect winters day for those who like wet and cold smile

today really reminded me of Jan and Feb 2005! cold, cloudy and rainy. rained all morning but no ahil or thunder. low clouds cleared during the arvo and several CB anvils could be seen to the south and west though they didn't appear to contain lightning as one passed over my area, only heavy shower from it. Another cold day 2moro 15c partly cloudy. Mildura just as cold, but will be sunny and 17-18c sat onwards for them.

Tomorrow is likely to be cloudy frown cold 15c for the next 4 days cloudy typical crap winter weather hopefully summer wont be delayed.

today is just like the Jan and Feb in everyway possible - very cold cloudy drizzle. Oh yeah, and seemingly frequent cold fronts lately. I'm rarely this cold - I feel like someone who has just migrated from the Sahara desert or Singapore! My hands are purple, touching my face feels like dunking it in ice. Looking out the window is repulsive and I will cetainly not set foot outside today.

Hmmmm, this is interesting from the BoM:
Central District Forecast: Sunday
Showers about the coast becoming more widespread during the day. Isolated thunderstorms developing along the coast. Cool and mostly cloudy with a fresh northwesterly wind shifting westerly by early afternoon.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 13/08/2005 01:03

Showers cleared this morning revealing partly cloudy skies with some broken cirrus, and altocu.

Tomorrow and currently with a front pushing through some drizzle areas and isolated showers over souther n VIC and about the ranges, will break up and contract to the coast with winds becoming general NNW as they are presently through 75% of southern areas.

Sunday looking OK with strengthening northerly winds to gale force late in the day here in Melbourne and rain developing after midnight.

Rain and the chance of a thunderstorm easing to a few showers later on Monday, most of the showers after the rainband clears should come through late in the day with the passage of a small cold front over southern VIC.

Tuesday sees easing conditions with winds shifting more N again and refreshening from the west later and temps in the mid to high teens.

Wednesday will be fine although becoming cloudy with some rain possible in the NW and W of the state later and a front and cloudband develop over the inland areas of SA.

Potential for some low pressure to form and pass over inland SA, VIC and deepen either in Bass Strait or off the S coast of NSW later in the week.

Rainfall accumualtions should be between 10-50mm in southern areas and 5-35mm in northern areas and over the ranges.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 13/08/2005 09:57

wow August sure is shaping up to be a kr@ppy month weatherwise, so far virtually every day below average and cloudy. Forecast looks very cold mostly 15c and a very high frequency of of rain/showers this better not translate into summer. Only 17 days of this bogan season left laugh then I bet it extend into Sept but if the highs behave (NOT elongating themselves over the subtropics) we'll get some much needed sun and warmth.
Posted by: Adiabatic

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 13/08/2005 11:38

Yeah I wouldnt think that September is any better, with the southern ocean cold frots peaking and the westerly winds also peaking, you expect windy and rather showery weather throughout most of September.

Warmth will come in mid October.

yeah that sounds about right. Forecast very dull, Monday, Tuesday cold windy rainy frown then Wed fine then yet again cold windy rainy. YUCK looks like the crappest weather is occuring in the Aug-Sep period, effectively creating an extended winter mad well, then summer weather should last from Dec-April.

Atm outside it's the familar overcast dreary drab, was fine earlier on Melb got 17c which should be the prevailing temp by now.

I know the weather can be Yuck sometimes at this time of the year, but it this is first real spell of below avarage tempertures for the past 6 months. This winter we have seen above avarage temperture most days until the last couple of weeks.

But like you I am looking foward to Summer,as long as we get warm weather with plenty of thunderstorms that bring some good downpours and none of the drizzle c**p.

Strong winds and rain for Monday with this system. Hopefully some more rain over the catchments

Quite a nice day today with some long sunny intervals and fairly light winds. Clouded over again late in the day but the city reached 17.0c (ave 14.9c) Here in Cranbourne it reached 15.9c.
Similar temperatures tomorrow but not as nice as today with strong to gale force NW winds. Windy and showery on Monday about 15c in the city and 13 or 14c most suburbs. Clearing midweek but another system late next week with see more cool to cold and showery weather

Thunderhead I wouldn't worry to much with tempertures now giving us a taste of next summer. Remember Last year in August we had 5 days over 20 and look what happen to last summer. My main worry about next summer is the lack of thunderstorms or at least decent thunderstorms which seem to lack every third Summer. Thunderday records for Melbourne are these your records Dane?

Yes David, those are my thunderday records. Up until June 2001 I lived in Melbournes outer east FTG, Croydon and Kilsyth. Since then I have lived in Cranbourne. Thunderdays are recorded when i have personally heard or verified at least two rumbles of thunder on a given day. Some parts of Melbourne may have more or less thunderdays than I recorded. So far this year only January 3 days and April 1 day. So only 4 thunderdays this year average to the end of August is 10.

And yes, I predict that September is gonna be horrible and any sign of warmth will only begin in Oct. Reading some of the posts, people are saying that La Nina has a chance of developing this year, and that means a cold summer I think mad get lost La Nina.

A slow season is a great opportunity to research and learn more about the weather, storms, forecasting, whatever greases your wheels, etc...no such thing as a pathetic season IMO. Today for example is a cracker day to go experience gale force coastal or elevated wind dynamics. wink

As a footnote, a fantastic display of mammatus overhead at present too.

I can't stand drought Summers were we have no thunderstorms and dry bushfire weather, Hot weather is nice as long as we see plently of thunderstorms. I love hot weather when we get thunderstorms.

La Nina summers aren't always cold just usually wetter then normal.

yeah I love storms aswell but if we fail to get any then we better get extreme heat in return. A summer with no storms but drizzle and stratus will really drive me up the wall. Would a La Nina summer mean a humid summer, say like 20 degree nights and 25-30 degree days? zor would it be just below average temps with more cold fronts, W/SW flows?

just a curious though...with the lateness to winter this year(well in my opinion..lateness of consistant cool weather) are there any years comparable to this year? e.g cooler summer...dry and warmer autumn and dull winter? if there is a comparable year to this year's weather so far could that be a prediction for whats to happen? just a thought smile

just saw th updated central district forecast and yeeccchh its gonna be cold and miserable! And the temps, below average again for the whole week or so it seems mad They say chance storms/hail but when they say chance or possible storms, it's more like "in theory yes, but in reality however....no way in hell" Yeah I've got some mamatus aswell and some fractured strands of cloud silhouetted against the flowing lighter mid level deck, looks pretty cool wink Btw Hobart was a full 3c warmer than us today laugh

has anyone ever noticed how when Melbourne has a crappy winter, Sydney always has a sparkling one? Sydney for 2 years in a row (2004/05) has recorded record warm and sunny winters, which directly correlate with melbourne's run of crud weather. Sydney should continue with its 'usual' fare of low 20 winter days and clear skies while we freeze. Just look at the BoM forecasts. Same sort of effect occurs with summers (2004-05 was a standout example). Damn those consistant westerly winds! It's all just a bit of healthy SYD-MEL rivalry for ya wink

THUNDERHEAD. With all this complaining about Melbourne's Cold/ wind and rain perhaps you should move to Marble Bar WA. That sounds like the sort of climate you like. Winter is Winter - FACT OF LIFE and your selfish statements suggesting Summers in VIC should be of 35 - 40 + with no rainfall has no regard for struggling farmers and agricultural businesses. Perhaps when you get a little older and wiser you might re think your pro drought position.

As far as I am concerned we have had 6 - 7 years of below average rain. Perhaps the tide should turn and see 6 - 7 years of above average rain and below average temps!!!!!!

The official BoM website is saying weve had 2mm here in Wangaratta, but i reckon ive had a bit more than that, I might go and buy a rainguage soon!

Jane. I like all sorts of weather, as long as we dont have drought or dry heatwaves. The weather has to match the season. I.e Winter = Cold / Wet.
Spring / Autumn = Mild with good rain
Summer = Warm with hopefully good rain from Storms.

Cold this morning with rain which lasted till Midday, since then we have seen some sunny breaks with brief showers moving up the bay. these showers should clear of tommrow for a fine afternoon it will remain fine until Thursday where strong northely winds will redevelop ahead of late rain.

I like the same type of weather as you Fall Leaves. I hate drought and long spells without rain or sunshine, I don't really like winter that much except when we get good cold outbreaks with cold air showers and storms and low level snow. I like Spring and Autumn for the same reason as you. I enjoy Summer that are warm to hot with a good amount of rainfall and thunderstorms and plenty of sunshine too.

Perhaps when you get a little older and wiser you might re think your pro drought position.

As far as I am concerned we have had 6 - 7 years of below average rain. Perhaps the tide should turn and see 6 - 7 years of above average rain and below average temps!!!!!!
yeah Marble Bar has an awesome climate - extreme heat in summer and comfortable 25c winters. Only problem is not enough storms, and the fact that Marble Bar is little else than a couple of buildings. I never said there should be no rainfall in summer and I am NOT pro drought! All I said is heat and storms would be good for a change - not our usual fare of stratus and drizzle or so it seems. Fall leaves I respect your opinions and you should respect mine. Liking heat does not make me selfish - its simply my preference. yeah I hate long bouts of gloom, but I like frosts and snow. Summer I prefer either warm/hot humid and stormy/unsettled or very hot and sunny, preferably with afternoon storms.

Anyway to the point: cold drizzle rain today, right now a good shower

Yep TH a mild and sunny day. City 17.5c and here in Cranny it reached 16.4c. Up to around 18c in the city and 16c or 17c in most suburbs tomorrow but getting windy. Looks like some reasonable rain late Thursday into Friday. Rain wil fall in the ski fields as well due to warm air at upper levels. Models are hinting at much colder conditions early next week with fairly low level snowfalls.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 16/08/2005 18:00

looking at the models I think we are in for a very long spell of the infamous Melbourne winter gloom mad well beyond GFS+168 id say. It's all too familiar: 2 days of sun, followed by 2 weeks of freezing cold and drizzle.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 16/08/2005 18:26

30-50mm of rain likely through the Melbourne Catchments over the next week, with some cold outbreak conditions late weekend into the early week.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 16/08/2005 22:20

No, but certainly more springlike extremities, from cold and low level snowfalls one week to 3-4C above average, and what appears to be the first real pressure trough system with widespread rainfall and the potential for more widespread soaking rainfall and mild temps.

Wattle is out, cherry blossoms are out, the air is starting to fill with that distinctive smell of spring on the odd occasion, particularly when its warmer.

I am looking forward to the springtime.

GFS and Gasp have now downgraded the rain event. We have had some recent good rain in the past few weeks so 10-15mm would be good enough for the Melbourne metro area from the rain event. I really hope the catchments get 50mm+ and the farmers get plenty of rain to.

Was warm this morning temps around 16-17c in Melb but went downhill from around 8am now is dark cold.
Mildura very cold now, barely 11c but good news is they've got 8mm of rain up til now.

Here its been raining lightly all day and got colder with each hour, Melbourne barely topping 17c.

today was a direct copy of summer - one warm day followed by a warm night only to have a change roll in at 6am thus resulting in a week or more of very cold temps and drizzle. Here it was light rain drizzle all day. Oh well, at least rain fell where it's needed.

Melbourne's forecast very ordinary 13-14c days for the entire week.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 25/08/2005 21:16

today was nice although cloudy in the morning. Temp reached 18.5c in the city and was markedly cooler in coastal suburbs with Frankston on 13 and Avalon 14 and Moorabin on 14c.

2moro will probably be the same, 17c forecast but if the cloud doesn't hang around it will be closer to 20 (look at today almost 3c above the forecast and cloud was here till like 10.30-11am).

Very nice warm spell on the way: Sat 21c, Sun 23c, Mon 22c, Tue 22c. High-level cloud should increase on Monday with strenghening N/NW winds, which will produce a very mild night and strong northelies will keep the temp up despite mid-high cloud on Tues before a front pushes thru probably during the latter half of the day.

Temps in Mildura are expected to rise up to 26c on Monday which sounds right with high level cloud likely to prevent further heating. East Gippsland is to see temps reach 24c on Sun and Mon, maybe warmer on Tues depending on timing of change and the thickness of cloud. N/NW Winds likely to be fresh across the state esp central and western districts Sunday onwards. laugh

The airport warmed up very rapidly, at times 10c warmer than the city! Tomorrow looks exciting 23c and fresh N wind. and then it's a warm night expecting 15c for Melb but could be above 20 for a significant amount of the night if the wind keeps up esp in NW Vic and Wilson's Prom. Monday also nice 22c windy laugh then from Tuesday arvo its downhill all the way. But I won't go into the frigid and gloomy details of that.

Mildura will have 5 straight days of above 20's: Fri was 20c, today 23, Sun 25, Mon 26, Tue 24. For Melb it's only 18c for Tuesday. Anywhere east or North of Melb will see above 20 on Tuesday.

on another note - I have a school excursion on Wednesday. And ofcourse the weather will be horrid. Rain, SW'lys and cold. Just like on a previous outing to Frankston.

Tomorrow should be very interesting with wind, rain and the possibility of thunder! Predicted falls of 100mm in the NE will be very welcome for the catchments.

Mildura had days up to 28c with Monday night temps well in the 20's actual min 18.8 but yeah above 20 for 95% of the night up that way, is second highest min temp on record for Aug.

Melbourne has a lots of cloudy days where it rains lightly in the morning & often on & off all day. But you might only get 5 mm of rain.
Melbournians are therefore great lovers of umbrellas. Even huge corpoate umbellas can be seen. Black is the 'de rigour' colour for umbrellas. Occasionally tho some brave person brings out a brightly colored one.

Today was it was raining on and off, CBD recorded 6mm and Scorseby 11.4mm. Still looks like more showers to come tonight. It was wet, windy and very cold, Melbourne AWS recorded a top of about 13C. It DUMPED down with rain this morning around 9am, got about 7mm in 20min. Heaviest rain i've seen in a long time, gutters were overflowing!

Is it mid-winter or spring? Hrrrrmmm doesn't take an Einstein to work out this conundrum.

extreme cold rain drab misery. Now 2moro supposed to be fine very welcome news. I hope the clouds get lost by around 3am tomorrow morn as I've got astronomy on my mind and weather is not co-operating and 7 day forecast looks so wintry that it's not funny, temps will be around 16-17 with cloud and showers except Wed wow worse-than-winter weather. Temps miles below average since last Sat ay carumba Sept will be colder than July for sure not wrong. Good news however is this: the BoM's latest seasonal outlook suggests a 70% chance of ABOVE average temps for the Oct-Dec period.

Today was very cold, I woke to rain this morning which become heavy at around 9am with hail. Scattered showers and strong squally SW winds have occured since mid morning but things are easing now.

Fine tommrow with mostly sunny weather after possible early fog, more fronts during the week keeping tempertures mostly below avarage and on and off showers. Wednesday should be a nice day. We are due for a month of below avarage
tempertures though.

right now still having rain hopefully all will disappear by 3am so I can stargaze then we must get that solitary sunny but still cool 18c day. Then again is gonna be intensly cold and miserable then Wed will be fine, another one of those one hit wonders; before very cold and rainy conditions again. Way too many cold fronts, we need more strong highs at our latitude. I'm in school holidays and have plenty of oppurtunities to do some backyard astronomy. But the weather decides to be extremely miserable, with only 2 potential clear nights this upcoming week.

Re: COLA/IGES 10 day rainfall outlook. I think that scenario is based upon a low winding up over Northern VIC over the weekend, I stress this will most likely change by tomorrow.

Seeming that another week of mixed weather, looking at latest sat pic, there is the chance of a mid level thunderstorm over W and C areas overnight.

The overnight showers only brought 1.5 >2mm in the gauge, was hoping for a bit more I must say. Outlook untill late Thursday is looking like nice warm spring days smile .

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 21/09/2005 12:02

0mm in the gauge this morning and it felt just like norfolk described it, almost summerlike. Must have been the the warmer temps (jumped almotst 4C in Scoresby between 7am-8am), and the haze topped it off!
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 21/09/2005 12:07

Well, it's not overly warm, after all it's still only 18c and it's midday. If we have any hope of making 23c we to get a wiggle-on quick smart. 9am temp was just 11c and that's cold, also meaning that we can say good riddens to any high min that would be likely tonight. I'm at the point when I start to doubt our chances of hitting the forecast. Unless the northerly hurries up, maybe 20-21 seems more likely. Now why does ths situation remind me of warm days in Melbourne? Because they never reach the forecast! Yes the haze does remind me of summer but the temp doesn't at this point.
Posted by: HardRock

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 21/09/2005 15:39

Yeh it wasn't overaly warm this morning although there was a large temperature rise between 7am and 8am, maybe thats what i felt wink . 18.5C here at the moment in the shade, Scorseby AWS almost notching 20C. Melbourne CBD on 20.3C. Your maximum prediction was about right Thunder head wink .

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 21/09/2005 15:40

"today certainly wasn't as warm as expected, but still very nice nontheless. most centers fell short of forecast max temps. I could see it from the start. 9am temp was just 11c, but this surged to 16c at 10am, looking very hopeful, but from then onwards it was like a dehydrated marathon runner trying to struggle up a hill on a hot summer day. 3pm, max 21 so far, and is likely to be the official max as heating is at its limit. Haze seeems to have thinned away, hopefully wont have much cirrus/haze overnight as I have stars and planets to look at "

I have a maximum of 21.2 so far today......At one stage the haze got thick enough that the sun wasn't shining and so that is what has capped the temp....Sitting in the sun today was warm....I will call it warm even if you wont Thunder hahaha.

It's nearly 4pm now so I think I can safely put the min and max for today

Min: 5.2 Max 21.2

IMO, there is no kick in these northelies, temps are just not rising like they should. Certainly won't be 23c today, maybe 20-21 at the most. It isn't warm outside at all frown

Not a widespread fog overnight, more mist closer to the coast. But the cloud will break overnight as winds go offshore and a beautiful sunny day to follow.

Wednesday holds a windy warm and mostly sunny morning, thickening middle level cloud and periods of rain with some locally heavy falls towards evening with a strong cold front. Chance of a thunderstorm. 24-25C throughout. Metro area may see 15-25mm.

The BOM have put in there forecast for Monday so WZ is getting it from there.

Today has been partly cloudy cool to mild with just a few brief showers in parts of Southern and Mountain areas. Should be a fine and mostly sunny few days ahead for Northern Victoria, but a little cooler with some cloud in Southern Victoria. Could see some warmish temps next week ahead of a system on Thursday.

Posted by: Matt Pearce

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 29/09/2005 15:55

Yeah the previous forecast was done by TWC whereas it has now been overwritten by the BoM. In hindsight, 31 may well have been a little high for Monday in Mildura. However, I think 23 is definitely a bit on the cool side. I think you'll find the temp will end up around the 25-27C mark, getting quite a bit warmer on Tuesday.
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 29/09/2005 16:21

yeah I was surprised by the 23c aswell, definately an underestimation at this stage, considering that the BoM are predicting weak fronts on Fri and Sat for southern Vic only, not affecting the north which will permit heat build up in the North. GFS 850T's are progged at around 16c for Mildura on monday, even warmer Tues.

Normally I don't trust the weather channel on their 7 day forecasts, and their 7 day forecast on Foxtel for Mildura say temps upto 34c by next Wed.

a comment on weather channel? it forcasted melb for 27 by end of next week how in/accurate is that? wink

also will melb miss out on the warming trend for the east/southeast?

and also any long range forecast for oct10-12? will be camping with the school kids down at Anglesea.

Thanks all

Tony

Melbourne does have a habit of missing out on SE warming trends, a classic example being Feb 2004. BoM say weak fronts clipping Melbourne Friday, saturday, monday keeping our temps low 20's until atleast tuesday while the NW of the state remains mid 20's. It's too early to tell what will become of this warm spell yet, perhaps in a couple of days we'll get a better idea.

I found this comparison between Renmark and Mildura quite interesting. Now these two are in similar settings 120km apart. Way different temps, Mildura I think is being way underestimated here...or Renmark overestimated...

Mildura
Saturday
Fine. A mostly sunny day with light to moderate north to northwest wind.
Max 25
Precis: Fine.

Sunday Fine. Min 10 Max 25
Monday Fine. Min 6 Max 24
Tuesday Fine. Min 8 Max 28

FORECAST FOR RENMARK
Saturday : Fine and sunny. Warm with light to moderate northwest winds.
Max 26

HEADLINE : Fine. Sunny.

Following three days for Renmark
Sunday : Min 8 Max 26 Fine. Sunny.
Monday : Min 9 Max 27 Fine. Mostly sunny.
Tuesday : Min 11 Max 33 Fine. Sunny.

Wilson's Prom already on 18.5c at 7am eek

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 01/10/2005 09:46

Melbourne still relatively cool at 16c compared to 17's and 18's across most other suburbs. cloud seems to be thinning and wind increasing. Should get more of a rise in temps now. Infact atm, Melbourne is the coldest place in Melbourne and Avalon ofcourse the warmest.

next Wednesday looks pretty explosive if you ask me, especially over Northern Vic. Mildura and N Vic again might live up to their stormy reputation! GFS has LI down to -3, even -4 in some pockets, and CAPE up to 800. Temps look to be well in the 20's with DP's of around 12-16. Combine this with an expected pre-frontal trough and cold front with faily steep temp gradient it's looking pretty snazzy! Looking forward to it smile This is a major upgrade from yesterday's model run, hope it does not happen to downgrade.

now I must do a Macbeth essay for school, frown I had all holidays but couldn't be stuffed as I was too busy watching Jerry Springer and doing nothing laugh

September was slightly warmer and drier than normal in Cranbourne. Rain fell on 21 days during the month but despite this we finished below average with 77mm's average 91mm's. Daytime temperatures were a litle above average with the average Max 17.3c (norm 16.5c)We had 3 thunderdays during September which is pretty good. Melbourne City had 41mm's of rain in September average 58mm's.

City has officialy cracked 25c laugh Week ahead looks good, upto 26c on Tuesday in Melb, and in the 30's around Mildura. Tuesday night looks to be a warm one, and Wednesday seems interesting for storms. Humidity has gotten very low in the NW, Mildura recording DP's of -10 eek
Posted by: Matt Pearce

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 01/10/2005 16:31

Yeah I agree Tuesday night is looking really warm in Melbourne...probably end up with a min around 15C or thereabouts. Then depending on how much cloud comes in ahead of the front, temps up around the 26C mark again look likely on Wednesday. Then by Friday you'll have forgotten all about it, with potential for more wintery showers complete with small hail and the works laugh

Let it rain wed/thurs/fri....as long as the Monday/Tuesday/Wednesday after that is dry and sunny. Need good camping weather.

What a great day....morning high cloud seperated to a warm and sunny day with whispy high cloud about and a moderate breeze.

min:11.6 Max:24.2

After the early almost non movement in the city, it cracked 25 there. Seems interesting that it does that.

Just got back from a week at Lakes Entrance, weather was fantastic, got only a tiny bit of rain Wednesday night but thats all. Someone 'print screened' the radar and it looked amazing, got about 16mm here apparently over wed/thur and lots of lightning...or so i'm told.

Was annoyingly uncomfortable driving back today, sun was hot and so was the air, used the air conditioner for first time in a long while!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 02/10/2005 13:11

lovely today, just lovely smile 24c so far, and being 1pm, 25 is not out of the question. Some shallow cu forming in response to ground heating. Was expecting a little bit of cloud this morning but was pleased to have a clear blue sky and as such, the forecast 21c was upgraded to 23c and we overshot that aswell much like yesterday smile

Mildura had 25c forecast, but they are now on 26, I reckon 28 could be the go there.

seabreeze thru Melbourne temp now 21c.

What is the big freaking idea? Good-effing-bye 26c tomorrow, another downgrade to 23c while Sydeny gets 30c for like 3 days in a row and a 21c at night I believe mad mad today the wind was cold despite 20c. Mildrua can say bye bye to that 31c aswell. Damn clumsy high prolly migrated north favouring again the oven they call Eastern NSW. Just a day ago, all models pointed to a hot day 2moro and Wed, with a promising setup for storms. Now, not only temps been downgraded, but we can now get just rain periods instead of storms. Let that be a lesson to ya - only believe the forecasts 1 day out at the most. Also barf at the weather from Thursday till Sunday and beyond. Showers 17, 18c days. :amd: frown

On a more positive note, it has been sunny today and will be 2moro aswell, which is nice smile

sunny today....it actually felt warm up in sunbury without a breeze up there. when I got home, felt much cooler, breeze was blowing quite strongly, I wonder if it was much warmer up there, but who knows, I dont think any weather station is near there apart from the airport which isnt that accurate for sunbury.

anyways here in Caroline Springs

Indeed!! It didnt feel anything like low twenties here in the inner south suburbs. Have you noticed how Melbourne CBD is always at least 2 3 c more than say Mentione. The wind had a real chill factor here. They have the aircons running flat out if they think the day will edge over 18c. LOL
Also I was interested to read that we had 20 rainy days in september but its didnt get anywhere near the long term average. Melbourne just seems to drizzle a few drops here and there for ages most days. What we need is for it to bucket down once a fortnight instead. I am putting in an ORDER!!!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 03/10/2005 20:57

TH you need to think more positive. We have had 3 lovely warm mostly sunny days in a row with another one on the way tommrow. I'm sure we will see another warm spell soon after the cooler weather later this week. smile

Nice day again today although cooler then the last two. Change come through this morning with no rain ended up mostly sunny with strong WSW winds.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 03/10/2005 21:27

I had no idea when the change came thru, skies were definately clearer than expected I think but I was actually cold in a jumper because of the wind despite it being 20c. Even in the morning at 17c, I was almost shivering when I walked outside in a shirt. Pretty odd seeing as I find such mornings comfortable.

Wilson's Prom is an enigma. It has recorded temps above 20 for the better part of the early morning darkness, infact topping 21 or 22c at around 4.30am. Interesting how that happens there.

Yeah norfolk I agree with disppointment at no 26c 2moro, but being Melbourne you never know wink Yeah 23 is ok for this time of year, but just over the weekend was brilliant 25c, and I remember in Sept 2002 when Mildura hit 37c and in Oct 2004 Mildura hit 40c!

David yeah I am grateful for the nice days we are having but does it have to be followed by a week of showers cloud 17c temps?

At least its nicer outside than in Melbourne offices with the aircons runnin on high.
Yes non-Melbournites even at 18c our aircons run on high.

I see a wind chill forecasted today.

The only thing is that outside you have to chase your hat on windy Melbourne days. LOL

i see still predicting mild and unsettled so therefore no cold front coming our way??
I know ordinary folk have sense not to use aircons in this weather but
(1) we went to a restaruant yesterday & the icy blast of the air con was coming down on all patrons
(2) we went in by tram (those new white ones with NO windows) & the air con was running so hard we found a spot as far as we could from a ac vent - on the sunny side - to TRY TO escape.

sure has jane, had BBQ yesterday, took the kids down to albert park today, kids have been loving it and we are already into the sunshine. my lovely brown tan from 22years in the tropics is slowly fading away and i am starting to look like a mexican now!
anyway, 22C here at the moment. didnt really get any fog, more so low cloud this morning. CU did build up quickly after the low cloud cleared but another spotless day out there. justa hint of build up on the ranges.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 17/10/2005 20:31

hey all, spring has well and truly arrived, now. It's been a slow buildup to spring so maybe we will have a slow build up to summer. Possibly nothing too extreme?

anyway, after the low cloud lifted early this morning, was sunny all day. Again in sunbury, it felt quite warm.

could see some build up to the north and north east, wonder how intense any rain/storms were today if any.

min:9.6 max:21.6

looking very interesting for the rest of the week, mild and stormy rather than warm and stormy though!

WOW! How great is today? It's already 24.8C (and no, Natasha, I'm not about to turn on the air con wink ), and a little high cloud moving in now.

I'm getting excited at the prospects of thunderstorms (would make a lovely B'day pressie!), and Husband is home for the rest of the week so I will most likely get out and dust the cobwebs off my camera. It's seen more snow than storms....... :rolleyes:

Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 19/10/2005 18:33

another goodo mild day, was actually dry rather than humid because the breeze felt "light" and cool, rather than the "heaviness" of humidity. BoM obs have low humidities in Melb, only around 25-35% throughout the day. In the morning was already at 18c at 7am, but felt like 15c, just because of dry air. A similar thing hapened in early Sept, was 18c at 7am aswell but felt like 20 because it was humid. Max temp today 23.4c was actually overcast for most of the day so this is quite a warm airmass smile

humidity becoming more apparent now.

It was a strange humidity today - strange for the fairly mild temperature.

Now I know people are gonna say that this isnt REAL humid weather like the top end. But anything that is humid like we have been getting makes me sick literally. Thats why i wasnt online yesterday smile I get migranes, and fall ill in weather like this. Probably why ive never been up north!!!

anyway overcast again today with some nice heavy showers this afternoon. Looks like the desert(i.e western subs of Melbourne) has fared well!!

Also nice to see Melbournes rainfall total rising up to 28.2mm for the month. With only 10 days left of the month we're not even half way their for the average of 67.4mm and considering this is our wettest month hopefully the next week can add to total but I dont think we'll get there in the end.

we didnt get much rain down here in SE Inner Melbourne - as usual lately!
but its been light drizzle as usual lately - which produces about 0.1mm per day
just enough to get your fur wet but not even sink into the garden. it just hits the concrete & evaporates.
October 05 has had 28mm compared to the average 67mm for octobers - Not good enough!!

2nd today was windy, warm cloudy with some sun this afternoon, making it feel very sticky. YUK. If we had had any rain, would have been almost steamy!!

Wind is easing a bit at the moment though. and it is still warm outside, could be a pretty balmy night tonight, like those lazy days of summer!! And with this kind of weather, we might have a warm, humid summer this year(YAY Sydney weather!!!)(hear the sarcasm in my voice?? LOL)

I'm keeping an eye on Melbournes total, it needs 30mm to get to it's average October total of 67mm. You never know, if the 30th dumps down the 20-30mm GFS is progging then we might get there!

Today was very pleasant everwhere except one particurlar intersection. Corner of Chapel & commercial road Prahran. Its always several degrees cooler there (no kidding) & always windy. There arent any super tall buildings there to create a wind tunnel (like in the CBD) so any ideas why this intersection is always revolting???

fine partly cloudy for tuesday? what happened to mostly sunny??? maybe wont reach 28 if its cloudy

windy and 32 for wednesday? ewwww hot northerlies???

^^ewwwww hot northelies...Norfolk I thought you liked heat!

I reckon the addition of cloud/fog/drizzle to the forecasts are a result of more humid air than originally thought. BoM now mentions humid conditions for Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. The forecast even mentions "afternoon and evening showers" in the central district on these days.

Atm, I think the humid air is already here, temp/DP actually rising in Melbourne right now. Looked real misty at sunset.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 31/10/2005 00:33

yeah u have been.

this spring the Max been observed in each Capital city so far is

Darwin: 36.6C
Brisbane: 36.3C
Sydney (CBD): 33.8C
Sydney (Western): 33.5C
Canberra: 25.8C
Melbourne: 25.1C
Hobart: 23.3C
Adelaide: 29.9C
Perth: 27.6C

so this spring so far Melbourne Max is the 2nd lowest out of all the Capital Cities

I always thought Melbourne had a similar climate to Sydney

Hey all,

well what a perfect day!!

spent the day at Williamstown for work, all I can say is.....wish I could do that more often on days like today. And seeing I wont be working next year frown hopefully someone could give me a job there hehehe

after that morning cloud cleared warmed up very nicely, but interesting to see the different temps around the subs, from 26.8 in the city and a 'cool' 23.1 at Laverton.

min: 13.9 max:24.2

my averages were min:10.1 max:21.1

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 31/10/2005 20:51

this confirms what we already knew, an outtake from today media release from Vic BOM -
Melbourne's maximum and minimum temperatures were both around a degree and a half above average. (Max. 21.2 deg., Normal 19.6 deg., Min. 11.9 deg. Normal 10.3 deg.). Meanwhile rainfall was well below average with just 39mm, compared to an average of 65mm. Melbourne's maximum temperature exceeded 20 deg. for 17 consecutive days, from the 15th to the 31st October. This beats the previous record of 11 days set in 1951.

Driving back from lunch at Lang Warren I was treated to a fantastic view of CU's developing! It was amazing, there was such a variety of them, big and small and all at different levals. Didn't win on any horses though!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 01/11/2005 17:49

after a crappy morning temps shot up to 30.7c and was humid. smile Some remarkable temp/DPs, with some places around Warnambool having 27/21s, Geelong 26/20 and places around east gippsland at 28/20.

seeing as the 9am-9am rule will screw up warm mins in Melbourne tonight, I've decided to create my own weather obs for melb, with mins 6pm-9am. sort of hypocritical of the bom to say "19c" tonight when they'll make the 17c at 9am the "official" min. why don't they say 17c min tonight then? or use a normal 6pm-9am rule.

what a great way to start november...

after morning low cloud, it cleared to a sunny and warm day. (I am NOT calling it hot!!!) The clouds that were developing around, I thought we might have seen some storms around, but maybe wasnt humid enough. I was worried that the temps were not gonna reach 30 after that morning cloud, but as we know, it did in the city, the airport, scoresby, viewbank and a 32 at essendon, (the hottest in the state?)

min:15.2 max:30.7

going for a warm spell
tomorrow 32..Thurs 27...Fri 23....Sat 30
and they saying a rain event for thursday, will it have more 'punch' than what was supposed to fall with the last change?

if it wasnt for that extreme rain even in feb, we would have a very rain deficit this year

rain for october Essendon 48.0mm
A/port 67.6mm
City 41.8mm
Laverton 46.0mm
Scoresby 54.4mm
Viewbank 79.8mm

the city was drier this month than the suburbs...maybe it's trying to take over the title of 'the desert of melbourne'!!!

NOT HUMID ENOUGH!!!???? eek Dp's around 16-21 everywhere across the state, including Melbourne. can't remember it EVER being this humid. Warnambool and Mortlake had 27/21, Orbost 28/20, Mildura 30/16, melbourne 30/17 (29/19 at one stage) to note a few good temp DP combos. NE Vic had them in the high teens, NW Vic same but Gippsland and SW Vic were impressive with DP's above 20. There were no storms because there was no trigger (i.e. a trough). yeah that morning cloud was crap and I seriously doubted any hope of hitting 30c today after such a sluggish rise in temps in the morning, but then it got going and luckily we got a nice warm tropical day. even more humid 2moro and this time a good chance of some action!

Btw, interesting to note the temps across Metro Melbourne atm, Avalon only 18/16, Geelong 17/16 but melbourne 26/18, Moorabbin 23/17 and Scoresby 24/19. Why is Avalon and Geelong so much cooler, seabreeze perhaps?

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 01/11/2005 22:32

thunder, i wasnt suggesting that it wasnt humid was just wondering why the storms didnt develop. I wouldnt say i am an expert, so therefore was just wondering why the storms were non existant in the melb area...

What a GREAT morning! About 27c overnight looking at the BoM obs, I think i heard on the radio that is was a record or something? Strange enough I had a great sleep!! Rain and distance thunder woke me up at 6pm-ish then on and off rain and distance rumbles, then at about 6.50, a huge 'crack, bang', then rain!! A bit of mini 'flash flooding' in the driveway but it came down hard! Was great! laugh . Also caught a glimpse of lightneing in a cell to the north! I'm sure we all experienced something exiting today laugh

Rainfall: 11.5mm to 8.30am! Must say when the rain cleared up, so did the wet ground! Felt like a very humid day aswell!
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 03/11/2005 21:30

a sensational morning! woke up to lightning and thunder about 5am, really huge blinding flashes and loud deep booming thunder - was almost surreal. There is always something special about these warm stormy mornings. Was mainly CC's and crawlers here. Was warm and full on humid and that just completes the perfect summer morning laugh

The temp stayed above 28c until 4am, when the thunderstorms moved in dropping it to 22c with the 3mm of rain that fell. That impressive because even with 3mm of rain, the temp didn't go below 22c. That's how humid the airmass was.
Official min is 22.1c. Avalon recorded 24.7c as it's min, might be close to a record for that area.

today's max was 27.2c with high humidity but wind made it feel less muggy as far as temp and RH are concerned. But you could smell the moisture.

right now though, much drier, infact atm, some DP's around Melbourne are around 1c! 2moro sunny and 21c so an ok day prolly dry as a bone though going by current DP readings.

perfect spring day....sunny, warm, not too hot, with a nice breeze....a late top in the city of 25.1. Warmer tomorrow but then a few 'cooler' day later in the week.

does this warm start to November mean much cooler days ahead? Hope not.... and summer still hasnt arrived yet. Hope i can impress the rellies( a new lot lol) who have decided to come visit melb in january with warm summer weather. Although these ones are from Switzerland not Italy so maybe they are used to cool summers smile

I use to think I was one of the most negative thinkers on this forum until you joined. You don't seem to enjoy warm sunny days because all you are thinking about is that colder weather or rain later in the outlook. We have been lucky this Spring with above avarage tempertures but we can't have those warm tempertures all the time.

Please don't take offense to this, I just think you need to look on the positive side.

Lovely day today, looking foward to tommrow's weather. Also looks like there will be good rains on the way around Monday-Tuesday.

I dont understand TH. He worries about it being cold and crappy, yet on the warm days he sits on his PC or laptop observing every temp rise and complaining it is not good enough by writing it on this forum. I bet he hasn't even been outside today to enjoy the weather. Who cares if it is going to rain next week. We need it. You will be at school indoors anyway. If not at school you will be in your house on your PC all day.

9am temp is 20.5 sop any potential 20c tonite is saved.

I'm making my own weather obs data for Melbourne, I just wanna know if this description regarding measurements of temp, wind etc. makes sense to people:

Daily Obs Notes:
Overnight 6pm-9am minimum temps are measured from 6pm the previous day to 9am on the current day and are shown in the first column. They are only shown if the lowest temp between 6pm previous day to 9am current day is higher then the lowest temp at any point between 9am-6pm previous day. If not shown, refer to the 9am-9am min. The 9am-9am min temps are the lowest temps from 9am the previous day to 9am current day. Max temps are measured from 9am to midnight. Rainfall is in mm. Sunshine is in hours on the day. Wind is direction and speed in km/h. Temp/DP is the temp and dewpoint. RH% is relative humidity expressed as a percentage. Cld is cloud cover

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 06/11/2005 16:11

one pattern I noticed, is when melbourne's weather is good, perths is crap, and vice versa. So when Perth is in the midst of some very welcome heat, Melbourne gets ravaged by unwelcome cold fronts, sour weterly's and crappy cold. We'll be getting ugly cold sour weterly weather during the later half of this week. That should mean Perth will be warm.

so far, we top scored at 30.3c today. Dps are low now only low teens.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 06/11/2005 18:11

today was a nice day, warm 30c and they say 19c for tonight, which is nice and if it remains above 20c, it'll be valid seeing as the 9am temp was 20.5c.

next warm spell looks to be happening next Sunday onwards, with a high in the tasman and a low moving in from WA so probably humid again.

The standouts here are 1902 (28.9) and 1982 (28.4) for the first week. In 1902 it reached 30 on 5 of the first 6 days of the month. 2005 should come in somewhere in the mid 27s.

warm to hot weather ahead of strong gusty fronts with very little rainfall. and so early in the season.
not a good sign for an upcoming summer is it?
already the grasses are drying out in the south with a substantial lack of rainfall over the past few months in most southern areas. also the last several fronts have had serious wind warnings.
certainly hope this isnt going to be the trend for hot and dry summer ahead.
at least northern parts of the state are going to stay green for a while!!! smile

Mick...I never thought of that (being a city dweller and such) but you are correct....northern vic has had some good rainfall, while southern vic,(and I think in particular, sounthern central victoria) has missed out.
Also, with more warmer days than cooler of late, while this may be good for beach lovers, people living in more leafy, country or outer suburban areas will need to be vigilant i say.

And if we have more days like today, where a hotter day arrives with gusty winds, could be dangerous this summer.

Well that's my say anyway.

and the lite drizel instead of rain is also a worry. I know some areas have had more rain but down here in Prahran we are getting 0.1mm of rain on a rainy day. We actually got 11m the other day which is a record for months. Isnt that type of lite drizel the mark of drought??

Only 0.5mm here to 8.30am this morning. Brings monthly total to 26.5mm, over 4 'rain days'. Since 4pm there was 4mm in the gauge, and i'm hoping for 5 - 10mm by 9am tommorow laugh .

Saying that, it is currently snowing at Mt Buller laugh

Hahah isn't it great laugh .

18mm from yesterdays fantastic episodes. My total is at 44.5mm, over just 5 'rain days'. This time last month we were on 17mm and the highest amount recorded was 12mm. This month, yes we're only 1/3rd of the way through, I have 3 major totals of 11.5mm, 14.5mm, and 18mm. Its good we're getting RAIN here and nice totals coming, gut feeling tells me its going to be a wetter month then October laugh

The rain has been great, 44mm so far this month. 16mm from this last system with more rain early next week. This rain has really been needed with the recent warm spell drying things up which has been increasing bushfire risks.

I am sure laverton, the Airport and Essendon havent had that much rain.

finally a warmer morning! after 7 days 10c mins and some equally cold days, it was nice to wake up to cicada's and 20c temp. today overcast 25c, I reallly think cloud moved in atleast 5 hours earleir than expected as the sky was already covered at 6am! But 25c is a fair effort when it's 100% overcast with virga/showers around the joint.

tomorrow we can expect rubbish cold SW 19c ugh frown then will remain cold until next Wednesday (very cold on Tuesday, horrible SW again, HIGHS DO NOT BELONG IN THE BIGHT, THE BELONG IN THE TASMAN!!! GFS has a beautiful scenario for late next week, with a HUGE northerly fetch from nth Queensland that will last possibly for 3-4 days, but atm too early to get over excited about but let's hope it remains that way. One thing that's of concern is the Synoptic maps. they show a very ordinary pattern where the high performs it's dreaded elongation resulting in E'ly fine weather, but temps only in the low 20's, barely mid 20's at best.
so, it's 4 days of COLD with downgraded temps (as usual) to endure from 2moro onwards, then it could be getting swwwwweeeeeeeetttt. here's to endless 30c and 40c days this summer :cheers:

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 19/11/2005 07:21

today looks like a drag, certainly nothing amazing about it.

the 21c on Tuesday is very cold for several reasons. Firstly the temp itself is cold, add to that the cloud and showers that's expected and the windchill of the dreaded south westerly. If the 21c was in fine sunny conditions, I'd class it as cool/mild. The only day until next Wed or Thurs that'll won't require a jumper is Monday.

After having pretty crappy weather with temps 18-22c and min temps always at 10c for the last week or so, I can't wait for late next week.

Cold to warm days all week.

16c in Canada IS warm at this time of year relative to their average temps that are more negative than positive! Like our 21c is cold at this time of year. It's all relative to the time of year.
Posted by: Papy_Zapy

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 19/11/2005 11:47

We will have to agree to disagree. Wind Chill is not high at this time of year. As soon as the sun pops out of the clouds at even 18C it feels like it burns your skin. A 20 deg day in Jan feels alot warmer than 20 deg in May! BOM have a new apparant temp system, works on that principal.

16C? Try 23C! That's how warm I remember it got in Edmonton in November several years ago. (normal daily max for that month is 0C)

However, it is forecast to go up to 14C this Saturday. cool

Yes it got to 20c but a colde 20c - i was wearing a warm jumper outside. Usually at 20c I am in a lite top
and er
We have been forecasted rain since Sunday but I have not seen more than a few drops.
Must say the monthly fall is almost up to average this month tho which is good. But I wonder how many rainy days it took to get that!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 28/11/2005 19:28

next cool change unlikely to be as cold as the curent cold spell, after the 31c on thirsday we'll have 25c friday, 22c Sat then back to mid-high 20's after the weekend. That's a relief. Just waled my dof in gale force southerlies, which strangely didn't feel as cold as I had envisioned before stepping out, but were annoyingly strong.

What is it with you guys. You must be over 60 or something. I feel hot!
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 29/11/2005 11:05

today is turning out to be somewhat milder than I expected, low overcast cloud and drizzle but 23c so it's not bad smile

Latest forecast for Melbourne has suddenly gotten much more colourful! I think it's going ot be somewhat more humid than originally anticipated, hence the addition of cloud/fog/showers to Wed and Thursday.

Wednesday
Early fog low cloud patches. Shower or two developing
min 14 max 27

Thursday
late thundery showers
min 16 max 31

Friday
rain
min 18 max 25

Feeling hot in cool - mild weather can be caused by several things
(1) Larger sized ppl feel hot as their bodies have a lot of insulation - The two larger ppl in our office are hot all the time whereas the everage sized people feel cool even cold in the same conditions
(2) ppl who continually have aircons running in their house office & frequent air con environs seem to lower their ability to tolerate warmer weather. This is why many people in Melbourne are flapping when the temp gets to 25c
whereas say 20 years ago; 25c was regarded as pleasant

Alternatively its true that people with a low muscle mass may feel the cold more than people with a higher muscle mass
but the fit ppl dont feel hot all the time either. Their body clock adjusts better.

Natasha.

Firstly, I am 5'9 and 70 kg - Slim toned. I am not fat nor skinny. I am fit! Therefore that theory goes out the window.

Secondly, I have no air con at home. I work in an office where I can open my window. The aircon is only on when it is hot.

I feel cold in Winter when daylight hours are minimal and it only reaches 12 - 14 deg for an hour or so. I dont feel cold during this time of year where daylight hours are long. UV Index is high, and the sun burns when it is out. P.S I am of Light Olive completion! The wind has felt nothing less than mild for a few weeks now. I say to all those that feel cold living in Melbourne.... your winging and complaining. You are used to melbourne winters therefore this should feel pleasant unless you have been living in a warmer climate for the last year.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 29/11/2005 16:29

Papy I envy you working in a place where you can open your windows. We work in a sealed office space yuck.
I say to ppl who are cold put on more clothes! LOL. They cant be expected to be warm in a skimpy top bare middle & low rider pants when its 18c & the cold air from the aircon is coming down on them. heheheh
Leg warmers are a beautiful thing LOL

Yeah. I have a slide door as a window in my office. I was one of the lucky ones that scored a good office. I almost always have it open. I am on the ground floor. (Thats the only floor) LOL! Warm one today despite the strong SE Winds. Muggy also!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 29/11/2005 18:06

OK I think i better say something about this 'cold' discussion....

I said it was cold as in Sunbury where I work the wind usually blows from the hill behind work (although it is called MT Holden it isnt a mountain!) Sunbury always feel cool in the morning in my mind so when I said it was cold it was a cold morning in my mind and up in sunbury. And when it is mild in the city, the winds can be quite chilly up in the foothills of sunbury.

And yes I am quite thin so those breezes do go right through me smile

anyways today was nice and mild, warmer than I was expecting. Was quite cloudy all day in Sunbury and sunny when I got home closer to town smile
that breeze was blowing quite strongly today but not as strong as last night.

My max was 34.4C at 5pm, still a very warm (for Melb standards) 27C outside. I see a very tossy turny night on the cards....Just need a thunderstorm or three!

Already a prospective buyer! What a great business enterprise this could be!

The new summer range will arrive tomorrow just in time for crappy weather. Don't delay, order yours now. It's Melbourne's hot new summer fashion statement.

"cold, rain and sour weterly's guaranteed, you'll be glad you got a Thunderhead brand fur coat, direct from Alaska, tailor-made for crappy climates!"

and remember, if it's not a Thunderhead (c) brand Alaskan fur coat, you're gonna freeze to death.

happy christmas shopping folks!

God you people moan sometimes about the temps. Try looking on the positive side of things!

Cold Sour Westerly's frown = Refreshing sea breeze smile
Freezing and drizzel frown = Cosey inside smile
Windy, wet, cold AND freezing with drizzel = Refreshinly Cosey smile .

wink

Total was great, 16.5mm so far and what a start to the November totals! It was COLD and wet, was just like winter laugh . Brings back memory's! Looking good tommorow morning, the moisture wrapping around the low, will feed Melbourne some nice showers and 'intensifying rain' thorughout tommorow. Should be a nice day!!

Keep an eye on things tomorrow with hints that a fairly moderate rainband could form around Central areas as thunderstorms climax through the region tomorrow afternoon. Could see similar falls to Friday through the area. I would love 20mm but 10mm looks reasonable still.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 05/12/2005 18:16

max has just occured now, 28.1c at 6.07pm. late maximum, same story in Mildura, passing 32c at 6pm. slow warm up, late maximum. Going outside it is indeed as warm now as it's been all day smile

just had a look at Adelaide's forecast, and it says temps rising to the 'upper 30's' on Monday. This could also lead to potential mid-high 30's temps for melbourne, and possibly the first 40c for Mildura smile let's hope it happens.

Yeah clud streaming in from the Nw in Sa atm with the odd area of rain should be a farily thick cloud band tomorrow unless it diers overnight which i dopubt it moist be the key but with it likning to front it anit looking to bad for good 5mm in most places and as u said 10mm in spots intresting to see if we get more i dont thnk so but will see this time tomorrow looking like a complex change that for sure according to fire waether forcast hopefully very late cahnge and we get to around 32c smile

here in CS a very late max at about 6pm but i am sure a few places did that

I seemed to have missed all this 'heavy' rainfall, i got maybe 30sec of really heavy stuff but its nothing I havn't seen within the last few months. Still it was heavy at some points, and it just kept going on and on, from about 2.30pm. Then there were rumbles at around 9pm - 10pm, and then apparently reading the other thread there was lots of action a few hours later but i fell asleep frown . I'm very happy though with the 25.1mm from yesterday's episode!

Well it didnt feel very warm on Malvern Road today. It felt cool for 25c. The sun didnt seem to have its usual bite. We did have fairly clear skies too. Hmmmm (???)
Wasnt Tuesday a wild day guys. That heavy cloud cover all day then that amazing storm. We loved the storm.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 08/12/2005 09:19

Cool and partly cloudy this morning. There is the slight chance of a shower today but it should be mostly fine. Warming up tomorrow ahead of a weak front Saturday, then becoming warm to hot early next week ahead of a cool change on Monday with some showers and possible thunderstorms.

nice sunny day with clouds about. Dry day but after the rainfall that has fallen so far this month this is good growing weather (says the non-farmer!)

nice cool seabreeze making it the perfect summer's day.

today is especially cool, only 20c at 12pm. Mildura going for 31c but only 22c atm there. I'm assuming a late maximum in many places today.

^Renmark has 39c forecast on Sunday so the 40c could be a real possibility. And expect the BoM to upgrade sunday night's min wink Mildura should cook on Sunday night IMO
Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 10/12/2005 05:35

a fine day yesterday, sun was exceptionally strong, making the 23c max feel like 27 or something!

Forecasts for the next few days are jumping around and one cannot really be sure what really will happen. For melbourne, Monday was upgraded from 29c to 33c, with a small increase of min temp aswell, which ofcourse is logical seeing as the highest 850hPa temps will move over Victoria sunday night into monday morning.

It has been a nice afternoon with clear skies and light winds with tempertures in the low 20's.

Warm tomorrow with plently of sunshine, then hot and windy on Monday ahead of a cool change with some rain and possible thunderstorms. after that it should be mostly fine and mild to warm for a few days before a cool change later in the week with colder air and a few showers likely.

bloody freezinf last night, only 11c :shiver: but far milder up in the NW, Mildura recording a much more pleasant 18c this morning. Now this airmass is quite hot, infact Adelaide didn't drop below 22c all night which I think was 6 over the forecast and at 9am they are at 28c. Should give some nice high temps later on smile

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 12/12/2005 08:55

well they say its gonna be a MAX of 35c here today & its 24c already in the CBD. All the Refrigerated A/C's will b pumpin out a huuuuggggggeeee amount of hot air from the builidngs cars & public transport too.
I notced that Mentone is usually about 4c less than the CBD. So we are halfway between the two in Prahran.

Calm, bright and sunny here, gem of a morning. Baro has dropped from 1017 to 1009 in last 12h. Will be hoping to maintain a clear slot ahead of the looming cloudband for as long as possible today.

For my two-bobs, the cloud band is way too large to produce much thunder with the change. But nice to see MLAPS giving us the chance of 10mm or so around dawn tomorrow.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 12/12/2005 10:48

I can;t see Mildura getting anywhere near the 37c today, infact after topping out at near 30c at around 9am, their temp has fallen to 28c as of present.

However I CAN see us getting our 35c!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 12/12/2005 14:50

last night was surprisingly cold. Woke up at 2.30am to do some stargazing, checked the temp and was just 17c. Where was the mild 20c we were promised? The wind appeared to be from the south east and it was cold aswell, quite odd considering that the models were showing a decent Northely flow and that temps in the north were very warm at night, e.g. mid-high 20's in Mildura and Further north in outback NSW.

today started off dry and hot but became more humid by the late afternoon. quite a rapid warming up this morning, temps upto 28c by 9am but min was only 17, even down to 12 in some suburbs, maybe the northely kicked in later than expected.

would've been humid as hell in Mildura today, with moisture, showers and cloud this morning giving way to 35c sunshine must've been sweaty up that way today. ALso they had a min of 25c.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 13/12/2005 16:38

Posted by: Thunder head

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 13/12/2005 20:01

Just to agitate the perth guys even more (sorry LOL :p ) we are in line what looks like a fairly substantial hot spell with a large area of high 850T's and northely winds heading our way from around next Tuesday onwards, Adelaide's forecast stating temps lo-mid 30's, for mid next week, and using that as a guide, I say we are set to recieve low 30's, maybe mid 30's and Mildura prolly low to high 30's from Tues onward.

Perth on the other hand, while getting temps around 30c for the weekend are set to recieve low 20's again next week. something really screwy going on there....

one more thing, Melbourne's average max temp so far for Dec is 26.2c, while for Adelaide it's 25.2c! We're warmer than Adelaide aswell but incidentally our sunshine so far is lower than EVERY other capital city's sunshines, and that includes Hobart! wink

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 13/12/2005 22:45

Hi Natasha

I'm tipping low 20's for Perth towards the end of next week. GFS 168 (tuesday), as far as the outlook goes at this stage, shows a hardcore SW and the 7 day forecast has a cooling trend after the weekend.

This is the BoM's forecast for perth into next week.
TREND FOR SUNDAY, MONDAY and TUESDAY:
Fine before a few showers later. Maximum temperatures: Low 30s cooling to low
20s.


Better purchase some Thunderhead (c) brand alaskan fur coats, also have a sqiz at our brand new top of the line collapsable igloos - available in extra large or extra small smile
Purchase now and get a FREE T-shirt!

my exams went fine - but physics was hard, hated physics! I get my results on Dec 20 smile even if I get 51% for my physics I'll be happy smile

Btw David; that MRF forecast doesn't show frown

a cool weekend, but weather getting warmer. However long range forecast saying another change so will the 'heatwave' or 'hot spell' that others were predicting not going to happen? Would LOVE an extended hot spell a week of 30+ temps.Any chance of THAT happening?

There is some hot weather on the with Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday likely to be over 30 in Melbourne, a weak front should hit on Wednesday night with just the chance of a shower, a more intense front should hit on Saturday with showers before a cool Christmas day likely.

today was a great hot day! sunny light winds and very warm this afternoon after another cool start. It is amazing the cool starts we have had recently....last 4 days I have 11.1, 10.4, 8.9 and 9.9 and so far an average min of 11.9. I haven't got a stat that states what Caroline Springs average min would be(or something equivelant for my area!) but maybe it is still just average who knows!

min: 9.9 max:33.3 (a range of 23.4 degrees in one day. not many places can say that!)

still looking for a mild summer's day but as long as it isnt showery I will be happy!

Was quite hot outside this afternoon in the sun, high cloud moved over around 2 ish but had little impact on the temperture.

Warm again tomorrow ahead of a late change with just isolated showers and thunderstorms, Thursday should be lovely. Friday will be quite hot ahead of a late change with showers and possibly a storm.

Yeah I don't know why BOM do it that way, a 6pm to 9am rule would be much better.

>also....we have an average of about 26.5c for december. A pretty hot December after a warm November and October. Hottest December since....? and when was our hottest December ever?

Tony, we averaged a max of 27.2C in 2003. This is the warmest on record for Melbourne. There was a 27.3C in 1873 at a different Melbourne site with a different screen but these observations aren't comparable (they are probably 0.5 to 1C warmer). I expect we will fall between 26.5C and 27.5C this month which should be good enough for our warmest or second warmest December on record. Welcome to global warming!

The (non) stormchasers BBQ outlook for today (Boxing Day) from the team at AUSSKY.....(just a little tongue in cheek :p )
VICTORIA: Patchy high cloud spreads across the state today associated with an upper broad jet and moisture above 400hPa...not much else happening probably a good BBQ day although boring if you're a weather nut...A bit of stratocumulus in the south and through Gippsland...is that stretching it a bit?...Tooheys Old will be nice with burnt BBQ sausages and salad!...

About 10mm here. Was hoping for more but i am so releived with the temperature, and the outlook is nice, mid 20's and looks not to go over 30's for the rest of the week so some good easy temps there!

One thing I am concerned about is rainfall for the next coming week, it looks VERY dry, infact no rain at all for the next 7days ( frown ) suggests GASP and GFS, althoug the COLA 8day is saying 10 - 20mm although I assume thats for what all fell today.

Dry week ahead, just glad the temperatures arn't hot!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 01/01/2006 21:44

Today started warm a cool change hit in the early afternoon bring rain and much cooler weather. The rain band has cleared but we may still see some isolated light showers or drizzle tonight and early tomorrow with the high humidity. It should fine up to a mostly sunny day

It does look like been dry for a little with some nice pleasant days ahead, and hopefully after that we get some follow up rain.

...or for my lawn that is almost done existent, and dont forget the dams, they need water too! Water Storages are at 58.3% too!

AND while your enjoying the non wet weather at the moment I must tell you that (besides a possible small shower tommorow morning) that GFS and COLA suggest no rain at all untill the 9th. COLA 10day precipitaiton also states we have an under 25% chance of normal rain untill the 9th of January. From the 10th untill the the 17th we have a chance of 2-5mm.

I for one will not wish away any rain!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 03/01/2006 13:21

i never wish for fine days, love each rainy day as it comes, as you never know when the next one may come.
when i lived in townsville, during the drought of the mid 90s' tville went some 110days without any recorded rainfall - thats a long spell for an east coast city. was shocking.
anyway,
long spell of fine weather this week aswell, recorded 0.2mm this morning in a heavy shower about 830am. models hinting on a lingering trough on sunday or monday, might bring some storm activity thru, only thing of intrest this week by the looks.

in melbourne do you notice the change in maximum and minimum temperatures? In brisbane it's roughly the same day or night - it constantly feels warm (no relief)

for melbourne:

17C 36C

during daytime when it's 36C it is stinking hot (right?) and then about what time does it go to 17C?

Melbourne is easy livin weatherwise when you come back from the wet season in the tropics (just back from Broome). The temperature in the tropics just stays around the same. Then a great storm comes in & the humidity clears - briefly.
Before the monsoon its unbearably hot & humid. But you cope ok wandering around the town with your water & your hat perspiring more in 1 hour than you do in a lifetime in Melbourne. But its great. Yeah Melbourne is so easy weatherwise with its cool temperate climate.

I think Melbourne is glary - notice how many people wear sunnies all year round.
But today did not feel hot to me at all
It could be coz we just got back from Broome & I havent been reaclimatized to Melbournes weather controlled environs runnin at 20c 24/7

natasha natasha natasha,
1. Melbourne people are not the only ones who wear sunglasses all year round. I had relatives over from Italy during the winter and even the 10yo wore sunglasses on the most cloudiest/wettest day.
2. when you come from a hot place like Broome, to Melbourne, of course Melbourne isnt going to feel hot...even at 32 degrees. And also it isnt the heat, the humidity gets some people. I die at 27 degrees and high humidity compared to 40 degrees and single digit humidity.
3. And I have lived in Melb all my life and I dont know anyone who complains 25 is hot. everyone i know agree 35 is when the weather is hot. And we have had a few this season.

just had to say it cause Melbournes climate is one of the most comfortable in the world I believe. Not too hot, not too cold, not many extremes(but when we do they can be doozies!!) We just sometimes get the seasons mixed up a bit lol.

Indeed Norfolk Melbourne IS the most moderate of climates I agree - so easy & pleasant after high humididity of the North West places like Broome.
I think its where we live here in Prahran we are surrounded by people who like the more expensive climatized lifestyle. They do indeed complain if its OVER 25c believe it or not. But I guess each to their own heh. LOL Still I am surprised it doesnt black out around here as the office aircons also run 24/7 365 days of the year here too.
Yeah we can get 4 season in one day for sure hehehe

well another weird day. Quite humid and mostly cloudy although the sun came out for a spell, it has now cooled off considerably. Inland centres though were extremely hot 44 in Swan Hill.

for me 25 is hot and so i have air con running all day and in the car etc... i guess i am a wimp...
i am average build but i don't know why i have a hard time with heat & humidity but no one else like me does. i guess that is just me. well... this is a little something that as a guy i will never hint to anybody i associate with. but only here where i am annonymous. anything from 0-10deg is my ideal climate.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 10/01/2006 23:22

First of all, Twisters, its been drizzling here most of the night, which is great so I hope it reaches other places as well.

2nd to bigbytes

first of all 25 and high humidity can be hot for me too. I dont like the humidity when it is too high. Something which doesnt happen much.

extremese we can get are like our NYE this year 43/44 degrees (although in the NW of vic at the moment these temps seem normal!)

we had rainfall extreme this feb of over 100mm but this isn't normal.

subzero temps dont seem to happen in the city anymore, but can happen in the suburbs, so thats another extreme i suppose. And we have had daytime temps below 10.

and melb's droughts, maybe not long occurance of no rain at all, but below average rainfall has been happening now for a few years now

however I must say due to our very mild and comfortable climate...these extremes are very rare and not to be expected. Thats why I love Melbourne's weather so much. Frustrating at times yes....but rarely uncomfortable.
Posted by: Twisters

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 11/01/2006 01:51

There have been a few extremes

The NYE heatwave 43c across most MElb
August Snow event to Sea level
Feburay Cyclone 120mm in 24 hours
Dec 2002 2003 Thunderstorms they flooded NE Burbs

Last few summers have been very intresting this one just looks hot and Dry

Still 30c at 1:30am atm with SSW winds and hopeflly light rain band to my far west

Thats good news norfolk looks like the drizzle might go most of the night smile

well that change really cooled the air and today is just a cool cloudy summer's day, dont think we will get past 21 degrees today, hope it has cooled considerably for ya Twisters.

did you get any rain/drizzle up there Twisters? And I assume its all nice and sunny there again.

I remember once up in Mildura, it was september and we had a really hot day, possibly low to mid 30's(for sept thats hot!) a change went through and was back to sunny weather, if it was melb, we would have been cold and cloudy(like today!!) I love Mildura, must get back there soon!!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 11/01/2006 16:48

Yeah that ture norfolk after nearly every change here from say Sept till April the day or night after a change it is bak to fine and sunny Weather never have cool cloudly days after a change only in winter and that is rare to in winter normally mostly sunny after a cold front went though the day before

Today is a great exmaple after 43c and gusty Nw winds and cloud yeaterday today was 33c with not a cloud in the Sky and light SSW winds prefect day and this will be the coolest we get till the next cool change as back up to highs 30s by the weekend might even be bak to 40 next monday tuesday

Nah Norfolk apart from spits at 2am and a light shower at 9am we got nothing the 9am shower only half wet the ground and by 10:30am this morning it was clear sunshine by 1pm the east sky was clear of cloud to my E so not a cloud in the sky and there wont be for a few days smile

bigbytes if I remember correctly, most of that snowfall in August occured SE of Melbourne, not sure if Melbourne itself got anything, even though people up in sunbury said it was snowing there.....i think it was more just very light drizzle but then i am no snow expert smile

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 11/01/2006 21:40

I Snowed to Sea level at most places south and Se of Frankston frankston had a shower and wind chill dropped to -3c which is insane for the temp was about 5c it was a great day Most places south of frankston that got rain that day had snow to rain snow mix places like Mt martha, Morningtion, Flinders, Hasting, portsa, Authers seat, Red hill etc etc etc

It was a great day it was so cold cause air was coming from well S Sw in winter like thousands of Km south of us that the reason it so cold was great day

Indeed I think that SOME Melbourne ppl have lowered their ability to cope with heat becoz they run the A/C ALL the time even in winter. So their bodies adjust to coping only in temperatures between 18c & 20c. They melt if its over 25c.
Melbourne only maxed about 22c today & the A/C lovers in our office were happy to go outside - actually outside rather than scurry to their cars or back into an A/C office. Oh well whatever makes em happi I guess
Phunni but since I came back from Broome the weather has been mild in Melbourne.

I know i shouldnt whine and that forecasting can be hard but low 20's temps are just not an average January and we have had 12 days of the 17 in January below average grrrrr.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 22/01/2006 23:13

Is it because the change is slipping south east that sydney is only going for a top of 30 degrees tomorrow? If so how did temperatures in melbourne reach 43 degrees today with only a weak change moving through. Surely the northerlies should not have been as strong
Posted by: Adiabatic

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 22/01/2006 23:21

No the change is slipping more SE and it in itself helped tend the flow strong Nly over the state as the front peaked and then slipped away. Gusts were up to 90kmh at times in some areas ahead of the front aiding to fire situation. The startling and frightening element in all of this is that there was mid teen Dps and you could only imagine if there was little humidity!

Sydney will be in a light Nly flow so this travels mainly paralell along the coastline. You need a stronger NW-W flow to get your temps soaring which is not going to happen.
Posted by: timy06

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 22/01/2006 23:37

Thanks for your answer.Is it possible that this change will pick up along the coast of nsw 2morrow and send the syd temps soaring. Because the bom is predicting a southerly change on tuesday with a top of only 25. If the change blows in monday evening it will likely be a lot warmer I cant believe the bom hasnt gone for a much safer prediction of 35 degrees because if the seabreeze blows in early it wont even reach 30, and based on the the predicted later arrival of the seabreeze the temp will easily reach 35 if the seabreeze doesnt arrive before 2pm. In my experience a hot day in melbourne is usually followed by a hot day in sydney. Maybe Im clutching at straws its just that I want sydney to experience that magnificent heat of new years day again.

It did get quite hot up here though, not so much the first heat wave (fri/sat I think), but yesterdays one was really hot on the island aswell. Smoke in the air, its horrible with all the fires going around the state!

About 0.5mm over the weekend (friday night), and was releived when the cool change came aswell last night!

Hey all,

after yesterday's heat today was a relief.
cloudy for most of the day with some hazy sun in the afternoon.
Earlier the sun was shining through some smoke haze and cast a very eerie red glow around. I assume the smoke was from the devestating Anakie fire.

Got hit today by one of these little storms (North Eastern Vic). Temp went 36 - 25 in 30 minutes and just before the storm hit it went from 33 - 36 in 15 minutes.

Saw 90km/hour max gust and 70km/hour average wind just ahead of the storm. There was some minor flooding about 10km from here, we just got the edge of the storm so only saw a few mm unfortunately.

Hopefully get some more over the next few days.

hey guys.....back from my long weekend at Echuca.

we stayed a little to the east of echuca at a place called river valley. Near both the Murray and Goulburn Rivers.

It was very hot all four days of the weekend. 41 on both Thursday and Friday as well as on sunday when we left, with a 37 degree day on the saturday. The air was quite humid as well, with a storm hitting on thursday and a few intense storms on the friday. Saturday was very humid however any storms bypassed our camping spot. On the sunday, the drive was interesting as on the way home we noticed some interesting looking cloud formations, with what looked like a big storm near mount macedon area.

thats my weather report for echuca, i dont have any reports for home as i had no one here to record any temps, but i see it got to at least above 40 again here, i assume on thursday smile

Nice cool change today here, so cool I needed a jumper to go outside, which was a very nice change.
It's currently 17C and windy. 79KM/h (42 knots) max guest and many peaks in the 50 - 60km/h's for well over an hour now and it is getting stronger and stronger. Things are blowing around everywhere outside !

Drizzly old day here in Sale once again. Barely hitting the ground but is is a welome relief from last week. I see Bom have downgraded the forecast for wednesday from "rain at times" to "mostly cloudy with a little rain". This trough sure has everyone clueless with whats going to happen next!

Taken from the latest Melbourne forecast.

Tonight and Thursday
Rain periods clearing during the morning. Afternoon sunny periods. Chiefly light
to moderate south to southwesterly wind freshening during the afternoon.

Whats with this "chiefly" business, is there such a word, oh yer, my chiefly chief hat I spose.

Yeah, we also had several other days with nothing worth recording here,just what the bom call 'trace'. Lucky that when it did rain we got something substantial.
We had 24mm on the 11th, 9mm on the 27th and 7.5mm on the 29th, plus some drizzle and brief showers which made up the rest of the total that i wouldn't call 'rain days'.
Still, in March 2004 I recorded 6.4mm here for the month-not very good frown

Even though its been dry, it hasn't felt like it. The mild temperatures are a really nice break, and even if it is dry it dosn't matter 'cause i aint feeling hot. Today was actually cold, the wind and the clouds came over, really refreshing and got me exited about the snow season and winter. I like these reminder days smile .

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 11/02/2006 17:57

1.8mm overnight, 18.2mm before that, and 0.2mm to start it all off, so a total of the passing system of just over 20mm.

I am REALLY loving it right now! Cool night, cool to mild days. With temps in the low to mid 20's you can get anything done without being too cold or hot. Yay for this period of autum weather smile . I hope it lasts!

morning kids,
i am back, feels cold out there this morning after suffering thru 2 weeks off hot and humid 33-35C days and 27C nights up townsville way. some serious shaffing thats for sure!!! lol. disapointing weather up there, only a couple of showers over the entire two weeks, meant to be wettest time of year up there. got a good shot of wall cloud on camera somewhere, got to get orgranised and post it soon.
thanks to karl for your input that day big fella.
anyway, my sister emptied my gauge while i was away and i can report 39mm so far this month, with a decent 26mm recorded one day last week.

It has been quite a cool Feburary so far after hot weather in December and Janurary.

cloud clearing to mostly sunny weather this afternoon, warming up for tomorrow and Thursday with some instability produce isolated showers and storms mostly in the east and about the central ranges.

Very comfortable weather here for the last 4 days now, hopefully a chance of some of that instability creeping off the ranges on thursday (note bom changed the forecast to 'possible shower/thunderstorm').
The sun must be stronger because it felt hotter then it was today. (Got to 24C here today)

OoooooH - I noticed the sky today Jane - like how the color nearer the horizon was lighter & more Azure - sort of richer in mixes of color.
(& I had drank nothing - promise)
It looked amazing. And the clouds were interesting too - quite light and thin nearer the horizon (if I recall correctly)

Typical Autum/March weather. Wont be long till we start seeing those frosty monrings again(shivers up my spine). This week looks very boring with a few days in the low to mid 30's. Hopefully we will see another burst of storms before the 22nd of March.

Today's relative warmth (21.4 max in the city so far) has spoilt one potential notable stat - had it not reached 20 again this autumn, the last day over 20 in autumn (April 28) would have been the earliest since 1909.

After a wet start to the month we are now being dominated by high pressure, the barometer has been above 1020hpa for ten days now and consequently we are not getting that much rain now. Sitting on 59mm's for the month in Cranbourne with not much expected over the next week. Temperatures remain cool max today here was just 13.6c and outside now its just 5.4c, looks like a frosty night in the outer subs tonight. may get as low as 2c here if the cloud stays away.

Yes Dane, Clear and calm skies may well produce a frosty start here in Eltham.I recorded 4.2mm from a brief heavy shower just after sunset last night.Given the build up east of town yesterday i'am surprised that we didn't get a storm!

Coldest morning of the year so far for me at 5.1C at 7.50am. Lots of dew around on the lawn and the car, but no frost (but I haven't been out to check yet!). Not a breath of wind either, sun is shining and only a few sparse clouds around.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/05/2006 11:00

i recorded 0.2C this morning SG, was back up to 3C at 730am. damn chilly one, didnt think it would get so low, bit unprepared walking outside to check.
Posted by: Mick10

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/05/2006 13:06

some nice convective bloom occuring outside atm, some dark bases, could just be enough moisture in these SE'ers for a decent burst or two.
looks like its WA's turn for some wet weather while we are under continual belt of high pressure. nothing to come thru until at least tuesday of next week at this stage.
i have had 62mm for the month so far, average is 78mm. still well short with a dry week ahead.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/05/2006 16:29

0.2C Mick, wow that is a tad chilly! The sunshine didn't last terribly long unfortunately, and I spent most of the today outside. Comfy 20C inside now, but my toes are still trying to thaw out wink

54mm for me for the month. Would be nice if these clouds deliver, but I doubt it very much. The Weather Station is predicting rain though.....

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/05/2006 18:13

I had 0.9C overnight and into this morning. No rainfall and none to really come.

BoM going for 7C which is a tad high for the city. I think 4C again overnight for the CBD and near 1C overnight through the suburbs.

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/05/2006 18:20

Hasn't been so boring out this way today. Nice, moist onshore showers around with brief heavy bursts. Great looking cloud development as well.

Hoping this low will keep its current SSW trend-may get a decent period of rain from it

3mm from this event-feels like more than that smile
Posted by: Proteus

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/05/2006 19:02

Just had another nice shower (2mm) and 6mm for the event so far, ironically Bairnsdale just up the road has done very much better.
Posted by: Petros

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/05/2006 19:06

Hard to know where to post for this one.

7.5mm since last evening, 9mm for the event.

Pengs mention of SSW with the low got me scrambling to the satloop. I thought the system was still tumbling its way northwards along the lower NSW coast.

You might be right Peng - even if proves to be only thicknening of the wraparound band, any extra around here overnight would be great.!! smile
Posted by: Adiabatic

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 23/05/2006 19:11

I think there is a low risk of it coming more SW to increase rain areas into the entire Gippsland region. Showers will maintain the current intensity over the areas being affected currently for atleast the next 12hrs before it all contracts Ewards slowly.

40-60mm falls possible in the far E overnight. 10-25mm falls between Orbost and Mallacoota and falls of up to 10mm from Sale to The Lakes.

Well the Satloop is starting to look a bit clearer now, East Gippsland looks to cop a flogging tonight. Amazing to here that Proteus, cant believe Bairnsdale squeezed out nearly an inch last night compared to your 6mm
eek

Petros-my initial thoughts from the Satloops this arvo were that the low was more biased to the SSW in its movements (based on the wrap around features, low centre, and the last few Synops). Im probably wrong and sorry to get your hopes up, but I'd much rather hear your thoughts then my pissy predictions!

There is a thread to post in "East Coast Rain Event", although the Gippsland area isn't exactly East Coast it is still coastal and adjacent to the eastern facing coastline of NSW (well actually ESE facing)

Another 0.5mm here also Peng, even though it seemed more. Totalled 8mm for the event at this point and would not expect much more now. Great falls further East but alas not here.

This May has indeed been very cloudy and cold. BOM records show that only an average of 4 hours sun shone each day in Melbourne. Again it is cloudy outside.

not a pleasant month and neither was April.

Drizzle and cloud is expected on Sunday and Monday, followed by 2 mostly cloudy (fine!) days than showers from Thursday onwards. When will it end? Is it normal for such gloom to happen in May?
Posted by: norfolk

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 27/05/2006 17:54

Beautiful fog yesterday morning on my way to the ASWA meeting. Took my camera just in case I might go for a 'fog chase' on the way home, but it had all cleared up by the time I left. frown

Great to see a little drizzle around this morning, doesn't do much at all for the catchments, but will keep my garden happy for a while longer :rolleyes:

opened the blinds, sun is out! No more nuclear winter for atleast now.

the relief of seeing sun after wet gloom is akin to the relief one experiences after an explosive elimination following painful indigestion.

Funny old day up here.. we've had fog, drizzle, the odd heavish shower, sunshine, and another bank of fog about to roll in with drizzle. Had 3.3mm all up, making our 25th day of the month with either rain or fog. We've had 19 fogs this month and 24 rain days! The number of fog days is about 5 more than any other month in the last 5 years.

Shame with all the gloom, it looks unlikely that we will get our monthly average rainfall.. with 18mm still to go.

It just wets the concrete here and we get 0.2mm.
It doesnt help anything but is enough to bring the traffic in inner Melbourne to a slow crawl and just enough to get pedestrians wet and just enough to make a miserable overcast day.
Now if we get 10 - 20mm thats a different story. Even 5mm in gonna help but 0.2mm just a pest

oh dear lord, you have my deepest sympathies. Where do you live?

Twisters I agree, this wretched May felt worse than our Julys. The persistant gloom and the wet ground every morning plus the cold that just drains you of all motivation.

Some stats from the BOM:

Sunshine hours: 4 per day (will reduce by months end)

Thankfully, the seasonal outlook favours more above average temps and an increased chance of below average rainfall smile

Had almost 5mm today from showers and drizzle. Band just gone through dropping about 1.5mm. I have had 87mm this month, not bad considering how dry it has been in the last 2 weeks or so.
Hopefully those big high presure systems hanging around move a bit further north. Snow season almost here again, can't wait, fingers crossed for some nice Antartic blasts soon.

Also my max was lower than the rest of melbourne. (I might have to re assess where i have my sensor LOL)

Here at my place we have had 9.5mm in the last 7 days (Plus another 2mm this morning). It certainly looks and feels like more though.

However in places like Bairnsdale and Orbost they have got around 1.5-2 inches over the last week and a bit. And if you go even further east to places like Combienbar and Mallacoota, up to and over 100mm.

hi all, first.......
Jane sorry for the misunderstanding I actually meant if anyone knew what the altitude of Caroline Springs is, but thanks for the info anyway :-)

secondly........
what a day!!! cold and wintry and very foggy. the fog pretty much stayed around all day as we all know and caused some very cold temps. hopefully some sun around later in the week. am taking the kids to school camp from wednesday until friday!!!

Caroline Springs: min:2.5 max:11.2
Melbourne: min: 3.1 max:11.1

Chilly max of 9.2C at home yesterday. This morning we had fog about 100m down the hill, and strato cu above.

BTW looks like there is a cluster of cumulus in bass strait associated with a little cold pool. Worth watching to see where this heads (at the moment it is heading toward Phillip Island).

another freezing morning, just nudging about 0C until the fog rolled in.
already down to 5C outside now, cloud has cleared and it is still as. min temp will be determined by the timing of fog.

Not likely this month
6c day time top in melb even in winter is very very rare more like 8-10c that only occurs in the strogest of out breaks i just want massive tropical infeed and low with 50mm falls all over

Cant really say isnt been a cold winter temp wise espically for min temps

Watch for another 10 days of Cold Dry sunny and cloudly weather more frost next week quite severe at times again next week

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 09/06/2006 20:16

Geez is this getting boring. Early fog then a hazy afternoon. We don't even get the frosts up here in the hills due to persistent katabatics.

I cannot recall such a prolonged period of mega highs outside of an El Nino event. This will go down in the record books if it keeps going.

Watch for some seriously cold minimum temperatures if the winds drops off on Sunday/Monday nights. The 850 temperatures on Sunday are icy and could see snow flurries to quite low level (if there is any precip).

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 10/06/2006 16:00

ok a few questions.
This the foggiest start to June in melbourne since when?
Coldest start (overnight temps) in melbourne in June since when?
Coldest start(overnight temps) in suburbs in June since when?

Can we compare this start to june to any other previous junes?

Everybody there is the challenge...get your records out!!!

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 10/06/2006 18:57

At last, some sign of a change-very light rain moving down from the ranges. Reckon its reaching the ground?
Posted by: Twisters

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 10/06/2006 19:06

THis might answer some of your questions tony

Thanks to the BOM are the following Quotes

It was a bleak day in Melbourne today, and after a minimum of 4.7 degrees
recorded at 7:18 am, fog and mist returned to most suburbs drifting off Port
Phillip in a light southerly wind. The maximum in the city only reached 9.6
degrees 4:23pm as a result of the bleak conditions. This is 4.5 degrees below
the June average, and today was the coldest maximum in Melbourne since 9th
August 1998 [8.9 degrees] and the coldest June maximum since 29th 1983 [8.5
degrees]. The mornings have also been very cold on average for the start of the
month, and for the start of winter this year. In the first 10 days of June,
Melbourne City's minimum temperature has averaged 5.3 degrees, the coldest since
June 1982 [3.8 degrees].

Also intresting to note is this

Warrnambool's minimum of -3.4
degrees was the lowest ever recorded there, blitzing the previous record of -2.5
degrees RECORDED YESTERDAY!

That is insane for a coastal town amxing cold spell we are haveing

It is snowing in the mounts to which is great news for them i think some of it is reaching the ground peng

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 10/06/2006 20:36

thanks twisters, I did see that after I wrote it...someone at the BOM must have been on the same wave length as me!! SCARY!!! lol

well what a day! as we all know, fog, haze and cloud all stopped the temp from rising significantly. same out here/ was freezing cold, fog and haze all mingled into one weird day.

min:1.6 max:9.2

it is 6.1 here now makes me wonder how long Melbourne has had where the temp did not reach above 10 degrees and do u think we could get it this winter smile
Tony
Posted by: thomo

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 10/06/2006 21:07

Yeah great Twisters.

Warrnambool Airport is about 10km's inland off the coast. So for them to say that, it's most likely wrong. Portfairy is more likely to be a more accurate temperature for Warrnambool as the weather station is a lot closer to the coast. Portfairy mins were Fri 1.7 and Sat -0.3.

I knew it was cold this morning, and the power was off half the night which didn't help.

1mm here from showers
Posted by: David_dup1

Re: Melbourne & Victoria day to day weather - 11/06/2006 08:14

A massive 2.8mm overnight, nearly trippling our month to day smile

It is cold enough up here in the Dandenongs this morning for us to get snow if only we could get some showers. Dunns Hill temp/dew point combination would see snow fall down below 500m.

The week ahead has another mega high but it looks likely to put us into SW'lies for much of the week which should see Sc rather than fog. Hopefully Thursdays front will pack some punch.

should be enough moisture about to keep the min temps up around the coastal areas with some cloud this week now. thursday night front might bring a few more mm's to coastal areas aswell.
would love a good decent, thick NW cloudband right now settle the dust across the country.

looks like we might get a break from these highs after this weekend, long way away though.

Weather Channel says some rain is on the way - But where is the rain - not that useless drizel which produces 0.2mm in a day - real rain.
Maybe we need to do a rain dance here.

Very dry here to only 9mm though still got 10 days of the month left sure we will get another 10mm

Melbourne min:2.7 max:14.1
