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

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

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

After the mild windy morning, we finished with a cold windy late arvo, all from NW. Looks like its snowing well up top, nothing spilling over to add to our 1.25mm last night.

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

Re: Cold snap with showers/hail/snow/wind 5/8-8/8 - 08/08/2018 06:53

Some good falls overnight for a large area of Victoria. We scored about 2mm overnight at home in Bayles.

Re: Cold snap with showers/hail/snow/wind 5/8-8/8 - 08/08/2018 12:19

Yeah the ranges and just north and SW Vic did really well much need welcome rain 10-20mm for most.

But the NW and east gippy missed it all yet again and with 2 warm windy days to come more drying

100% NSW in Drought and winter almost over

1-3mm around melb and lots more wind

1.25mm here.

Re: Cold snap with showers/hail/snow/wind 5/8-8/8 - 09/08/2018 11:46

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

Re: Cold snap with showers/hail/snow/wind 5/8-8/8 - 09/08/2018 12:29

Fine sunny calm springlike morning here. .....soon to be upset by the return of Nth sector winds to further parch things out in Gippsland.

Stayed calm and sunny here all day, still calm and seemingly setting up for an unlikely frost tomorrow atm. 17C today, expecting circa 19C here tomorrow (esp. if any showers form in the NW stream "the other side" of the ranges early in the arvo.

1.5mm, frost this morning but a nice day overall.

Agree TB, NE doing well and the fronts regularly splitting to head that way.

Re: Cold snap with showers/hail/snow/wind 5/8-8/8 - 10/08/2018 11:31

Re: Cold snap with showers/hail/snow/wind 5/8-10/8 - 11/08/2018 18:28

Very dry here in N GIppy through to Cann R.

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

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

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

Fire out there still going air support called in today - which had to be brought online as you could imagine nothing is online yet. Earliest air support deployment i've ever seen

Re: Cold snap with showers/hail/snow/wind 5/8-10/8 - 12/08/2018 11:43

Another 0.5mm sometime last night to tally 2.5mm from this weekends frontal system.

Strong westerlies atm, and fine. Wont help with the E Gippsland bushfire.

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