VIC - Week of weather wet weather is back 4/2/19 - 11/2/19 - 03/02/2019 18:44

Hi all,

Looks like pretty active week, particularly mid week as the inland moisture feeds into a surface trough with some upper support on offer. Following that possibly some much cooler weather with some follow up showers in southern areas.

The low up north looks to have drifted a little west today which should hopefully increase our chances mid week.

Thanks for the thread Ruckle! Was just looking to see if someone had started one.

Hoping the trough taps some of the huge moisture in Queensland and delivers us the goods.

had a ripper thunderstorm in Mooroopna 8 km west of Shepparton I received 18 mm in 20 minutes, me and my 2 young boys were at the local pool, you could see the rain band coming like a big black curtain, then it hit, incredible three big oak trees within 40 meters from us on the other side of the pool smashed to the ground , hail and wind for 20 minutes, yet the rain gauge in Shepparton only got 0.6mm,and 60 km gust? unreel how violent it was but so localized, drove across the river to Shepparton and hardly anything , just a few small branches on the ground and a few puddles, how do you get photos from your mobile on here?awesome power to take out those trees , one tree was snapped off half way up, lucky no one was under them,

Severe thunderstorms with many blackouts yesterday afternoon lucky no fires lit around us. We had 9mm rain in ten minutes first rain in over a month.

Despite some very big totals around this area - we got only 2mm in the late afternoon and evening.

Good to hear, Alexia, gleno of your good rain.

Caught the edge of that one as well Glen. Belted down in torrents and we got around 4 mm, the local AWS reported 0. You could see the blackened sky to the east. It was bright and sunny on the west side of the sky and dark and foreboding on the east side of the sky. Glad we only got the edge of it. It was a very localised thunderstorm that's for sure - and no radar at the time to track it!

Re: VIC - Week of weather wet weather is back 4/2/19 - 11/2/19 - 06/02/2019 19:56

Ripper of a cell. Lots of close CG lightning and hence very loud thunder, one hit the power pole over the next street as I was watching and filming, sadly the bolt was just out of the frame, however did get the puff of smoke and sparks from the transformer in the footage.
There was some hail with that cell, we got more lightning than rain however as we only got clipped by the northern edge as it moved towards the south east.

Re: VIC - Week of weather wet weather is back 4/2/19 - 11/2/19 - 06/02/2019 19:59

That cell just completely fell apart frown. Dropped its guts on the inner North.

Can feel cold outflow ahead of it now and its lost its structure completely from front on.

A nice ~17mm by our aws (still to check my gauge) - fairly steady and not too torrential. A couple of really close C G in town that made our house shake and boy were they loud! Power flicked out on the second strike. As always seems to be the case, you look away for a second and miss it as it hits, like RG just missing the strike on their camera!

Is the Melbourne Metro still a chance? It looks like storms are forming East of Melbourne? Did the trough move East?

The trough lying over Victoria is wide from West Horsham to East.

To me it looks like all development is well East of Melbourne now making this a East VIC only event now. Hope to be proven wrong.

6.8mm yesterday which was a tad disappointing after a high of 31.7. Today steamy high 30.8 and no rain. Quite a bit of build up over the last hour but not organised real well so far
Posted by: samboz

Re: VIC - Week of weather wet weather is back 4/2/19 - 11/2/19 - 07/02/2019 19:40

About 2mm in the gauge this AM, left it there, now contains 37mm after heavy rain from the thunderstorms rattling around the area.

With the storms coming down from the N/W we could score a bit more.

High humidity this morning on Sale/Maffra/Riverslea/Sale wander, (riding gloves sodden), everyone was commenting on humidity !

Add 37mm to 17mm in the gauge when returning to Sale last Monday night and we are starting to do alright. smile

Re: VIC - Week of weather wet weather is back 4/2/19 - 11/2/19 - 07/02/2019 20:10

About 4mm here today from some passing noisy showers. Will post 24 hr total tomorrow. But, while Bairnsdale and some other local areas have done well, we haven't scored much here over past several days.

That 37mm & 17mm is pretty specy Samboz!

Looked be heading to a fizzer at Maffra mid arvo yesterday until a weak storm basically brewed itself up over Royal Maffra Golf course, and dumped 22.5mm over 30 minutes:



Very lucky. Post storm rain/drizzle continued on and off after it into the evening, probably added another 3mm or so.

Up to 10mm now for the year.

A whole grand sum of .2mm so far here in Portland for this 'event' apparently, now up to 1.6mm for 2019...... 5-10mm forecast for the morning tomorrow, any proper rain as apposed to mist and dizzle will make it the first proper rain since mid December.

Interesting distribution so far, Falls Creek nudging 62mm for the week and importantly didn't get that in 10 mins but a solid fall each day of the week. Mt Hotham just on 40mm.

Some pretty cool weather brushing by tomorrow.

Same strong SW'ly breeze all day, but full sunshine saw us get to 28C this arvo, ....to do some damage to the benefits of the 32mm rain that fell over Royal Maffra over the past 4 days.
