    Wind was making a right old racket, ended up with earplugs so we could sleep.

    BOM even more bullish this morning on the rain for Melbs. 15-25mm today, 3-10 tomorrow.
    Windy, cold, possible hail, showery for Cox Plate at Moonee Valley. No doubt the mainstream news bulletins will show plenty of shots of scantily clad "fillies" out there "braving the conditions".

    Think of the gains bro.
    Summer's almost here...I think. Although it mightn't arrive until March at this rate.

    Geelong and the Surf Coast really copping a drenching right now.

    Probably not helping the landslide situation down there on the GOR.

    Gippsland to cop a drink, the NE looks to be spared somewhat. Probably a good one for Melb storages.

    Rapidly cooling down in Melbourne.
    Was moderately pleasant (temp wise) earlier, now quite nippy.

    Was 18C this morning at 6am. Now down to only 14.
    Mt William has dropped 6C today, is now under 3C up there, so plenty of cold air to sweep in very soon.

    Raining solid now here in Chelt.

    Radar looks like it should continue as such for a fair chunk of this arvo.

    Stopped raining here, intermittent showers and 9c in the melbourne cbd.

    Going for a top of 13 tomorrow. I feel like that is reasonably darn cold for this late in October. Not complaining. Snow to 800m according to the BOM.

    About 10-15mm of rain overnight at Thredbo AWS, temp and precip rates are dropping so it should be turning to snow around now.

    Judging from snow cams around Victoria, mostly dustings and couple of cms.
    LM might have done the best out of this one 5-10cm I guess

    And... sleety mix/wet snow fell at Matlock last night!

    Has this Oct set some kind of snow fall record, either by amount and/of frequency?

    It's borderline ridiculous, been look forward to getting to the beach, but not in this kind of weather.

    Who knows!? not much data outside of the season to go off, but I reckon we can all agree it's above average for both amount and frequency.

    Evidence of a true SSW feed. One of it's better falls this year, that's for sure.

    Today truly feels like the depths of winter in melbourne. Been watching coldies stream across the bay all day from my apartment. Wind blowing, rain on the windows, small hail pattering on the glass and me with the heater on, a hot beverage and a grin.
