    Dry on Melb roads this morning..wind velocity low.....overcast with moderate height clouds of a non threatening composition....probably cumulonimbus

    The usual idiot drivers providing entertainment on the western suburb commute!

    Radar says not much juice left in this system

    Coldies rolling through eastern burbs.
    Was decidedly wet and cold in Canterbury and stayed that way to almost Richmond.
    Dry west from there.

    Impressive. Half the state was subzero while a large portion near to freezing. The city dropped to 6.6 according to BOM.

    Be interested in seeing the map again for the coming days with lower temps on the forecast

    ATM Melbourne is the post card snapshot of winter - Cloud covered, rainy and cold (7c presently).

    We dropped to another 6'ish overnight in the city, suburbs again look to have been all in the low single digits. Lots of negatives or near 0 around the state.

    Baw Baw looking as nice this morning as it did a few weeks ago:

    Some big Whales (or is it Wale?) appearing around Perisher and other resorts
    Cold + low humidity + no wind = snowmaking

    Me too, I thought they were landing in Port Melbourne before, they got almost to ground level I'd say - then they fired up the gas and went back up, drifting off over St Kilda and beyond

    @piolet @dibl0c
    Is that a thing?
    Have you seen snow in the air when it's raining at the airport or do you just pass through the clouds so quickly you can't really tell?

    Descending into Queenstown Airport a few years ago it was dumping snow as we flew down the lake at maybe 800-900m then rain down at the airport at 300m.

    BOM forecast says 900m.
    Snowing 1/3 way down Mt Macedon tallies with that quite well.
    Haven't looked at this morning's sounding though.

    Given that the weather is coming from the SSW, Macedon is not in play.

    Certainly was a cold Melbourne winters day today. We barely scraped to 11c at 2pm, the rest of the day we hovered between 7-10. It's good to feel this kind of cold, however fleeting it may be

    Gets down to -4 tonight in Canberra. The Tigers played the Raiders on a snowy ground down there once.
    Bathurst also gets to -4 tonight.
