    5.6 degrees at Moonbah. No wind. A few sprinkles. Watching the early phases of the change come off the range from the verandah.

    Looking at the radar and the rising temps, this is feeling like one of those classic Aussie temps cool down once the big moisture front passes kind of systems.

    Wet wet wet at hotham. Couple of heavy showers through the night and feels like it has set in now. A little bit of a rattle as it hits the window so theres a little ice in it , but lets not beat around the bush. Its looking pretty grim ATM

    Looks like the cold air is just passing Adelaide now by the look of the Satellite image. Hopefully I will be proven wrong.

    To be fair their looks like a decent amount of moisture in the core of the low, so may surprise if we get lucky with a direct hit

    Interesting to hear you saw an inversion.
    Somewhat uncommon with inbound weather.

    Satellite Notes for 1800UTC Chart
    Issued at 5:00 am EST Saturday on 20 June 2020


    A cold front linked to a complex low pressure system is pushing a cloud band
    across parts of New South Wales, Victoria and Tasmania, bringing rain and
    embedded thunderstorms. An area of cold, speckled cloud trails this front in the
    Bight and is approaching southern parts of South Australia.

    Patches of low cloud cover parts of inland New South Wales and Queensland, with
    onshore flow pushing maritime cloud onto the coastline. Low cloud and patchy fog
    for parts of southwest Western Australia.

    You would know more about that stuff than me ,I merely observe what the instruments show and report it. Might it be just localized due to surrounding terrain ?

    It was Sunny and mild and partly cloudy in Narbethong , Heallesville and Yarra Glen this morning. I misread the wet looking forecast and could have/should have gone for a steep slippery hike up Mt . Juliet today. It is still sunny and mild in NE Melbourne. I cannot see any XC skiing happening for 2 weeks at least :-0.

    1.6 degrees at PV, 0.5 top of Thredbo and a stacked radar. (For next few hours at least before the next burst tomorrow) I reckon we are on now.

    About 6d. If it drops a few more degrees here and the moisture continues then .... this will be good for the ski resorts
