Here she comes.
Look at that conveyor belt of systems.
This is going to be big.
Obs thread a month ahead
Err, yes. I will lend you my crystal ball, @Jellybeans !
Somebody clearly has the morning blues!
I observe the prediction thread sitting on 18k views (in not even a week).
I wonder how many of those are the Grasshoper on the CNTRL+R.
Beautiful looking day outside in Sydney, the air feels crisp and it doesn’t seems as Smokey as it’s been recently thankfully .
Still warm in Melbourne but skies darkening and a sense of foreboding that precedes a really good storm.
8mm of wet so far at Perisher.
Too warm now. But some cold air coming looking at the satellite. Should hit mountains after midnight IMO.
That speckled goodness.
Just started nuking rain near the airport.
Light rain starting now in Melbourne City
Mount William 5C and 15mm in the tank for today.
Temp dropping. Snow in the Vic resorts to 1800m by 11pm IMO
Winter just hit Melbourne, yay.
Tonight’s front just about to hit the strezleckis Gippsland. Fire is going for the first time in about a week.
Raining heavily Melbourne inner NE
Winter switch has been turned on
Rain clearing out of Melbourne City now, we had a good drop - just over 6mm. Not overly cold - sitting on 13 ATM.
Been hammering down the last 3 hours in the Dandenongs. 21.6mm, some really heavy falls at times. Wind picking up now as it’s clearing. Still 10c.
Mount William 9pm 3.1 Degrees, 16.2 mm in the can.
27.1C in Sydney today. Last chance for a beach day tomorrow before the effects of this system creep north. Wish there was some rain due with it
Is that something or do I have SDS?
Bit warm for Buller overnight. Looks like it snowed early but no accumulation.
Currently snowing on South Peri cam, negligible accumulation though.
Suns out, no guns out this morning.
22mm in Charlotte Pass gauge in the last 24 hours. Sitting on 0C at the moment.
Could sure feel that pre-fontal this morning at Kiama/Gerroa. All very confused from one wind gust to the next. Warm one moment hint of cold the next, and ... Now feels to be cooling nicely.
Meanwhile, a few hope fulls at "backdoor"
Clear and sunny on the northwest coast of Tassie but starting to get some love down south
Has that "somethings coming" feel to it in Sydney this morning...
Hotham on -2.3 degrees now
Buller on -1.9 degrees
Falls on -1.0 degrees
Buller got a bit of a dusting (and seems rather busy for the pre-season):
Hotham earlier this morning:
Absolutely pelting down rain and blowing a hooley here in NW Tassie and that mawson cam has turned white again, I think I can safely say "INCOMING"
Been below or near zero at the big 5 today no prefrontal rain just snow bring it on.
Using GFS's simulated IR modelling HERE, you can see the current IR Himawari sat pic as such:
Ben Lomond getting pasted
Crash boom lightning embedded in the front near Cape Otway
Some suggestively gusty wind picking up in Canberra.
Sydney was gorgeous today - started off cloudy but cleared by lunchtime and was absolutely sparkling. Sat in the sun this afternoon having beers after soccer. Felt like late summer still.
Polies must be returning to town for the week.
Altocumulus and nimbus flying over Melbourne as I bbq the kids dinner (before it go dark).
A lovely day in Jindabyne after a wet windy night. Cloud building behind the range.
Cape Otway AWS just got flogged by the frontal band.
14mm in an hour.
Make that 18mm in 2 hours.
A foreshadow for things to come for the mountains.
Well I was very surprised by the 6mm this morning @ farmlet Bywong. A nice little tank top up. Happy days. More of the same please.
I observe we really don't want all their hot air before ski season. Happy if they bunker down in their own electorate.
And so it begins.....
Crossing the bay at the moment, gusty wind has really picked up ahead of it.
I observe the higher snowguns are blasting on FV
Where we're going - we don't need snow guns!
You mexicans need some bloody live webcams (that work in the dark too).
