    I observe a chilly start to July East of Melbourne at 10.30am. I observe my fingers rapidly getting frost-bitten and that the birds will be ice-skating rather than bathing in our birdbath. I also observe our birdbath needs a clean.

    Plenty of sub zero when I went on the ride this morning. My AWS was just hovering above zero, there was plenty of hollows that were less. The MYT pontoons were covered in frost / ice.

    You wouldn't want to observe any black ice!

    Noted as possible issue about a month ago in another thread. It is forecast to get <10% RH today but I think it needs re-calibrating.
    Perisher currently in the 15-20% so think something in between 10 & 20% is where it should be ATM.

    Looks like Perth struggled today. It luckily reached it's max (16C) @10am and hovered around 10C after 12:30PM. It's currently on 9.6C @4pm.
    That's bitterly cold for Perth.
