Moderate falls through SW WA over the last 24 hours.
Current temps are very cool.
We need that magic phase shift to.move the peaking fronts from Perth and the Bight to the Vic/NSW . I Remember some years back in a particularly bad season I think it was Falls Expat who first notice the lead indicators some time in advance in late July after all hope had nearly evaporated. One of the best calls ever made on here.
The 'WA peaks' are typically climatically driven, not a progressional phase.
I, for one, have noticed that the SW WA region has had a number of recent winters in this 'peak'. Bluff Knoll has been blessed with 5-8 snowfalls a year in the last 3-4 years, up from the typical 2-3 occurrences a winter.
IO ocean SST's & East Coast (longitudinal) zonals have a lot to answer for here IMO. It's not just a case of this pattern migrating Eastward...
Now back to Obs:
Rocky Gully (250m ASL), curently sitting on +3.4C with precip in the last hour. Bound to be a flurry on Bluff Knoll this AM IMO.
Driving through Sutton Forest now, visibility is down to less that 100m in front,
Low lying cloud and misty
Mild today in Melbourne.
Back in the shorts for the ride to work.
Mild in Sydney, too.
Would love for it to be dry for a couple of days so that we can get rid of some of the damp. It must have rained at least once every day for the last few weeks. I see that we’ve smashed our rainfall average in the city, but probably not enough in the catchment.
^only 5mm on the news last night. (catchment)
Stunning morning in Cann river. Very cold and frosty through central gippsland early this morning.
Once so far this season (late April) and twice or three times last winter from memory - maybe 2 falls in August. Not 5-8 times though...happy to be proven wrong.
You're basing it off news reports...
2016 "Most snow days ever recorded in WA as state experiences coldest winter in 24 years"
2017 - One, Two, Three
Given there's no AWS or scarcely populated in bad weather it's a tall argument but I reckon I have a better idea than '# of reported falls'.
It's likely to have seen snow today, so that would make it 2 for the season and we're only a month into Winter.
Almost 20 deg here in SE Melb suburbs
Windy, mostly cloudy at buller. Not overly cold.
That's the thing though, people flock there at the slightest hint of snow. It's almost assured to make the news every time. Even if it's some blokes grainy video of some flakes that never stuck.
It's a horrid 2 hour walk in bad weather (3 hour return). You're off your head if you wanna hit that in a 40 knot, pea souper.
Surely, that first link is enough for you...
Warm in Melbourne today, we topped out just shy of 20c. Looks like a warm night ahead, no heater tonight in the city.
I observe #2 WA snow event of 2019
Some grainy social media images appear right on cue
20-35kph N winds all the way down to Hobart....warmest it's been down there for quite a few days.
It was cold to the body today at Perisher due to very strong winds. On the ground however, things were grim it was so warm the snow was melting very quickly and we even started to get patches of gluggy snow, similar to spring conditions in Sept/Oct.
Far from ideal given what is forecast tomoz! I hope it gets cold enough for snowmaking to operate tonight?
Raining in Mansfield on the way down.
They won't be making snow until Monday at the earliest.
It will be shite till we get a 10-15cm top up on slush tomorrow night
I observe i am happy to stay home/work while the family heads off to the mountain for the school holidays.
I noticed a few drops in Box Hill about a hour ago, with some passing showers over the Melb eastern suburbs.
Bone dry in the city. Balmy as, nice night sitting by the river with a glass of Vino
Cripes! There were rocks showing in numerous wrong places today, ala middle of various runs so let's hope the natural snow due in the coming system accumulates?
Raining pretty hard up here in Port Douglas
You are the weather grinch
What are doing in my neck of the woods? I'm at Trinity Beach and passing showers happening here. It's the weekend, perfect timing
We are forecast up to 50mm here tomorrow, flood warnings issued and all, NW Tassie.
Mid winter break with the misses side of the family.
No offence but not my choice of location, but better than nothing. Rain has stopped now, today was lovely sunny and warm
It's the missus' preferred getaway spot as well. In the process of moving the SIL into her new unit and there wasn't a drop all week until now.
Stay on topic
Misses family choice, not the direct misses. She feels the same.
A warm beach holiday where you can’t go near the beach ain’t my liking
Obviously somewhere in Macrossan St?
Nup, in an air bnb in the burbs.
WA today Bluff Knoll
Ripped from Snowsearch Australia FB
Unlike! Wrong neck of the woods.
Just shy of 11 degrees and rain showers passing through here in Sawmill. Yuck, this is shaping up to be a pretty ordinary day.
Overcast and 4c at perisher, currently raining lightly. Not too windy at this stage
Mild and steady rain now , inner NE Melb
Temp gauge is reading 5 degrees here in smiggs
What he said ^^
15mm in my gauge here in Bendigo over night and a balmy 11degs.
Observing the wipers on the 3rd highest setting at smiggs
Observed this at the start to Rennix Walk...
Lots of folks turning up at PV.... car park attendants in pic will be busy....,and they are getting wet at the moment.
Was it raining at Buller last night? cams look brutal.
No, but it is now...
Oh Buller you fickle little shit
Warm one in Melbourne overnight, around 15 or 16 the whole evening and has only just now dropped into the 13s. So our overnight low will be somewhere around 8:30-9am...
Not much rain in the city, but the roads are wet.
Vic resort cams are not a very pretty sight.
