    7mm in the can for Melbourne. Less than I was expecting when I woke up tbh, but good nonetheless.

    Grey heavy skies in the upper Blue Mtns.

    *cough cough look the other way *, I found this useful as a visual explanation for members of my flying club.

    Never forget getting a Subaru bogged down there in similar conditions. 3 boys pushing me driving, all got very muddy but we got the car out. Lucky cos it was the mother in laws car o_O
    Nillacootie is pretty low too. Nice to see the whole area a bit greener.

    Yeah it's interesting to see the shift of focus from Central to Western VIC. Well deserved in the more NW parts. There could be a bit more as the low moves further eastward for Melbs at the looks of things.

    Makes sense. That’s the thoroughfare of the cold pool and in turn the instability.

    Result of the front having slowed vis a vis progs?

    If progress remains slow, hopefully eek a bit more moisture out of it

    Simply the rotation is putting the SE in rain-shadow. Western parts and the NE should and will do well.
    Melbourne might do alright 'til midafternoon, but my suspicion is the NE ranges will keep us mostly in rain-shadow though.
    We had 3mm in our AWS at home.

    Don't know. It does seem to be sucking up moisture from central Bass Strait, but I would have figured it was too cold to provide too much.

    It seems to get a little bit off the Bay and upper Bass Strait, per the radar. Could be noise however.

    Still looks like plenty more in the tank for Geelong and surrounds and further north to Ballarat, Geelong itself has done over 30mm in the past 12 hours.

    50mm in 14 hours is an impressive effort.
    Flood warnings coming soon perhaps.

    Top 24 hour falls in Victoria: 59mm at Ben Nevis, 56mm at Aireys Inlet, 53mm at Eversley, 48mm at Meridith and Mt Buninyong.

    Son is at a school camp not far from Aireys Inlet. They would have had fun in tents last night :D

    Snowing at thredbo according to the live basin cam.
    I would be guessing that the freezing level is above about 1900 m at the moment.

    Still a fair bit of cooling required for snow to fall to Front Valley level. Current temps put the snow level near 2000m. Coldest 850s should hit the NSW resorts by 1pm.

    That is the FL. That isn't the level snow is going to fall to which is about 300m lower than that, depending on the upper level conditions.

    But nonetheless the Low level temps aren't great for anything below 1800m ATM

    Looking at the PV front valley cam doesn't look like it's being snowing there at all let alone turning white evidenced by the current temps of 2.6

    That's so cool. Closest you will probably get to snow on the beach in Victoria.
