It's not it's time yet.
Meanwhile, finally some heavy rain here in Box Hill.
I didn't believe her at first and asked "are you sure this is today?" She lives in Inverloch. Fun morning for the kids (and big kids) there today!
Yeah it's a nice town. Good on them.
It shows the very cold nature of the system.
Yeah my attempt at humour
Has been well and truly hosing down in Ferntree Gully for a good half hour 9 deg 175msl and getting dark hummm love this weather
My spidey sense tells me we got cold snap in May happening.
Also, YouTube cams as first implemented by Thredbo are killing it. Best innovation in cams in a decade.
I equally promoted the Hotham 360 cam on homepage but people don't like it as much as a regular still and abandon the page before it even finishes loading. So I had to switch back.
I've seen snow on the beach in Victoria ... was in Gippsland if i recall correctly.
Stay on topic!
Yeah, the basin cam at Thredno looks a treat today. Great to see some phat phlakes phalling.
You can thank MountainWatch for that spike. The hype was real.

I don't observe DJOTD on that dashboard ???
Nah was down the other coast near the Ottways I'm pretty sure.
Same system when it snowed on the hills of Lorne
Yes there was. At Wonthaggi. We're going back a few years now.
Meanwhile, Im down the coast Westernport bay side of the Peninsula (the nice side) and it is about to hammer down, I can se across to Philip Island from the Kitchen window and it is looking nasty/good.
Nah that was a different system.
This was 2008 if I recall correctly.
Guess that shows whilst not common it does happen seldom
I remember seeing it puke in Orbost as well.. Thats not that high, nor far from the ocean.
Quite the instability on the radar for melbourne
No Macedon to the SE for you guys
Its nice to hear some consistent rain on the roof, feels like it has been forever
Brindys look awesomely black atm
Drizzly and 9c in Canberra. Hoping the rain eases before home time.
On the Barton hwy at the moment and it is hammering down!! I think its set in for the rest of the day.
I knew it was old... didn't realise was that old
Looks like hail bouncing off the ledge of the 6th floor.
Yep, there were pics at the time of snow on the beach and in the dunes at Cape Woolamai.
From a mates FB page. Wonthaggi SLSC
Looking too warm at Victorian resorts now.
Agreed unfortunately. Probably glad there is no precip falling.
May 10 snow is pretty useless (apart from Marketing) IMO. Better give everything a good soak IMO.
Thats quite a flood
And probably hampers the builders.
But I do like to see the snow fall after a good long while.
From the other side and the playground/toilet block area!!! Again from a mates FB page
That slab coming down would have been hectic
That's bloody beautiful. After western parts received good falls yesterday, the parched central parts of the state can hopefully get a good drink today. I'm heading up that way tomorrow so it'll be good to see everything damp for a change.
My leaving for the post office at lunch seems to have precipitated steady rain here in Canberra.
Has that wintry feel to it. Not seeing much evidence of anything sticking around on the P cams.
Home time for me now. Just finished last garden before the beautiful wet stuff started to fall at 8 degrees. Canberra at its May best.
Not for the main range.
You'll probably still get snow there, it will be cold enough.
Snowing here at DHG above1500m
Light, but it’s solid
around 12 august 2005 was snow to sea level around Mornington Peninsular. Deep snow on the main street of sorrento.
Going up top anytime soon?
The sun is coming out
and it looks like you might just be able to do some rockhopping if your brave.
Watch out for captain keen or whatever his name is?
Eeriely no wind, as result of the Northerly flow. Gonna be another story in 3 few hours..
Nah, running out of daylight and DP on the rise. Pea soup is near
As per discussions a few days ago things are too far north for much snow on resorts. Looking good for up high on the Central Tablelands this afternoon. Real fuzzy looking clouds heading over Dubbo at present with short sharp showers. Classic coldies.
Looks to me that above about 1950 ASL it may stick around for a bit if we get a top up tonight. At the high elevations the cover has built a bit over the past several days.
Not a lot happening at the moment save for a few light flurries. Virtually windless. A bit of cloud drifting in back towards PV.
Looking out to Clark
And up towards Snowy River and the range.
A bit of love for dinner plain:
Somebody took a ride up to Seamans
Bendigo official 13.4mm yesterday last night, 3.2 today. I'm only a few Km from the gauge at the airport (new qantas comes in low right over my house) I got 12mm over night and 15mm so far today. Raining off and on all day, just lovely
I observe people be keen in Albert park...
Bucketing down in Melbourne City. Going to make for a fun walk home for those leaving now. This has been the quintessential Melbourne winters day, love it.
Exactly my thoughts when I just popped out of the office to grab something around the corner.
