    Positioning very kind to resorts so far (as proged)
    Hopefully the intensification results in low pressure and the wrap goes to plan

    I observe that for weekend warriors its been the worst season ever for touring. I've had one weekend all season that was any good.

    Woke up to a gorgeous morning and see Feathers looking very bare. Thought about skiing but just too plain lazy. Hit some golf balls and lost them, how do you lose golf balls on 2 acres in sunshine.
    Clean the pond and thought about a few turns agains- put the boards in the car and now its past midday maybe tomorrow.
    I observe its still a gorgeous day.

    28mm in my gauge so far here in Bendigo over night and today, and just noticed storms and lightning arching up as well. Every creek and waterway I passed today was full.

    Low is stalled. The business-end of this system is still south of SA.
    10-12 hours will see a shift for the alps, including Jindy IMO

    Lotsa rain.

    Lotsa and Lotsa.

    Wonder if we will get any convection behind this rain once it clears.
    Plenty of juice in the atmosphere and the clear air could trigger. Fingers crossed

    about 12C, warmer than yesterday.
    Rain has cleared off from the CBD.
    Radar suggests it will rotate around and give is another go later.
