    We would be writing the season off if it was! :D

    Observe still way too warm for this time of year. Not much happening in Vic yet.

    Just put bins out here in Lysterfield and its a balmy evening. Kind of feels like late March or April this week, definitely going to be a late winter IMHO

    Cold and damp in Canberra - 8.7 now and a max of 14 looks exceedingly optimistic.

    21c progged for Penrith today, but currently only 13c under high cloud. Could jump later once the inversion layer is broken by the NW'ly that should soon develop.

    Pressure dropping at Thredbo. From 1015 to 1012 in the last couple hours. May it plummet like a stone.

    Cold air seems to be still around Adelaide with temps only reaching 12 deg and some good rainfall further north. Does not seem to be moving quickly east. Hopefully mid to late morning it turns white (if not earlier)

    About to cop a bit of a convective looking downpour here in Central Vic. Cold uppers entering the fray I suspect.

    If there is one thing that has characterized the past 2 months here, it's been warm moist in-feeds from the NE colliding with upper cool pools/cutoff lows dumping large amounts of steady rain on us. Not really any polar modified air-mass direct from Antarctica at all.

    Edit - even a bit of lightning and thunder atm :cool:

    I interpret cold air recently passed Hay (NSW). Distinguishable on the satellite pic as the line of storms between Wagga Wagga and Hay.

    Weather is circulating around the low in central Victoria.
    Satellite picture shows plenty of moisture being sucked down from the north, the next key feature to observe will be when the low intensifies in Bass Strait.
