    might as well get this going.
    Forecast of showers in the morning here in Melbourne seem off the mark. Quite dry and nothing on the radar for all of Victoria.

    Yep looking out over the bay there is nothing but some haze and dull skies.

    Flying out to Canberra tonight, hopefully it will be a bit more exciting up there... at least the nights will be subzero

    Am at Buller with my 4 year old daughter cutting a few laps on Bourke St. Beautiful clear skies this morning. Clouded over and feels like it's cooling off a bit now. Virtually no wind at the moment.

    Interestingly not much showing up on the radar but somehow Mount William has picked up 6mm in the last couple of hours.
    EC & GFS actually didn't have much for Mt William progged at all - just a trace. Doesn't look like bad data as other nearby stations are picking up some as well. Bit odd.

    A pathetic attempt at a shower in Adelaide. Still over 15deg, better be a lot of south in that change.

    Adelaide is not really considered an indicator for this system TBH. Anything significant will be inbound from the SW tonight, then due from the South by tomorrow AM.

    Good rain in se melb. More than I expected. National radar perhaps showing more potential for resorts than thought too

    Yep... Adelaide can't be considered an indicator of the system because if it is there is no system....;)

    Moisture band to the SW of Melbourne is falling apart after making landfall. Doesn't look like it'll have much legs by the time it hits the GDR, IMO.

    Yarrawonga blob looks like it may be very slightly intensifying. Perhaps a few cm in it imo.

    Several heavy showers passing through SE Melb - it also feels a bit cooler than 2-3 hours ago.

    Moisture is making a beeline northeast towards Baw Baw.

    Obs a dusting-1cm on Buller and Perisher cams. Looks like maybe a couple more cm left in it with the showers evident on the radar.
