    Temps are dropping in Western Vic and the mountains seem to be holding their own.

    Sat pic is nice.
    Wind is picking up and has a cold vibe.

    Winter has arrived much to the delight of some.

    Thought it was a bit chilly while collecting firewood this morning. Not that I'm expecting snow at Lofty from this system at all but if the temp drop with the SW swing is good enough I might just head up there for a sit outside in the chill with my thermos.

    Mt Gambier is 10 c. Which suggest prefrontal could be snow.

    Good point and that's a direct northerly wind, not even a westerly tinge yet.

    Looks to be around the border with Portland dropping a couple of degrees in the last few hours. I think we will see Mt William drop soon as it is just getting some moisture now. Temps look better than I expected so bring it on!

    Good idea - I need to staple some sort of fabric hem around the desk so the warmth doesn't come out the back/sides.

    It's only the opening event - I expect it will get rather wet later this evening.

    Its looking pretty dark to the south and west of my place and wind began to get quite gusty but not more rain in the last two hours. There is some interesting looking stuff developing on radar about an hour off.

    First bit of light rain just started at Thomastown.
    Northerly wind and temp at a cool 13c.

    Pretty wet down Ocean Grove this arvo for wander on the beach, heavy down-pours all the way to foot of Dandenongs. Buddy in Adelaide said it was super chilly and wet today, winter is arriving.
    Charts look real nice IMO, agree with all here, unstable, embedded, sheer and complex little cutoff with cold pool and ok moisture. Bring on ground cooling event #1.... All seasons start with a first sprinkle, lets hope the guns can blast and get a base happening early next week when the high ridges in.
    Go Olympic year season, go! ;)

    Winter shades of grey...

    Kinda wet and gloomy, just how we like it :thumbs:

    Passive cellar temp has dropped considerably in last few days
    Every year this coincides with the first decent snow, usually a week or so before
    Hope this year reinforces the trend!
