    Yup. Has dropped in town from 22 at 11am down to under 14 in the space of 2.5 hours. Pressure at 995.
    Fingers crossed for some heavy showers later with the wraparound. Adelaide copping it right now according to the radar.

    Okay so we went from blown over wheelie bins (serious weather for Adelaide) to OMG!!! just lost the roof of my shed. Was in there wiring up the sides which had begun to come loose in the wind, just got the first cable secured when the roof came off...oh well I guess it can wait till tomorrow to sort out now.

    Yeah sun on the roof here which will warm me up a little. Was very dim in here this morning, we have good lighting but the natural light really adds to it with our big skylights.

    Apologies for the large file. But just has to be seen in all its glory.

    That fast moving delta formation in front of the low. Never seen anything like it.

    Amazing stuff.

    Showers starting to fill in to the West of Melbourne via metro radar.

    Claude, you might get a wet ass after all.

    Window observation.... Clouds getting darker and wind picking up again.

    Some activity to the NW, but can't see much more than a shower or two for a while. I expect it will redevelop more seriously after 8pm.

    I was just outside. I dont know how to explain it, but you can 'feel' that the pressure is low. The air just seems to feel that little bit heavier, I think that's the right word.

    I'm gonna book you in for a meeting 6-7 at work so you have no choice but to take it on the ride home.

    It's still a lot more miserable to ride in the wet than the dry, gear or no gear.

    Actually I don't mind it. Although those tram tracks in the wet are deadly.

    MTB tracks are just junk. Hose yourself off afterwards.

    Radar looks so awesome right now watching that huge band that smashed through Victoria now sweeping down and hitting NW Tassie. They'll get bulk rain down there on the West Coast. And from all reports, they need a drink down that way.

    Just got back from a little sight seeing. Certainly a bit of fun going on with people getting out on the boards for a stormy surf at West and Glenelg. Saw a couple of waves break green over the end of the jetty and many more hitting the base of the jetty from underneath. Still an hour to go till tide reaches it peak so it'll be interesting to see how far it progress. I'll duck back out when the phone recharges.

    Wind from the north still pretty hefty.
