    Beautiful sunny day today. Pretty crisp and windy though. Working from home today so looks like a good day to get out for a lunch time walk in the sun.

    The cloud has moved in now, not unexpected, with a chance of some showers tonight.

    Power went out in the neighbourhood, and then back after an hour or so.

    Radar showing some precipitation activity down near the Otways.

    Light rain all the way home. As soon as I parked the bike, the rain got a bit heavier.
    Nuisance value only.

    Gusty winds this morning. Trees remaining upright despite soft soil.
    EC still keen for 7-10mm locally today. Personally can't see it with these winds.

    Typical North Westerly rain band this morning. - As in, CBD and SE really struggle to pick up anything because of the ranges.

    Macedon and surrounds looks to be getting a nice little heavy shower/storm at the moment. Few CG's picked up on the tracker too.

    Macedon force-field in action.
    I looked at the radar and figured I'd get wet today, but the rain was very spasmodic - big drops but not many of them!
    Essentially dry from Richmond to Port Melbourne - looks like the CBD got enough to wet the ground but not much more.

    Next band of showers just moving through the metro area. Might get a little more than this morning.

    Working from home today and have seen the full gamut; wind, more wind, rain, hail, sun, calm and now steady cold rain.

    Wind brought another tree down, thankfully on the other side of my back fence

    Has been fairly steady in Port Melbourne for a bit.
    Radar suggests it will clear off shortly.

    About 6mm since 0900hrs plus 1mm earlier this morning sees us reach the totals EC was mooting.
    Roads awash around Warrandyte with plenty of surface water around the prone areas.
    Will get chilly tonight with a very nice day forecast tomorrow :)

    Am at the airport flying out to Perth this afternoon. Wet drive out but has since cleared. Should be some headwinds flying into the cold front rolling across the bight

    Beautiful day in the Upper Yarra, ended up quite mild. Cooling off now though, should be a spectacular evening once the moon makes an appearance

    Absolute peach of a day today. As much as I love the cold and snow, did get me excited for Spring weather and being outside in the sun more!

    Looks like about 230-3pm on Radar. Second half here at the G could be interesting.

    Roller blading completed this morning....head wind was a bit of a Mother f....k

    Certainly moving with the wind when traveling to the east!

    Rain appears to be not to far away judging by cloud cover and extra sensory perception !

    Starting to rain here now in the strezleckis. Going to turn bitter tonight bom have revised snow level to 400m for Tommoz morning for all of southern vic! The coldest part of this system shows us more in the sweet spot versus the last system so hopefully a little more snow falls along our range
     
  35. Flash flooding maybe under that.

    8.3mm good drop, awaiting the wind shift and hoping the stuff out west holds together. Radar looks a bit better than the actual rain produced due to cold temps. Currently 5.7c here after a pre rain high of 11.8c

    Howling wind out there. Spewing it's a Monday tomorrow so can't chase snow early in the AM close by.

    it's generally too dry I think to see anything much.

    It was cold this morning and a strongish westerly, but quite dry and sunny.

    Yep turned out to be a non-event for Melb this AM.

    Rain was very heavy and windy on the windows last night going to bed around 10-11pm though. Made it easy to fall asleep!

    24hrs rainfall to 0900hrs.
    West & South Gippsland continues their bumper month with several locations eclipsing 40mm.
    Locally 5mm but the wind was the real feature, especially after the band passed.

    And that is why you don't raise Hereford cattle in West/South Gippsland - too green and lush.

    Very windy in Tambo Upper today - and cold. No rain to speak of, just 1.5mm yesterday evening.
