    Winds dropping off as the rain moves through Melbourne. I reckon it will clear before midnight.
    Coming up to 3mm in my gauge.

    Thanks :)

    Did you get any lightning / thunder out your way? Beginning to think it was a dream on my part. **Edit. No sooner had I posted that another big flash and clap of thunder came through.

    Rainfall totals peaked along the SW coast with a number of locations registering 30mm+.
    8mm locally with no thunder/hail but a shedload of wind.
    Yet to roam the property but all appears upright.

    Still too westerly ATM for any decent accumulation around central Vicco. Again the SW hog the decents falls.
    Cape Otway adds another 30mm+, bringing the "event" total above 60mm.
    SWW for damaging winds only covering the higher altitudes (currently). BoM should revise this at the 1030hrs update to cover a larger part of the state. Any storm that fires mid/late arvo will produce very strong squalls/gusts.

    Dry and mild at home when I left to for work.
    Turned to light rain by East Hawthorn and rained all the way to Port Melbourne. Not really damp enough to break out the wet weather kit for the ride though.
    It's a little heavier now, but still very mild.

    Flood watch up.

    Initial Flood Watch for North East Victoria and Upper Yarra Catchments
    Issued at 11:26 am EST on Friday 12 July 2019

    Flood Watch Number: 1

    Minor flooding may develop across the North East and Upper Yarra catchments from early Saturday morning.

    A cold front embedded in a strong westerly airflow will pass across Victoria today.

    Catchments in the flood watch area are wet following recent rainfall.

    Widespread rainfall totals of 20 to 50 mm are forecast for the remainder of Friday across the North East and Upper Yarra catchments. Isolated higher totals are possible on the ranges. Rain will fall as snow above 1500 metres, lowering to 600 metres overnight.

    With the forecast rainfall, river rises are expected during Friday and minor flooding may develop across the flood watch area from early Saturday morning.

    Catchments likely to be affected include:

    Yarra River to Coldstream
    Upper Murray and Mitta Mitta Rivers
    Kiewa River
    Ovens and King Rivers
    Goulburn River upstream of Lake Eildon
    Goulburn River Eildon to Seymour

    Goulburn River U/S of Lake Eildon is soooooo needed as GM-Water are flushing upward of 6,000ML/day D/S of Eildon.
    Sitting under 36%, here's hoping that the Lake gets about 50% by Cup Weekend.

    Otherwise, well, lets not talk about it.....

    Wild and woolly this morning in Melbourne. Strong westerly winds, made the ride back up the bay a pretty fair slog
    4.5mm rain for the 24 hours in my system.

    Looks like there will be a bit of a "wintery mix" tomorrow. Still fairly breezy but you'll find some snow.

    Just got caught in a huge thunder/hailstorm on the Monash from East Malvern all the way through to Mulgrave. Was quite vicious. Car temp dropped from 14° to 3° in about 5 mins. Took a sneaky pic but couldn't capture all the hail on the road.

    That is a MASSIVE drop in temp, amazing.

    We had a big squally shower push through the city about an hour ago, and it was bitter outside in the wind.

    I note that the maximum for Melbourne today has been revised down to 11c. That said, we surpassed it and got to 11.9

    Up until this morning the Upper Yarra hadn't seen much activity, however it's been wet and cold today. Donna Buang has been shrouded most of the day so can't see any white stuff. Nice bit of sun now....

    Mizzly in Melbourne too. Enough to make the bike ride less pleasant that it usually is.
    Winds pushing in from the north still, felt colder than it really was.
