That's a cat 2 cyclone at the Prom
These are gust records, not sustained (you'd require 10 minute sustained for TCs)
Bloody freezing this weekend. Was super chilly sitting at the MCG today. Made the call to put thermals on under the jeans and didn't regret it.
Some "light" showers on radar pushed through throughout the game but today was that type of light but dense rain that really soaks you along with that bone chilling wind.
Happy to be back home with the heater on!
Still a pretty brisk breeze
Still hooking in @ Willson's Prom, taking out the windiest station in Aus ATM.
...not to mention that wind chill.
Miserable all night, starting to dry off now.
Light drizzle for the ride in, wet roads and crazy (back to school) drivers, a great mixture!
5.5mm for the 24 hours, it seemed like a whole lot more.

Works nice on mobile (of course! )
Drizzle has moved in again here in Canterbury. Pretty useless to everyone.
Mild too, 12 in the city
Still drizzly this morning, not overly cold though.
Looks like this rubbish hangs in there until Friday morning.
Latest SWW for tomorrow.
Also good to see the Upper Yarra catchments getting a reasonable (and overdue) flush (read Minor Flood Warning for the Yarra.
Looking forward to a couple of mild and dry days to get things done outside, and then look towards a potential low level snow day next Wednesday (24/7).
More annoying drizzle in Melbourne rolling in. Cool day however mild now, 13 in the city.
I see a couple of 16 - 18c days in the long range forecast for the city... Disliking that prospect
Severe Weather Warning for DAMAGING WINDS
For people in parts of Central, East Gippsland, South West, North East and West and South Gippsland Forecast Districts.
Issued at 4:16 am Wednesday, 17 July 2019.
Squally winds developing Wednesday afternoon/evening.
A cold front will move rapidly across Bass Strait Wednesday afternoon and evening.
DAMAGING WINDS, averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts of 90 to 100 km/h are possible around coastal parts of Victoria Wednesday afternoon and evening most likely associated with the passage of the cold front. Winds of similar magnitudes are also likely to develop over Alpine areas (above 1200 metres) of eastern Victoria during Wednesday afternoon.
Winds are expected to ease from the west late afternoon and will ease throughout the threat area by midnight.
Locations which may be affected include Warrnambool, Portland, Wonthaggi, Morwell, Traralgon and Sale.
It's got miserable outside; light rain and generally unappetizing here in Port Melbourne.
I can't remember such an extended period of miserable rainy/drizzly weather in Melbourne (even in Winter) for a while.
Usually we get a high pressure system come in after a front to bring the sun back out and warm up a few degrees before the next front.
Don't get me wrong, I love what it brings for temperature and snow though!
Next band of rain on it's way.
Early evening I guess?
Beat me to it! Looks like it will come in right on metro peak hour.
Should hit the CBD in the next 10-20m.
I might delay my ride home for a bit, looks like it mostly clears off pretty quickly.
Just out of curiosity Claude, how long (mins and km's) is your ride home?
Well that Front was only a sprinkle here in Melbourne, is there any follow up rain tonight?
40m, there abouts (18km)
Isolated showers clearing. So not much.
Next rain early Friday AM
That band looked great as it passed the Otways but just ran out of juice at it passed the heads.
Showers that developed earlier this afternoon delivered a better result.
Cheers. That puts it into perspective of how inclement weather would be an issue on the ride home.
Clear and mild this morning here in Melbourne. Moderate winds from the NW.
TBH it hasn't really been cold this winter here in Melbourne. Maybe 2 frosty mornings that I can remember?
I got away with my lighter "warm" riding kit so far, the real warm clothes haven't left the rack yet.
First time I've seen the sun out in the CBD for I think at least 10 days (could be wrong) but I really can't remember. Shows how long it's been!
Agree, this winter in the city has felt warmer than usual, both days and nights. Only had my big jacket out a few times this season and can only remember 2 or 3 low single digit nights
Very nice to see the sun shining, allows a few things to get done outside.
Rainfall chart for the past week. East Gippsland still waiting for their winter ECL to get those rivers flushing.
Some showers moving through from the west. Perhaps an hour 2 away from Melbourne.
Been waiting 3 years for a decent ECL.
A wet n windy n miserable-sounding night in SE Melb - had quite a few lately but not really that cold except for the Sat arvo front. And that soon warmed up.
A strange winter. If the highs move north by just 5 degrees I reckon we'd be sweet. <SIGH>
An ABC article today on this. Looks nice and green driving through Gippsland at the moment, but soil very dry below the surface. Need a couple of big rain events to change that, with follow up, but looks like another crap spring is on the cards.
Meanwhile, looks like we're in for yet another pleasant day. Mostly clear skies and light winds at this point.
Actually a really nice morning today. Roads were wet, but the sun was out and light winds. A tad cooler than the rest of the week, but hardly cold.
@Big_Red_60 - a trip down memory lane. Tambo River in flood @ Bruthen - 5 June 2012
Very mild in Melbourne today, only requiring a light jumper and shirt. Doesn't feel like the middle of July - more like September.
Lovely day in our area in East Gippsland. T-shirt weather. I let the fires go out and probably won't re-light them until after dinner. Forecast for clear skies tonight - perfect beer drinking weather around the fire pit!
Far too many 15-18s this winter in Melbourne. Rarely have max temps been close to the long term average.
Amazing we have the cover we've got!!
Feels like a pleasant spring day in the making today. Snow Corning up yet?
Very mild this morning.
Yes nice sun, Very breezy though in Melbourne this morning, I'd say 35-40 km/h gusts, 15-20 average.
Radio stated 15c at ~ 1pm. Early spring?
High cloud was moving very quickly - almost giving the appearance of an approaching front but my home barometer not falling.
Better than wind, cloud & drizzle of late. For southerners!!
Went up to Mt Macedon today for a hike. Arrived to foggy low vis and very windy. Cold temps. By the time we'd finished the sun was just coming through and we could see the view.
Very mild night in Melbourne, still 14c in the city at 9:50pm...
Feels like spring.
So I observe a very mild evening here. Walking home from the Seaford Hotel,
Wind really picking up now, by far the strongest northerlies we've had in some time.
Still blowing pretty hard this morning. Radar doesn't have much rain in it.
It's turned in to a gorgeous spring day. There was no rain at all this morning, and the winds has died right off.
Oh the irony of saying spring in the middle of winter.
I was out in the city this Arvo, all I needed was a light jumper and jeans. Beautiful day, in the sun even more so...
Tee-shirt weather in the back yard.
