    I cleaned some of our gutters before yesterdays rain and was amazed at the amount of red mud in them; a good 5-10mm deep.

    Yeah I did the same and there was a heap (along with the usual leaves etc).

    which is why I'm not keen on gutter guards; they won't stop the mud from making its way into gutters and turning a big job into a mammoth task

    I just run some cheap plastic gutter guard over the downpipe inlet and about a foot either way (all one piece) to stop the leaves going in there and blocking the whole thing up (as my water just drains out to either a pit or the garden so good chance of blocking). I can take out the gutter guard and clean it off when I clean the gutters and it seems to work fine. I think you can get some high pressure water or air to blast the pipes if it gets too bad, but I dont want to get to that stage.

    IMO, with this rainfall and the cooler conditions now starting to settle in, the worst of our bushfire threat is over for this season.

    Visible true colour pic showing the rain shadowing effect from TAS perfectly at the moment.

    @Sandy is this the very beginnings of lake effect in this sat pic:
    https://www.weatherzone.com.au/satellite/vic/visible-true-colour

    I'm looking just above the gap of no clouds off the NW tip of TAS, just before I guess Phillip Island and Westernport. It looks to me a very small window of lake effect cloud just beginning to build, but not having enough chance to pick up enough moisture to rain out before it hits land.

    I didn't want to jinx myself but thought the same in late Jan when we locally had 2.5x the average Jan rainfall...and spread over the entire month rather than all in one hit.

    I agree.
    Nice looking long wave swipe through Tas/Southern Vic that puts an Autumnal-feel in the air next week.
    Long Range, but there is agreement.

    Today certainly has feel a touch like autumn in Melbourne. Laying in bed listening to the wind with a blanket over the bed is quite the novelty. Of late it would be the aircon compressor that I'd be falling asleep to the sound of...

    That's the downstream-effects of a nice little polar injection over Melbs last night, albeit 5km above you.

    Looks like up and down pattern is going to hold for the next 10 days, with another rain event:

    Yes, feels very much like autumn has clicked in early and isn't going to let go now.
    Cool and a little damp this morning, autumn riding kit on.

    Sorry Sandy, I missed it and now it's gone. I dont think i'll find it historically, but next time I see it i'll take a screenshot for you.

    At 16c, will it be the coldest Feb 29th for Melbs in history??

    Anywho, keen to see what happens with this tropical low/TC that is likely to stall through the NT, thus flushing out most of the heat.
    We (Viccos) may not be the direct beneficiaries of this system, but it will result in a cooler run into the March long weekend.

    I reckon it might trough up and link with a front to give us another rain event. But it has to actual form in the gulf first.

    Poured rain in Canterbury about 5am.
    Rained again about 2m after I started to ride to work and lasted all the way to Burnley. The city was pretty dry though.

    Lovely in the city too. A cool 12 on my balcony while having breakfast at 7:30 sitting in the sunshine. Hopefully a sign of a slow slide into winter

    Another beautiful day.
    Quite warm. Honestly I don’t mind some warmth.


    Rain doesn’t look very consequential. But it’s there nonetheless.
    Cold will be back on Wednesday.

    A few cells passing south south east of us through pakenham, kooweerup, korumburra. No storm activity in them at the moment. Look very ominous from afar as they pass by.

    This is a pleasant surprise indeed.
    LI is -2.7 per the latest Melbourne skew-t. It's workable.
