    Just got home to Docklands after walking from the city. Darn cold - the air temp wasn't so bad but the wind off the Yarra was down right evil.

    Heavy showers moving through Melbourne ATM. Windy and cold, feels like mid winter - loving it now I'm home rugged up.

    My AWS crashed from 7.5 to 6.1 as the showers have moved through

    Snow off and on from 1am till 330 or so here. Temp was just over 1 most of the time so fluffy flakes could be seen sitting on surfaces then melting. At times quite heavy and worth sitting up for. No showers here atm, hoping for another go before sunrise perhaps. Current temp 0.5c and becoming breezy

    Must be close to some wintery mix showers around elevated hills of Melbs?!
    Looking at the radar and AWS looks like it maybe possible above 200m

    Big crack of thunder just after 4am. No wintery mix locally but reckon Kangaroo Ground would have got some love.

    Sorry to be a thread hog, lol, bit excited! Rain snow mix atm, washing the joy away though more flakes in it as I type.

    Some photos of my street and front yard after the good fall.

    The radar showing the precip heading more SE flow than the SSW I was expecting. Not good for further precip on the E Ranges. It forecast to go more SW latter, but hoping it turns more SW sooner.

    Bit scary isn’t it ! The roads around black Spurr, macendon, Ballan etc aren’t good in the wet and wind add in snow and it’s a totally different ball game. Really unless you have to travel you’d avoid them at all costs as you don’t know what could happen with this weather

    24hr rainfall to 0900hrs - 64 @ Mt St Leonard which also verifies against the 50cm snow report @ Lake Mountain.

    12mm locally which land the system total to near on 35mm, which I was hoping/wishing for. Milder weather in the forecast, garden/lawn to go coco bananas....

    This system was always going to pose a safety risk to the community. A combination of prolonged wet weather (not amount but duration) coupled with several days of strong winds.

    I hate the term "thoughts/prayers" however our feelings go out to those directly affected by those whom have passed. Also to those "first responders", the Black Spur scene would have been horrific.

    That why Team Bears go a bit proactive around our(your)campsites with the dead trees!
    Another sad tragic death....this one.worse than being in vehicle ...you would think that hearing something you may jump out of the road !

    Cold out here in Caroline Sorings but pretty still.

    We had a light shower at home around 6:30am, fortunately cleared off before I had to head in to work.
    Now a stock standard dull winters day, winds from the NW. Radar shows shower activity over the local ranges, but nothing elsewhere.
