    Raining now in Brighton. Judging by the radar, it'll move through rather quickly.

    Looks like moderate - heavy r*** for the alps as temps over the weekend look a bit too high

    wont get much if any white stuff.
    Leave that for next week.

    Is cold outside though, the wind has some bite, but just not quite cold enough.
    Last 2 days have been beautiful clear still winter days. Now time for some weather.

    We had 4mm overnight at our place. Surprised it was that much TBH
    Drizzly stuff since 9am. Just enough to get everything wet.

    Very low cloud level in Melbourne. Can't see the top of the cranes working across the road on some construction sites. Damp as all get out.

    Still five days shy of the first "seasonally correct" day of winter, (June 22nd), so there really can't be too much to hope for in anything this early. But, we take we can get!

    Not that they would be working today, would have walked off at the very first sight of rain.

    I'd be upset if there was something to lose but we are looking at a bit of man made only. A widespread 40cm+ at the end of it all will more than compensate for the minimal loses.

    And i'm too busy this week to make it down so quite happy conditions are no good. Sorry normo et.al.

    Rain just got decent again here. I think the rivers may start to flow soon. Although most major dams are so empty it would have to rain lots before anything overflows.
