    Hi all. Long time reader, first post.
    I just witnessed very small hail settle on the windscreen as I arrived home. Only for a min or two. Getting cold!

    I like the pool due south of Perth, it's bloody enormous. What is the consensus re; that cold pool interacting with the Indian Ocean moisture available in the upper atmosphere, amplifying the moisture available for this system Thurs-Sat?

    Fall's post and the latest models pooped the party somewhat. Still plenty of potential over the next couple of weeks imo. Lots of weathet about. At the very least it shouldn't be boring.

    9 degrees with spits of rain and windy in Canberra which makes it feel much colder, more like 4-5. Definitely feels like snowy weather just south of here which the cams at Perisher reflect......

    Just had a very brief but heavy shower in Brighton, and the wind picked up. Yarrawonga radar looks tidy, and temps are playing ball.

    Wind has picked up significantly in the past hour also, sky starting to look threatening.
    Going to be an interesting arvo.

    But not Baw Baw. Still above zero, but doesn't seem to be raining. The NNW not helping there (and no moisture either)

    Bawbs always better out of the SW. In fact with some rain shadow I reckon they'd rarely get much out of the NW. Any others able to comment on this?

    And we're still out of the NW.
    Loving the pressures, sub 1000hpa at all the majors. Dropping like a stone in the SW. 993 at Cape Otway.

    So basically it's the low pressure that's giving the lower than anticipated freeze level, so I've been told.
    850hpa charts have progged +1C but due to the low pressure that height is more like 1300m than the 1600m we normally associate with the 850hpa charts.

    How good do the Vic cams look now eh?
    Baw Baw is in rain shadow, so I think that's the major reason it's missing out at the moment - although temps are just on zero.

    Only got to 9 degC here in Bendigo today. These systems in Mid-winter can really surprise given the way they suppress insolation and are colder at lower altitudes than is typically the case.
