It is a beautiful day on the North Coast. A nice day for a drive to the Promised Land
Sun, sun, and more sun in Sydney, which is lovely as the place needs to dry out or a week or so. Off to the beach to check SST's.
Melbourne will exceed its long-term average rainfall for 2010
First time in 14 years apparently.
Very muggy and stormy-feeling in Melbourne today, some storms hanging around but for the most-part they have stayed away from the city and suburbs. Should start attacking the western parts of the city in the next hour or 2.
fairly big downpour/storm just after lunch in ringwood
ACCESSR still liking another 20-30mm for most of Melbourne on Friday night into Sat morning.
Lake Eildon at 66.95%
Will easily crack 67 and probably 68%
Melbourne water storages http://www.melbournewater.com.au/content/water_storages/water_report/zoom_graph.asp
At 51.5% and will pass the 2002 level shortly!
Fantastic - and lots more to come too.
Spare a thought for WA though (particularly the SW).
I haven't heard trappers whinging lately, so it can't be too bad in WA.....
Yep all next week looks good and then another "dump" possible from the 2nd of December.
22mm and counting in Rowville since 9am, they must have had a storm. My other weather station down here in Cranbourne is showing 8mm, so just missing out, but it's raining steadily here now.
Might have to get a server to put my weather station data online and real-time updated.
You could use weather underground?
That's because they are still in denial, living without any water restrictions and using up ground water like there is no tomorrow.
Some emails went around the BoM regarding inflows into the Perth rivers and dams. It's off the chart.... significantly worse than the 2006 figures and unprecedented in the instrumental record.
Gotta keep all those lawns green!
I think most houses in perth the stormwater goes straight into soakwells, recharging aquifers. Problem is, no rain!
Dont worry they have Desal they dont need to worry about water restrictions. That's what Bumbly is telling us here too.
Bath tub in Camp Mulhe full for sure.All firefighting H20 full up now!!Keep raining its good and forest looks happier too!!
Storms forming in central areas of the state, north of the divide.
As long as it doesnt stop now im happy. Lots of rain + growth then no rain = lots of dried out fuel.
Yeh once we dry out it's going to be a bad bad season!!!!
Hopefully we don't dry out though all Summer!
I would think that FR burning probably been very restricted and when it dries out there will be very short window for DSE to go all out to get a little done before it goes very very hot and fuel dries out.And dangerous northerlies prevail.Where did that cake come from!!
Tomorrow is shaping up as quite wet in particular in the afternoon. Doesn't shape as huge, but I still expect 20mm+ of this phase of the system for Melbourne. If we get good TS, we could get double that.
Watch for possible TS warnings this afternoon too.
Wos best place to not get electrocuted during TS.am always wondering if inside car best place or retreating inside a hut?? And been a few people blown up like cricket games and sheltering in rotundas and under trees.may be need rubber suit or gummbys for insulation?? And if new huts(metal)like Michelle and Federation take direct hit what will happen if anything.Cleve Cole dunny could be dangerous as its bit elevated!!
Yes Happy Bday!
I went up to Mt Macedon a few days ago and noticed quite a few largish burn offs towards Ballarat on Mon/Tue
In a car or hut, you should be fine. Definitely not under a tree though.
Or holding a long steel rod!
CC some models are predicting a lot more than 20mm for Melbourne tomorrow, AXS looking closer to 50mm.
Storms in NE, N, NW and on the ranges now, building fast could be an exciting afternoon.
Here in Melbourne it is warm, humid, light wind and feels stormy.
Mmmm, might be an interesting bike ride home. Suddenly dark outside the office here in St Kilda.
Charts are mixed for Melbourne rainfall amounts!
Love the weather outside at the moment, as Verm said, warm, humid and light winds
Lots of storms about and building
yeh, EC has 28mm too.
While I can see possible higher falls, I expect it to be in the lower ranges of expectations. Still ok though.
Almost 50mm at Eildon out of a storm today.
Radar shows a storm recently passed through the city and heading SE.
60mm in 2 hours!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
All of VIC has a Thunderstorm warning basically!
Woooow just experienced some of the heaviest rain here in a long time. Big fat drops mixed with hail. Last time I can remember it this bad was Feb 05!
The Bureau of Meteorology warns that, at 3:20 pm, severe thunderstorms were detected on weather radar near Glen Waverley and Vermont.
These thunderstorms are moving towards the southeast.
They are forecast to affect Croydon, Ringwood and Scoresby by 3:50 pm and Belgrave, Berwick and Narre Warren by 4:20 pm.
Damaging winds, very heavy rainfall, flash flooding and large hailstones are likely.
That thunderstorm developed over Balwyn and moved on down, we got the back side of it for a little before it moved on SE
Yep, very intense - went from sun to downpour in about 5mins.
Look like more possibly to come as well for the northern suburbs.
Crazy storms over Bowral in the Highlands.
Fuse was lit, fuse ran out, now the fun is starting, this will last well after dark im tipping, going to be a good light show tonight.
Hail the size of grapes in Blackburn about 10 mins ago!!
Feel sorry for the cars not undercover though
I'm definitely going to have to pick a time to ride home, riding in a TS doesn't thrill me.
There goes my plans for cutting the grass this weekend.
Bottle of Wine - Check
Balcony view towards the city - Check
- Tell me about it...
All this rain has meant I have been cutting the lawns every damn weekend!!!
BOM have issued flood-watches for several rivers, so clearly they are expecting some action tonight, tomorrow. Possibly flash flooding due to the thunderstorms.
ACCESSR - Going for 30-60mm for most of Vic and Melbourne
Time to drain more from the tanks
Fantastic, im going to mow the lawn right now, get in before it turns to the shizen.
Big thunderstorm in the northern subs, and another one approaching the western subs and they both mean business.
BIG line of storms coming/over Melb
