    Verm, given the drought has broken, I'd say we'll be OK in terms of wetness. Let's just hope it's cold as well. We often seem to follow the NH in terms of winters (or is it that they follow us). (Not thinking straight today - first day of a really heavy cold) I'm certainly wanting a very cold winter.

    Has anyone has noticed the cold fronts pushing past way under Aus, over the last few weeks. Good sign IMO.

    They've been pushing past way under Australia all summer. Nothing has changed.

    That's what I thought, I'm trying to remember the last real front that we've got through Melbourne - it was a long time ago.

    Re: SE AUS Summer Weather: Heatwaves & Storms thread

    Yeah im thinking the same. This winter wet and warm with some gluggy big falls mixed in. 2005 but more moisture. Next winter could be the good one.

    Re: SE AUS Summer Weather: Heatwaves & Storms thread

    It feels a little unstable at the moment. I wouldn't be surprised if there's the odd rumble this afternoon.
    Mind you - this morning's bike ride felt very autumnal.
    Thursday looks like a cold and possibly wet day.

    EC seems to have been spot on the money with the overnight rainfall.
    We've had 7.5mm so far.

    +2 I would prefer 20-22C though and a light wind with breaking cloud.

    Re: SE AUS Summer Weather: Heatwaves & Storms thread

    Weird clump of moisture drifting in from the west, this dumped close to 50mm over the Grampians last night as a storm. Might see a few mm out of this before a band of showers tonight.
