Mt Buller 1.5C and 3.4mm just registered in the AWS in the last half hour.

GFS maps the uppers at 4pm 4C/-7C/-22C. I am thinking sleet up top.:)
It came to fruitation according to Buller's Facebook.

Negative temps at all the Victorian resorts. Snowing at Falls and Baw Baw. Has snowed in Tasmania and at the Victorian resorts. And by some reports I have heard, there has been some proper falls, up to 10cm. Usually we see these events in May, not February.

Season 2017 starts here!!! :emoji_snowflake:

Going for an overnight low of 11c here in Penrith. Noice.

It also means that we could conceivably record the highest (also an all time record) and lowest Feb temps on record in the same month. That would surely be a significant outlier when it comes to temp records.

About 17.5 deg in Melb max of 20degC expected.sure had some rain over last 24hrs.
Bears poking noses outside now about to finish table 19...
Very good time for rain around Melb to knock down the fire season..not sure how much rain received in Wang/Bright areas but this is helping to keep the CFA out of their trucks which is a good thing...

Who's keeping track of the no of total fire ban days and those with catastrophic fire warnings....fortunately not too many prolonged unbroken spells of 40degC.

BOM obs show Wangaratta has had stuff all rain :( from this system..like 2.5mm.
So we stand corrected with our over enthusiastic response....don't stand those fire towers down just yet....the NE still remains dry obviously...

Falls Ck :)notched up only about 8mm.with this system to date....white stuff may be some what misleading when considering fuel moisture in surrounding forest areas...and Benalla seemed to have scored about 4mm. o_O

Does that mean you've had an average month then...

Mate i'm not dragging trees across to my neighbours, it's hard enough work dragging them to the piles we have at the moment. I was so tempted to let a few go yesterday, there were enough people running wood fires (myself included) that no one would have noticed.

As far SE Aus & Tas go; models are going for a solid ridging trend over the next couple of weeks for Southern States, then back into some good frontal systems though mid-march, I think. The polar vortex remains weak into the end of Feb so I do like the nodal movement around the caps, in theory meaning more frontal action once we see the ridging break down.

Outside of some heating on the 28th through SA/VIC, Summer's over IMO.
