Lovely light for a while
It came to fruitation according to Buller's Facebook.
Nice rope funnel cloud on the vid.
Bloody hell. Currently 12 degrees in Geelong with an apparent temp of 9. Time to leave the shed and go inside. Cold.
Arrived home to 10deg and 27mm in the gauge ......mmmmm victorian summer at its best
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!!!
Was sent this from my mate who lives in Terrey Hills. (my guess is he's had them in his freezer overnight and that's why they're so white)
and this is what fell at my place (about 15 minutes down the road)
From the Hotham Facebook page
Perisher cams are worth a look this morning.
Untracked, but for how long?
2-3cm looks about right. EC and GFS did well with this one near-on 10 days out.
No MTB today
Snowed inThredbo village for a short time in the middle of the night, lotsa rain too.
Just blowing and cold now.
and 10mm in the bucket fwiw
Cold in Melbourne this morning.
40mm+ on Mt Dandenong overnight, 20mm+ down on the peninsula. Bring on the end to fire restrictions!
All those playing the game "skis on for as many months of the year in aus" here is the feb opportunity you may not have counted on.
3.5C in Feb? Fresh
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.
A friend told me he put the skis on at Hotham. 5-10cm of snow.
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.
Does that mean you've had an average month then...
Based on my understanding yes, bang on average... Nothing to see here.
Pre-season Mega bonfire?
9 degrees at Narby at 1pm
I think i'm up to 6 piles now, running out of places to build them.
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.
And what is in your rain gauge up that way?
I don't know. Forgot to ask the local cocky when he came in. But we've had some heavy rain
Overnight low of 3c at my machinery shed , high of 15c. I am so liking this "new summer" weather. 7mm of rain overnight.
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.
Really not much of summer down here in Melbourne and in Victoria. Lots of unusual cold.
Last coupla days of Feb shall remind you.
We had another 26mm today...that's over 50mm from this system
I am inclined to think it's Southern origins/feed over some very warm SST regions in the Souther Ocean aided to a very moist system here.
Mind you, the winds were kind enough to skirt Tassie and lessen any impact of shadowing for Vicco...
During weak vortex events anomalies can descend from the upper stratosphere to the surface.
The very cold air within the polar vortex descended down from 10 hPa/mb.
over the past few weeks.
Long live the wandering cold parcels of air.
All but a distant memory by tomorrow I'm betting
Amen to this.
Has been the saviour of several events over the past few Oz , or particularly NSW resort winters .
2.8 min in Canberra this morning. Lowest for Feb on record.
First tracks of Australia's first snowfall in 2017 went a little like this... (not as you had thought).
