It's summer. That is all.
Wednesday still appears on track.
Forecast to hit a maximum of 39 here in Brisbane tomorrow. Thank God I have AC.
You should ask Smitty if he has AC.
how thunderstormy in Vic NE friday-saturday do you reckon claude?
got a festival on, trying to work out which 3 of my 5 tents i take......
Should be right mr, with the wind picking up Saturday ahead of a change.
Looks like a little bit snow on the ground according to Mt Baw Baw's snow cams...
No surprises, but it's stinking hot in Noosa today.
Currently just shy of 37C outside.
Tas has snow forecast to 700 metres. Many obs in single digits down there.
The weather gods have gone crazy, with last week's record-breaking heat followed by snowfalls today on the Victorian Alps.
There was a light dusting of snow on the mountains Monday night as temperatures plunged below zero. Heavier falls are expected Tuesday night. Mt Baw Baw could get up to 20 centimetres of snow.
"Overnight not a huge amount of snow has fallen â€“ it's just a dusting," said Bureau of Meteorology duty forecaster Michael Efron.
"But overnight tonight the cold front will be a fair bit stronger. Baw Baw could get 10 to 20cms ... because it's further south. There'll be not so much snow further north, probably 5 or 10cms.
"It's quite a decent fall for this time of year."
Mt Hotham reached minus 1.5 degrees overnight, Mt Buller minus 1.2 and Mt Baw Baw minus 1.1 and further sub-zero temperatures are expected Tuesday night.
Melbourne's overnight low was 12 and today's top is expected to be 18. The average December high and low for Melbourne is 24.2 and 12.9 degrees respectively.
Mr Efron said summer snow fell on average every couple of years, most recently on January 11 when it snowed in Mt Buller.
"It's not uncommon. We can get snow any time of year in Victoria. The waters to the south of the continent are still pretty cold. All you need is a front to come up from a fair way south and you can get snow."
Melbourne's high temperatures on Wednesday and Thursday are forecast to be 19 and 23, with the heat returning on Friday with 31.
What a nice birthday present!
The best present indeed.
Up to 20cm in Baw Baw? - Amazing.
Maybe some of the central western peaks in Tas (eg Mt Rufus) may have seen heavy falls too.
Upstairs the AC is struggling, down here it is nice and cool....
Currently 37.5 at Archerfield, it is a real dry hot wind coming in from the west. Reminds me of northerlies in Melbourne.
Not too humid then?
Nup, pretty dry at the moment... 17%
Well temps are dropping, still getting dry westerlies, but maximum seems to have been a bit lower than forecast.
No aircon. 8pm. 31C. get out.
That's almost as bad as a hot night in Melbourne...
I am at. Coolangatta. Can't believe how soft they are up here. Maximum of 38 with bugger all humidity and they were talking heatwave. flamboyant_expletive me. Just a typical summer day anywhere west of the range.
Happy birthday, Stephen Sorry I missed it.
What a great day..... a little horizontal rain every now and then and memories of winter came flooding back. Looking forward to next winter already.
Yeh but it's unusual to have low humidity around here.
I was more comfortable today in 38C and low humidity, than the 32C with 85% humidity we had the other day.
Aircon in the living areas, aircon in the bedroom. All good.
That is OK teckel!
Vic BOM have issued a severe weather warning for tomorrow.
Gale warnings for Westernport and PPB tomorrow. No fishing.
Not another hot day. Bom is predicting 34c...
and 37c for Melbourne.
Total Fire Ban for Wimmera, Mallee, North Central and Northern Country fire districts in Vic tomorrow. That includes where you are snow777
We already appear to be having a larger number of hot days than in the past few years. With rainfall below average for spring across much of Victoria, it's not looking too good for the fire season. At least water storages are looking pretty full across the state.
Was very hot yesterday - and windy, we are starting to prepare for a bad fire season.
At the moment the paddock to the north of us (not ours) is covered with long dry grass! I'm hoping that the owner will mow it!
Appears to be some solid rain on the horizon for next weekend. Timing and placement of the system vary between models, but could be a good 15-20mm across much of Vic.
Looks good on GFS.
EC shows the moisture being drawn down from the north.
Looks pretty unsettled on Saturday out in the west.
This trough has looked like setting up for a few days now. Looks pretty locked in at this stage.
GFS has melbourne with 50mm or so out of this; EC still more conservative with 20mm+
00z GFS run "all-in"
Just above the yearly average here for rainfall, 840mm. Last year was 931mm at this time.
Any chance of a storm?
Is it a farm? They may be preparing it for hay making, or be planning to put stock on it? Or, you may be able to complain to council so they make the owners clear it.
It is a farm, don't think they will make hay with it 'cos' it has blackberries on it. It has some stock on it at the moment but not much.
That is like tropical areas CAPE. I cant wait to see the mornings sounding if that comes off. Going on those charts the thompson and nearby dams are in with the possibility of serious deluges if a storm lands on it. Flash flooding could be a big issue too.
Yeah Nah is onboard http://www.yr.no/place/Australia/Victoria/Melbourne/long.html
56mm for Melbourne on Saturday.....
Can you post a link to the storm cast chart cc?
