    CAPE ~1600 really isnt that much, but the 2500 is getting up there. I'm waiting for this mornings sounding to come out to see actually how much energy is available, but I have a feeling it'll be more to the East of Melbourne/central areas. Having a look at the sat pic though, it looks a bit weird.

    STW starting early today.

    I have my doubts it will really hit Melbourne, it might just struggle to make it far enough south.

    Agree also.

    To much over-cast and doesn't have "that feel".
    Also happy to be proven wrong.

    Just as we say that, WZ radar suggesting there is a bit of something building around Ballarat with a few flangs that is heading SE towards Melbourne. Might be interesting to use this to see if Mt Macedon will spoil the party as usual from suburban Melbs later today.

    We're getting a bit of W/SW here in the city, unless that dies off, I think it will mostly miss us.

    Plenty of CAPE there and not much effort required to make it happen.

    Dat sheer around Central Vic and the NSW/VIC border. Should be some decent cells kick off east of Wagga once the trough moves through. 2pm? 3pm?

    Just nicked down to grab a coffee

    the cell to the north of me here as on the STW is looking nice and large. Would think it'll drop its bundle once it hits the hills above the valley.

    There's some good cumulonimbus developing out to the east, and what appears to be another cell to the south of me here.

    Nice and warm out there too.

    The TTS rain gauge at 199mm (inc since 9am) has blasted through the Nov mean of 146mm - with 331mm the highest Nov in 2011. Highest monthly ever recorded for TTS was March 2012 at 483mm.

    PV is showing a little less in the gauge but has also bested (inc since 9am) the monthly mean of 138mm. According to BOM 292mm was the highest PV Nov monthly in 1994 - and the overall highest monthly was not in the La Nina of early 2012 - but 1981 with 699mm in August!

    Looking just a bit toasty for Vic and SA this week. Mildura might get to 43 degC on Thursday according to the ensemble forecast. Much milder along the coast though.

    Looks a bit more friendly in the south on today's runs.
    No joy for NSW coastal though.

    Illawarra having a rare few days of summer. All good until Friday. Then back to the usual wash out by the weekend. El Nino is peaking - maybe one more wind burst depending on that little tropical depression off the Philippines. At least the oceans hot spot of the SE is hanging in there. Must be 3+ years since first it appeared and stayed put.
