Big light show now on the border, to south and east of mt beauty. Radar suggests it's running from dinner plain to thredbo and beyond. Clear moonlit night at home, but plenty to watch.
Took this photo yesterday watching the cell near Koo Wee Rup build. At the time of taking this photo there was little breeze, slightly from the E. Then within 2 minutes the machine really kicked in and it was sucking in air, wind picked up to 10kts and sucking directly at the cell. In this photo you can just see the beginnings of moisture coming out of the cloud, within 15 minutes of taking the photo you couldnt see any cloud behind it, the cell was in full swing.
A bit stormy on the ride in to work today. Not sure if I got wetter from the sweat (85% humidity) or the occasional large drop of water.
A few weak lines working through lower central, but it doesn't look to bring much rain or moisture at this stage.
For the record, yesterday mornings LI was recorded at -3.5C, a fair bit below the -7C I was seeing on the progs earlier on. Hopefully when this mornings sounding comes out it will be a better picture.
I was speaking with 2 BOM forecasters yesterday and they explained the reasons why we werent going to see storm activity in the afternoon in Melbourne:
The problem is twofold. (1) we are at the extreme western edge of the moisture and it is mixing out the further west you go and (2) we are behind the upper trough which represents mid level subsidence and westerly steerage. This is why I didn't put storms on most of the metro TAFs - just Moorabbin (but even there I was less than confident). Further east in deeper moisture and in front of the mid level trough should be fun....
That was from Stuart Coombs, a bloke who knows his shit. As you can tell he was working yesterday, it was his forecast, and got it pretty much spot on.
STW up for the NE
Classic band along the Far South Coast just now...
BTW minor technical matter
