    Nice height gradients crossing pressure gradients. Looks possible that Melbourne may get more precip than BOM has progged IMO.

    Got our selves a nice gentle onshore here in Bondi (+ some sea fog).

    Interesting low level convergence forming off the coast (trough forming perhaps?) looks to be aiding CAPE.

    With a bit of mid-level shear we might see the odd shower or storm pass through if you're on the coast in Sydney IMO.

    Drove out to Myrtleford this afternoon and off to Harrietville tomorrow... everything is a different shade of brown, it sure is strange seeing this part of the world without a nice layer of green. Could really do with some decent rain.

    The good news here is that the strong winds look to be early AM, easing in the arvo (where max temps will be reached).
    Maybe 30-35km/h winds in the arvo IMO

    Queenstown, Otago, NZ. We've got a pretty stiff sou-westerly blowing at the moment, that's expected to die away overnight. Hopefully we'll avoid a frost, the garden is still humming along.

    DAMAGING NORTH TO NORTHWESTERLY WINDS, averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts of 90 to 100 km/h, are expected to develop about elevated parts of the western and central districts during SATURDAY NIGHT, extending to elevated parts in the east early SUNDAY MORNING. About the Alpine region, winds are expected to average 70 to 80 km/h with peak gusts of 110 to 120 km/h during SUNDAY MORNING.

    DAMAGING WESTERLY WINDS, averaging 60 to 70 km/h with peak gusts of 90 to 100 km/h, are expected to develop throughout western and central parts of the warning area during Sunday morning following the passage of the cold front, reaching eastern parts from late morning. Peak gusts to 110 km/h are possible about the exposed southern coastal fringe.

    We had light rain in Harrietville last night from about 11:30. Not sure how long it fell for as I was asleep after midnight but it was pretty consistent. Wasn't expecting that last night

    Not good at all regarding severe weathe r warning for wind so strong!!
    It's a real worry for these already going
    Fires and any that do start!
    Hopefully the wind out Gippsland way isn't up to what they forecast.

    Yeah good so far Derwent, but it hasn't been hit with any serious wind yet, we've only had a moderate northerly all day.
    I think the test will be overnight out this way and once those really strong winds hit the fire hopefully it dosent take off?

    Quite breezy in inner Melbourne at the moment.

    I spent the week up at Lake Eildon, stunning warm days with nights cool enough to sleep in my tent, couldn't have asked for better weather.

    Not so into it, but the 00z run wasn't all that keen on it. Worth keeping an eye on it, for now. But wow it's been active this summer.

    Been non stop rain and wind since early in the morning. Rain has moved east and its now looking clear in NW Tas, but I think there is going to be part 2, judging by the new cloud build up to the west.
