    Just started spitting out here in lilydale. Very dark to the south, cloud mass looking nice and ominous.

    Was spitting big drops when I took the dog for a lunch walk, half expected to get a drenching, but cleared and the sun came out in Boronia

    Looking for long range 6th feb. Having a shindig in Jindabyne and weather will be important.
    I dont have access to all the charts but from what i can tell light southerly winds maybe a top in the low 20's with some cloud.
    Anyone with longer range models at hand able to concur?
    Wont hold you to it.
    Thanks

    First post - I was lucky enough to go and make a cup of tea just as the storm in Geelong developed yesterday. Our office is on the second floor and the location is elevated, and the kitchen has an uninterrupted view to the west where the storm was developing. I'd never seen the rotation at the base of a storm develop. It was actually quite unnerving to see clouds starting to move in different directions before the rotation became evident.

    The storms were heading generally in a south easterly direction but the radar showed the larger storm decided to go north east toward Avalon airport. Winds were 40 knots+ on the bay, with the storm centred to the west on land.

    Hard to pick. Looks ok on EC, but potentially a little troughy on GFS. Plenty of divergence. As you'd expect 240h out.

    Solid, soaking rain this morning, especially to the East of Melbourne. This should continue for the rest of the day, eventually contracting East. I had 20mm yesterday, and another 20mm today (although it's been really heavy on the radar since I left for work, so probably more) which will unbelievably put my monthly total for Jan above the monthly average for Jan. A week ago I had 4mm in the gauge for the month.

    This kind of weather is always welcome.

    A few days above 35C however, not so much.

    Radar showing that wonderful column of rain sweeping down from the Riverina and moving east across the State. Could see some nice totals through the hills once it hits the higher ground.

    Looks like parts of South Gippsland will do well today too. It was bone dry last time I was out there, so they will get a well needed drink out there.

    Nice and cool in Melbourne this morning, is it autumn already? ;)

    Another line of showers starting to develop north of Melbourne.
    Getting some rain here in St Kilda rd, but not too heavy.

    Radar looking tidy as you can see the rotation of the low as it moves eastwards. Nice big band hitting just south of Adelaide at the moment too.

    It's pretty stationary for the moment, hopefully for the cricket and peoples weekend it picks up and moves off soon.

    A mate in Noojee (Thomson catchment) said the storm that came through yesterday was all time. The hail stripped bark off the mountain ash and his driveway (gravel) is now somewhere in the Latrobe River.

    Heavy rain again for Adelaide.

    Also only around 15 degrees so not like the sucked down tropical moisture we sometimes get here.

    Solid rain driving home, especially through Croydon and Ringwood. Stopped by the time I hit Kew.

    My folks have had 60mm this week and 104mm for January, the most to start a year since 2011. Unusually green around Seymour

This rain band should weaken Sunday afternoon, however thunderstorms are likely to produce locally heavy rainfall again over central and eastern districts on Sunday afternoon.

    10 days ago I had 4mm in the gauge, now i'm over 80mm (average 40mm). Nuts.

    Todays rain is a bit more unpredictable than the past few days, although should the low deepen as predicted, in the right spot, then areas of Gippsland should get even more rain.

    MTD rainfall just cracked 300mm in Penrith. By far the wettest month on record for that AWS (commissioned 1995). Would have similar if not a bit more here in the Lower BM'S.

    Sorry, Month To Date.

    Thought a tornado went through Jindy last night around 10.30ish - head it coming, went from zero to mental in no time. Thunder was continuous for next hour or so, the shockwaves from some shook the cabin!

    Looks like a period of stability in the SE for the next 7 or so days.
    SE QLD looks to get smashed though later in this period.
