    Yep. Once ever we sat in the sun in RL.
    Great seats, but the heat was unbearable.
    Save the inner ring for the night matches, but grab the shade during the day.

    Couple of stinkers to start the week, but it will get progressively more unsettled as the week goes on. EC suggesting late Thursday through Friday being wet. I'm not hanging my hat on that yet, those troughy systems are so hard to pick on exactly where gets the drenching.

    Not such thing as "mini" in weather. Either it is it isn't.
    "Mini tornado" is one of my pet peeves.

    Mini rain (pornstar from Arkansas)?

    SW hitting Laverton here in Melbourne just now.
    Hopefully I'll get the cool wind assist for the ride home.

    Was a nice evening and night last night, despite a fair bit of smoke coming up my way from Crib Point.

    Looks like we'll have a fight on today between the seabreeze and the NW. Personally I hope the lighter NW wins so I can go out for a fish after work. It can be cooler and stormy another day.

    Could be a weird day down here in Melbourne, with maximums between the North and South up to 10C apart, see below, taken from #pakenhamweather:

    Shallow morning fog/mist patches, mostly about the open fields and local valleys and patchy low cloud clearing to a mostly sunny day with patchy high-level cloud. Mid- to high-level cloud increasing during the afternoon and evening and becoming mostly cloudy overnight. Elevated showers possible from early tomorrow morning. Winds initially light, tending south to southwesterly 15 to 20 km/h with the afternoon seabreeze, before becoming southeasterly 10 to 15 km/h in the late afternoon and evening before returning light later in the evening.
    There is the potential of north to northwesterly winds developing this morning which, if eventuates will lead to higher than forecast temperatures. It will be an "arm wrestle" between the north to northwesterly and competing south to southwesterly seabreeze today, the winner will ultimately dictate the temperature in Pakenham today. Forecast Max: 32° but could reach mid-30s if the northerly wind prevails. Feel Like: 29°.
    These are the nuances of forecasting, where a small change can lead to a significant difference.

    Revised forecast of only 32C for Melbourne. Sports reports on news bulletins will still refer to "sweltering conditions" at Melbourne Park.

    Only 26 now, but plenty humid (and felt like it when I was in town earlier). WSW keeping things milder.
    Has made it to 34 out here at work with drier air.

    Topped out at 30C in town.
    Made it to 37C out in the outer East, 35C leaving work. Feels better than the humidity earlier. Dry heat :)

    Looks like some rain heading in from the west. Hopefully that will settle down the fire situation.

    Light rain this morning here in Melbourne.
    The kind that you can go for a ride for hour or so and not really get very wet.

    Reckon it could be one of those days here where it's cool and damp in the morning, only to suddenly warm up in the afternoon and get real sticky.

    Looks like it could be a humid couple of days, and the BOM's longer term forecast isn't showing any stiflingly hot days on the horizon for the Open.

    Hottest "summer" day in three years here at Kiama - finally topped 35C - but already back down to 27 with a pick up of the onshore breeze. Might reheat this afternoon. This cloud is going to make for another hot night with temps over 20 and more all night.

    Yep same here Ulladulla .
    backyard (beachside) says 33 , wz / aws says 27.
    so the 35 wz /aws topped before would be closer to 40.

    Yeah came thru later this arv. Nice.
    Still warm but not so bad as mid-day.
    I'm on North side of the headlands & the Aws not so affected from a gentle Southerly swing.
    A lot of heat in the ground and the house to be moved on.
