    GFS out to 8th December shows it nice in dry in Victoria. For a change.

    Central QLD, on the other hand looks to be smashed.

    Not warm by any means though. Can't open the pool where I work until Monday. Needs to be forecast at least 22 degrees in Latrobe Valley to open. Rare you see such a long succession of cool days this time of year.

    Well a couple of years ago we saw a record number of days with the max temp was >20C, over 120 days I think it was. I dont want that again.

    The trough pattern I was seeing originally from the 7th then shifted to the 8th and is now looking like CC's call of the 9th/10th. Weird. Looks widespread too, but not as heavy at this stage. Once again ruins the weekend [​IMG]

    System for late next week starting to firm up, and again good totals of rainfall to be had.

    EC showing 30mm (Melbourne) Friday through Sunday.

    Is the point of these threads Australian weather or is it about weather anywhere? [​IMG]

    Looks like a very slight dusting of snow at Baw Baw this morning.

    Models all winding back the precipitation for the weekend in the SE. 5mm or so now for Melbourne.
    Hobart looks wet for the test (Friday and Saturday).

    ACCESSG moving it to Monday though

    GFS likes Saturday

    But nothing like the big totals that were showing earlier in the week!

    Bears donot like getting wet feet and hope that we will get a hot dry summer shortly.
    And they are hoping for a day at Moggs Ck so they can catch up on their surfing bear friends!
    [​IMG]

    They are hoping that Claude Cat will provide details so they know when to head down to coast?? [​IMG]
    Wednesday last week was traumatic for little bears who had to use gut cunning to
    avoid wet feet.

    It still looks unsettled for a bit yet. Tomorrow should be ok, but not hot. Looks to be warming up in the SE end of next week.

    Opposite problem for me... 3 days of work lined up at the pool (Monday to Wednesday), all 3 are looking too cold to open. [​IMG]

    Some storm cells over Baw Baw at the moment, looking quite impressive from my window.

    Tomorrow looks more likely for storms than today, and early next week the CAPE will be off the chart in northern parts of the country.

    It looks like some moderate wind and light showers moving in to Melbourne today/this arvo, with some more showers and rain tomorrow. This afternoon could get interesting and we may see a storm but it doesnt look at likely as tomorrow.

    Not much CAPE or LI for today in Victoria.
    As Verm says tomorrow evening appears the best chance of storms in Vic.

    Booming thunder and pelting down in outer SE Melbourne. Saturated in under 5 mins when caught out on the ride-on mower.

    Recon we might see some action from the cell over Mt Buller way - assuming it makes it here. Seems to be lining up in the right direction.

    Yeah we got plenty here, havent checked the gauge yet but the lakes into my estate were pretty full.

    Not that it'll add any more mud into the water tomorrow morning for me though [​IMG] Already too much there!

    Today hasn't panned out as expected. Drier, windier than first thought.
    Thunderstorm warnings back up for Melbourne.
    Looks to be passing south of the CBD - Werribee getting smashed, looks like it will hit Frankston / Carrum way then help Verm wash his boat down.

    Strange little phenomena this afternoon. 20c when I left Thredbo, slightly overcast but no rain, 15c and raining in Jindabyne.

    Not often that I've seen the temp in Jindy lower than in Thredbo on a summer afternoon

    GFS off the richter for us in VIC from next Sunday, AXS looking like it wants it to arrive Saturday, but not as heavy. Could be a good beach-fishing weekend with the Northerlies, doesnt look like boating weather that's for sure.

    Looks like no work at the pool for me for over a week now. [​IMG]

    This one may confine itself to northern Vic, so it can stay away from Gippsland for a change!

    We are really wet down here in the outer SE subs too, we got a good dumping this weekend. Grass is spastic I have to mow every weekend, it's the same as last year [​IMG]

    Closest BoM rainfall station to us with a long history (110 years) of recording is at Mirboo North. The annual average there is 1019mm. So far this year we've had 1235mm, which is just under 20mm away from the 90th percentile. Highest on record is over 1500mm, no hope of getting there.

    Since yesterday morning there's been 25mm. Not as much as Melbourne, but a lot better than expected.

    Tanks are full, and it is still impossibly muddy in the backyard!
