    Couple of small cells appearing in South Gippsland now. Doesn't feel anywhere near warm enough in Melbourne though.

    Wouldn't get too stressed yet. Not much agreement in models. GFS has the system sliding south.

    Gfs looks interesting.
    Axs looks benign
    EC looks realistic

    Well here we go. A little unexpected but looking at the soundings and the heating that occurred today i'm not entirely surprised.

    Looks like it'll all be north of me so I might sit on my deck and watch the show.

    And just some light reading from one of my forecaster mates from the BoM (who just happens to live in Pakenham - Shameless plug follow his FB page Pakenham Weather), explaining the fog we had the other day:

    It was a foggy start to the day in ‪#‎Pakenham‬ which is relatively rare during summer. Wonder what caused it?
    Yesterday morning's rainfall increased moisture while a ridge of high pressure quickly moved over the area resulting in a cloud free night and light winds. This in turn allowed the near ground humid airmass to cool to what is called the 'dewpoint temperature'; the temperature at which the air needs to cool to condense and form cloud, resulting in fog.

    Be sure to mention the fact we're all a bit pissed that our WC match didn't go ahead either.

    Anyway, was shocked to read on the BOM that one of these tiny little cells that popped up around Melbourne today dropped 22mm at North Wharf (Docklands). Intense little thing

    Similar to yesterday - small, isolated cells. Just looking now, there's a lot of cumulus building over the Dandenongs and out the Yarra Valley way. Looks like it's building

    that thing just to the west of the bay was chucking out some good lightning as I was driving home. Had Metallica playing so the thunder was for whom the bells toll, but I think i heard some distant rumbles.
    Not moving at all, but would be interesting to see what the warm bay does to it if it decides to move east.

    Air just got a tad cooler here in Aspendale, SE Melbs
    Not blowing much so will take a while to cool things down
    Hard to tell if it will rain here by looking at the sky - looks menacing though
