    Sydney water temperatures have taken a step down in the last few days, and moved finally towards a more normal temperature for the time of year. At Palm Beach where I surf I would say the drop in the last 5 days (from last Sunday to both yesterday and today) is from about 22C down to about 19C.

    Will be interesting to see if it holds down at that level or goes lower over the next week or two (which it should do), or bumps back upwards: the last two winters in particular have been decidedly non-wintery in the water in Sydney.

    Not really. Warm & moist is more preferred in those circles.

    I think you'll be fine things dry up significantly on Friday AM. Might get the odd shower but I'd anticipate a cold, dry drive across SMH. IMO

    Stumbled home from drinks tonight in Melbourne. A brisk 4c on the way home. My face and ears are glowing from the cold.

    Plan on being up at 6am to head into the city for a freezing sunrise.

    These are the moments that i live for in Melbourne and why I love our city so much.

    Interesting it was wind dependent as soon as some wind picked up back above 0 and then when calm back down to -5c or so and then if calm for a bit longer -7c or -10c in some areas.

    Currently at the shrine of remembrance. It's damn cold. For Melbourne town anyway. Lots of frost on the ground around in the gardens and grass.

    1c

    Something on EC on the 14th, but GFS doesn't agree and the temperatures look a bit crap.

    14th system on GFS showing only a shallow trough as it crosses the Bight but does show reasonable Frontogenesis and moisture. What follows behind does however look intrigueing.
