    Getting some stronger winds gusts now, with Melbourne Airport gusting over 70km/h.

    A whiter shade of pale
    Yesterday’s remnants of misty mizzle brought some evening colour to the sky.



    A chilly morning with a low of a little under 5 overnight. Sunny early morning gave way to a blanket of cloud. Perfect for exploring some parks and gardens of the Dandenongs.

    Parks Vic busily maintaining precarious trees throughout the Dandenongs. Sad to see such huge and ancient giants go, but understandable of course.

    Coats required today, a wintery chill brushing the smile on my face. Wind gusts created a whooshing symphony through the tall Mountain Ash which protected us from anything stronger than a breeze. Most times the hills blocked the wind completely and all was calm and still.





    Last traces of autumn clung stubbornly to a few trees. How’s the serenity





    Some haze also clung around the valley looking to Donna Buang, Toolangi and surrounding ranges. Glimpses of blue sky from around lunchtime, then clouds broke up more mid-afternoon for some lovely mild and sunny breaks.



    Wind has increased and is gusty at home in the north east outskirts tonight.

    Showers rolling through Melbourne now.
    Perhaps I should have brought my raincoat for my ride home.

    Intense but short lived shower through here (Richmond) just recently, then some sun and blue sky. Looks like it will be a series of rinse and repeat

    It's dead mate. Saw one boat and a jetski when bringing the barge into shore.

    Fishing the pondage tomorrow with the young fella. Heap of carp around Taylor/Bolte Bay and closer to the bakery for a coffee or 3!

    A line of showers rolling through the CBD from the WSW.
    Doesn't look like any more than a mm or two.

    A couple of very light showers here bit nothing really in the gauge. Looks like some more on the way. Definitely cooler.

    Typical mid-autumn day on the Lake.
    Patches of blue sky and some warmth when the wind dropped. Chilly when overcast conditions were accompanied by the breeze. A few drops of rain in the past hour but not enough to stop us cruising Taylor Bay.



    Fishing was not successful, but three hours with the lad enjoying a bit of quiet (non-tech) time is always great.

    And it's felt like winter all day. It's crawled to 14C and back on the way down. Not much warmer elsewhere in the city.

    Thanks to Sun moved away to Northern Hemisphere will not burn off any trapped clouds in the SE Australia.
    Overcast all day yesterday and today maybe.

    Need NWW winds to break it off...

    Quiet nice out there, washing almost dry. Tomorrow looking cold and showery, BawBaw should see a few cents.

    Edit- BawBaw could see 15+cm, looks good!

    EC showing 10-15mm tomorrow afternoon, with GFS in the 5-10mm range - for the city.
    Definitely a wintery feel for the day.

    Winds on the increase with a few large drops of rain when driving through Blackburn.

    Sunrise this morning was nice.

    Pretty ineffectual front.
    Short period of rain, but on the whole it's less than 5mm across the city, with not much to come.

    Certainly brewed up since earlier, but it does look to clear mostly in the next hour.

    Just checked wunderground, 8c and 15.5mm of rain at home.
    On duty this evening, super wet on the roads around the eastern burbs.
    Happy if there's not much left in it.

    Is there such a thing? Or just the fact that in such weather, people predominantly stay indoors, meaning respiratory illnesses and viruses, like the Spicy Cough, are more easily transmitted?

    Thankfully the Pangolin’s Revenge isn’t in the Victorian community, but I won’t be surprised to see a spike in tests, given we might see more coughing and sneezing about.

    Neighbour had a good sized tree snap just after 1900hrs this evening.
    Water-logged and gave up the ghost.
    Fortunately no property damage.
    SES arrived within the hour and job done! :thumbs::thumbs:

    Was slow going on the roads for a couple of hours, but agree it didn't seem that much.
    We had 18mm at home. 5c when I got up this morning. Foggy when I did the primary school run.
    Still only 8c now. Fires on and might stay on all day.
