Geezus.. Its bloody windy up here in Bel South.. Waiting for a crash, but I'm guessing this is nothing compared to the peak we get up here. Absolutely nothing of us to the NW past Macedon. Compared to Mitcham im in an fing wind tunnel! Wow its loud! Got lots of wood cut, brilliant sunset, looking forward to the next few days.
Welcome to the Hooooooood!!

Wind is nuts. Some scary gusts and we have worse to come.
Got a heap of wood cut here today too. Going to need it this week.

Very Windy in Adelaide and just light in Bendigo... Cold Altitude Pool on way look intresting where Cut off Upper low start the bang.
yes it is quite windy here. First a northerly during the day with topsoil suspended in the air, then cold westerlies after about 430pm with showers.

Looks like a dragons head about to smash us good! Was just about to post the same image..

Huge winds here before midnight, didn't hear much after that but was asleep.. probably explains it.. Not a huge amount of rain, gotta get a gauge setup, and a anemometer. Pretty unspectacular day today, missed a decent shower on my way down the hill early afternoon, but looking like tomorrow gonna be wild! Haven't yet experienced SSW/SSE winds here, can imagine they won't be much less nasty as the northerlies, although we are "slightly" more sheltered from that direction.. but not much..

Get the torches and aux lighting organised!

Southerlies don't normally affect us, but they're forecast to be peaking around 100kmh+ from the SE....so anything is possible

Ah yes life in the Dandy ranges wouldn’t be the same without the outages! We get smashed from the NW but in the lee and downward from the SE. Occasionally that comes in handy.

Nice to see some sunshine to start the day. Still 4.7c here. Not going to warm up much today. Showers already incoming from the S/SE.
We had 27mm in the yesterday. Today’s going to be interesting, BOM predicting a little more for the ranges to the north and east.

Humid, cool but no rain this morning. Managed my 2 hour ride without getting wet.
Looks like some stuff moving in from the SE now.

We're being rain-shadowed by Mt Macedon. That said, the countryside is starting to look a bit better of late compared to 2 weeks ago.
