In the outer north east it looked like even Mother Nature wildly celebrated the start of another inbetween lockdown phase.
Wind has been absolutely insane. A few trees received a walloping. I think someone will be looking for some new real estate.
Temperatures bounced around like a yo-yo. At 1am, it was 16, still 15 degrees at 5am, dropped down to around 12 at 9am, back up to 15 around midday and even hitting 17 early afternoon, before finally plunging down to 11 after 3pm. Now in single Digits. Earlier today,flashes of strobe lightning were followed by loud rumbling whoops of joy. Ice confetti was sprinkled about. Mammatus clouds bubbled with excitement.
Oddly, lots of sun inbetween a couple of good storms and we had Rainbow coloured streamers across the sky.
The sky brewed up a party from one horizon to the other at sunset. Anvil clouds, lenticular clouds and just about everything inbetween
Our weather station recording 40k gusts, and it's slightly protected by neighbouring trees. Winds swinging between the west and nth-easterly.
Moorabbin airport recording 74k gusts.
Still so much up here to be cleaned up. Amazing how many massive truck loads of wood they keep bringing out still. Its like the Dandenongs is being logged.
Glad it is being put to good use seen as there is a timber shortage but still sad to see how much has come down. Friends gf works for Melb water and they estimated 8 months just to clean up Silvan reservoir.
Just constant gust up here for last week.. Typical, stinky, pretty bloody windy day here in Bel Sth.. Blowing its tits! off The trees are so used to it they just bend and say is that all u got! Few branches down but thats it, house creaks here and there..
Gorgeous weekend function at a winery in the Yarra Valley.A year delayed due to Covid, but the weather was worth the wait. Blue skies with a couple of light puffy clouds, warm with a breeze yesterday. Today was even more beautiful, the breeze had subsided leaving clear blues skies. Light misty fog hugged the distant ranges in the morning.
It was so mild at home in Melbourne’s north east outskirts on Saturday that our birdbaths had evaporated before we left home. It must have rained heavily overnight as our birdbaths were full when we got home this afternoon. The rainfall map says we received about 22mm
What a beautiful winter day to spend in our spectacular city!
Pure sunshine and blue skies shining in 15 degrees, with a light cool breeze. Much the same back at home in the north east foot hills tis afternoon.
Winter colour is blooming in the city’s gardens
Even the lorikeets are making the most of it and getting into the swim of things
