And the August drought rolls on here.... Dry Southeasterly and the ground is like a rock.

Maybe something on Sunday (up to 10mm), then hairdryer for a week or so. Do not like. The -ve IOD has not delivered. Disappointing.
Doesn't look like much between now and mid September TBH. Perhaps a bit in the south around Sunday.
Systems still peaking over WA and sliding south by the time they get here.

intermintent VERY light rain and chilly wind up until about 1pm, then fined up.

Good drink Sunday hopefully then.. WTF.. 25! this time next week! That wasn't there this morning.. Heard a BOM on the radio earlier today say something like that and thought I was hearing Mildura numbers,as Melb was,still saying 18 - 20 odd.. Apparently not.. PLEASE.. let's not have a dry spring. On top of Covid I need some interesting weather!

Saw that on the radar.
Still dry here but probably not for long.
Some good totals out in East Gippsland. 60mm at the Mt Cann fire tower.
Looks like @Big_Red_60 has had some decent rain.
Yeah, been a damp week. Not massive totals for us, but classic East Gippsland rain - good soaking light rain. We're at 30mm this morning and had steady light rain all day. Apparently meant to be heavy at times overnight. It has been bloody cold though - didn't crack double digits today.

Strange looking radar ATM for Melb.. You don't see that very often. Few light showers observed while working essentially around the Eastern Burbs today, no more than a few spits observed at home as yet, but the radar suggests it may thicken up out this way shortly. Have left the car out for a rinse which it desperately needs.. probably just turn it to set concrete..

Certainly felt strange today. Humid and almost like an summer storm is approaching (looking at the sky around lunchtime). Warmer than the past couple of days but still cold.
Had a couple of light showers here too.
Looking at that radar it certainly does look like it's creeping in.

I was thinking the same re felt like a storm coming. Saw some CU going up over Northern ranges but didn't actually check the radar till I got home.

Very strange why August is well under average rainfall only 20mm out of 58.6mm average month.

The Outback heat is starting mature to blow warm to hot when SE Australia get NW wind swing.

BOM saying wet spring.

couple mm overnight.

Pretty solid blob of rain for everything N-E of the CBD.

Looks to clear mid morning..... hopefully a sunny arvo again.

Yesterday was an absolute ripper.

Looks like once this band clears we will get another burst of showers around lunchtime on the SW change. No sunny arvo I don't thin.. sorry. Nice surprise 3mm approx overnight. Still going ATM. So with a few more mm this arvo ill be happy. Cant wait for my weather station to arrive!

Been raining on and off here all day, and feels like it has set in for next hour or two. Beautiful day yesterday, got the greyhounds down to the beach for a run. Pretty rough after the last week, with waves right up the beach.

Breezy today, although it's dropped off now.
65 kph at the Airport and 63 kph at St Kilda marina (both between 1 and 2pm).
Looks like tomorrow is very similar with strong gusty winds from midmorning.

absolute day of days today. Real COVID spreading kinda day.

Tomorrow looking a bit yucky, but the warmth out of the wind will be very ple
People being outside in the fresh air leads to more spreading of the spicy cough? Hmm, not so sure, especially on a weekday. Perhaps if the infecterinos are going around to people's homes for backyard barbecues.

Looks like a decent spring rain event on its way. Should see a few stream rises in the high country, some snow melt adding to it.

Melb's water storages closing in on 81% full, it's good to see.
