Just saw in fb snow down to 10 mile car park at Mt Donna Buang.
Thought it felt chilly this evening.
Cool! Yes temps around 7C is cool with rain, even in a Melbourne winter.

Hopefully this is good for Lake Mtn, BB and even Buller. Might miss the majors?
It certainly felt outside the cinema tonight. Next week looks much milder, despite the predicted rain.

Quite fresh with a few showers just before 6am. Roads wet again all the way to the office.
Getting a bit of sunshine now. Looks to be clear and cold tomorrow, with a shower or two Sunday afternoon.

20mm here for the week. We never quite got a stream that we often do that really kicks the totals high! Either way, it's wet enough! Looks like a decent weekend outside anyway, especially up here where it won't get as cold overnight.
Bad luck Luken, we got 45mm here in Olinda taking our MTD to 108mm.
Certainly getting chilly out there as the sun sets, might get our first frost of this winter though frost is very rare here, always much colder down below at night.

Jumped the wall to Mexico
Proper icy as expected. Car wasn’t in the garage last night. Thick ice and a little warming before we could go out for early breakfast. And most cars in the street we passed looked the same. 1c on the car on the way there and 2c when we came back before 9. Looks delightful though!!

A whiter shade of pale
It got down to -1.5 early this morning on the northeast outskirts. Not enough to freeze the birdbaths but an interesting formation of an ice stick in my experimental dish of water.

The cars left outside had a thin sheet of ice on them. Brand new car with 6km on the odometer that had lived all its so far brief life coddled indoors, came to its new home yesterday and had a rude awakening by spending its first night outdoors. It’s now wondering what the actual….?

It will spend tonight back indoors.

Gorgeous sunny day now though with a light cool breeze. Great day for drying the washing.

@Pommie, as for rainfall, we've had less than half of your total. Only 46mm for the entire month, with only 17mm of that this passed week

Milder, overcast and windy still today. Generally unappealing outside.
Looks like some rain out Horsham way, we might see a little bit of it tonight.

Yes horrid wind here for two days now. BOM never seem to have a clue about winds up here on the mountain. 15-25 kmh forecast, whereas 45-65 kmh is what we've had with a few dangerous gusts on top.
Rain looks to be starting to break through the force field now.

Cracking morning. None of that rain actually impacted the metro area, looks like the hills got 1mm or less.
Weather looking clear until Wednesday (rain very early am and again in the late evening) .

Pleaee dont push the rain on to The alps! ;)

Starting to blow up now.
Went for a jog at lunch (midday) for 45mins and it was slowly getting more gusty, but it is warm, for the 2nd August.
Looking forward to getting the next 4-5 days out of the way. Not going to be all that nice/motivating

Pretty scary night up here with loud crashing and banging all around.
Haven't been out yet but can see at least one huge branch down which has taken out the fence in our ponies yard and broken the shed roof.
Going to be a lot of clearing up to do today. :(

Didn't seem to be so bad down in Canterbury. Not much evidence of the wind either, hardly any debris on the roads or paths.
A bit of a slog of a ride into work, expected the wind to be worse though. Very mild 13C currently. Looks like most of the metro area got around 1mm. Radar looks clear now and not expecting anything for the rest of the day either.

Yuck Pommie, sorry to hear. Yes lots of noise here last night too. Few small to medium branches down, but no damage thankfully.

Had a few large drops of rain on the ride home last night, about 1 every 10 seconds lol
Grey, overcast & and that wind from the north is still quite strong.
Models say dribs and drabs of rain from late morning, I'm not so convinced.

Yeh, showers leaking through the force-field now.
Looks like we'll get showers for the next 2 or 3 hours if the radar is to be believed.

We've had light showers blowing through since late morning, gauge is showing less that 1mm.

I blame myself for cleaning out road culvert and crossover before this 'event' so my drive doesn't wash away
