    Some big-ole towers passing through Nambucca Heads/Coffs. Steering winds forcing most of it onshore.

    [​IMG] Beastly on the end of the run. Ark time if this verifys the low out to the east, would ride the ridge west a double whammy.

    Only 74 mm here yesterday.
    Still raining - heavier and more consistently than yesterday, with storms forecast also.
    Wet.

    As far as the snow season goes I am certainly ok with a mild La Nina phase, although it's somewhat going against model outcomes.
    That said, we can find solace in the fact of the model's have low accuracy at this time of year.

    Very summery & dry near Ballarat atm. Even the nights are mild. Looking forward to the cooler Autumn weather when it arrives.

    Humid as this morning in Central Vic (DP currently 20c). Feels primed to go Boom this afternoon/evening.

    Looking forward to seeing some cooler weather soon.

    Done.

    Very muggy in Melbourne. Waiting for the proper front to clear the crap out.

    Some cells now popping up on the Melb Metro radar. One in the Yarra Valley, and a couple over Melton and Meredith. A line of cells has crossed over from the Riverina and over the Murray, now heading south into Central and NE Vic.
    STW out for a large swathe of Victoria, including Melbourne:

    Trough line building to the NNE of Melbourne, moving S. I am thinking the arse will fall out of it as nightfall takes hold.
    Should reach the city limits in the next 1.25 hours.
    But it does look to linger until later into the week which is quiet unique for Southern Vic.

    This is handy but use with some degree of caution (the above is actually for 11am local, using 6 hour old data), as you can see it can never be reliable as BOM's obs which clearly slow some variance:

    It might not make it to Melbourne. Seabreeze is killing most of the storms that come near Melbourne and the coast. Tomorrow is going to be a soaker for Melbourne, 20-35mm with the front

    Seabreeze is weakening as we speak, maybe the skyline will be lit up tonight.

    Seems localised and shallow (bay breeze?).
    I think Eastern Burbs will get a little soaking out of this. Firing up over Flowerdale.

    This particular tropical feed taps into a MJO above Australia before it weakens completely.

    Squal line starting to weaken and break up around Northern outer subs of Melbs.
    ~5mm in some locations still possible, IMO.

    Hence comment about MJO. That feed has to come from somewhere.

    I see exactly where Andrew's coming from in that statement.

    GFS Polar Vortex Forecast looking really juicy IMO. Andrew is onto something. We'll see where SAM goes and the stratosphere set up. Nothing is locked in, but it looks like Autumn is coming.
