Looks like the ranges are splitting it - the northern edge is running a bit slower that the southern edge (presumably as it first hits the hills). Sound consolidate closer to the CBD. Off to Mount Dandy lookout for a better view.

BTW notice that it is now up to 17C up here (the hottest for the day) so still plenty of opportunity.

PS is bit of an odd band laying back so far (NW-ES - usually these run a little more N-S).

Let us know what you view mate Smile I would do the same but by the time I get up there it would be too late.

I think we will find out in the next half hour how we go.

I think there is a 50/50 chance of missing out now but some good viewing elsewhere to the south and NW.

Time will tell Smile

You putting the Mozz over for us out this way Karl? Laughing I would hope not bounce

Heard reports of it pouring in Lara also heard stastic on the radio in the past few minutes.

I actually think the Western suburbs is in the prime position this time its really reving up that Northern part of the band and angleing in ESE straight to the Western suburbs

9 times out of 10 I completely miss out in these situations so no excitement here at all. Atmosphere is unstable ahead of the band with Cj going up around the range but it is still that sort of cool air stuff which packs less punch generally. Of course organised along a line it has the potential to create some decent weather.

Plenty of convection about so it is certainly not over. Lots of highcloud about so this suggests numerous redevelopment phases within the diurnal cycle today so it could reform one more time.

Nice tops to the NE around the Warburton region with pileus.

8C drop at Cerebus with 3mm of rain in quick time and should clock up about 5-10mm there and similar for Phillip Island at this time. Not much wind with it. About 30-35 knots which is about par in these situations.

I think the main area of thunderstorms is now in that Ballarat region.

Looks similar to when Lilydale got hit last time, but more Westerly and less chance of cell convergence from N to S.

I really hope your wrong karl, we are long overdue for a decent storm out this way.

wow did the You Yangs, split that rain band? Some very interesting looking clouds out there at the moment, but the radar just looks like it is moving down away from here, and the band around Ballarat I think may ead towards the Macedon Ranges.

Ballarat cells seems to be weakening....will this be a non-event due to lack of warmth from now onwards?

Rumbles a-plenty here in Ballan, and becoming increasingly dark. Not that I am complaining Smile

Took some tasty pics of the approaching line. Shall upload tonight and spread the love!

Hi there Sebastian...enjoy the weather mate!!

I think it will be a non event in Melbourne but around the region there is some fairly good results, to the NW and SE but still some time.

Warmth not the issue ILS.

Just had a look again out there and plenty of knuckles across the western and southwestern sky so it is regenerating!! Very odd sky out there..

Could be reforming quickly!

Seems to be developing along the wind change at the moment. Winds still yet to shift here. Development seems to be rapid north along the line between Ballarat to Paky.

It's getting quite dark outside as that cell from ballarat approaches but is definately weakening.

Sky was dark and just lit up now in Moorabbin, however only an isolated shower band passing through.

Looks like Bacchus Marsh and Pakenham are getting some heavy falls.

Should form a line in the clear slot between Ballarat to Paky. I cannot beleive the depth of roll cloud as it came through here, almost a shelf cloud. Pics to follow.

Looking more likely now for showers and thunder.

The line suddenly intensified just as it past over here got fairly heavy for a few minutes, no thunder that I heard. Had around 3mm's, here and the temps dropped from around 19c at 5pm to just 13c now. http://cranny.bigpondhosting.com/

Gone very dark now and the wind has quickly picked up.
Will be happy with one rumble.

a cell seems to have developed to the west of melton. Clouds look impressive as they have for a while now, but only now has it started to drizzle. But I expect something nice in the next half an hour.
And now it's getting slightly heavier Smile

Been out the front and had a look towards Cranbourne/Pakenham, black as black in that direction. It's got progressively darker here in the last 20 or so minutes and just waiting to see if that cell in the Oakleigh area makes it here or skirts just past us. We've had one or two drops of rain, but nothing as yet, just gone very calm here. My ten year old son is enjoying running around from front to back of the house and watching the clouds move rapidly over us - I'm training him well Smile
